Meditation

 

  Dr Buddha tells me, " I teach your Auntie Mary meditation,

she calls it hypnosis, but it's meditation, to help stop her

anxiety, her clinging. I'll do the same for you Jasper, so

you can be free of this unsatisfactory existence. That song 

they play on the radio by the Rolling Stones, " I Can't Get

No Satisfaction, "  that's how it is Jasper, of course you can't

get no satisfaction, in this conditioned existence, no one 

can. But if you study the Four Noble Truths you'll find 

happiness and peace.

  People don't know how to relax, they search for happiness

in the wrong things, in sex, drugs, money, you'll  never find

happiness in those things, let me teach you Jasper.

  You know Jasper you think too much, you've got a 

monkey mind, it never stops chattering. Thinking causes

suffering Jasper. Everytime you think, you suffer. It's better

to meditate Jasper, to have the peace of not thinking 

about anything.

  You know Jasper, Samsara gives most people just enough

happiness to stop them committing suicide, just enough

pleasure to keep them here so they might find Enlightenment.

But your Auntie Mary wants pleasure all the time, she 

always wants another  piece of cake, but if you keep on

eating cake you get sick. She hasn't realised that yet 

Jasper, she hasn't realised that desire is insatiable, and 

it cause suffering. "
