    SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO — LEVITATION!

    Someone asked me today during our Zazenkai if FOLKS IN ZAZEN CAN LEVITATE.

    Well, I am open minded about such things, but I have never seen so in person. The only photos I have seen look either like they have been photoshopped, or there is something wrong with the photo (such as the dark background above, and sleeves in these photo below which surely hide a platform) ...



    ... or the person is "bouncing" more than flying ... (and, hey, I give these fellows great credit for being even able to do this in the Lotus Posture!! Ouch!)



    I have had sensations like levitating off the ground during long Zazen, great lightness and motion, but that turned out not to be so when I looked down. Oh, the mind can play tricks during Zazen.

    HOWEVER ... I KNOW THAT LEVITATION EXISTS IN ZAZEN, FOR SURE! REAL LEVITATION IS ALWAYS IN ZAZEN ... FLYING EVERY WHERE AT ONCE!

    Today’s Sit-A-Long video follows at this link. Remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells; a sitting time of 20 to 35 minutes is recommended.

      Oh, we all turn into Golden Dragons each time we sit! Truly! And each and everything else too! I kid you not.

        Hmmm . . . well, I did just read the other day that scientists still haven't quite figured out how gravity actually works . . . so maybe . . .

            Endless time to make more circuits and bumps, I think.

            Thank you, Jundo,

              My wife levitates sometimes. The other day I spilled coffee on the carpet & she went through the roof.

                  Glad you got a high from it.

                  I just added a little video at the top on Yogic Flying, take a peek.

                    I have a lot to learn; take anything I say that sounds like teaching with a grain of salt.
