Simon Parke with support, 28 Mar 2014
It had been seven hours and fifteen days that I had been waiting for my opportunity to spend some quality time reading through Simon Parke’s latest book. I had started reading one (or two) meditations a day (as the introduction recommended), but I had become slightly impatient, and wanted to make more progress. The good news was that I had a planned train journey coming up, which represented a perfect opportunity to imbibe some of Simon Parke’s short - but deep - meditations. However - disaster struck. In the week before the train journey I purchased a Best of Sinead O’Connor CD. Now I had 2 items that were attempting to claim my available time. But I has a solution ! I would listen to the CD while reading Simon’s book - a perfect solution I thought. How wrong I was – my solution fell into the “Do not try this at home category”. My ears and eyes were in complete conflict. While Simon’s words spoke about calmness, stillness, and hard-earned wisdom, Sinead countered with pent-up fury. I was soon exhausted, wishing I had followed the advice in the introduction, and not allowed meditation to become a foreign language. On the positive side - if I had to pick one phrase to remember from that troubling train journey, it would surely be Simon’s unwritten motif – “Nothing compares to you”.
