My fast began today at 13hh. I have never started a fast after lunch before.
Even though I have not missed my normal dinner time yet, the knowledge that I am fasting has brought an immediate edge to my attention. I have crossed an invisible line.
After today’s daily meditation, I feel calmer than usual. I have been building up to this experience for so long, really getting anxious about it the past couple of days, that I feel better now that it is here. We can dispense with anticipation. Now it is here!
