A Lifetime Doing Nothing (Story 72 excerpt)

January 14, 2023

Story 72 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie
.

I think there is a place in our lives for tradition and even ritual. They keep our lives simple and understandable. In our family we have pancakes every Sunday and tea every evening. We go for walks together. We spend a month every summer at our cottage. We watch a movie every Friday night....

A Lifetime Doing Nothing (Story 71 excerpt)

January 11, 2023

Story 71 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie
.

The summer after high school, Tony, his younger brother Chris, and I set out in an old Vauxhall held together with spit and bailing wire for points west on the Trans-Canada Highway. We camped the entire way and cooked over an open fire. Once we reached the Pacific, we headed south to the Oregon hills before turning east and eventually home and university. On the way we camped near Mount Rushmore, hoping to see the famous presidential sculptures the next morning....

Story 70 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie
.

Bhante Rahula and I would meditate outside on some very flat but hard boulders because that summer was particularly hot. On this particular day, I crossed my legs and straightened my spine as usual. I closed my eyes, and almost immediately I felt nothing but subtle vibrating throughout my entire being. It appeared I had dissolved into pulsations. I felt no solidity. I had become a...

Story 69 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie
.

The more I investigate and dissect what I focus my attention on with clear comprehension, the more apparent becomes the changing nature of the mind and body. I don’t have to chase away any uncomfortable feelings or pains with alcohol or drugs or various distractions. I am less inclined to succumb to their whispered promise to stop being the person I am for this one evening and become...

Story 68 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie
.

On my way to school one bitterly cold winter's day, I passed a house in the early stages of being built. The workers were framing the roof. The wind was howling, the snow was blowing, and they kept at it because that is what we all must do. We choose our path…roofer, physicist, or, like me, a solo contemplative on a hilltop in India. But we hone our craft every day, even...

Story 67 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie

I was too thin to have good quality clothes fit me well. When I wore a suit, my head looked too small. When I turned my head while wearing a collar and tie, neither collar nor tie moved. Like a compass, my tie always pointed north. If it weren't for the sleeves, I could perform a full 360-degree rotation without my suit getting a wrinkle. But in the end,...

Story 66 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie

To be a Buddhist is to be a Stoic and to be a Stoic is to be a Buddhist. Neither is a religion. Mere belief in their precepts holds no purchase. Reciting them every morning proves futile. Both speak of universal truths and natural laws that govern human and social behavior. Both schools are empirical, which is to say they are evidence-based. And that itself is grounded or tested, even, on one’s own experience. They both conclude that...
