When I was younger, I used to sit in class during silent reading time and glance at all the faces around me and ask repetitively and quietly, "What am I, Where am I, Who am I?" After a few minutes, my mind would go blank, completely clear of all thoughts. I'd sit there for so many seconds in this blank state. Eventually, my thoughts and knowledge would start flooding back in. I was quite good at this from doing it daily.
Now that I'm older, I haven't been able to do it, and I wonder if what I used to experience was a form of meditation. It felt good to truly erase all the chaos from life and school from my mind and sit peacefully. I'd like to be able to do it again.
