Potted Tulips

Three weeks ago i bought some potted tulips. I knew if i kept them indoors they would last about a week. So i placed them on the table on the deck, and they are still blooming. They've been rained on, snowed on, and iced up. Still, they bloom. They're more comfortable outdoors than in.

We need to be comfortable when we sit down to meditate, otherwise we won't want to sit. Where's your comfortable place? What's your comfortable position?

We could say the tulips are in a restricted environment: they lack the warmth, the electric lights, and the gadgets of the indoors. It helps our meditation if we restrict our environment. Turn off the devices and let yourself bloom.
