How to meditate

-lights out-
fall, hands a-clasped, into instantaneous
ecstasy like a shot of heroin or morphine,
the gland inside of my brain discharging
the good glad fluid (Holy Fluid) as
I hap-down and hold all my body parts
down to a deadstop trance- Healing
all my sickness- erasing all- not
even the shred of a "I-hope-you"or a
Loony Balloon left in it, but the mind
blank, serene, thoughtless. "When a thought
comes a-springing from afar with its held-
forth figure of image, you spoof it out,
you spuff it off, you fake it, and
it fades, and thought never comes- and
with joy you realize for the first time
"Thinking's just like not thinking-
So I don´t have to think

Jack Kerouac
