Toilet Seat Meditation

"The best place to meditate is on the pot. If you have a comfortable toilet seat and a stout lock on the door, there's no telling what great thoughts might emerge. Martin Luther dreamed up Protestantism whilst sitting on the toilet at Wittenburg monastery, and we know what a big movement that became."

Anton Lavey, essay in "The Devil's Notebook" - "Toilet Seat Meditation"

Maybe I shouldn't share this with you, but fuck it!!!

It's so true!!! Even if I don't have to go, I'll just go sit in the bathroom. I feel at ease, there... pensive and quiet... lol

Can't believe I'm not the only one!!!

I belive the saying gose "Sometimes I sits and thinks. Sometimes I just sits"
I have to admit I don't sit very long, my toilet seat has a crack in it with makes it uncomfortable but the only replacements I can find in the shops are transparent and have random objects floating in them. I don't know why but I just really couldn't stand to have a transparent toilet seat.
A glow in the dark one would be handy. I tend to not use most of the lights in the flat. I'm currently lit buy one candle and my monitor.

Your lighting:

Please make sure your candle is not by your monitor or permanently in front of you as you sit by your PC, this will be bad for your eyes. Also, on your montior you should check (this is especially important if you have no lights on, I sit in the dark nearly all the time too) that your contrast is turned up relatively high and your brightness doesn't hurt or cause discomfort.

I find shades of red are the best Windows-colors for your eyes in dark rooms.

I must admit I would like a couple of big iron candle stands so I can have more candles behind me.

I tend to keep most candles off to the side as best it can.

i wanna see a photoshop of a buddha or some dude in that meditation pose, s(h)itting on a toilet
