Holding *** when the muscle requires some effort directs attention to the lower body away from the eyes and the head area which is the normal place of reflection. It makes me think of releasing it and of the bathroom and toilet to do so, as if I was constructing a plan to carry out. The other muscles used to concentrate can be relaxed as the new concentration is on the bladder area. Yet this pulls the attention to the seat if seated, like placing attention on the foundation of the meditation posture. The focus spreads to the thighs and solar plexus. Finally to the back of the head, but with pressure that will not allow anything to replace it. The management mind states next that the task at hand is more pressing than bladder release. And I remember all the times I've had to hold my *** and the places and situations that precipitated them. I start to tell myself that I'm suffering needlessly as if I was being bullied by my situation. Thus the parts of the body actually take the center of the personality over other parts of the body. The managerial aspect will offer motherly comfort to the childlike personality of holding ***. I start to go into wishful dream mentality just like holding *** while in the early hours of the morning trying to still sleep. And the attention is tranquilized back to reflection with the hold tucked away in the background of the mind, reflection aspect now being more parental in nature. What is transcendence? is sort of a moronic question, and I notice my words start to be more bullyish. This question is rather asking is there a particle of transcendence? No, it is a function of frequencies of the body. Consciousness can be the essential aspect of transcending, but no more than consciousness is the essential of concentration. Tranquility and insight, just as taught, happens, without attention on tranquility, and without tranquility within attention.
