Do The Meditation Rock

Do the Meditation Rock
Allen Ginsberg

If you want to learn how to meditate
I’ll tell you now ’cause it’s never too late
I’ll tell you how ’cause I can’t wait
it’s just that great that it’s never too late
If you are an old fraud like me
or a lama who lives in Eternity
The first thing you do when you meditate
is keep your spine your backbone straight
Sit yourself down on a pillow on the ground
or sit in a chair if the ground isn’t there
if the ground isn't there
if the ground isn't there
Sit where you are if the ground isn't there

Do the meditation Do the meditation
Do the meditation Do the meditation
Learn a little Patience and Generosity

Follow your breath out open your eyes
sit there steady & sit there wise
Follow your breath right outta your nose
follow it out where ever it goes
Follow your breath but don’t hang on
to the thought of your death in old Saigon
Follow your breath when thought forms rise
whatever you think it’s a big surprise
It's a big surprise
It's a big surprise
Whatever you think its a big surprise
Do the meditation Do the meditation
Do the meditation Do the meditation
Learn a little Patience and Generosity
Generosity Generosity Generosity yeah Generosity

All you got to do is to imitate
you’re sitting meditating and you’re never too late
when thoughts catch up but your breath goes on
forget what you thought about Uncle Don
Laurel Hardy Uncle Don Charlie Chaplin Uncle Don
See a vision come say Hello Goodbye
play it dumb but with an empty eye
if you want a holocaust you can recall your mind
it just went past with the Western wind

Do the meditation Do the meditation
Do the meditation Do the meditation
Learn a little Patience & Generosity
Generosity Generosity Generosity Generosity

I fought the Dharma and the Dharma won
If you see Apocalypse in a long red car
or a flying saucer sit where you are
If you feel a little bliss don’t worry about that
give your wife a kiss when your tire goes flat
when your tire goes flat
when your tire goes flat
keep your hard on under your hat
If you can’t think straight & you don’t know who to call
it’s never too late to do nothing at all
do nothing at all
do nothing at all
it's never to late to do nothing at all
Do the meditation follow your breath
so your body & mind get together for a rest
get together for a rest
get together for a rest
Relax your mind get together for a rest

Do the meditation Do the meditation
Do the meditation Do the meditation
Learn a little Patience and Generosity
Generosity Generosity Generosity Generosity

If you sit for an hour or a minute every day
you can tell the Superpower to sit the same way
you can tell the Superpower to watch and to wait
& to stop & meditate ’cause it’s never too late
No its never too late
It's never too late to tell the superpower to stop and meditate
No its never too late
It's never too late to tell the superpower to stop and meditate

Do the meditation Do the meditation
Do the meditation Do the meditation
Get yourself together lots of Energy
& Generosity Generosity Generosity yeah Generosity!
Generosity Generosity Generosity yeah Generosity!

i stare and wallow. reflect when it pertains to my mood. meditation does not suit my character. it is too menacing a notion - to let go. maybe one day. i am such a dreamer.
