Shaking Off Mud

I do these visualizations to meditate, sometimes. In one, I imagine all my financial/social obligations as a field of thick, clingy mud. It starts to pull me down, and I give myself to the Fire. The Fire burns brightly enough to dry the mud, and, as its vessel, I do too. We bake the mud into solid steps I can climb. We burn more. We burn brightly enough to cook the whole pit into a platform I can walk across. Finally, the Fire lifts me off the ground and all the mud, the flesh, falls away. The only obligation I have left is to keep burning.
