Not really Collective.
I've been practicing since 1985 and so over time I've been able to develop my capacity for continuous meditation on retreats.
On a day-to-day level, I rarely sit for more than 1h 20m at a time.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
