F3 Meditation

I watched as Nikki sat in some kind of Yoga position in front of a statue of Buddha. An Indian Buddha, at that. It was easy to get lost in the different flavors of Buddhism, and it wasn't my strong suit.
"Do you meditate, Matthew?"

"Not in the way you mean." Not a good idea to bring up prayer to her.
"A shame. You could benefit from the focusing and restorative benefits of meditation."
"Like I don't spend enough time thinking."
"Meditation is about more than just thinking, Matthew. Bringing mind and body into focus is the key."
"I try not to focus on my body, too much."
"Perhaps you spend too much time focusing on mine."
"So don't invite me in to watch you meditate while in lingerie."
"Clothes are an illusion," but she couldn't pull it off with a straight face.
