“Mr. Duffy lived a short distance from his body.” - James Joyce
In his short story “A Painful Case,” Joyce portrays Mr. Duffy as a meticulous bureaucrat drifting through a colorless and aimless life, cut off from his body and his feelings. While you may not feel as disconnected from your body as poor Mr. Duffy, at times you may have had the experience of meditation practice unfolding only in your head.
