Grasping Gratitude

    Learning to maintain an attitude of gratitude is at the centre of many modern teachings, and Seekers are encouraged to be mindful about every day miracles and be grateful.
    Giving thanks as an expression of faith is a familiar idea. Prayers, mantras and chants have been written to be said with meals, for the day we are starting or closing, and for other events which have kindled feelings of gratitude within us.
    In the culture where I grew up gratitude was expected, ...

Don't Remember, Don't Forget

     “Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgementally,” says Jon Kabat-Zinn, “It’s about knowing what is on your mind.”
     In 1979, Jon Kabat-Zinn created an eight-week stress-reduction program which research has since proven to improve mental and physical health, greater well-being, and perceived health. His work is known as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction.

Life is Like Ice Cream

Life is Like Ice Cream

    The 1994 film Forrest Gump popularized the idea that ‘Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.'

 
[image shows the tray inside a box of chocolates, with twenty different candies covered in light, dark and white choclate]
       It is an idea that balances the promise of  future delights with uncertainty. Whether we feel patience or anxiety about the prospect is within our control.
     This week I heard an online lecture from Abraham Hic...

This Place Where I Am

The fourteenth century mystic and poet, Hafiz, wrote: “This place where you are right now, God circled on a map for you.”

     I have days when I resist what is happening in my life, and I believe that at one time or another we all are capable of wishing life was different. This line from Hafiz is a good reminder to pay attention.
     The place, the situation and the circumstances of where we are in any given moment, is a part of the grand design of life. There is so...

September 12th

 


     If you find yourself forgetting where you parked the car, or where you put the keys, then a small Mindfulness practice might help!
     Mindfulness is not connected with any religious group or movement, it is identified with personal development and the quest for self-knowledge.
     September 12th has been designated the day to discuss and to share ways of being mindful; with the idea that we learn about it and make it a part of our regular routine. Mindfulness is a pra...
