Kindness, gratitude have permanence, I sense it strongly!

.



.
.
.
The most valuable possessions I own are not physical, not concrete, not insurable, not touchable.
.
.
It must not be a house, car, jewelry, job, or title.
.
.
I value my gratitude, my giving, my practice, my special relationships more than all else.
.
.
When I sit, let go, empty my mind, and enter this present moment, this breath is all I need.
.
.
It is a much simpler and rewarding way to live.
.
.
We do not have to be an accomplished meditator to change our life drastically.
.
.
.

So mindfulness exposes the nature of thought, emotion and body sensation!

.

.
.
.
Mindfulness in full swing curtails the proliferation of thought and emotion at times.
.
.
This ability exposes the brilliance of experiencing life unencumbered in this present moment.
.
.
The road less traveled, the journey we were meant to experience reveals itself.
.
.
We are not accomplishing, defeating, competing, winning or losing anything to anyone, we are focusing, emptying, accepting and finally surrendering to now.
.
.
If we add gratitude and loving kindness giving, giving without regard for reward, our practice deepens exponentially.
.
.
The rest takes care of itself. This journey has become brilliant,,special.
.
.
This journey is lived in this present moment, brilliant, unbelievable in depth and opportunity.
.
.
What a reward for such a simple practice.
.
.
Take up the yoke and change your life drastically, magically!
.
.
.

Mindfulness is simple, the depth of practice can be enormous

Excerpt From: Catherine, Shaila. “Focused and Fearless.”
.
.
“As the momentum of mindfulness increases, “concentration correspondingly strengthens.
.
.
The concentration that develops through a continuity of mindfulness with changing objects is called “momentary concentration.”
.
.
The mind momentarily collects, but then it disperses as the flow of sensory experiences ebbs and alters.
.
.
Thinking can arise, but the thoughts do not diminish the concentrated state.
.
.
Mindfulness inhibits proliferations of thought because it meets the experience of thinking immediately.

.
.
The content of thought relates only to the phenomena at hand.”

Sit For 7 Years Accumulative In Silent Retreat And The Breath Has This Depth::: Presenting Shaila Catherine

.

.



.
.
.
“When the breath is used to develop mindfulness,
.
.
emphasis is placed on clear perception of changing sensations through the full duration of an inhale and exhale.
.
.
With tremendous precision, the meditator experiences a multitude of fleeting sensations:
.
.
tingles, vibrations, pressure, heat, for instance.
.
.
Pressure may increase or decrease.
.
.
Pulsing may vary in rhythm.
.
.
The intensity of heat or cold may fluctuate.
.
.
This meticulous sensitivity to physical variations brings the mind to a state of exquisite clarity
.
.
that allows you to see the impermanent and empty nature of phenomena and
.
.
witness the relationship between the mind and body.
.
.
.
You can observe how sights and smells can trigger vivid memories,
.
.
how intentions affect physical movements,
.
.
and how emotions manifest in the body.”

How happy are you? Constructing your answer!

.
Brighton at his Moms birthday!

People have
.
ready-made
.
answers
.
to many questions
.
about themselves;
.
they know
.
their name,
.
their address,
.
and their
.
party affiliation.
.
.
But they
.
do not
.
generally know
.
how happy
.
they are,
.
and they
.
must
.
construct
.
an answer
.
to that
.
question,
.
whenever it
.
is raised.
.
.
-DANIEL KAHNEMAN –
.
.
.
That means we have zero awareness of happiness or where it exists.
.
.
Find happiness, then work backwards.
.
.
Happy is not around when thought, judgment, doubt, and unworthy promulgate life.

Time Steals Awareness,,,, Chances Of Living In This Moment!

.



.
.
.
.
Take the element of time out of parts of your day.
.
.
Yes, time steals our awareness, somehow transports us into living by concepts of too slow, rushing, multitasking, always behind, past the deadline, running late.
.
.
Check out your awareness when you think you are running late. While driving ever get in the way of someone running late for work or a appointment. We have rush hour, now.
.
.
If your late, what happens to the task at hand. Do we speed up more than usual. Do we pay less attention or no attention to now.
.
.
Being late steals awareness from now.
.
.
You can not get now back, it is gone, lost, wasted on a concept, like time.
.
.
Step back and eliminate time from parts of your day, certain tasks, leisure time.
.
.
Do things without any “Time” frame involved.
.
.
Hell, we even time our meditation sits.
.
.
Love,,happiness are not connected with time, in fact, love and happiness are timeless..
.
.
Mindfulness is timeless, we let go of thoughts, especially about time and just exist in the now.
.
.
Time can make the mind go fast and then faster.
.
.
Again, the body can go supersonic, the mind operates at maximum efficiency when going slow, focused, empty.
.
.
You are not late, you are exactly where you should be on this planet at this exact minute, relax and notice life not what time it is.

Immediate Is The Simple Truth



.

.

.
.
“Meditation
.
.
is the
.
.
discovery
.
.
that the
.
.
point
.
.
of life
.
.
is always
.
.
arrived at
.
.
in the
.
.
immediate moment.”
.
.
– Alan Watts –

.
.

Simple, the past is over, the future not yet arrived, now is all there is.
