Having no destination, I am never lost.
Next Tuesday we will be discussing mindfulness in everyday life. Here are a couple of things that you can use as starting points for your exploration of this subject:
The first is from J. Krishnamurti:
Can I remain with intense sorrow, pain or shock without any single movement of thought, that is, to give complete attention to it? You cannot give complete attention to it if you are trying to escape. That is a waste of energy. Whereas, if you give your total attention, you are then all the energy focused on a point you call suffering. When you do that, you understand the whole significance, depth and beauty of such an extraordinary fact. And suffering ends. With the ending of suffering are passion and love.
… and the second is from The Guardian: Nir Eyal on how to beat tech addiction: ‘We need a new skill set’
We meet at BIBS and the schedule for the evening is:
6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:15 discussion
7:15 – 7:30 sitting
