Mini Mindfulness Break for January 17, 2019

Some people are like magnetite: they don’t look unusual – don’t act unusual – until they are struck by lightning. (I mean metaphorically.) Like sickness, divorce, unemployment, your dog dies, you get abused. Frankly, there are a million ways to “get struck by lightning” and they all suck, except that some of them, in some people, turn on a kind of inner compass – nothing special to look at – but having a tendency to swing towards True North. In every ancient culture there were certain people to whom this was more likely to happen and they were called by different names in different cultures – medicine woman, shaman, mystic. I call then Wayfinders. Are you on this Team of Wayfinders? (I bet you are!)

– Martha Beck, About the Team video

May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!

All my best,
