Mini Mindfulness Break for September 12, 2020

Remember that love, like inner peace comes from within and exists aside from outside circumstances. As we saw before, love is the desire to relieve pain and bring happiness. Lust, on the other hand, is the desire to mate. Love and lust may exist together, but there is also lust without love and love without lust, i.e., without the desire to produce offspring.

Mini Mindfulness Break for May 31, 2020

Walking Meditation

Before and during the time of the Buddha, monks and nuns would walk slowly from their hermitage to the village to beg for food. Their minds would be fully attentive to each step they took. When they reached the village, they would go from door to door with their begging bowls. They would knock on the doors of the villagers and wait patiently for them to respond. When the door was opened, they would bow in deep respect and place their bowl in easy reach of the villages. They would accept with gratitude any food offerings they would receive.

Eustress

Father Eli teaches that strain or eustress is necessary for life. For example, to develop a muscle, we put a load in it with weights or having to pull something. As long as we don’t increase the load by too much in a given interval of time, the muscle with grow to meet the demand of the new weight.

Mini Mindfulness Break for December 19, 2019

Goals

Gratitude, loving kindness and forgiveness are the true foundations for a life of love and happiness. As you will see in a later chapter, these contribute vastly to inner peace, tranquility and equanimity. These qualities purify your heart and mind and promote beneficial hormones in your brain. These are some things to strive for and meditate upon on a daily basis. When gratitude, loving kindness and forgiveness are in place, it is much, much easier to accomplish your goals, whatever they might be.

Unconditional Love

Unconditional love is the kind of love you share with someone when there are no strings attached. Your love for the other person or pet or whoever else never depends on their state of mind, their actions, or their words. You love them unconditionally.

Father Eli

It is important to note that after World War II, Father Eli spent thirteen years in Japan under the guidance of the great Zen teacher, Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki within the 1200 year old Zen temple at Kyoto Kamakura. After four years of study, he was honored as one of the first Americans to be granted the title of Zen Master. What he taught in the retreat was and Americanized version of his Zen training which he combined with his Native American and Scottish traditions.

Mini Mindfulness Break for March 11, 2019

Last year, I finally made the connection between the Zen Teachings of Father Eli and Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. I began reading my notes from 1973 and 1974, all carefully preserved in two three-inch binders. As I read my notes, it began to dawn on me that the two masters were teaching the same basic ideas on life, liberation and happiness.
