Mini Mindfulness Break for May 07, 2022

Dear Friends:
Buddhist Politics

A Buddhist would not hesitate to vote for legislation and political candidates devoted to peace, to undoing injustice, reducing duhkha in its myriad manifestations, healing society’s wounds, and preserving individual freedoms and the environment.

– Charles Johnson, “Accepting the Invitation”

Meeting Julie Motz
Julie is a sweet, lovely woman who really cares about people and their healing. I was immediately impressed by her softness and her energy. She seems to operate from a space of loving kindness and compassion. After brief introductions, we got right down to the business of healin …

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, not to anticipate the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.

Mini Mindfulness Break for May 06, 2022

Dear Friends:
When we examine any situation that’s causing suffering we find comparison. Why? Because suffering is possible only through comparing two things and finding one of them unsatisfactory.

A Much Better Day
I’m having a much better day today, thanks to a decent amount of sleep (perhaps!) I worked in the morning before my appointment with Leslie Davenport. In the session, we did a guided imagery experience of what was happening in my life at the present moment. The threat of the path …

Mini Mindfulness Break for May 05, 2022

Dear Friends:
I see life as a cosmic gymnasium where we have come to be broken and healed, broken and healed, for the joy of the process and because we have decided to become strong.

Having a Bad Day
I had a bad day today, which probably resulted from not enough good sleep. I worked for a while in the morning, and then tried to take a nap. Once again, I couldn’t sleep, but the quite, restful mindfulness of breathing kept me from caving totally in. In the afternoon, I went to …

Mini Mindfulness Break for May 03, 2022

Dear Friends:
“Life has a way of supporting us in unforeseen and indescribable ways. Beneath the mystery is the ever present grace which provides new openings and opportunities: the gift of life changing moments that reveal a greater call and purpose. Grace is the bridge connecting our inner and outer worlds. Grace comes in many forms and can be hard to recognize and honor. When we are able to discern the presence of grace, we have greater faith, trust and appreciation for our journey. Perhaps the gift of grace will bring you to what you seek, long for, need and find most fulfilling.”

– Thomas Atum O’Kane

A Day Without Cancer
I decided to forget about cancer today. I played tennis early in the morning and had a normal breakfast afterwards. I didn’t make my smoothie or take any vitamins at all. In the late afternoon, we went to a movie and dinner with the Rossmans. I had a normal day without the preocc …

Mini Mindfulness Break for May 02, 2022

Dear Friends:
The Power of Small Transformations

We are constantly being transformed when we travel on the path. While we may be the same individual on one level, on another level we are different. There is always continuity, and yet at each major turning point on the journey we have become transformed because certain habits have dropped away.

– Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche, “Letting Go of Spiritual Experience”

Mini Mindfulness Break for April 30, 2022

Dear Friends:
Cultivating Equanimity

In working with physical sensations, as we do when we practice mindfulness of the body, the idea is to be fully aware of sensations without being attached to or repelled by them. Notice that when mindful the mind is said to be unlimited, and when it lacks mindfulness it is considered to be limited. Equanimity, the active ingredient in mindfulness, is the tool that is used to unbind the mind and set it free from aversion.

Today was a quite day as far as cancer work is concerned. The only thing to report is that I took about an hour and a half out of my work day to walk by the bay, meditate, and do the immune system building exercises. All of these activities brought a nice, peaceful feeling, witho …
