Basic Mindfulness

Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.

The pool and the stream

 

We emerge into life as a pure stream, connected to the Universe and unlimited in our potential.

Imagine a river valley with all the cascades and waterfalls, the excitements and fears of life. The water keeps flowing but eventually the flow gets choked by pollutants and weeds. The pools become stagnant, just like our minds and bodies under the onslaught of modern living, thinking and habits.

We become disconnected from the flow and forget what it is like to be truly alive.

Now and again we regain a connection through music, dance or art and briefly feel what we have lost.
