Mindfulness is the practice of bringing one's attention to the internal and external experiences occurring in the present moment,[1] which can be developed through the practice of meditation.[1] The term "mindfulness" is a translation of the Pali-term sati,[2] which is a significant element of some Buddhist traditions.

    Great piece, @Pascal Derrien. But you are fighting the Human Condition. I sat with someone yesterday--trying to explain the unimaginable--that Humans are a predatory species and prey on their own kind. Perhaps if we get down to those basics, we will overcome nature-ingrained instincts.

    Part 2: @Pascal Derrien @Jim Murray It was my great fortune to spend a considerable amount of time over several years in your adopted country - both the Republic and the north. I recall on my first visit to Dublin just about 15 years ago, noting the virtual absence of people of colour. I remarked to my companion that we had seen exactly one black person and that just happened to be the disgraced Canadian Olympic sprinter Ben Johnson. I also recall having a remarkable conversation with an old chap at a pub in County May who asked if we Canadians ate and gathered with 'them black fellas'. Unfortunately, to echo Jim, this lack of tolerance is a learned behaviour. My kids have friends who are Asian, Chinese, African, Lebanese, Saudi, and Australian(!). They have friends with two daddies and others with two mommies. They have no comprehension of why that is somehow anything but normal. My wife and I strive to keep that attitude alive.

    Part 1: @Pascal Derrien With the caveat that people who live in glass houses should undress in the dark, I'll weigh in on this as a corollary to @Jim Murray's astute comments. Canada has, with certain caveats, especially with regard to our treatment of indigenous peoples, a deserved reputation for tolerance and diversity. However, it was only about 10 years ago that controversy in our country revolved around a passionate debate about whether Sikh members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police should be allowed to wear turbans. Now, a turban-wearing Sikh is running for nomination as the leader of one of the federal political parties. It was only a couple of years ago that a debate raged in Quebec about the right for women to wear the hijab and appear in court with their faces covered. That one has yet to come to a total resolution. Our federal Conservative party has elected a leader who has some worrying tones that replicate the mad ravings of the alt-right movement. We are not immune to the same vicissitudes that surround racial profiling by our police with carding still an unresolved issue in many of our major metropolitan centers.

    It's interesting to read this about your adopted country, Pascal. In Canada, we have a PM who believes that diversity is one of our strengths, as do I. And we probably have one of the world's better batting averages in that regard. But every society and country has its warts. And though it's not anywhere near as institutionalized as it is in the US, racism and tribalism does exist here to a limited extent. For the life of me I cannot figure out where this comes from. We certainly aren't born that way so it has to be something that is taught. Well I never took the courses or got the memos, and grew up (and older) believing that the human race was the only race, and that all you had to do was look around and see that while people may look a little different or have different skin pigmentation, there are achievers and slackers all over the place. To me it's an absurdity, and something I have never been able to understand. But then again. I'm a white guy living in a predominantly white country that goes out of it's way not to be like the US. So what do I know? Good post.

    Interesting take on diversity, Pascal, which stimulates my fog of a memory and brings me back to my uni days, when I read the evolutionary works of Desmond Morris. The concept, if my memory serves me, is that we have not advanced, socially, beyond our primate forefathers in the cave; and therefore we are still subliminally bound to seek out groups of 6 to 8 based on affinity (whether real of perceived) rather than diversity, as a consequence of our bonding capabilities being ineffective beyond these cave-sized groups. While, theoretically, we may state that we abhor lack of diversity, lest we are labelled as politically incorrect, we need to be aware that we survived in our primate past based on affinity and a healthy cautious suspicion of diversity. By all means let's embrace diversity, and encourage its development, but let's be aware that, every now and then, our 'Naked Ape' past surfaces to mess with our best endeavours.

    Thank you @Pascal Derrien for sharing your excellent post so sensitive. Maybe, the Cultural Evolution Society places diversity issues in the foreground of its structure and by-laws,steered by the science and public policy recommendations should be stronger. If none is the same, we have to think, all of us are living in a very scaled world, excepted in our mind to react about it in its context.

    Perhaps the problem is not diversity, but lack of tolerance. In every society there is some degree of diversity and it's usually fine. When people in that society cannot handle the diversity because of whatever reason, then it becomes a problem. I believe that many of the world's issues can be resolved if we learn to get along with each other better...

    First we gamed our own identity. Now we game diversity.

    Ultimately it is not what works best but what is mutually acceptable.

    The unjustified choice is accepted by all in the name of fairness and justice.

    Is diversity the critical requirement or a safeguard? The priorities must be set right.

    "Another misconception about the brain is that you only use pieces and parts of it at any given time and that it's silent when you'r doing nothing". Sometimes I wonder my friend @Edward Lewellen how wa lead ourselves astray with misconceptions sometimes. Our brains receive info from our senses. Our senses are in perpetual motion and so keeping our minds busy. It is equally interesting that our brains keep changing as well (neuroplasticity).
    This is a wonderful buzz and I am sure as nore discoveries are made, new facts shall appear.

    "It takes practice to empower a person to make significant change in the way their mind and brain work."
    For that it an absolute truth @Edward Lewellen ...It is not a 'one and done' kind of thing like learning to ride a bike ...it is an ongoing process of daily practice...like fine tuning an instrument...and that instrument is your own consciousness...the more you practice, the clearer your frequency becomes...you are then open to all possibilities;-) In my energetic circles we call that 'channeling.'

    Great Buzz. I love your methods of Meditation, Mindfulness, and Visualization. Yet for me to use these, I either need to read something or listen to something new or inspirational, write in my journal to get all the thoughts out of my head, or relax outside somewhere I call just hear the sound of nature. These three environments help me use the methods you describe above. Afterwards, I usually have more energy than drinking 2 or 3 energy drinks. It may not be physical. Yet, it is a emotional and spiritual boost that can get me over any temporary physical hump I may have that day. The human brain is amazing.

    Don, you reminded me of this wonderful poem by Lord Byron:

    She Walks in Beauty

    She walks in beauty, like the night
    Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
    And all that's best of dark and bright
    Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
    Thus mellow'd to that tender light
    Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

    One shade the more, one ray the less,
    Had half impaired the nameless grace
    Which waves in every raven tress,
    Or softly lightens o'er her face;
    Where thoughts serenely sweet express
    How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

    And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
    So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
    The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
    But tell of days in goodness spent,
    A mind at peace with all below,
    A heart whose love is innocent!

    As always, Don, you plumb the depths of being a loving human being. Thank you. I challenge your idea of win/lose, however. Death, however grotesque and premature, is just death. Grace in all your poignant definitions lies in each moment... in each day. It is in that fullness and courage of being which is the win. You and Kate are proof of that. And your children, too. Catherine still is proof of that. She didn't lose... she won even as you morn... your loss, not hers. I am sad for your loss and I rejoice in your memories of her grace.

    23/08/2017 #26 Phil Friedman
    #25 Oh Ms. @Charlene Norman, I understand, believe me I do.

    What concerns me about the use of terms that express unrestrained optimism is that it can lead to genuinely damaging some people. Consider the expression, "You can do anything you set your mind to do."

    The fact is you can't. I have a younger cousin who once set her mind on flying. Put on a superman cape and jumped off the top of a staircase into mid air. Luckily she was very young at the time, the stairs and the floor were heavily padded and carpeted, and she suffered only minor injuries. But the incident illustrates the importance of understanding reality and not being either overly fearful and time OR being overly and unrealistically optimistic.

    Again, this is as important in business as it is in life in general: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/avoid-the-pitfall-of-excessive-positivity
    Charlene Norman
    23/08/2017 #25 Charlene Norman
    #24 Oh Mr. @Phil Friedman.

    How I miss the days of being black and white. While I agree with the concept of developing the ability to assess what one needs to be afraid of and what one does not need to be afraid of, I have found many folks don't share that opinion. And I have given up (in most cases) trying to change minds because frankly, it is just a waste of my energy. Instead, I start from where they begin and try to nudge them forward.

    No, I am not always successful with this approach but surprisingly, even to me, it is more effective than trying to convince them of the errors in their thinking patterns. Besides, I find when it comes to matters of the brain, I am generally wrong in the words I choose. Not in the ideas or thoughts. Just the words I choose. And that is a very humbling lesson.
    Phil Friedman
    22/08/2017 #24 Phil Friedman
    @Charlene Norman, not to put too fine a point on it, I believe that Lance is off-base when he says, "F.E.A.R. is an illusion. Something we fabricate in our own minds and pretend is real."

    Fear is often real, even when the "object" of that fear is very often not. But to deny reality to peoples' emotions is akin to taking drugs. What is necessary is to develop the ability the assess what one needs to be afraid of and what one doesn't. And that is just as true in business as it is in life in general. Cheers!

    Don ๐Ÿ Kerr
    22/08/2017 #18 Don ๐Ÿ Kerr
    @Charlene Norman There's a couple of really valuable lessons that we learn in mindfulness meditation that are relevant here. The first is this: thoughts are not facts. Too often we allow ourselves to ruminate on thoughts that have very little to do with the reality of our situation. We allow past failures to fester or over-inflate past achievements and wonder why we're not achieving the same results today. Or we spend useless moments allowing thoughts to cloud our vision of the future or indulge in ridiculous, unattainable fantasies that our brains try to trick us into believing. Focusing on the present moment allows us to clear our minds and address things which we really can manage. The second is this: Jon Kabat-Zinn wrote "You can't tame the waves but you can learn to surf." His meaning here is that avoiding (because we're fearful?) adversity in our lives we get swept away. Turning toward adversity, recognizing our fears as factual is the only way to effectively put them in hand, examine them and address them with relevant action. We also refer to this as employing C.O.A.L. Confront fear with Curiosity. Be Open to what the reality is. Accept that they are present. Come to Love what they represent. Will share. Well done.

    #12 WOW! @Lance ๐Ÿ Scoular How brave to do a Live feed on such a raw experience. I was riding shotgun with you on the entire emotional roller coaster. Thank you. I have a few sayings ... 'everything is temporary -- the good, the bad and the ugly' "it is never as bad as it seems' 'we always have options' 'we never know how inspiring we are to others'. I think each and every one of those sayings applies to your very important lessons that you are trying to teach here. (I can't speak about the teachings of the live buzz feed. LOL) And it is soo true, the biggest fear we have is when we are gobsmacked with real life and death stuff or something important we can't solve with our loved ones. And then our whole perspective changes. And changes dramatically.

    My moment of reckoning came in Feb 2015 when I faced near death and two strokes felled me. I was scared silly I would never be the main breadwinner again, would never be the smart and sassy person my husband married, and would instead just be a vegetative lump. The power of the brain is truly remarkable. We all have the power to outstanding. A bit of hard freaking work, a positive can do attitude and the sky is the limit for pretty much anything. Today I say everyone needs a good jolt of fear to face down. At least once. People think I am crazy. Nope. Not at all.

    Mindfulness Changes Your Brain... Literally!
    Mindfulness Changes Your Brain... Literally!Mindfulness is a pretty big buzz word these days. And before you dismiss it as new-age hype, there is scientific research and neural imaging studies to back it up. Mindfulness doesnโ€™t just change your mindset; it literally alters your brain. ...

    The truth of the pudding,
    is in discovering its taste.
    Plus the feeling called 'yum'
    can't be captured
    in the charts, reports & statistics
    put together in the world.
    For that can be read
    only on the face of the one
    who just had a bite into the 'yum'.
    Same is this stuff,
    which you call Mindfulness.
    Gud day & Gud wishes. :)

    #2 It's a start, but much more data required. Also, brain development (integration) is an active process (neuroplasticity). Merely practicing 'mindfulness' won't cut it. It requires integrating the mind state into all elements of daily life - an active process.

    #11 Hi @Lisa Vanderburg, great to hear from you loved your thoughts, I did write an earlier blog called 'Are good story tellers happier in life and business' I felt the subject was worthy of a further explanation and funny enough I have an interesting theme for a new blog that is due for release on October 16th, now that would be great to have your prospective and thoughts. What a storyteller says must be consistent in their heart and mind and truth to the audience, mindfulness is really important in how one delivers the story, a final thought: stories do grab us. They take us in, transport us, and allow us to live vicariously and visually through anotherโ€™s experience. As Iโ€™ve said often in my work around presence, shared stories accelerate interpersonal connection. Learning to tell stories to capture, direct and sustain the attention of others is a key leadership skill. Storytelling also greatly helps anyone speaking or presenting in front of an audience.

    #10 Hi Jerry, @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc. was correcting me over the day and she was so right, I needed more coffee on Wednesday, however, Tuesday could also be the new Wednesday :-) what exactly is time? According to Wikipedia, Time is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events that occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future. Time is a component quantity of various measurements used to sequence events, to compare the duration of events or the intervals between them, and to quantify rates of change of quantities in material reality or in the conscious experience. Time is often referred to as the fourth dimension, along with the three spatial dimensions. So whether you are in the upper left hand side of the US, Midwest, New York, Europe or London, time to me is a metaphor for moments, experiences and of coarse mindfulness :-)

    This is my first experience of your story-telling @Geoff Hudson-Searle, and it is GOOD! Although I have never been part of the corporate world, I have given presented talks to some corporations. I observe the essence of what you know: Story-telling is wholesome and energizing; even if it's not particularly an 'up' subject, it can be enlivening, encouraging and should always be entertaining!
    I am personally a little wary of Mindfulness (happy to expand on that if you want), but I have no doubt to its power in those 'willing to receive'! I have seen thousands-strong corporations embrace this philosophy and become all the stronger and better bonded for it. So Mindefulness may well be the epiphany we collectively need, and that boils down to a good story!

    I'm reading this on Thursday here in the v upper left corner of the USA. The day/date doesn't change a well wrought excursion into what makes writers a little closer to the earth. I believe that as we live through, structure and organize experiences we may be slightly better attuned to all of our senses and the emotions they evoke with a dollop of synesthesia thrown in. If you want to call that mindfulness, okay.

    #1 Thank you Numo, great comments and no surprise I am totally in agreement to your thoughtfulness on mindfulness, there is a quote by Thich Nhat Hanh that really resonates with me too โ€œPeople usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a childโ€”our own two eyes. All is a miracle.โ€

    Though the approach is most interesting, I like to leave the commerce out of it. Since the focus of Mindfulness as we experience, is free of all. Free of judging, free of feeling 'pressed' to judge, or to opinion or stand because of what commerce is want us to. Mindfulness is the joy and pleasure of nothing and all for any person in difference globally. Mindfulness is like floating on your back in the Ligurian sea looking sole to the blue sky and think nothing. Mindfulness is your focus, strive, journey to fullness, regardless what that fullness for anyone is. Just out 3cts in this great publish.

    This is such a wonderful interview and a bonus to what we already know and learn from Sara. Her mind and thoughts are that a beautiful bee that buzzes around leaving pollen and honey on the way. Pollen helps generates more honey and the honey enriches our minds in creative ways. We have both shared our love for Victor Frankl and I knew the answer to that question.
    Your journey on self discovery is inspiring and I thank you for sharing it with us. Keep inspiring the world and stay awesome always #beBeelove

I wanted to forget myself so that I could forget her but my entire family would have been in ruins with this drastic step of mine. You have always been a great support whenever I needed as you have asked about her well being. God bless you always.

We have something in common, and its a bit funny. Just the other day a friend on LI posted about "what-if" careers. My response was twofold. First, I've always wanted to build canoes (Which I know my friend @Don ๐Ÿ Kerr, would understand) and I WILL do that ("I'm working on my first pair of snowshoes to learn how to form wood strips), the second (and funny thing), was that if I had it to do over again I might have pursued the Ethnomusicologist path as well. I think that would be a seriously COOL job! Back in the day when I was just deciding on my degree path, I didn't even know such a career existed. It wasn't until I was about 30 that I ran into a museum curator who was. . .

    Last night was my son Gabriel's last game of the 2017 season. The Giants won only two games all year but they finished out the season with a hammering of the #1-ranked Expos with a score of 21-7. It was delightful to see the unbridled joy the kids displayed but equally impressive (if not more) was the determination, dedication and stalwart belief these 9 - 11 year old boys and girls maintained throughout the entire experience. There's a good lesson for grown ups here - it's about the playing and participating fully and not about the winning. I'm gonna miss these evenings at the ballpark being inspired by these kids and their amazing, dedicated coaches. Don ๐Ÿ Kerr
