Mindfulness

5K buzzes
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.

    #8 Funny you should mention a Vietnamese prison. Not that I'm planning to go to one, but I want to go to Vietnam, maybe next year...I'm curious as to why the Vietnamese people don't hate Americans. I get it with the military...the North is like, "Why should we hate you? We won!" and the South is like, "Thanks for trying. We didn't win, but we appreciate your effort." It's the *people* I'm interested in...if anyone should hate Americans it's the Vietnamese people and they don't...I wonder if it's the Buddhist attitude?

    #6 I think we have more tranquility inside us than we give ourselves credit for. By practicing mindfulness and meditation regularly, we can gradually ease the access to it so when we find ourselves in a Vietnamese prison we'll know what to do! :-)

    #3 Well I'm still hoping my cat's-eye sunglasses are cooler than yours, Zacharias :) I wonder sometimes how people do it in truly desperate situations. Thich Nhat Hanh has written about trying to practice mindfulness and calming when he was in a Vietnamese prison. I think I'd be a head case in that situation. But not only did he manage to keep himself calm enough to get through it, he did it without any lasting anger at his jailers. He's a better man than I, Gunga Din!

    #2 Well I tell you, Lisa, mindfulness and meditation has really helped me, and I had money issues for the past year and a half until I got this new job. Even when I knew my old job was on the line (you can always tell...) and was jobhunting, I would have occasional anxiety attacks but they were fewer and farther between and not as bad as they usually were. I would walk and remind myself that most of what we worry about never happens. And that we can never be prepared for *everything*. It takes awhile for your mind to get acclimated but I've begun to notice in the last few months or so (after having been at it for over a year) that my mind is calmer and less prone to craziness. It doesn't stop completely - apparently it never stops for *anyone* including people who are masters at meditation - but it doesn't control you nearly as much.

    However, one thing I've read is that if you have a lot of trauma in your past it's not a good idea to do this without a therapist to help you through...because once you start focusing on yourself, your body, and your presence, the Bad Stuff comes up, and that's the stuff we avoid our entire lives. For a middle-class whiner like me it's not as traumatic as it is for folks who have serious PTSD when past events (whether they recognize it as such or not). When the Really Bad Stuff comes up you need to be prepared with a strong support at your back.

    #1 I hear you, Pamela! I have family on Long Island, NY and when I was still living in Connecticut and visiting them during the summer I used to walk the beach down to a jetty made of large stones and boulders and just sit and contemplate the vastness of it all. I think I got spoiled last summer with all the great weather (sometimes *TOO* hot!) and working from home I could enjoy it more with my computer out on the balcony. This year, the weather was cooler and crappier so I spent less time on the porch. Now I have an office job downtown so next year's rants will concern how the rain waits until the weekend to dampen my parade :)

    Yeah, the weather can be a downer, urging us to flee to days where there was this yellow orb in the sky making things warmer and brighter... But let's face it, most of the days in one's life are either mundane or just plain painful. Mindfulness (or "joy in sorrow" as the Christians refer to it) is all about experiencing the moment nevertheless and perhaps some joy through the whole process. And this definitely leaves plenty of room for other things, including wearing cool cat's-eye sunglasses :-)

    My mind is thinking and over thinking all the time. I need to find a way to slow it down. Like Pam wrote below, the Ocean is really one of the few things that truly calms and settles my mind. My husband offered to get me virtual shades and a tape of the Ocean (he was partly joking). I need the real thing. I enjoyed your buzz, you take a semi-boring topic (it shouldn't be boring) and bring it alive with your visuals and yes, your white privilege, LOL! If I could use mindfulness to stop my incessant worry over money issues... well, I'd be doing great. I need to find a place that brings me peace and quiet and try it but I tend to get lazy in the colder months.

    I loved this piece Nicole. I guess we all have those times in our life where it's all about "me". I find nature to be the ultimate trigger for bringing me back to the present and down to earth. The ocean especially has this effect on me. Watching the power of the waves, the sheer expanse and depths of these dark waters will usually put life back into perspective. When I'm in it's presence; I don't want to talk or think I just want to contemplate the beauty of it. It's why I love the early dawn hours on the beach; it's just me, the waves, and the sun peaking over the horizon. I feel my every breath, the tingle of the salt air on my skin, I feel alive rather than just existing.

    Very powerful @Don ๐Ÿ Kerr. I have heard other family members of cancer survivors and the survivor themselves, describe how cancer affects the person and entire family in many ways long after being told they are cancer free. I can only imagine that it would cause post trauma and certain events can cause people to relive certain moments in time.

    As for the rest of the world and all that has taken place, I swear, I'm at a loss for words. My only way to deal with it is to do what I can to help others and yes, live life to the fullest. I remember before I left for N. Carolina I told a friend I actually felt guilty going after what happened in PR and to other hurricane ridden Islands, then I arrive and hear the news of Vegas. I agree, we can't keep our tail between our legs and 'pray' that things will just improve. It takes a lot of action and we all have our work cut out for us.

    Hugs to you, Kate and your family! Thank you for sharing this honest buzz, well written!

    @Don ๐Ÿ Kerr, read this carefully, but quickly -- for this is not a usual form of expression for me, and it may disappear at any time.

    I am not often inspired and even more rarely do I talk about it. But people like you and Kate, and Char and her husband, and Jim and what must certainly be his "better half" inspire me to my core. For you meet life's travails with courage and tenacity. You do not romanticize misfortune, nor do you use your own challenges as a spotlight to garner attention for yourselves. What you do is offer encouragement and support and the wisdom born of experience to those who are walking the trail beside you. And I have to tell you that you guys are truly my superheroes.

    2: I've been intimately involved with cancer - my sister, who died Jan 2015. She's one of these very rare birds: a shut-in yet the best carer ever! She used to look after me during my many meningitis bouts (because my hubby didn't know 'what to do').
    My hubby is into more advanced Parkinson's; she helped me look after him too. Please accept this is NOT a comparison; the bandied-about phrase for PD is 'you don't die from it, you die WITH it'! It's meant to cheer everyone up and it's the biggest load of crap. I know. I write about it (not here).
    I also know how it will end; my whole life is built around keeping my man safe in an ever degenerative state that will rob him of whatever dignities he has left; his autonomic systems are fully under its curse now.

The US is so divided by so many "Thems', more so than I've witnessed in my lifetime.
    Then I had to wonder; was I living in a bubble, did this always exist and I just didn't see it. Who are all these hate mongers crawling out of the woodwork? They are not part of the America I loved. Is there anywhere left to go where diversity is seen as something of value or are we all truly being forced into cloning? I don't like my country any more.

    Moving to South Africa as a foreigner (a white foreigner) in 1999 there was still an attitude of celebrating our diverse cultural background. We were trying our best to be that rainbow nation. Now things are different. Whilst the people look into each others eyes and make a judgement call on who that person is rather than what they are, things at the top are different. A divide and rule policy and a lot of finger pointing on all sides is taking place. Unfortunately we have to all admit that as humans we still mainly judge each other for what we are rather than who we are.

    #35 if we were to talk in lines of caste ,Dalit and Non dalit.

    I belong to the upper caste despised by dalits, Himalayas are a non caste environment, so is a lot of the non river basin belt.

    Ram Nath kovind is an example of a Dalit who traded civil liberties of his caste for upper caste pupilage.


    Fyi.. see the Child labour Act of india legislated on 28th July 2016. Most lowere caste children suffere from this. Most upper caste children languishing in poverty suffer from this.. Our Nobel laureate has been talking in a muffled voice over this.

    Nobody opposed the passage of this bill, there was no public outcry because the areas where they resented, it wasnt covered by the media.

    Post demonetisation, children have been forced to work for food and shelter and Govt has fudged the numbers of child labour.

    I voted for this Govt. I feel ashamed now.

    Urban educated Indians believe in outsourcing social welfare to really old people. A 90 year old won us our Right to privacy, a 75 yr old our right to information.

    As far as India is concerned, A dalit President is political appeasement to show that all is progressive while dalit and non dalit politicians screw the people.

    It is a sham

    Casteism is publicised based on incidents that happen after a boiling point on certain days. The poor are exploited every single day, amd yes the women and children.

    Any man with money in their pockets has never been exploited. After long drawn enquiries,this is the outcome every single time.

    Cultural anthropology teaches us that every culture in every era has a sense of "Them" and "Us". There are times when differences are appreciated, like when we go to a foreign country for a vacation, see sights unseen, and eat exotic food. But the every day experiences of diversity on our home turf are subject to heightened emotions. Trying to homogenize all concerned may only deepen resentments, rather than create a level playing field. The situation requires mentoring programs and management training that focus on diversity. In turn, those initiatives must be implemented from the top echelons of leadership, whether corporate or, in this case, political. The placement of this unusual individual may be more of a political move than a diversity one, but it may now be replicated. Even if such an appointment happened just once in every town, workplace, and agency in the country, the message would gradually move from expediency to normalization.

    #13 @Don ๐Ÿ Kerr, "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." That's how my parents raised us during the 60's and on. It wasn't until I grew older and began 'hearing' of race issues that I realized there were people who weren't able to accept or tolerate people who were weren't white. It made my stomach turn, literally and I had a hard time comprehending why people were so 'ugly,' literally- I really had a hard time understanding hatred over differing colors. I'm ashamed to admit but where I live now, well it's rare to see many black people here. I grew up in a diverse town and it's real... the town I live in is proof as are many rural areas that they still aren't open to diversity. If my daughter didn't live here, I would move in a heartbeat.

    My hope for the future, our kids and grandchildren. It has to stop somewhere, and begin anew!

    There is diversity as an intelligence and there is diversity as a political and corporate conception. What diversity means to a politician or a typical corporate HR response is no where near diversity being an intelligence. Corporate and political speak is itself a conformity that plays out in similiar ways - so how the heck is that diverse?

    When the policy makers and political hacks all sound the same, then this idea of diversity is a product produced that resembles very little to the intelligence that should be diverse.

    Saying the right things and presenting oneself as diverse is another part of that branding song and dance that gets played, and that dance is definitely a conformist one, and nothing remotely like developing value from difference or recognizing diversity as an individual freedom and choice rather than a political or corporate conscription.

    Even the Chevelle band is not really diverse unless the four million albums it sold can be proven to be cutting cross boundaries. My guess is that there is a certain tribe who buys much of that music and so eventually the Chevelle's have their own marketing niche in which to sell records. The point here is not what the Chevelle's are but what marketing is and what politics is. Diversity should be that which is above those primal forces, but it is not.

    For sure acceptable prejudices as well damning prejudices prevail as do tribal separations Citing diversity initiatives does very little to all that stuff, which simply gets brushed under the carpet. Candor and difficult conversations are not the mainstay of diversity initiatives, but they should be - and as a Few Good Men Says - diversity initiatives often "cannot handle the truth".

    "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.
    You wrote that you are the author of the book "Life Mastery: The Fully Functional Life"! Is it published? I can tell your readers this is a book to rad. I have had access to its draft and the book is for us all.

    "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.

    #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

    #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.

    @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.

    And it was wonderful to hear your accent too. It has been ages since I heard a good Aussie accent. The perfect way to start my morning. Thanks Lance.

    #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.

    of course they are ;-), as they give, and giving is always receiving. You made bees happy with your post, and it will certainly reflect to you in bitcoins for happiness.

    #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.

    Questioning the Questioner: Sara Jocobovici Takes Her Turn
    Questioning the Questioner: Sara Jocobovici Takes Her TurnThe lovely Sara Jacobovici has taken to interviewing fellow bees and posting her Q & A series so that we may all know each other better. After Sara interviewed me, it occurred to me that Sara should also be interviewed. I have taken the...

    What a wonderful interview @Renรฉe ๐Ÿ Cormier. Your wise selection of questions helped us get to know more about our "high on life" bee, @Sara Jacobovici. It is a privilege to know, Sara, and enjoy her wonderful discussions.

    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

    Thanks Renee for the awesome interview.

    I kept on hold to watch this wonderful video and believe me I became a bigger fan of yours, @Sara Jacobovici The pain of losing the closest family member in fact my own progenitor was devastating. 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.

    What an outstanding interview @Renรฉe ๐Ÿ Cormier! I love that you flipped the equation and put @Sara Jacobovici in the spotlight. And Sara, its so great to learn just a bit more about you. 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. . .

    Thank you so much, @Renรฉe ๐Ÿ Cormier for this interview. It was absolutely necessary to know the person who took pain to introduce many of our bees to us. The bees to whom I know but got to know them more closely just because of this interview. You are a jewel in this crown of beBee, @Sara Jacobovici

    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
