On Mindfulness

  • We, modern people are prisoners of intellectual, thinking mind. Whatever we do has to go through a gate guarded by reason. Scientific research has to be added in parenthesis to every piece of information we get and there must be an assessment of everything we do.

    One can’t eat a piece of chocolate or a portion of spinach without thinking about their scientifically analyzed qualities wondering if eating it is a sin or a virtue.

    We want objectivity, objective truth, objective values. But how about the subjective truth; is it a truth at all? Impressions of your senses and feelings; do they have any value, any importance? Do you like this spinach at all? How does this chocolate make you feel? The answer is subjective, the truth about it is subjective, and it’s yours and nobody else’s; it is hidden in your body. It is important to you; it has undeniable value to you. So stop ignoring it, start listening. Spend some time with yourself in a safe, quiet space of meditation. You may be pleasantly surprised by the outcome of it. LEARN MEDITATION.
