Just Observing: No With Questioning - No Without Questioning - Mindfulness

Just Observing: No With Questioning - No Without Questioning - Mindfulness | Mindful | Scoop.it
'An unfortunate aspect of our mental life is how unscientific it is.


"The amateur scientist believes that he knows what he is looking for and with evidence he can confirm his hunch. The sagacious scientist, in contrast, frequently abandons his inklings and partialities, knowing that after a certain point observation and luck will be his closest allies.  "

craig daniels's insight:

Lots of different words collide in our minds to crate stories and concept that fit with how we think the world is or should be. Here's a question, what if we put down our thought paint brush and looked at what is starkly appearing in front of us?


No questions to add heft to our beliefs.Viewing what is happening right here, right now. No with questions & no without questions. Hands free so to speak, holding on to nothing. It may sound all a bit much but with a little practice mindfulness can reveal reality. What else but this moment can we dwell in?


In this post Sam McNermey lays out a clear understanding of why mindfulness is so inviting.

A Year of Mindfulness: Saying Yes « Musings from the Moonroom

As we continue our journey in mindfulness, we were asked last week to let our hands rest. This practice resounded with several of you, especially those of you who use your hands every day as part of your job.


Often life can seem like a series of hooks, everywhere you turn something is tugging you in one direction or another. People want you to believe them, trust them and follow their lead.


I think we want to say no just to help us feel grounded and in control. A mindfulness practice helps us to be aware of our unconsciousness desire to be grounded and by being aware we can make a decision based on reality, not on fear or insecurity.
