Ecco una bella riflessione che dimostra come l'iperstimolazione del cervello attraverso uso eccessivo di computers, tv e simili, crei in realtá un'incapacitá di godere davvero dei ritmi naturali della vita!

Rethinking medicine through meditation ...

My days are short and as I grow weaker, I experience so much gratitude for my meditation. Not only the joy and ease it brought, but the hard parts. For every bored and restless sitting and every fearful fantasy, and every pain and ache I sat through, and every itch I witnessed and did not scratch, was a training for kindness. A training for the muscles, for bearing witness, for the trusting spirit that carries me now, even as I face my death.

It's an interesting approach. Personally I had times in my life when I had to quit photography, because I felt it made me detach from the moment - I was more concentrated on "taking a good photo" than on what I saw. Like in this joke: - Where did you go on holidays? - I don't know, haven't seen my photos yet.
