ozziegontang's curator insight, February 24, 2013 3:12 PM

Science is a metaphor. A way of interpreting what we humans sense and experience so that we can explain our interpretations. From the research comes our explanations of what is seen through the perceptions of the researcher. 


As Lee Thayer reminds us: We don't learn from our experience; we learn from our interpretation of our experience.  As homo sapiens sapiens, I only know what I know. And what I don't know I can theorize or create metaphors that help me explain to others what I am attempting to communicate.


It all comes back to the way I think influences who I am and who I am influences what I do.  Beyond the Do Be Do Be Do of Life is the simplicity of Mindfulness: A Practice.


It is nice to go back to breath. Breathing in I breathe in. Breathing out I breathe out.


Present, awake, aware and living life intentionally.
