This place where you are right now
God circled on a map for you.
Wherever your eyes and arms and heart can move
Against the earth and the sky,
The Beloved has bowed there -
Our Beloved has bowed there knowing
You were coming.
I could tell you a priceless secret about
Your real worth, dear pilgrim,
But any unkindness to yourself,
Any confusion about others,
Will keep one
From accepting the grace, the love,
The sublime freedom
Divine knowledge always offers to you.
Never mind, Hafiz, about
The great requirements this path demands
Of the wayfarers,
For your soul is too full of wine tonight
To withhold the wondrous Truth from this world.
But because I am so clever and generous,
I have already clearly woven a resplendent lock
Of his tresses
As a remarkable truth and gift
In this poem for you.
Translation by Daniel Ladinsky, The Subject Tonight Is Love
If nothing changes...nothing changes. When we lack awareness insights into how our hardwired behaviours i.e being judgemental and reactive continues to block intimacy there is felt-sense of "sameness" about every interaction. Life is defined by fear. A self fulfilling prophecy manifesting victimisation.
Mindfulness's two-prong practice: social and emotional intelligence approach optimises parenting, partnering and companionship.
Over time when practised on a daily basis it is possbile to shift from being a victim into a heroic individual, successful in love and life.
Driven by stimuli (addiction to intensity) results in being easily triggered into feeling frustrated angered and hurt, intellectually, spiritually and emotionally avoidant. Such is the potency of unconscious thinking/feeling behaviours. The brains hardwiring does the firing and is hugely responsive to new brain body/thinking/feeling behaviours.
Addiction manifests obsessive compulsivity, as felt sense of being disconnected. When we approach life from a mature mindfulness stance we personify self acceptance, non-reactivity, non-judgementalism, validation, empathy and compassion.
No longer needing to be reactive, entitled, enraged and oppositional. When we feel good- enough we are emotionally balanced. We navigate life with a heightened sense of equipoise, authenticity and awareness.
Mindfulness combination of social and emotional intelligence creates a powerbase of potent people (social) skils. Healing primal intrinsic states of disconnection.
We are hardwired to conect. Mindfulness sweetens all our connections with loving kindndess, empathy and compassion.
You can heal your life. If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete -
- The Buddha

His expertisse on the matter comes both from science - he's been a counselor and educator - and from his six years of practice as a Buddhist monk in the Tibetan tradition.
Back to lay life, John continues to pursue his mission to provide people with tools to cultivate genuine happiness.
According to John, living mindfully is much more than being present in the moment. “Mindfulness includes and facilitates the cultivation of concentration, wisdom and the ability to make healthy choices that foster genuine happiness and a meaningful life.”

Mindfulness is a term that you frequently hear. Focus, being in the moment, Zen, being in the flow--all of these refer to the concept of mindfulness. Eckhard Tolle's groundbreaking book, "The Power of Now", was centered around getting into that state. But how do you do it? How do you get there? It's not as easy as it sounds! The good news is that you don't have to go to an ashram in Nepal to study the techniques from monks. We'll talk about them tonight!
