"Do you know any artists?" he asked me.
I arrived at the bus shelter today and this man who I would place at about 70, full white beard and a completely bald asked me... "do you know any artists?"
We chatted for a bit and it turns out this gentleman has some ideas for commericals and single panel comics but he has no way to get them made. They are crystal clear in his head and unable to see them with his eyes, and share them with others.
My bus shelter friend had ideas for M&Ms dancing the can-can singing "take a chance on me" (something about counter advertising against the the peanut butter scare a few years back) and Santa doing a "Got Milk" ad. His head was full of ideas but he was frustrated that he could not actually get them made for everyone else to enjoy, and in particular his wife of nearly 50 years.
I think I have a sense of what ole Ben was dealing with, you see I occasionally get plagued with run away thoughts... suddenly very large projects or problems are crystal clear, if only I can the design out of my head and create/solve what I am working on... in variably the clarity in my mind resprents many hours, days or even weeks of work...
Tonight on Random Thoughts with Random Excess I talk about being Mind Full, and not Mindful.

In the previous Episode, Episode 5, I talked about the din from thoughts in my head competing for attention. I talked about being Mind Full and today I want to take about being Mindful
I have done years of therapy of all kinds including lots of DBT (Dialectacle Behavioral Therapy), indicated for personality disorders and obsessive behaviors and a few other diagnoses. DBT, if you permit me to oversimplify it a bit, is the merging of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Zen Buddhism... and relies heavily on doing things mindfully.
Every DBT group I have ever been in starts with going over what it means to be mindful and talks about three states of mind, Reasonable, Emotional, and Wise... and as an aside, I think the Resasonable mind should be called the Rational Mind. The rational mind is the seat of contemplation and analysis. Basically the executive function of the frontal cortex
The Emotional mind might also do with a different name more suggestive of its function, something like the Motivated Mind, or Triggered Mind, or even the Action Mind. It is the seat of taking action. It sits down in what some call the lizard brain and involves the functions the hippocampus and amygdala and is very closely linked to our memories, espeically those experiences of deep personal meaning.
