Quotes

    Катя Трофимоваhas quoted6 years ago
    What does it mean to be a human being? The mindful answer puts the emphasis on the word ‘being’. We are human beings, but we have forgotten how to be. We have become human doings, trapped in a mode of always doing, acting, achieving and keeping busy. When we stop, even for a moment, it can feel frightening and unnatural. Activity and busyness have become our default mode.
    Мария Федюнинаhas quoted3 years ago
    Mindfulness creates space for ‘being’ rather than ‘doing’
    If you allow time for being, it will help your doing to be more productive
    Set aside time for formal meditation practice – even 5 or 10 minutes a day is a good start
    You can also train yourself to create little spaces, pausing often throughout the day. Use a sound, visual cue or activity as a reminder.
    PyotrDhas quoted4 years ago
    meditation practice, if we look and listen clearly to this internal voice, we may find that we are always giving ourselves a hard time. If our mind wanders, we chastise ourselves. If we are sleepy or irritated or angry, we blame ourselves. Or we turn this criticism outward, blaming the environment, the teacher or the practices
