Morning Mindfulness - Two Positive Minutes to Start Your Day

This podcast is about mindfulness. No, no, no, not about just sitting and doing nothing and emptying your mind. That is not mindfulness, that would be mindlessness. But we are talking about mindfulness. It is about being in the moment. It is about paying attention. It is about nonjudgmental attitude. It is about awareness. It is about making wiser decisions.

Courage is not a lifestyle. It is just a moment. Once you’re in - you’re in. But it takes courage to make the very first move and overcome anxiety.

Once the vessel is ready, the spirit will enter it on it’s own. We don’t have to worry about that. Then the form becomes redundant...

You see, we like being busy. I didn't say working, I said being busy. This is our lifestyle. We are getting trillions of bits of information into our brain every day. We’re constantly doing something. Our day is full, and our time is still 24 hours per day...

“Don’t be afraid of friends for all they can do is betray you. Don’t be afraid of your enemies, for all they can do is kill you. Be afraid of indifferent because with their silent agreement all betrayal and killing happens.”

Today is the Memorial Day. People gave THEIR lives so you and I can enjoy ours. It’s up to us to make sure they did not die for nothing. Think about that.

When we achieve this top level dream, we accomplish it, in our mind we achieved the highest level. We lose that momentum that took us to the top. And if we stay at that level long enough, we may even become rigid. In our mind we are on the top. Unfortunately, there’s no status quo in life. We either going up or down.

Sometimes, the whole world may be saying whatever we do cannot be done, because nobody’s done it. Just don’t let them get in the way of those who are doing whatever the World is saying cannot be done.

If you come up with an idea, you will face opposition. Especially if it’s contradicting the main stream school of thought. Every brilliant idea will go through 3 stages of acceptance...

People make quick decisions, often without considering any circumstances and without waiting for or searching for any additional details. This is what I call "Yo-Yo Mind.”

May 23, 2016

We make life changing decisions, and we judge others based on our assumptions. That may be dangerous, my friend. And I believe, it has little to do with mindfulness.

I learned, no matter what I do, no matter how great my idea is, or how bad my ideas is, for that matter, out of every 10 people, on the average of course, 1 or 2 will support me. On the oner hand, 1 or 2 will deny and even criticize me. Whoever's in between will be silent observers.

Positive mental attitude is based on reality. Telling yourself “I got $10 for the remaining 2 weeks of the month, I’ll be all right” and then sitting and watching TV, is not a positive attitude. I call it “blissful stupidity”.  But you can tell “I got $10, but here’s what I can do to make more”, and then just go and do it. That is a positive attitude. Positive mental attitude is defined by what we do, not just by what we say.

Physical and psychological battles are identical. People respond to emotional push the same way as physical. And that results into what we see so often in the society. Conflicts. Stress. Psychological disorders. Depression.

We never know how small act of kindness can change somebody’s life. We never know what impact will it make on the World. There’s often such a thin thread leading to a global changing event. My friend, if you ever see yourself small and insignificant, try sleeping with a mosquito.
May 16, 2016
Too many people will tell you, my friend, what you can and cannot do, how you should live your life. Who are “They”? How credible this “Committee of They” is? Do They have in life what you’d like to have? Do They live their lives the way you’d like to live? 
Did they do what you are trying to do?

Internet is the largest public restroom in the World. All junk goes there, and everybody has to use it. How much credibility do you give to the writing on the wall in the public restroom?

As humans, have a tendency to complain. We constantly don’t like something. But we often forget that no matter where in life we are, there will always be somebody who’s life is better than ours, and somebody who’s life is much worse.

Long time ago I read an ancient fable about a Fox, supposedly written by Aesop. In that fable, a hungry Fox saw a nice ripe grapes hanging down from the vine. The Fox really wanted the grapes, however it was hanging too high. No matter how hard the Fox tried to jump, he could not reach it...

I think we are responsible for our own alienation. What will people think about me? They won’t care, because they’re too busy thinking, what will you and I think about them.

I believe we were created in God's image. You can call it Divine Nature, or whatever you believe. But I believe you and I have some great powers inside of us, more than we can even comprehend. Would you like to receive it? First let me ask you, my friend, are you ready to receive?

When I was growing up, we had popular kids and not so popular ones, which I was a part of as well. The problem was, not so popular kids sometimes were trying to do things to mimic “popular” ones. They might smoke, drink alcohol, and do other things that  could get them in trouble...

One day a young boy came to his father and asked, “Dad, what is the next thing a man needs to learn after he learns to speak?” 
“To keep his mouth shut,” dad answered. 
I read this story several decades ago, and over the years I’ve heard a number of similar statements, just in different words...

To me, success is defined by our ability to live in a place we like with people we love. To me, it is about being able to do what we enjoy. To me, it is about seeing other people benefit from what we are doing. To me, it is about having inner peace and living in harmony with the surrounding world... What does success mean to you?

When I started practicing mindfulness techniques over 3 decadesago, my goals were very practical. There was nothing divine orspiritual about my practice. I used it for my mind just like we usephysical training for the body. I am not saying it’s write orwrong, but it was my way. My friend called me a fakir, not a yogi.Later though it brought me to Taoist philosophy. But I still likepractical application of these techniques.

In today’s society, we like making profound statements. We like fantasizing, day dreaming. Let’s do that, let’s change the world. But when the reality of life hits, what happens?
