Mindful : June 2013
I look for someone’s ability to fall on their butt and laugh about it. I look for someone’s ability to fall on his butt and say, “Oops.” And laugh. The beginner ’s mind is undefended, without the barriers of self-regard, without con- cern for the judgments of others. The most profound joy—and the deep- est laughter—come from a wholly exam- ined relationship to the world. Being able to goof off is not just a matter of humor or laughing or being silly. Goofing off is the ability to stop being purposeful, to drop the attachment to goals. The trick is not trying to do nothing; the trick is to stop trying to do anything. This is true mindfulness: just give everything else up, cut all other ties, do nothing but experience and enjoy the moment. Do nothing else. Writing this essay is not goofing off. Later, sitting on the deck in the spring- time sun—that’s goofing off. Mindful, wholehearted, joyful—goofing off. ● June 2013 mindful 63
