Mindful : December 2017
DON’T TAKE YOURSELF TOO SERIOUSLY It’s possible that your years of practice and going on retreats has helped give you some more equanim- ity. Maybe you do have something to offer others. But we’re all still human, no matter how much we’ve med- itated, and one thing humans like to do from time to time is make a big deal out of who they are and what they’ve done. Watch out for that. APPRECIATE NOT KNOWING It’s a cliché that the older you get the less you know, but like all clichés, it’s got some real truth to it. Mind- fulness meditation is driven forward by insight and curiosity. As you become more and more curious, you continually venture into the unknown. When you feel you know everything, you’re never surprised or awestruck. When you let things emerge and don’t pigeonhole them too quickly, the world is a little fresher and you’re more open to whatever comes next. You’re like a glass that’s always a little bit empty. There’s always room for more life to be poured into it. IT’S NOT WHAT YOU SAY At some point, ideas and words matter less. Your way of being and your actions can speak for themselves. You can let meditation techniques fall away and natural mindful- ness emerge. ● “A turn can happen, when you are freed to become more inquisitive about the nature of things. You recognize you can take mindfulness to a deeper level—focusing less on trying to fix yourself, instead being more curious about who this you i s .” CAVERLY MORGAN December 2017 mindful 51
