One Arrow, One Life: Intention and Goals

“An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.” Unknown   An aspect of mindfulness is to set your intention. When you’re a fast-acting multitasker, your mind can become invaded by the thoughts and responsibilities you’re trying to keep track of. While these goals are important to keep organized, you can deal with the onslaught of to-dos by zoning in on a point of focus. Do this by setting your intention each morning and staying mindful of what matters most that day. For more: see setting your intention.

It is anger, envy, jealousy, doubt, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence,empathy, generosity, forgiveness, truth, compassion and faith.” The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?” The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”   Thoughts can become things.

Master Your Words, Master Your Thoughts: Mindfulness

Master Your Words, Master Your Thoughts: Mindfulness

“Master your words. Master your thoughts. Never allow your body to do harm. Follow these three roads with purity and you will find yourself upon the one way, the way of wisdom.” Buddha   Mindfulness, which evolved from Buddhist tradition, means awareness, attention, and remembering. It’s about both being reflective (understanding behaviors in terms of thoughts, feelings, and desires) and fully experiencing the fluctuation of mental states with acceptance and without judgement. While this was once a daily practice common in the world, it’s given way to busy schedules, long workdays, and social obligations. The good news: Being present is natural to humans. We’ve simply gotten away from practicing it. By practicing the qualities of mindfulness, you can enjoy the benefits, including improved stress management skills, increased focus, decreased emotional exhaustion, and optimized health (lower blood pressure, reduced chronic pain, etc.).
