Mindfulness – More Than Sitting Meditation
Today’s image is courtesy of my wife who was trying out the panorama feature of her Samsung Note 8. As you can see, I was in the studio suite while she was taking this photo which covered about 210 degrees. I have this feature on my tablet as well but haven’t used the camera feature as I prefer to use my DSLR when taking photos. That said, photos are not often taken this winter on my part. It isn’t because there is nothing to take photos of; rather, it has more to do with motivation and focus. My mind is elsewhere and I am learning to respect and just watch where my focus takes me.
Buddhism – reading various books and documents, meditation, sitting for dharma with others, and practicing mindful awareness as I go about daily life is taking up a good portion of my time. Writing as an act of mindfulness where I touch shadows, acknowledge them and practice letting them go – working on a book of course – fills a few more hours of each day. Walking along the beach again invoking mindfulness and seeing what emerges finishes off my daily Buddhist practice.
