Have you hugged your mind today?

Tsoknyi Rinpoche

I just posted a guest post with the title “Does your mind need a hug?” on the What Meditation Really Is blog. It is about finding and hugging your mind!

When was the last time you gave your mind a good hug? My mind loves being hugged and I love hugging my mind! Unfortunately I often forget to do it. Too many distractions! The good news is that it is actually very easy and doesn’t take a lot of time. Here is how one of my teachers Tsoknyi Rinpoche explains how to find and hug your mind. Warning: you might fall in love with your mind and get addicted to hugging it! … but I think, if that were to happen, that would not be such a bad thing!

    quote Bernie: ” I heard this statement as meaning “simply being aware of whatever you are aware of”. But “What it really meant is that mindfulness is about being aware of being aware.”

    Thank you for this distinction. As you know I have been having a bit of difficulty with the concept of mindfulness too. However more and more I am experiencing it rather than just thinking about it. I find that when I am aware of being aware that there is a clarity and sharpness, a one-pointed focus, to my thinking, as if, at least for the duration of the mindfulness practice, my mind is like an arrow slicing through the air. And yes, it sure does feel like a hugging my mind!

    I am glad mindfulness is bringing you clarity and sharpness and you are enjoying hugging your mind? :-)
