A Tool For Awareness, Contemplation

The Jack Kornfield book on”Meditation For Beginners” is wonderful.

I like being more insightful, philosophical, meditative in a contemplative and awareness orientated way.

I also like how I am inspired to feel, think, act and believe.

I have more purpose.

Jack Kornfield calls it a way of being, I also like how Allan Watts quotes it.

“The art of living…, is neither careless drifting on the one hand nor fearful clinging to the past… on the other. It consists in being completely sensitive to each moment in regarding it as utterly new and unique, in having the mind open and wholly receptive.”

The first time I heard about “The Art of Living” was by the Author, Sharon Lebell or her translation. I have a fondness for translations and how to choose them.

But I am very interested in growth. New limitations are a kind of growth that accompanies many parts of the process.

I like Jack Kornfield ‘s notion of freeing one’s compassion.

I am dabbling in philosophy, writing, journaling to work towards waking up.

Meditation when not excessive will support my progress.

Good luck with yours!
