I haven't meditated in months. I know, when practicing at least 5 minutes a day, my state of consciousness, thus entire quality of life, improves greatly. Tracking push-ups in the 'get jacked' push-up thread motivated me to do those quite a bit, so I'm going to attempt to treat this thread the same way, and welcome all of you to give it a try. I recommend the Headspace app to ease you in or, if you prefer something on YouTube, this Sam Harris bare bones walk through video works for me. Give it a try and track your progress.

i dare say deep within the catacombs of the 62strat wheelhouse, just down the block and around the corner from a vail-area discount vapor shop, lies a prone, patagonia-clad bodhisattva

My GF, also my teacher for this moment, almost brought me to tears with her "moving into stillness" workshop last week. Oof. Was a powerful meditation.

Also, this thread probably belongs somewhere that isn't GD.

I really hate the word “mindfulness.” There has to be something better we could have come up with.

Yeah, I get that. Being instantly awakened to certain truths about yourself and reality can be very emotional.

I think it belongs here... GD practitioners in particular need to try this.

This sort of meditation is the practice of basically exercising your awareness muscle. There are different kinds of meditation.

I contemplated that the word mindfulness must have come from what would be the opposite of mindless .

...such as mindlessly picking the scabs off her face, ... or mindlessly sawing off his foot and feeding it to the dog...

are we to understand that your awareness muscle will henceforth be exercised?

I know what it means. I just hate the word.

I imagine the awareness muscle to be nothing but a pile of flab that can only be poked at , not flexed.
