Day 207 – Water

August 4, 2012

 

“True listening, total concentration on the other, is always a manifestation of love. And essential part of true listening is the discipline of bracketing, the temporary giving up or setting aside of one’s own prejudices, frames of reference and desires so as to experience as far as possible the speaker’s world from the inside, stepping inside his or her shoes. This unification of speaker and listener is actually an extension and enlargement of ourself, and new knowledge is always gained from this.” (M. Scott Peck, The Road Less Travelled, 1978)

Day 202 – Summer goodness

July 19, 2012

“Have you ever noticed how much emphasis some people place on even the smallest amount of difficulty in their lives, and how little time they spend reflecting on moments of happiness? Part of the reason for this is the idea that happiness is somehow rightfully ours, and that everything else is therefore wrong or out of place. The idea of taking time to be grateful may sound a little trite to some, but it’s essential if we want to get some more headspace. It’s very difficult to be caught up in lots of distracting thoughts when there is a strong sense of appreciation in your life.” (Andy Puddicombe, “10 Tips for Living More Mindfully” in Tricycle – The Buddhist Review, Vol.XXI, No.4, Summer 2012)
