The Miracle of Mindfulness, zen buddhist meditation

The Miracle of Mindfulness

This time I have read a pretty old book, it is from the 1970:s, the time of the Vietnam war. Most of it was written by a buddhist monk from Vietnam, and it contains a lot of instructions on how to meditate and how to stay in the moment with total awareness.

Handling your feelings

The Miracle of Mindfulness, zen buddhist meditationAlways welcome your feelings, good or bad, and treat them as equal because they are both you. The tangerine you eat is also you. The seeds you plant in the ground is you.If you are alive or not depends on if you are consciously present. Stay conscious of yourself, not others, thus you can do what you need to do and not get annoyed and blame others for your failures.

What is most important?

When you are living in the moment, the most important time is now, the most important person is the one you are with and the most important thing to do is to make the person you are with happy. So what would happen if all meetings started on that note?

Is this a good book?

These guidelines are  just some of what this book contains. Sure it’s sometimes very hard to grasp and sometimes it is a bit out there, but it also has so much wisdom and so much love in it that I really recommend reading it and keeping it around when you need some ideas for your meditations.
