The heart before thoughts

Phenomena are preceded by the heart ruled by the heart, made of the heart. If you speak or act with a corrupted heart, then suffering follows you- as the wheel of the cart, the track of the ox that pulls it.

Meet life as it is

We practice to meet life exactly as it is and to notice whatever fear, anger, or doubt gets in the way of direct intimate contact with this moment, bringing attention to that as well. Rather than changing something or seeking to get somewhere we imagine we should be, practice is about seeing clearly exactly how things really are and how we relate to them. Practice thus becomes an increasing intimacy with life just as it is, and there is nothing—including the ideas that we should be getting something or somewhere—that is unworthy of the clear, nonjudgmental attention we call mindfulness.

A rather long talk for the FB wall

TwtKr isn't working well today? Feeling disconnected, but when I think of it, who would care that I am disconnected from Twitter world. Actually, none. I post things in a few blogs/FB/2 twitter accounts, but am I well socially-networked? I guess not. I just talk to the people who would like to listen to me while I am talking to myself, just to share what I think that very moment. Nothing else. I have nothing to advertise, I have nothing to go pro nor against. They are mere statements which randomly pop up in my mind. - I do enjoy writing them down, of course. And I even get some sort of excitement or feeling of achievement when I get feedbacks. - It's surely a great pleasure to be heard, to be noticed, to be acknowledged, and maybe even accepted. We are just but human-beings. We all want to be noticed and loved. :)
