Mindful or Full Mind — by Dr. Steven   Januar 24, 2018 

Mindful.

Full mind.

Neither.

Both.

I'm always jumping back and forth.

One minute I'm mindful.

The next I'm a mind full of stuff.

Silly stuff.

Stuff I like.

Stuff I don't.

Judging here and there.

Likes.

Then I recognize my mind full of stuff.

And try to move back to mindful.

How?

Look at that tree.

Listen to that waterfall.

Feel my lungs filling with cool air.

Smell the cedar.

Before mindful -- full mind.

During mindful -- noticing my full mind and letting it be.

Letting it be exactly how it is and exactly how it isn't.

After mindful -- full mind.

Keep noticing.

WISE WORDS FOR OUR TIMES:
Human unity is a power that can overcome all differences of race, nationality, ideology or culture. Military leaders have aroused partial unity by means of fear, pride, anger, hate and lies. But unity can also be aroused, more fruitfully and enduringly, by love and the desire for justice.
-- Richard Gregg

The musk is within the deer

By Dariya Sahib of Bihar
(1634 - 1780)
English version by K. N. Upadhyaya

The musk is within the deer,
But he searches for it outside in the grass
instead of searching within himself.
He runs back and forth,
Wondering where the fragrance comes from.
The fragrance is nearby,
But he knows it not.

Caught by delusion, he roams about.
So do all people wander in pilgrimages
and outer observances.
If you wish to obtain your own true Home,
Then find it by looking within yourself
and dwell therein.

The true Lord resides within this body,
Recognize Him through the manifestation of true love.
By churning this body,
And by entering within yourself,
See the manifestation of true wisdom.

Thanks for the poem.

Londons Bürgermeister fordert Absage von Trump-Besuch
Khan ist kein Trump-Freund.
US-Präsident Trump hat einen neuen Gegner gefunden, den er auf Twitter attackieren kann: den Londoner Bürgermeister Sadiq Khan. Dem warf er vor, die Terrorgefahr verharmlost zu haben - so behauptete er, Khan habe den Londonern geraten, nicht in Alarmstimmung zu verfallen. Khan hatte direkt nach dem Anschlag in Bezug auf den großen Polizeieinsatz gesagt, es gebe keine Ursache dafür, in Alarmstimm...ung zu verfallen. Nun wiederholte Khan seinerseits seine Forderung, Trumps geplanten Besuch in Großbritannien abzusagen. "Zu einer Zeit, in der die Politik des US-Präsidenten gegen alles geht, wofür wir stehen, sollten wir ihm nicht den roten Teppich ausrollen", sagte er. Die "besondere Beziehung" zu den USA sei wie die zu einem engen Freund - den spreche man auch darauf an, wenn er falsch liegt. "Und Donald Trump liegt in vielen Dingen falsch."

this poem is popular in england at present.. probably because of the election.. its a bit long but a good read and a very good end.. its by Percy Bysshe Shelley .. after the peaceful crowds were attacked by the kings army..

Endless

As well as the tree does not end at the tips of its roots or its branches,

As well as the bird does not end at its feathers and its flight,

As well as the earth does not end at its highest mountain -  

So I also do not end at my arm, my foot, my skin,

But constantly reach outwards, into all space and all time,

With my voice and my heart:

For my soul is the universe.
