  1. The rub of course is that most people have to carry on their difficult lives and their miserable pointless jobs. But then as our friends in the East say, before enlightenment chop wood, carry water. And the same after.

    1. Love that.

      I have a little bit of issue with the whole idea of mindfulness by that Zinn guy, though, and then the people that typically get all excited about mindfulness.

      But as a counselor I got to get over my attitude and think about that there are all sorts of different types of people that grab hold of all sorts of different types of things that will help themselves.

      And this particular post, I think it is good because there are people exemplified by the person in the post that it’s about, who indeed see life as she did and then various things happen and then mindfulness is this really great thing that she’s come upon.

      And, great.

      I think my gripe with the whole capital M mindfulness thing is that I don’t think such a state exists For the whole of the human category. I think there is mindfulness practices that can be helpful, but personally I’m not sure that I need to “balance” anything in my life to have a “mental health”. And I’m not sure that is the key for everyone’s mental health.
      For sure, for certain people it Canby. But I’m not sure that I need to find my Zen cloud in order to be content and happy in the life that I’m living. And people that speak of mindfulness tend to speak about it as if it’s some sort of better state of being that I am not right now. And I have difficulty with that kind of implicit condemnation.
      So: yes! Your comment. 🧑🏾‍🚀
