Mindfulness Meditation - Thursday 23 March 2017

Om
The syllable "om" is first described as all-encompassing mystical entity in the Upanishads. Today, in all Hindu art and all over India and Nepal, 'om' can be seen virtually everywhere, a common sign for Hinduism and its philosophy and theology. Hindus believe that as creation began, the divine, all-encompassing consciousness took the form of the first and original vibration manifesting as sound "OM".

The essential meditation is Silence. We are made of sound and silence. Sound is our mind; silence is our being. Sound is our trouble; silence is our liberation.All other meditations are different forms of witnessing, but witnessing is present in every kind of meditation as an essential part. Vipassana Page

Enlightenment ~ Osho
Remember, enlightenment is not somewhere else, neither in space nor in time, it is here-now. And if you hurry too much you will go astray, you will go far away. The whole thing is to slow down -- to slow down so deeply that one day NOTHING moves in you. In that very moment, in that moment of no-movement, you will become enlightened. Particularly for the Western mind speed is an obsession. They think that from the bullock cart they have come to the jet, so why can't speedy methods be developed for enlightenment? If the coffee can be instant, then why can't NIRVANA be instant? But they don't understand, because NIRVANA IS not somewhere else, otherwise it could have been possible to go with speed. It is already the case. You have to come only where you are. You have to be that which you already are. So the faster you go, the further away you will reach -- far away from enlightenment. It is not a question of reaching, it is not a question of arriving -- you have to simply slow down. And that's what the whole teaching of Tao is, and my teaching too.  www.youtube.com/watch

Om Chant 
OM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence. Shantih means silence and it is always repeated three times because, by the time you reach to the fourth, you are no more – just the silence has remained. You have disappeared as an entity separate from the universe.  www.youtube.com/watch

The Three-Minute Breathing Space Practice ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn
There are three steps to the practice:
Attend to what is. The first step invites attending broadly to one’s experience, noting it, but without the need to change what is being observed.
Focus on the breath. The second step narrows the field of attention to a single, pointed focus on the breath in the body.
Attend to the body. The third step widens attention again to include the body as a whole and any sensations that are present.www.youtube.com

Don't be Imitative ~ Osho
These Talks on Zen from 'The First Principle' Chapter 4 - Go with the River were given in 1977 in India "Listening to the song of the birds or the murmur of the wind passing through the trees, or the river, you can remain without language for a few seconds. And in those seconds will be the proof of what I have been saying to you. Suddenly you will see as if a great darkness has disappeared and everywhere is light. You can see as if the doors of perception have been cleansed."  www.osho.com

Being gentle with ourselves: training the puppy ~ Dr Richard Chambers
The mind is in many ways like an untrained puppy. We want it to stay on its mat or stay in one place, but it just keeps wandering off. That's the nature of a puppy and it's the nature of our untrained minds. They might just get interested in something else and sort of wander off and have a bit of a sniff. Or maybe jump up and run off and go on the road, you know, causing problems. Or perhaps we stop paying attention for a moment. And then suddenly we're like, where's it gone, and the puppy is over in the corner chewing on a slipper or peeing in the corner. And it can cause problems for us. https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/

Happy ~ Derren Brown
Derren Brown has written a book on happiness, so it seems reasonable to assume he is something of an expert. He says he is happy, and judging by the bibliography, he has definitely read a lot on the subject. But I’m not sure the two of us agree on what happiness is. His book, Happy, advocates “contentment”, “tranquillity”, a “considered” life. It all feels so unexciting.“It doesn’t sound very joyful, does it?” Brown agrees. “But would you press the button for consistently joyful, which is clearly not real or a bit mad or exhausting, or would you press the button for a robust sense of calmness and balance?” I think, in that situation, I would hunt around for a third button, the one marked “frequent spontaneous bursts of ecstasy” – there is something listless about the thought of all that calmness – but Brown sees balance as “a much more helpful aim. I think it’s what we want.”   www.youtube.com/watch

Going to the places that scare you ~ Pema Chodron
We always have a choice, Pema Chödrön teaches: We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us and make us increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder. In this talk, Pema provides the tools to deal with the problems and difficulties that life throws our way. This wisdom is always available to us, Pema teaches, but we usually block it with habitual patterns rooted in fear. Beyond that fear lies a state of open heartedness and tenderness. This talk is a guide on how to awaken our basic goodness and connect with others, to accept ourselves and others complete with faults and imperfections, and to stay in the present moment by seeing through the strategies of ego that cause us to resist life as it is. www.youtube.com/watch

Mindfulness ~ With Jon Kabat-Zinn
Jon chats about the deeper dimensions of a mindfulness practice and the ‘self-realisation’ that unfolds as a result of the practice. He also clears up some common misconceptions about mindfulness and invites us to know for ourselves the sacredness that is inherent in the present moment. He also answers the question, ‘Is there a right way to practice?’ or ‘a right tradition?’ and gives wise advice on dealing with one of the biggest challenges in awakening.

Watching The Breath ~ Osho
Every university, every science institute, should make it absolutely necessary that anybody who graduates as a scientist has also to graduate as a meditator. And meditation will be the priority. If you cannot pass as a meditator, you cannot be allowed a science degree from the university. That's the only way -- to make every scientist a meditator so that he becomes aware in himself of deeper things -- life, love, consciousness -- and ultimately the eternity of one's being....

Essence of Meditation ~ Laurence Freeman
Meditation is a universal spiritual wisdom and a practice that we find at the core of all the great religious traditions, leading from the mind to the heart. It is a way of simplicity, silence and stillness. It can be practised by anyone from wherever you are on your life’s journey. It is only necessary to be clear about the practice and then to begin – and keep on beginning.

Om Chant 
OM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence. Shantih means silence and it is always repeated three times because by the time you reach to the fourth, you are no more – just the silence has remained. You have disappeared as an entity separate from the universe.  www.youtube.com/watch
