Welcome to Mindfuling, the podcast with Paul M. Cheevers

Mindfulness meditation is not a thing — it is an activity of doing. It is key to an eight faceted practice capable of freeing us from discontent. Being mindful is being deeper than the ocean, stronger than practiced aversion, quicker than chronic bad habits and easier than pi(e)!

The MAW is Mindfuling at Weekend, a compilation of the previous week's releases with a little nip and addition. Writing this I am reminded of a favorite quote from the Great Zen Master in middle ages Japan: Flowers fall with our attachment, weeds spring up with our aversion.

When we practice skillfully we can see the beauty of the flower, allow its coming and going easily, not growing angry when the inevitable falling petal hits our mind.

A 4' 33" sound meditation. With a dog named Moxie. In a vehicle. Wicked windy outside and the surf is churning about a hundred feet away. All these words are not the point of listening.

So you get sick, we all do, and you take a vacay from formal practice. Of course. Or of course not. Practiciing while sick is great. (However, practicing with others when you are a huffing contaminant, that's a different story.) This podcast can be great for practicing whilst not feeling so great.

Transition from a Breath Awareness through a Sound Awareness to a General Awareness and back again is discussed and practiced. You can use the breath as your sole object but you can move into a wider mode of awareness once a steady awareness is established. This is not easy to do with true moment-to-moment fidelity but give it a try. Beware of Ping Pong mind during the transitions.
