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)!

Please Note: Hot Zombies Cool Buddhas (HZCB) episodes have been taken out of rotation. A compilation with extra dimension is being assembled — stay tuned for a future release.

M#165 Mindfuling Not A Thing

Mindfuling is not a thing that you get or do or can ever be done with! It is process, a practice, an endeavor. This is another reflection on what was the title of the first Mindfuling podcast release about a year ago!

Nov 23, 2016

A longer than usual guided sit for this podcast, but a pretty typical guided sit at an SSIMC class. There is no substitute for sitting with others, meditating; even the best podcast pales in comparison to full bandwidth practice in a space set up to accommodate group meditation of the mindfuling sort.

Practice is repetition but that doesn't mean it is monotonous. In fact if you are seeing monotony then you are not really seeing the truth. But this too takes practice. A little bit every day, formally, allows flexibility to eventually be available. New, old, in-between practitioners all wake up over and over again. Some more kindly than others. Some more deeply than others. Some more consistently than others. So what? Develop your own practice reality — that's what.
