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.

The Fuel Of Gossip, FOG. Just because there is energy and oomph to a story doesn't mean it is wise to engage, tell or perpetuate a version of a story. Unverified second hand information presented as truth is delusion and can be wrapped up a greed and fear. Gossip is a powerfully blinding toxin to the heart and mind, which has to include the body.

Mindfulness is not what you think. Or, don't believe everything you think. Or, get over your self. Or, I Get confused by my thoughts and actually believe them to be truer than true.

Ya, it is a rabbit hole if you stay thinking, reading, listening to others talk. Learn to practice being fully Mindful across the foundations and this all makes sense. It is clear beyond words.

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.
