Nowadays many quickly bounce to a bias opinion, before knowing the facts… I discover “detectives” amongst friends, “specialists” about other’ people behavior and oddly some stick it out (past their quick voiced judgment…) even beyond a point of disapproved logic… Often such invitations to boycott others is based on a fluke of truth, a mere first emotion – bagatelle fractions of reality wrapped in harsh words. I like a good joke, a fun comparison; Good satyr and cynicisms sugar coat the already cruel reality amongst so many narrow minded opinions… we need to be less critical of the voices and expressions by others and more in tune with a fair view of the reality before us…
This reality is simple: Connect with nature, find inner balance, eat less synthetic products, show compassion.
Zen is just that. RELAX, feel the GROUND you stand on and measure your INTAKE.
Relax; control your breathing at least once a day. If the word meditation reminds you of religion, simply switch off your subconscious breathing reflex and control for a few minutes your air intake. Slow it down. Breath deep. Exhale your lungs completely, enjoy the rush…
Place yourself on earth; not fibrous carpet, dead wood or cemented floor. Earth. Bond, once a day, even when in a city, make an effort to touch base with “real” grounds.
Control your intake, the air, the water the food. The sound you listen to and what enters your body through your eyes. Close your eyes and if there is nervous twinkle, you are not relaxed. Listen to beautiful music, or the sounds of nature. Loud coordinated noise like most music does not aid you preferably. If silence frightens you; find a partner to share your “quiet” time with.
Watch what you eat – you are what you eat: seriously, if it is foremost synthetics then indeed you are partially synthetic…
From this perspective, form your opinion about events, actions and situations around you. You will discover that your ideologies are less angry, less bias and possibly less interested about the details that seem to dictate the lives of your friends.
All energies we set into motion are out there… I don’t know where, but I think we constantly walk through them, like spiderweb spun from trees. With all the kinetic energies, cell phones, electricity and voiced opinions it feels sometimes like walking through “clattered” air.
Look into the eyes of others and find nice words to share. Keep your message short and focused.
