A Mindful Cell Phone

7 Comments April 10, 2009 / Posted in Meditation, Mindfulness, Uncategorized

Kip sent this to me,  Erin and Allison today.  Having just returned from Sydney it resonates with my need for opening my eyes and opening my heart.  All of our lives are amazing stories.

This video is seen through the lens of a cell phone.

Mankind Is No Island

As Thich Nhat Hanh would share:

“When we come into contact with the other person, our thoughts and actions should express our mind of compassion, even if that person says and does things that are not easy to accept. We practice in this way until we see clearly that our love is not contingent upon the other person being lovable.”

    silence inside. it could have been me that was on the street. Joe Reilly sings: what if you were born in another time and place? No money in your pocket, another colour on your face? No father and mother to embrace? etc. Interbeing is what connects us all together. The fortunate ones and the ones that go through hell in this life.
    thank you for this document. with gratefulness, a Lotus for you, tineke
