The file above is a PDF of the chart I referenced during the August 4th meditation group. Please download it and review it. Over the week see if you can identify your personal attention tendencies, so that at our next meeting on August 11th you will be able to gain more insight into the practices that support your particular attention tendencies.
Also, at the end of our meeting Jill shared the Monk Manual, a special kind of planner that helps with balancing doing and being. If you are interested you can learn more about it here: https://monkmanual.com
One realm we have never conquered--the pure present. One great mystery of time is terra incognita to us--the instant. The most superb mystery we have hardly recognized--the immediate, instant self.
I am Myohye Do'an, a bhikṣu (fully ordained Chán Buddhist monk) and Chán Master. Here I share my thoughts and observations about living a life of compassion, attention and gratitude.
