Bells and Whistles
Adding various bits and pieces to this site. Counter, comments, trying out WebBuddy etc. Will it work? Of course it won't.
Swimming with awarenessBack to swimming meditation. Not much time in my life for actual good old meditation meditation. Mostly clearing up the toys meditation, or fixing up the house meditation. Anyway, I've noticed I can maintain awareness better while swimming in the longet 50 metre pool, rather than the indoor 25 m pool. Reaching the end breaks the rhythm, and I find I have to start focussing again.

Fifth Mindfulness Training of Thich Nhat Hanh Aware of the suffering caused by unmindful consumption, I vow to cultivate good health, both physical and mental, for myself, my family, and my society by practicing mindful eating, drinking and consuming. I vow to ingest only items that preserve peace, well-being and joy in my body, in my consciousness, and in the collective body and consciousness of my family and society. I am determined not to use alcohol or any other intoxicant or to ingest foods or other items that contain toxins, such as certain TV programs, magazines, books, films and conversations. I am aware that to damage my body or my consciousness with these poisons is to betray my ancestors, my parents, my society and future generations. I will work to transform violence, fear, anger and confusion in myself and in society by practicing a diet for myself and for society. I understand that a proper diet is crucial for self-transformation and for the transformation of society.
