A short film of Jon Kabat-Zinn describing the 9 important attitudes to a mindfulness meditation practice
~ kindly brought to us by The Mindfulness Summit
Ambition left to itself always becomes tedious, its only object, the creation of larger and larger empires of control;
but a true vocation calls us out beyond ourselves; breaks our heart in the process and then humbles, simplifies and enlightens us about the hidden, core nature of the work that enticed us in the first place.
We find that all along, we had what we needed from the beginning and that in the end we have returned to its essence, an essence we could not understand until we had undertaken the journey…….
…A true vocation always metamorphoses both ambition and failure into compassion and understanding for others….
~ David Whyte
