Hey brother, this thread is simply amazingly espectacular!
I never really opened it because I am my own guide for living in the moment (after practicing mindfulness for almost 4 years) but something made me open it this time and I realized how awesome it is.
I will be sending it to friends and loved ones!
Keep up the good work!
"Nobody’s life is entirely free of pain and sorrow. Isn’t it a question of learning to live with them rather than trying to avoid them? The greater part of human pain is unnecessary. It is self-created as long as the unobserved mind runs your life. The pain that you create now is always some form of nonacceptance, some form of unconscious resistance to what is. On the level of thought, the resistance is some form of judgment. On the emotional level, it is some form of negativity. The intensity of the pain depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment, and this in turn depends on how strongly you are identified with your mind."
What is the biggest difference between someone living in 2009 and 1909? Distractions.

What are they seeking?
Carl Jung tells in one of his books of a conversation he had with a Native American chief who pointed out to him that in his perception most white people have tense faces, starting eyes and a cruel demeanor. He said: "They are always seeking something. What are they seeking? The whites always want something. They are always uneasy and restless. We don't know what they want. We think they are mad."
