No Mistake

When something’s in the forefront of your attention, it’s funny how you suddenly start seeing it everywhere. Since I wrote the last post, the mistake concept has been popping up. Just the idea of mistake, fortunately – not actual ones. (As of yet. Stay tuned. I feel one creeping up on me any minute now.)

There’s this, from Tibetan Buddhist Lama Mipham: Problems in the world are created by mistaken attitudes, afflictions, in our own minds.

And here’s an interesting blog by Eric Leonardson on mistakes in listening, and how conscious listening contributes to environmental awareness and an “acoustic ecology.”

Deep listening, from a still, placid place. The place that holds no judgment, no attitude, no push-back – Just in a quest to hear what’s really true.

It’s the first step to wisdom. No mistake about it.

The cats, deeply listening to their inner exhaustion.

About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.
