Radical Mindfulness

Radical Mindfulness - Your curiosity gives you the energy to be more open. Being able to see things in a different way. Sathi and some of the meditators discuss why it is so valuable to keep a neutral mind. Neither settling in on the pleasant or the unpleasant thoughts or emotions. Practice just being an observer.

Radical Mindfulness

Why each meditation is different.

Every meditation is different. Sathi talks about how this translates into everyday life, each breath is different, which translates to each moment of our lives. We can't predict the future but can only focus on what is happening. This is the reality of impermanence. Sathi also explores the idea of dukkha or the emotional and physical struggles we face when we forget about this reality of living in the moment. One example he uses is our interpretation of the weather being either good (sunshine) or bad (rain or snow). It is just weather and we should recognize it as just that. As part of the discussion, Sathi answers a meditator's question on what the phrase "losing yourself" means.

Why each meditation is different.

How Is Your Mind?

Sathi asks, "How is your mind?" By asking this question often you can see if your mind is where you want it to be. He uses the metaphor of a lake with very high waves, as the world around us. An unmindful person is like going out in a kayak and becoming swamped. But, a mindful person is like having a larger motorboat with more power and being able to handle the rough water fairly easily. You can either wait for the waves to go away, or you can build a stronger boat. Through meditation practice, you are learning how to separate what are outside influences (out of your control) from what is your true self. This allows you to observe the "waves" and not be overcome by them. An interesting discussion follows.

Forgiveness

Sathi talks about forgiveness both of yourself as well for others. He talks about the danger of holding in anger toward another and offers several practical tips on how to let go including thinking of nice things that person has done and realizing that none of us are perfect.

On Being Skillful

The Metta Meditation Practice contains the phrase: May all living being be well, happy, skillful, and peaceful. Sathi explains what the term "skillful" means in this context. If you see a fire outside, then you need to find a solution for outside. Not inside where there is no fire. What is happening is we bring the fire that is outside into ourselves. Then we struggle. A skillful person will not do this. Being skillful means that even if the situation is angry, do not become angry. Remain who you are. Even if the situation causes sadness. Remain as who you are without losing yourself into sadness. Even if the situation is causing frustration. Remain who you are without losing yourself into frustration. That is the way of living for a skillful person.

Planting Seeds of Compassion

Sathi often closes the guided meditation with a brief Metta meditation. May all living beings be well, happy, skillful, and peaceful. In this recording, he explains how that is planting a seed of compassion and love after the meditators have settled and emptied their minds. Sathi talks about how each meditator is reshaping themselves to become more compassionate and less responsive to anger and irritation. He gives several practical examples including how we deal with children acting out and adults who are "acting out. A meditator asks about responding to a spouse who triggers non-compassionate behavior. Another meditator talks about being with a group of angry people who are uncomfortable being around a calm, non-angry person.
