His problem? "Anyone can do this"

Standard

I got an email quite a while ago. This guy had signed up for my ChiFusion course. And a few hours later, he emailed me to ask for a refund. (This was back in the days when I offered refunds.) I don’t have the exact email in front of me. But if memory serves, it […]

Healing the deep divisions

Standard

In yesterday’s email, I mentioned healing. Specifically the healing you’ll get from our ECS work. (ECS = Extended Conscious Self, our focus in Mindful Masters) Now, I don’t mean healing in the narrow sense of physical health. Although improved health is bound to occur with our approach. Instead, I mean healing in a different way. […]

Mindfulness is lonely

Standard

Mindfulness can be a lonely pursuit. After all, mindfulness is something only you can do for yourself. Mindfulness isn’t found in groups. You can’t do it for others. And you can’t have others do it for you. When it comes to mindfulness, you are really on your own.   But the problem with this is […]

Mindfulness is trivial

Standard

I’m nearly finished recording the audios for the newest version of the Three Monk Course. Most of you who joined the course when I offered it in June are near the end of Part 1 of the course, or just starting part 2. But I’ve been recording ahead, just to make sure all the audios […]

Psychic powers are trivial

Standard

Saturday morning, I sent the September newsletter off to the unsung heroes of Mindful Masters … my proofreaders. Let me tell you, these people earn their keep. You think my daily email has typos, you ain’t seen nothing until you’ve seen one of my uncorrected newsletters. My brain usually races ahead of my fingers, and […]

No psychic fast food

Standard

Another great true story, from NotAlwaysRight.com …   Two brothers in San Bernardino, California work at the same store in a shopping center. Everyday they eat lunch together at a fast food place that’s in the parking lot. They always order the same meal. There’s a third guy who also eats there every day, ordering […]

Psychic mindfulness is no joke

Standard

I went to a psychic the other day, but I knew she couldn’t see into the future when she took my personal check as payment. (Rimshot – Ba dum tssshhh)   I went to a psychic one time who was so smug and pleased with himself that I felt an overwhelming urge to punch him […]

Psychic abilities: to believe or not believe?

Standard

About six months ago in one of my daily emails, I wrote about what I considered the toughest thing to learn about mindfulness. (At least for those new to mindfulness.) And that is … Mindfulness is NOT about what you think, what you feel, or what you do. Instead, it’s about HOW you think, HOW […]

Now I'm just disappointed

Standard

Great story from the NotAlwaysFriendly website:   In Nottingham, England, three friends need to get to an event at a specific time. Since two of the friends didn’t have a drivers license, the third friend offered to drive. They were in the car on their way to the event. But unfortunately, traffic started to build […]

Digging the hermit

Standard

Quite a few people enjoyed the Digg video I sent out on Friday. Mindful Master D. summed it up well: “I really enjoyed the video …. That is a great example of programming preventing people from seeing the world as it is.” I agree. The people in the video come up with an answer, and […]
