Deceptive labeling practices for the unmindful

Standard

Apparently, it has been revealed that the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks does not have any pumpkin in it! Yes, that’s the headline being reported by all the major media outlets over the last month. It’s just another example of deceptive food labeling practices being done to hide the truth from us poor, naive consumers. […]

My psychic does not lie

Standard

Another true story from the NotAlwaysRight.com. This happened at the call center for a major hotel chain. A woman called to report a theft. She said, “I had something stolen from me at one of your hotels. I would like it returned to me, or I will sue you.” The guest services representative apologized. “I’m […]

Delivering mindful growth and enjoyment

Standard

I want to thank everyone who responded to me after Friday’s email. In that email, I took a look back at how far we’ve come. Just in such a relatively short time in Mindful Masters. We’ve covered practices and techniques I never actually thought I would ever get to teach. I wanted to teach it, […]

Taking a look back

Standard

We cover a lot of different things in these daily “inner circle” emails. Some of it inspirational (I hope). Some of it informational (I hope). Some of it fun (I hope). But a major reason for these emails is to let you know what we are doing in Mindful Masters newsletter. Most of you subscribe […]

Mindful doing and non-doing

Standard

When it comes to mindfulness, I often feel there’s this delicate balance between doing and not doing. Between acting with a purpose vs. letting things happen.   We do a lot of purposeful acting in our mindfulness approach. We have a number of insight exercises. We have a number of chi energy (qigong) practices, including […]

Tuning your inner psychic radio

“Synchronicity was out in full force, and that thought triggered a theory. What if synchronicity was a real ‘force’? What if it wasn’t just strong coincidences? Was if synchronicity was a powerful energy, an energy that changed facts?” – “Einstein’s Secret” by Irving Belateche   We’ve been talking this month about psychic mindfulness. Where coincidence, […]

The elephant shoes of mindfulness (psychic predictions)

Standard

I got a great field report on Saturday from one of our Mindful Masters. He and his wife have been doing one of our psychic mindfulness exercises. It’s the “predictions” exercise that was in our September paper-and-ink-newsletter. In this exercise, you make five daily predictions. Of course, they aren’t really “predictions” in the normal sense. […]

I went ahead anyway (college for the unmindful)

Standard

Crow T. Robot: “Believe me, Mike, I calculated the odds of this succeeding against the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid … and I went ahead anyway.” – from Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie   A great “infophobic” line from the Crow character of MST3K. For those of you new here, “infophobia” is […]

I got fluxed (mindful circadian rhythms)

Standard

Hey, I have something a little different for you today. I don’t know if any of you use your computers, phones, or tablets at night or early in the morning. But I’ve been reading about how the blue light from computer screens and electronic devices interfere with our circadian rhythm. Our circadian rhythm is an […]

Is it still a secret if it's wrong?

Standard

I got this message from one of our Mindful Masters this week. She’s not only in Mindful Masters, but she’s also taking the Three Monk Mindfulness course right now. She’s in week 3, and sent me this comment:   ———-   Hi Al~ Re: Three Monk – Week 3, Lesson #5 – What I Believe. […]
