Mixed Media Monday: Thinking

mixed media ATC buddha by artist and retreat leader Bronwyn SimonsI practice mindfulness meditation, a deceptively simple and very powerful buddhist mind training practice. In mindfulness meditation we don't attempt to empty our minds, we don't focus on an object, image, or mantra; we don't hold a goal of peace or transcendence or changing the nature of our mind in any way. It's all about noticing and observing. You sit, you notice and observe the breath. And when you notice that you are thinking, instead of judging the stream of thoughts ot attempting to stop or change it, you just notice, and gently remind yourself, "thinking." Just name the thought, "thinking."

When I saw this week's Mixed Media Monday topic, "What Was S/He Thinking," I knew I wanted to submit a piece about the process of mindfulness mediatation - so here are two more ATC's! Happy Monday!
