Indigestion in the Mind

October 25, 2012

Book coverA lack of balance in life boils down to not being fully aware in situations and not feeling present. The present moment of action is not properly accomplished, for when a person is halfway through dealing with the present action, he or she is already drifting on to the next action. This produces a kind of indigestion in the mind. There is something always left incomplete, like leaving a fruit half eaten.

From “Nonviolence ” in Smile at Fear: Awakening the True Heart of Bravery, pages 45–46.

    To be a citizen means to help your community be the best it can be. You are a member of many communities: your family, your place of work or school, your place of worship, your city, your country, and the planet. Participation in your community presents an opportunity to model nonviolent action, peaceful resolution, and how each of us can and do make a difference.
