Gladdening the Mind
Noticing the good in our lives is a vital skill. In Buddhist teaching it is called ‘gladdening the mind’, which can be described as creating an ease of heart, growing the capacity to feel joy that can uplift us in times of trouble.
Meditation practice helps us to cultivate this skill, to connect to something bigger than our daily dramas, to see the vast blue sky beneath the clouds.
Many of us have worked out ways of gladdening the mind. For me, it’s immersion in nature. Even an underwhelming mid-winter landscape can be grounding, moving and exciting at the same time.
Warm greetings and hope to see you at my free online weekly meditations and Dharma talks with Palouse Mindfulness every Thursday at 19:00pm Paris/ 10:00am PST/13:00 EDT.
