The feeling that any task is a nuisance will soon disappear if it is done in mindfulness
~ Thích Nhất Hạnh

 

Welcome to the 48th edition of the MayWeather Newsletter series, a weekly newsletter where I share my thoughts and new ideas on things that I learn on personal productivity; somewhere between due diligence, good thinking and note-taking.


<<First Name>>,

I received a number of replies to the previous newsletter and I have decided to share one with you today.


Olutola thinks meditation is a worthy investment because learning it is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere. This is definitely a statement born out of experience. 

She believes that meditation is one of her super powers: it helps me know and feel that everything is still under control. Equally, the bigger picture becomes clearer when you are given to meditation.

There is just a thin line between meditation and worry or over thinking.
If you know how to worry, then you can meditate. While the resultant effect is different, they are hinged on the same principle.

You know why worrying is wrong?
In worrying, you are creating anxiety for an impending problem or a pending problem. Worrying is a really long road that leads nowhere and the end is unproductive.

She strongly believes that meditation can help refresh the human mind, brain and body. 

In conclusion, she said: meditation is not that easy. It takes intentional effort to really focus while meditating.

To enjoy the process of meditation, one needs to stay clear from any form of distraction. 



Weekly Thread of Wisdom 

Book Review
Awareness
Anthony De Mello


If you turn on the light of awareness, darkness will disappear. 

The author crushes many of our generally accepted (but false) beliefs that contribute to our “mechanical existence”, which resembles more sleep than wakefulness.

De Mello’s style is extremely direct, almost harsh, but it delivers his points really well. So if you are about to begin reading Awareness it’s more important than usual to approach it with an open mind.


In Closing 
It's a good time to remind you that the seemingly little things add up to a long and happy life. Maintain a sound mind in a sound body.  

Until next week,
Jibsss
