It was on this same trip to work the other day, walking a different way, seeing different things, that I spotted this sign:
"FEED YOUR MIND."
And it led me to wondering... What are you feeding your mind?
Are you nourishing it?
Or mindlessly stuffing some junk in for a quick bit of rush?
What are you putting in there?
(And what are you hoping to get back out of it?)
In his book, "Savor: Mindful Eating, Mindful Life," world renown Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh writes about mindful consumption. Not just of food. But of everything you ingest: television, conversations, images, thoughts.
So, if you were to look at the typical "diet" you feed your mind, what might you find?
