Intentional Life – Mindfulness Design Series

It is an undeniable fact that the world is going through a period of accelerated geopolitical and macroeconomic transformation, as evidenced by Ray Dalio in his book The Changing World Order. These changes are even more visible in the world of technology, wherein artificial intelligence (AI) continues to be one of the main disruptors, responsible for introducing a high level of uncertainty and instability. We know that many of today’s professions will cease to exist and be replaced by algorithms. Imagine how this will feel, as it comes to pass.

The Undoing

Recently, about 30 of us participated in a group detox; apologies to anyone who disagrees, but I would say that it was a worthwhile experience! Along the way, there was some humor, some headaches, some aches, and some pains, but together, we got through it. This is an opportunity to reflect on why we use this technique, what it is and how it works at DeRose Meditation. I hope that if you could not participate, you may find this interesting.

DeRose Community: a jam to discover in these trying times

A strong community is one of our pillars.

A community can be a complex and abstract concept. To me, community is an emotional experience. I often hear our members say, “I feel I belong here”; “when I come here I feel at home”; “I feel I can trust you”; “I feel supported”; “I feel relaxed”; “I feel so good after a session,” and so on. It’s all about the feeling.

Meditation and Mind-wandering

Meditation is not about controlling your thoughts; it’s about not letting your thoughts control you. It is training for the mind, much like going to the gym is training for the body. Mind-wandering is a fact of the human condition. When we are trying to accomplish something, and our mind is somewhere else, we waste a lot of energy instead of focusing on the task at hand.

Every cloud has a silver lining

This vision of the world is possible when you have aspirations and dreams. Nothing is solely yours as much as your dreams. When you are nurturing your goals, aspirations, and dreams, you will always see a silver lining in the clouds.
