The Vacation Life

Most of us cannot physically live the vacation life on a daily basis. While that may be nice, we can live the vacation life every moment with the right mindset.

Accommodating the Water

Sometimes when we flail, fight and resist, we only sink deeper, perhaps even drown in our unwanted reality.

An Open Mind

Calming our emotions and looking deeply, we can become aware of our feelings and of whatever misperceptions we might have that could prevent us from hearing and understanding the other person.

Stillness is the Foundation of Understanding

Sometimes we have the impression that someone intentionally wants to make us suffer. Believing this, we can get very angry.


We practice Shamatha to slow down our agitated mind and gain stability. When we offer our mind a chance to calm down, we are offering ourselves a chance to observe and understand our inner workings.
