Art Mindfulness Reading

July 9 . Issue #99

“What is the meaning of life?”According to the Dalai Lama, “The meaning of life is happiness.”

Hello all and welcome to my weekly newsletter. This week I share with you mindfulness movement tips, ear candy, eye candy and more…

I like the Dalai Lama’s response to that question about the meaning of life and I totally agree with him.

1. I am reading, for at least the second time; The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself, by Michael A. Singer.

And with some synchronicity, I happened to find this podcast featuring Michael Singer. Actually, my friends at Sounds True sent me a heads up, thank you. Ceasing to Be Caught in the Waters of Mind, Episode #1.

2. I spent some time near flowing water this week and I was inspired to practice moving. I have studied Japanese swordsmanship for many years. The practise sword I use is a heavy wooden sword called a suberito.

Moving in four directions I practised flowing and cutting invisible targets. I tried to empty my mind, to move without thinking, to move with no mind.

After an hour of practice, I felt great, tired but happy. I was working out at my sanctuary, on a deck, overlooking a river in the heart of nature.

 

3. Even in my remote area of Ontario I managed to take in some incredible UEFA Cup Soccer. My team is still in it, Forza Azzurre. Go Italy!

4. Farmers Markets and roadside stands with fresh vegetables, farm fresh eggs, maple syrup, honey and homemade jam. Some of the reasons to get away from the city and support your local farmers.

5. I received some great news this week and I wanted to share it with you all. My books are now at the Richmond Hill Public Library.

You can place a hold on them and get them for your at-home reading pleasure.

Thank you for reading. If you think someone you know would enjoy my newsletter please share it with them. If you are looking for a great children’s book check out my new book, Samba in Brazil;  Paperback version, on sale for a limited time.

Or one of my other books, Samba on a Snowy Day or the Brazilian/ Portuguese version Samba em um Dia de Neve.

Stay safe, stay well, stay strong and keep going.
