DBR Short - Right Mindfulness highlight

July 18th, 2019

Welcome,

  I'm sharing the opening to the show we had in March 2019 on 'Right Mindfulness' 

Mindfulness is simply paying attention on purpose! 

 

And I offer this simple truth: The length of your life is only the length of your current breath. Your last one is gone forever and your next one isn't guaranteed.  

 

Take up breathing as a life skill. 

 

So what are you spending this precious moment on? 

Are you present in your moment? 

Are you often thinking about the past or the future? 

Living mindfully in the moment is the way to defeat stress, remove anger and live a better life. 

 

Take this link to the complete show. 

 

Thank you for listening.

DBR - 15 july 2019 - Seeds DNA Templates and your auto-pilot responses

July 15th, 2019

Welcome to the show, 

 

  Today we take a look our auto-pilot response to events in our life. We've been talking about how our beliefs, thoughts and the entire Universe are stored as seeds in a field, and the two are called 'Store Consciousness.'  These seeds manifest as your conscious awareness in your life and are passed along from generation to generation. 

 

 Likewise your DNA has passes on the traits, skills, likes and dislikes from 1000's of people in your parents lineage. You are the current endpoint in all these peoples DNA. 

 

To take this one level deeper to the person, your auto-pilot comes from 2 basic places.

1) Your familial DNA and Seeds

2) Stored in your subconscious as templates.

 

Every time you experience something it is recorded in your subconscious. Along with the storage of the event it records your physical, mental, emotional response to the event. 

The next time you experience the event your conscious mind asks the subconscious what you know about this thing and it pulls up the template, and then sets the body to those settings. 

 

Recall a loved one ... notice the feelings you have, the change of your thoughts, maybe even a little heart flutter.

That's the settings of the template in your subconscious. 

 

Recall someone you struggle with .... notice the changes? 

 

Please join us for a deeper looking into why you have your responses and how your daily practice can help you understand your response to life. 

 

Thank you listening and sharing.

Peace

DBR - 11 July 2019 - Can you be neither for nor against?

July 11th, 2019

Welcome,

 

“If you want the truth to stand clear before you, never be for or against. 

The struggle between ‘for’ and ‘against’ is the mind’s worst disease.”

~ Sent-ts’an,  Buddhist teacher 

 

The struggle between 'for' and 'against' can tear us apart, whether it's at a personal level or the collective.  

 

In a very real sense every choice you make is a 'for' or 'against' decision. Your life couldn't function without that.

 

So when does 'for' and 'against' become the minds worst disease? 

 

When your lack of clarity causes you to bounce back-and-forth between your choices. It becomes a dis-ease when it keeps you up at night, or when it causes a blindness to the truth of a situation.

 

'For' and 'against',  like everything are not 2 different things, but 2 points on a single continuum. And by better understanding each aspect you are better able to see the deeper truth of an object, an event, a person.

 

And after 25 years of practice I still not only have, but believe in 'for' and 'against.'   I may not be fully understanding the teaching OR the Buddhist Concept of Two Truths is at play, relative and absolute. 

 

In this world, with its relative truths of right and wrong, good and bad I believe there are sides to take. I believe there are things worth fighting for. Just to exaggerate the point ... even Ghandi took sides.

 

In today's show we talk about being 'for' or 'against' and how it may be playing out in the run to the 2020 Presidential Election.

 

We also talk about how using your practice can help you more clearly and affectively advocate for a position, whether it is related to immigration or affordable housing, without becoming lost in the emotions of it all. 

 

Our daily practice helps bring balance to head and heart, and with that we can more clearly if there are sides to take and why.

 

Thank you for listening

Peace

DBR - 4 July 2019 - Freedom from the inner dialog

July 4th, 2019

Weclome to the show! 

 

It's Independence Day in the USA and in this show we'll talk about Independence from the inner dialog and the messages that keeps us trapped dukkha (dissatisfaction). 

 

A daily mindfulness practice helps us win our Independence from negative thoughts and feelings. 

 

Today we look at three levels of Independence:

 

The individual and your role in the collective of the United States of America.

How do you want your individual beliefs to manifest in the collective through your civil actions and political participation. 

 

The individual in relationship with another. 

Spending time with my son recently I realized I moved from, have become freed from 'Dad mode.' I love being in Dad-mode, and my son is 21 years old. For the first time in our relationship we spent time together in 'Adult mode.'  I've found a tremendous amount of freedom in this shift. 

 

You as the individual.

By becoming the watcher of your thoughts you are able to choose where you put your energy, you are responsible for the world you manifest, even if you're in the role of responding to as situation. 

 

By using RIGHT EFFORT, RIGHT VIEW you are able to free yourself from the mind-made illusion you believe you are.

 

May all beings know Freedom and the causes of Freedom

 

Thank you for listening and sharing.

Peace

DBR - 28 June 2019 - Perceptions and the Democratic 2020 Debates

June 29th, 2019

Welcome to the show. 

 

As a follow up to the last show on verse 8 - perceptions we talk about the use of perceptions in politics. 

Politics, as in other aspects of life is a process of trying to get people to believe in and support an others world view. 

 

The 2020 Presidential Election will be one of the most pivotal elections in world history. This is not hyperbole. 

 

At this time in American history, and therefore world history we are being asked what is the version of America you currently hold and where would you like it to do. And as the most powerful country in the world, our wellness does impact the wellness of the rest of the world. 

 

Each of us is both individual and collective at the same time. You are a sovereign being with certain unalienable rights, and at the same time you are a member of the group with certain rights and responsibilities. 

 

At what level of personal and group consciousness do you vote with?

If you don't participate in what way does your apathy support the current situation? 

If you don't participate why do you abdicate your energy to others? 

 

A daily mindfulness practice helps us see more clearly, helps us stay out of the 3 mode of perceptions (always false). With better clarity of the truth we make better decisions about what we want to bring into our life. 

 

Thank you for listening.

Peace

EricThomas & SonyaLee
