Lately I spend a lot of time in what I call my front office. On a lounge chair drinking Tequila or a cold beer or warm it does not matter anymore. Watching the waves as they dance against the beach with the water mingling with the sand.
I have quite bit of work keeping up with the harsh environment, the salt air and spray makes a short life of everything here.
I do have time to relax and it allows me to think back of my beginnings days on the Path of the Clear Light with the Caribe waves dancing back and forth bringing memories back into focus. Mindfulness was one of the lessons that instilled distress within my mind for a few weeks.
Instead of Mindfulness I rather use Emptiness or Nothingness which I would prefer. It all deals with clearing the Mind from thought, a relax mind no thoughts. But, what is the purpose of a silent mind?
If you are not in touch with your own Inner Nature or Soul it does not matter.
Except, if are or you want to be in touch with your Inner Self it allows you to be more attentive to its cries and helpful suggestions through actual words and feelings. Making Awareness of your actual Self a little easier.
