I wanted to remind myself of these words this morning. I'm spending today at a mindfulness day 'retreat' (of silent meditation practice and mindful movement) and at a local Buddhist centre. It's the final day of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course I've been attending and following since October. I'm really looking forward to it, and a bit sad it's finishing. There's even a psychiatrist on the course. He's a good guy, I like him.
Following the idea of ‘letting it be’, I liked finding this quote this morning with its ancient teaching encouraging the practice of mindfulness, of letting it be…
In what is seen, let there be just the seen;
In what is heard, let there be just the heard;
In what is sensed, let there be just the sensed;
In what is thought, let there be just the thought.
From the Sutta Nipata
(considered one of the oldest Buddhist scriptures)
