Oftentimes, if an opening post uses too much of an economy of words, it can leave people not quite sure about what's going on. I wasn't sure what to make of it in this instance, so then I usually ask a relatively simple question to grease the works. Doesn't always - work.
After reading your latest post above, I understand much better.
Glad you pulled through.
I don't think change always means improvement.
Maybe you can share one or two insights you got from your return to NB?
I suppose what I said was "yes" and what you said is "but..." if that makes sense.
I haven't been in a position to get formal training, so it benefits me only as far as my exposure to the printed word and yt videos takes me.
Sometimes, we can only make sense from where each is coming from.
Of all the snippets of info, articles and discussions about mindfulness practice, I never got the impression that it was a means to an end, it was the end or something like that. It was for its own sake, if that makes sense.
I am not able to delve into a deep practice right now but the small mindfulness I have acquired has helped me greatly. Which just shows how powerful Buddhism is even in small doses.
Yes - oh, amen to that. Love how you put it, reminds me of when I very first made efforts and how great and wondrous it felt...lately, I've fallen off the wagon so to speak, and I gotta get back.
