  4. Yesterday, while walking in the woods with our dogs, I was struck by the juxtaposition between winter and the freshly fallen snow. Winter is indeed a time of literal darkness (the contrast to summer being very stark here in Sweden). And yet, the snow brought with it a sense of great lightness and ease.

  11. My wife and I go on our mindful walks depending on the weather. On one of our most recent walks I noticed a red rock along the path that I'd hadn't seen before. As we got closer we found this message 'Be Kind'.

  17. This book is a beautiful, crucial read that invites us to consider an alternative way of living - and of viewing the various stages of life. Highly recommended!

    • Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts here Rachel. It is definitely a tricky subject as I personally feel it comes with both great benefit and detriment to wellbeing. I resonate with much of what you have said. One thing I'd like to add is a reflection I've often had when I see arguments unfolding on social media. It really makes me ponder how differently certain discussions would be if we had to communicate with people we disagree with face to face. I have seen many online disagreements evoke the quality of a bully-run schoolyard playground, which saddens me because I do not think that adults would speak to one another in the same way if we were together in person. I agree with you that in many ways digital technology increases our awareness and compassion towards things we would otherwise not know about, but at the same time, I think it has fractured our ability to communicate lovingly and wisely. I use Instagram as well. Just recently I permanently deleted my Facebook account (for many reasons). Even though it was just one of the online technologies I use, I feel lighter without it 馃檪
    • Hello Salliz! Welcome to the community 馃檪 Thank you for the introduction. It's wonderful to hear about your plans, and yes, I am sure you will learn everything you need to know as the process unfolds. Are you in the beginning stages of planning? In any case, you might like to join our Dream Support Team. It's a space to share what we're working on or dreaming of. 聽
    • As a child, I wanted to be an attorney but dropped out bcoz聽of some family issues. Now, planning on how o build a small animal farm for myself and the community. Don't know if am doing the right thing, but I will learn as time goes on聽 Thank you'll
    • Hey, my name is Grzegorz. I come from Poland, I am Envoy gratitude and an emotional techniques trainer. It's great that I am loved with you.
    • I聽found myself avoiding this inquiry.聽 My relationship with digital communication feels sticky, as I am sure it does for so many. On the one hand, I recognize that I am not a mass consumer of digital media.聽 The only social media platform I have ever used is Instagram, and only starting a few years back when my oldest child began using it and I wanted to be able to monitor.聽 I try to limit my news consumption to news catchall where I can glimpse the headlines from various sources, which I do twice a day at most.聽 Being online for work since the pandemic began has created an ever growing desire in me to not be on a screen.聽 And yet.... Trying to keep my mindfulness writings and practices current requires me to be online.聽 There are most definitely teachers and other people who's work I find inspiring, informative, and important.聽 But I still try to bring awareness to how the one step removed interactions impact my heart-mind.聽 The separateness is pronounced. There is so much via digital communication to learn from.聽 There is a sense of connection to others, and an illumination of the suffering of others, which catalyzes me to act in service.聽 But there is also an underlying current of mindlessness to being on a device all the time.聽 When I can, I step out without my phone, so in my 'empty' moments, I can look at the sky or trees or hear music while fully present n my car.聽 I miss the days of being unreachable, being able to truly disappear for a bit.聽 So聽I have to create them for myself where I can. Thanks for the question, @Gillian Sanger! Be well, everyone. Rachel
    • This week's question asks: How do digital communications聽impact compassion, belonging, and wellbeing? In what ways do they enhance and in what ways do they hinder these things? Take a moment to reflect on how digital technology has shaped our lives. There are pros and cons undoubtedly, and so I invite you to share your thoughts on how online communications have impacted compassion, belonging, and our overall sense of wellbeing.
    • Lovely words as always Rachel! I loved the many bits of wisdom peppered throughout聽this piece. This is a beautiful reminder to come back to the beginner's mind - and to slow things down. I often find myself walking quickly (I picked that up from my mother), rushing to get somewhere always... to escape this present moment. I will use your words as a soft nudge to take my movements with greater ease today.
    • Beautiful! Thank you for sharing Dawn. Do you have some kind of routine around this? And what is your preferred way of self-reflecting (i.e. meditation, journaling, while in nature)? I'd love to hear more.
    • Hi everyone- I hope this post finds you all safe and well in these continued uncertain days. I published a new blog post on my website last evening, and I wanted to share it with our community here.聽 Always, any feedback or wonderings it brings up are warmly welcomed! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1M5FdrImjHWrXmpqzYxKY5Cdvd2cGVToucOM-OVcFoiw/edit?usp=sharing My site, if anyone is curious, is: rachelpottsorg.wordpress.com Wishing you ease as the week begins. Be well- Rachel
