Change and the desire for stability make up the paradoxes of life. We yearn for peace of soul, but the tranquility that accompanies happiness requires the energetic pursuit of a practical ideal.  We all desire the comfort of physical and economic well being, but the realization of these pleasures requires sustained effort and expanded knowledge. We desire a peaceful world, but a world of harmony demands the constant practice of the arts of love and justice. We live in a sea of changing currents.  To live well we need to learn how to navigate our way through the storms of life and how to enjoy the calm waters of the good days.

Practical Mindfulness:

The program of Practical Mindfulness is designed to help us strengthen our rational and supra-rational tendencies.  Without a sense of vision and habits of rational thinking brilliant strategies and techniques are like expensive golf clubs in the hands of a duffer.  A good artist, a good athlete, a good executive, and a good anybody will use their sense of vision to invent ways to realize their ideals.  Strategies and techniques do not automatically work for us.  Vision is necessary to excel and to make strategies work. Practical Mindfulness creates strategies and techniques within the context of our personal vision.
