Chapter Twelve


Glimpses of Wholeness, Delusions of Separateness


Have you ever looked at a dog and really seen it in its total "dogness"? A dog is quite miraculous when you really see it. What is it? Where did it come from? Where is it going? What is it doing here? Why is it shaped the way it is? What is its "view" of things, of the neighborhood? What are its feelings?

Children tend to think about things this way. Their vision is fresh. They see things as if for the first time every time. Sometimes our seeing gets tired. We just see a dog. "If you've seen one, you've seen them all." So we barely see it at all. We tend to see more through our thoughts and opinions than through our eyes. Our thoughts act as a kind of veil preventing us from seeing things with fresh eyes. What comes into view is identified by the thinking, categorizing mind and quickly framed: a dog. This mind actually prevents us from seeing the dog in its fullness. It processes and categorizes the "dog" signal very quickly in our brain and then moves on to do the same to the next perception or thought.

When my son was two years old, he wanted to know if there was a person inside of our dog. It warmed my heart to see through his eyes in that moment. I knew why he was asking. Sage was a real family member. He had his rightful place. His presence was felt, he participated in the psychic space of the house, he was a complete being, as much a "personality" as any of the people in the family. What could I say to him?

Never mind dogs. What about a bird, or a cat, or a tree, or a flower, or a rhinoceros?! They are all quite miraculous really. When you really look at one, you can hardly believe it exists; there it is, this perfect thing, just being what it is, complete in itself. Any imaginative child could have dreamed up a rhinoceros, or an elephant, or a giraffe. But they didn't get here as the product of a child's imagination. The universe is spinning these dreams. They come out of the universe, as do we.

It doesn't hurt to keep this in mind on a daily basis. It would help us to be more mindful. All life is fascinating and beautiful when the veil of our routinized thinking lifts, even for a moment.

There are many different ways of looking at any thing or event or process. A dog is just a dog. In one way there is nothing special about it; at the same time it is extraordinary, even miraculous. It all depends on how you are looking at it. We might say that it is both ordinary and extraordinary. The dog doesn't change when you change the way you look. It is always just what it is. That is why dogs and flowers and mountains and the sea are such great teachers. They reflect your own mind. It is your mind that changes.

When your mind changes, new possibilities tend to arise. In fact everything changes when you can see things on different levels simultaneously, when you can see fullness and connectedness as well as individuality and separateness. Your thinking expands in scope. This can be a profoundly liberating experience. It can take you beyond your limited preoccupations with yourself. It can put things in a larger perspective. It will certainly change the way you relate to the dog.

When you observe things through the lens of mindfulness, whether it be during formal meditation practice or in daily living, you invariably begin to appreciate things in a new way because your very perceptions change. Ordinary experiences may suddenly be seen as extraordinary. This does not mean that they stop being ordinary. Each is still just what it is. It's just that now you are appreciating them more in their fullness.

Chapter Thirteen


On Healing


When we use the word healing to describe the experiences of people in the stress clinic, what we mean above all is that they are undergoing a profound transformation of view. This transformation is brought about by the encounter with one's own wholeness, catalyzed by the meditation practice. When we glimpse our own completeness in the stillness of any moment, when we directly experience ourself during the body scan or the sitting or while practicing the yoga as whole in that moment and also as part of a larger whole, a new and profound coming to terms with our problems and our suffering begins to take place. We begin to see both ourselves and our problems differently, namely from a perspective of wholeness. This transformation of view creates an entirely different context within which we can see and work with our problems, however serious they may be. It is a perceptual shift away from fragmentation and isolation toward wholeness and connectedness. With this change of perspective comes a shift from feeling out of control and beyond help (helpless and pessimistic) to a sense of the possible, a sense of acceptance and inner peace and control. Healing always involves an attitudinal and emotional transformation. Sometimes, but not always, it is also accompanied by a major reduction in physical symptoms and by improvement in a person's physical condition.

This transformation of view comes about in many different ways as people immerse themselves in mindfulness-meditation practice. In the stress clinic, sometimes people have sudden and dramatic experiences during meditation that lead them to new ways of seeing. More frequently people speak of moments of simply feeling deeply relaxed or confident. Many times they don't even recognize such experiences at the time they are happening as being particularly important, although they often can't remember having had such an experience before. These incremental transformations can be quite subtle. Yet they can be as profound or even more so than the more dramatic ones. Dramatic or subtle, such shifts in perspective are signs of seeing with eyes of wholeness. Out of this shift in perspective comes an ability to act with greater balance and inner security in the world, especially when encountering stress or pain.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great introduction to the practice of mindfulness meditation! 19 novembre 2013
Par Sarah E. Everett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I remember when Bill Moyers first interviewed Jon Kabat-Zinn and I have been interested in mindfulness meditation off and on ever since. Five months ago I lost my husband. I also have Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency or "inherited emphysema" and I am on oxygen 24/7. This past summer the stress from both became unbearable. So I bought the book. It is an extremely easy read and the author lulls you into the practice, little by little, from page one. I am now a convert and I plan to take a live course the beginning of next year. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Still so relevant -- good update 14 octobre 2013
Par M. Wolf - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a great book and this update does not detract or do more than was originally presented. I am a social worker in a medical setting. This book is great in that first and foremost it provides a reminder, a vision, a focus, a lessons on being in the moment and the power of being in the moment for me. It also provides a rich source to help the people I work with.

If you are looking for a book that helps the focusing on the moment and looking at what is right (as opposed to what is wrong) this is great. While I as well as other may have "diagnosis" it is not in the diagnosis where I will find wellness. Being present, which is needed to see strengths, is where wellness is to be found. This is a great book for being in the moment so the journey to wellness can progress.

Highly recommended for anyone wanting to learn about mindfulness, healing, wellness, and how to cope with pain or other chronic conditions.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Problems, for me, with the Kindle version... 20 janvier 2014
Par Sascha Suenos - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I love this book-- so much, I had two paper copies of it, one which I marked up, and one which I kept pristine.

The Kindle version, however, has insurmountable drawbacks for me.

The Kindle version is still great, imho, for straight reading. But if reading the book convinces you to put the program to use, well...for that you need to be able to easily find lots of different chapters, pages and sections, and I find it way too difficult to get where I want to go with neither a table of contents or index.

If I had it to do over again, I might still get the Kindle, in order to have the book with me in, shall we say, Stress Emergencies, as something to read for a quick perspective adjustment and calmer-- because for me, reading pretty much anywhere in the book can accomplish that.

Still, it bugs me that I spent the money on the Kindle, yet still have to allocate at-a-premium shelf space to my big, fat, paper copy, for when I want to actually work the program day by day according to his instructions/suggestions.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Book Ever on Stress and Mindfulness 28 octobre 2013
Par McDee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I came across this book recently while reading an article in the Mayo Clinic Health Letter on mindfulness and I am so glad that I did. Down to earth, logical information on reducing stress and how to not react to stress in the same (not working for me) manner. I wish that I had known about it years ago; it is that useful! I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to reduce his or her reaction to the stresses in life and life a longer, happier life.
