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.

Par Legoual
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Un livre référence sur la pratique de la méditation pour des Occidentaux puisque c'est celui que Jon Kabat-Zinn a écrit à partir de son retour d'expériences comme praticien. Pour ceux qui peuvent lire en anglais c'est un véritable plaisir de lecture.
Peut utilement être complété par l'ouvrage en français du même Jon Kabat-Zinn accompagné du CD audio de méditations pleine conscience guidées par la voix de Bernard Giraudeau.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great introduction to the practice of mindfulness meditation! 19 novembre 2013
Par Sarah E. Everett - Publié sur
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 Sometimes I think back... 18 avril 2014
Par Yi - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
To the days of my life before I found this book, or as I sometimes like to look at it, before this book found me. I was a high strung mess of anxiety, even afraid to go to work and face the "challenges" of a day of social interaction and internal struggle and emotions. I wasn't completely sure what I was, but I was pretty sure I was suffering from what doctors would call social or maybe generalized anxiety. And with that came depression and sometimes hopelessness of ever changing and moving on. This went on for years--for as far back as I can remember--and it only seemed like it was getting worse, and I was never able to accept myself, I thought myself a failure of some sort. What had I or my parents done wrong in raising me? Why me?
When I found this book, I had been through several programs for anxiety that I had found and downloaded online--none of them helping much--and when I read the introduction, something about it clicked with me. It somehow subconsciously made sense and I knew that I had found something that might actually change the way I WAS, and unknowingly but much more importantly, change the way I viewed myself.
Over the next 8 months, I almost religiously followed the exercises in the book. I learned more about myself and the world around me in those eight months than I have in the past ten years, at least it feels that way.
To cut a long story short, I still have anxiety, but on a scale of 1-10 it is now a 2 where it was an 7 or an 8 before. Simply put, practicing mindfulness pulls the rug from under anything that bothers you in any way. It teaches you that it's ok to feel any emotion and think any thought because that is what is already here. It teaches you to accept those things, and in the process of doing that, those horrible horrible things lose their power over you, and you can begin to heal.
To anyone suffering from emotional pain of any sort, please let me be an example to you that you don't have to be controlled by these terrible feelings. Learn to accept them as they are, and they will go away by themselves.
This book is a great way to start. Please consider

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Stress-Free is the way to be 10 novembre 2014
Par Robert Sherman - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
One thing that most of us never realize is exactly how much stress can affect our bodies and our minds. We also never realize how much we can use our body and mind to combat stress. I have lived with stress for many, many years and I've just thought it was a part of living life. But, this book has changed the way I've thought about my own well-being. Stress is responsible for so many of the troubles, aches, and pains that we face during life, and it's important to get out of that "catastrophic" mindset to achieve a better understanding of life. I was never one for meditating before I got my hands on this book, but it certainly changed my mind. Mindfulness is such an important aspect of my life now that I am unsure how I lived without it beforehand.

Of course, while I love the mindfulness and meditation techniques provided in Full Catastrophe Living, I also enjoy a few all-natural treatments. I tried out Simple Natural Cures: Cheap & Effective Remedies for Everyday Common Ailments which is a book that lives up to its namesake. It's a simple exploration of several different ailments and numerous simple all-natural cures to counteract them. The cures range from herbs to "mind-body medication," and all of them really do work. If you find you can't will away a cold, just check out Simple Natural Cures. There is a plethora of treatments for a wide range of maladies, and I've found success with each and every one of them.

But, it all starts with the mindfulness I discovered by reading Full Catastrophe Living. If you constantly feel bogged down by your fast-paced life, then this is a book I'd certainly recommend. I know that my life has taken a drastic turn in the right direction and I am overjoyed about the results. Again, I just wish I had picked this book up earlier. I also wish I had picked up Simple Natural Cures earlier. I'm glad I have them now and I'm glad I'm living by the principles outlined in each book. I used to be a skeptic, but I have definitely been converted.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Still so relevant -- good update 14 octobre 2013
Par M. Wolf - Publié sur
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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A book that can change one's life if we try 24 février 2014
Par Roslyn Roth - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I am taking a course at Jupiter Medical Center in Jupiter Florida and this is required reading for the course. It goes along with our professor who has been teaching Mindfullness Living for 17 years and though I am 67 years of age this book has taught me a lot about living as we age. As a cancer survivor I really needed this book to help me cope with aging, realizing that I can't do as much as I could when I was younger and how to cope with aging parents and children who are married and in their early 40s and raising their own children. This book has taught me how to relax a little and breath deeply and think before I just jump to a conclusion about stressful matters in my life. One can always learn even when we are a senior and I would advise that any person young or old read this book as it will change their outlook on life. I purchased three extra copies to give to my daughter and two friends who I thought could take away some new life skills from this book.
