Installing a new mindset takes time and diligence
It is becoming quite apparent that the old mindset built upon survival instincts and driven by insecurity fears has reached its dead end. Fortunately the brain turns out to be more able to be rearranged ("rewired") than scientists previously believed. Many wisdom traditions have known for centuries that regular mindfulness practices can, over time, result in dramatic shift in consciousness. Our rapidly paced world makes it a challenge to devote the necessary time and energy toward attentioning our selves (and supporting others) in this manner
Yet we are essentially left with no other choice. We human beings must learn and embody the wisdom of mindfulness practices within the next few generations or be supplanted by technological creations designed to exist without devouring or destroying the planet. Fortunately we posses some vital qualities that make transcending old ways of operating quite possible. The most important ones to exercise in this effort are conscious awareness and free will or choice. Instead of living life limited by beliefs and stories of who we think we and others are, all of which are based in the past, we can learn to direct attention and awareness to present moment experience. Instead of wasting enormous amounts of energy trying to avoid, create, or manage feelings and judgement, we can learn to step outside of the insanity and have compassion for the suffering mind. Instead of fearing the imperfections of our bodies we can learn to access them more deeply and discover the infinite flow of gifts offered to us from the mysterious life energy coursing through all.
