I quite like this one coz it felt like if I did a workout and should only go at 90% but I went 110%, it’s a reminder to STEP back because the maximum benefits actually lie in the 90%.
The scripts this time come from another person whom I look up to, Jeff Warren
I bumped into him through the Calm app, and here is a background about him, but here’s a snapshot below:
“Jeff is a writer and a meditation instructor. His primary subject is the mind, whatever that is. He is the co-author, along with Dan Harris and Carlye Adler, of Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics, as well as the author of The Head Trip, a travel guide to sleeping, dreaming and waking consciousness. He has won awards for his writing about whales and psychedelics, which are never to be mixed, for obvious reasons. Jeff got serious about meditation in 2004, and has been studying with Buddhist teacher Shinzen Young since 2008. Jeff’s specialties as a guide – i.e., those things he has the most personal experience with – are obsessive writerly over-thinking, childish anger outbursts, dysregulated mood swings, high sensitivity emphatic-overwhelm, existential despair, and, lest he forget (forgetfulness! that’s another), ADD-style attention-hijacking. For all these reasons, his favourite meditative principle / intervention is equanimity. He can talk forever about equanimity, and frequently does, thus strategically introducing the challenge of sleepiness to all those who accidentally listen to him.”
Keen to set up my own Consciousness Explorer’s Club one day….
