Foi a primeira vez que o Google teve um Mestre Zen presente na sede da sua empresa em Silicon Valley. Thich Nhat Hanh facilitou durante uma tarde um workshop sobre Mindfulness (Atenção Plena) aos funcionários.
A Google quer assim encorajar mais saúde, felicidade, equilíbrio e reconhecer que as meditações Mindfulness são cruciais para a saúde mental e sucesso dos funcionários.
When we’re feeling unmotivated, it’s helpful to reconnect with our desire to contribute to and serve others. A great yogic exercise for doing this involves breathing into the energetic center in our bodies called the heart chakra, which is located in the heart area.
According to yoga, energy flows more freely through the heart chakra when we breathe into it and focus our attention on that area – energy flow where attention goes. When this happens, we deeply feel our sense of compassion toward others, and regain our desire to give to the world through our work.
Right now as you are reading this, breathe into the heart chakra, put your hands together at the level of your heart.Then, breathe deeply so that nourishing oxygen fills your upper chest area. Feel the warmth and openness in your heart area, and notice any tension melting away.
You can practice this exercise at your work, home, car, bus in a standing or sitting position.This is a powerful tecnique you can practice anywhere because it can be done in 1 or 2 minutes and then you can go back to your work or responsabilities.
Spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle teaches that we are living in times of accelerated consciousness. He says the group consciousness is rising now because it is only now that it is necessary for our survival.
We Are Awakening To Mindfulness
The mindfulness that Eckhart speaks of directs you to become aware of what your thoughts are and how they affect you. The subconscious mind runs old self descructive thoughts over and over again creating insanity of your own making.
When the mind is present in the current moment, when your thoughts are still, only then can you appreciate and enjoy the possibilities of living everyday in peace.
“We, as human beings are at a transitional stage of where we are becoming strongly aware of the pull back to the Source.” Eckhart Tolle
I love this philosophy to be in LIFE. I truly believe that living in a mindful way and accepting reality as it is can bring us a lot of peace. Living moment by moment fully aware is great. I have being applying as much as possible this concept and it’s really powerful to deal with stress and anger. It’s a process that takes time and it also takes true commitment.
I tend to do lots of things at the same time and that just makes me feel stressed and frustrated. Do you know what I’m talking about?
My intention is to practice mindfulness way of being daily as much as possible with all the challenges in the way.
It’s funny because it’s a very simple tecnique but in the other hand so challeging to apply even when we do simple things like having dinner. Are you really eating or thinking about the dinner tomorrow?
