Jon Kabat-Zinn: A Love Affair with Life Itself - Mindful
Hike in a secret place near a waterfall. Chat with strangers anywhere. Carry a small notebook everywhere and jot down dreams, inspiration, poetry, ideas, etc. I have found that over the years what I write, does happen. This whole concept could be a book! What a wonderful gift it would be to compile for the world!! GREAT ideas! Also, LOVE some good music to put you in the mood!!!! Thank you for this Tonya!
I'm going to print this list out and cut each item out. Then I'm placing them in a jar and picking a "prize" each day; doing something each day, like a fun daily task.

This is perfect! Thank you again! How can you write such magnificent posts? Seriously, no one has impressed me the way your blog has! I'm here from the Philippines halfway around the world but my biggest dream is to travel in style in Paris and live my life with passion and elegance. Your words deeply touch my heart. Please keep inspiring women to be their best, elegant self. I love this list! It is my new bucket list.
I know I won't finish it today, but that's okay, as it's a pleasure list - not a to do list. Today I went to a playground and swung on a swing.. It was exhilarating! I was 7 years old again, filled with excitement! Whatever kind of very smart thoughts you come up with, whatever kind of equations you have produced in your head, whatever kind of formulas you have invented, they are all just desperate attempts to understand the intelligence of that which is the source of creation. What you think is science is just a desperate attempt to understand the intelligence of the Creator.
What you call technology is just a measly imitation of the technologies of life that already exist. So what you think is human intelligence, the logical intelligence, is not comparable to the intelligence which is the basis of creation. If you are willing to become one with that intelligence which is the source of creation, then you are spiritual.
Generally, materialistic life is not in line with that intelligence. Is it wrong? Is it wrong to eat food, to wear clothes, to have a building to live in? Is it wrong to do this and that? That is not the point. If you make the side dish of life into the main dish, it is a foolish way to live; that is all. We build a home, we wear clothes, we eat food, we do everything because we want to live, and live totally. We not only want to live, we want to know life in its entirety. Not just the skin of life, we want to know the soul of life. If you are only eating the skin of life, it is an unintelligent way to exist.
If you think your existence is exclusive, if you think you are an exclusive creation, then this is what will happen: you will end up eating only the skin of life, never the fruit. Spiritual process is to eat the fruit of life, the juice of life, the core of life. We not only want to taste it, we want to know and experience it in its entirety, in its full depth and breadth, in its utmost profoundness. So spiritual process is not a divorce from life; spiritual process is an irrevocable love affair with life. Why is it needed? No human being would consciously want to be a fool. Even one who fools around does it to show how smart he is.
But if you think that you are an exclusive piece of creation, if you think, feel, and experience life as if you are alone in this existence, if your experience of life is not of union but of divorce from the existence, then your so-called intellect works against you.

It once happened, just after the French revolution. Because they had made the machine, they had to use it as often as possible. Wherever they saw a head, they felt like taking it off.
So one day, three men were brought for execution — a lawyer, a priest, and an engineer. They put the lawyer down on the board with a hood over his head and pulled up the blade — it did not fall down. Technology failure, you know. According to the law, they had to kill him instantly; but now they had put him through the torture of waiting there and it did not happen, which meant tomorrow he might sue them — so they let him go. They put the priest on the board and pulled, again nothing happened. They thought this must be divine intervention and let him go.
The engineer chose to go to the execution without a hood.

This is how human intellect is working right now. We are doing so-called brilliant things which are going to destroy our life. How can you call these things brilliant when they are taking away the very earth on which we stand? You have heard of the famous Panchatantra story where a woodcutter is sitting on the other end of the branch, sawing it off, not understanding that when he is successful, he will fall.
This is how our intelligence works right now. In , when I was at the World Economic Forum, the recession had just hit the western part of the world and people were in a depressed condition. I am not going to philosophize with you but I want you to understand this: we have created an economic structure on the planet which is such that, if it does not work, you will be depressed.

If it works, we will be damned because of the way we have structured it. So this is the way our intelligence is working. This is a distortion from the intelligence of that which is the source of creation within us and in everything. Just in everything that you touch — the food that you eat, the air that you breathe, the earth that you walk upon, and the very space in which we exist — the hand of the Creator is obvious for someone who pays enough attention to it.
