Here is the latest talk from the San Rafael Meditation group with Rick Hanson. It is titled The Mind That Siezes and Suffers. More information on the San Rafael Mediation group can be found at http://www.rickhanson.net/teaching/meditation-group.
In this blog post I offer a few motivating reflections to help you stick to your virtues and good purposes:
- Reflect on the benefits to yourself of living from a virtue or purpose; do things to keep those benefits in mind (e.g., pictures of healthy people on the refrigerator, a list of reasons on a bathroom mirror for lightening up and not sweating the small stuff).
- Reflect on the benefits to others of living from a virtue or purpose; really try to have positive feelings about those benefits, not just a passing thought.
- Consider the costs to yourself and to others of not living from virtue or purpose.
- Allow yourself to feel appropriate remorse for not living from a virtue or purpose.
