Today: never stop learning and awakening. I just interviewed David Rome, pictured here at his #BoulderBookstore reading, about Focusing--how to work directly with sensations--fear, anger, passion--in the moment. Video coming to YouTube.com/waylonhlewis, subscribe free to get alert when up. David is one of my lifelong reference points for leadership, humor, wisdom and gentleness--as is my meditation instructor Frank Berliner, pictured here getting his book signed by David. Frank's also featured on my video series. #independentbookstores #focusing #trungpa #walkthetalkshow #elephantjournal 2d

  •   springnettles It's beautiful! 2d
  •   mysoulcandance_celisa I have fond childhood memories of post office boxes. I lived in country but my great grandmother had a p.o. Box in town at a very old post office and I was entranced by how "fancy" they were and I always wanted one. They looked like these. Hehe. 2d

Start saving up! #bmwi8 good to see the auto industry begin to move into closer harmony with reality. #amonthofnow 3d

We return home with roles switched--he's dogtired and I'm reinspired. Thank you, Red. #amonthofnow 4d

Tag #amonthofnow, @elephantjournal and @waylonlewis so we see it and we'll give out free gift subscriptions to our favorite mindful action or tip every Friday. Today: whenever I'm confused, depressed, angry...I take a moment to look at a view. Views dissolve fixed mind and remind us that life is but a dream. I did a video on this at YouTube/waylonhlewis #buddhadharma >>> yesterday I was in a great mood post-run through fall foliage, then had a meeting at Boulder's #stjulienhotel but was still grateful for the views :) too often developers in Boulder say--views don't matter, let us build higher. They have a point--density is a good thing. But open mind and pride in our natural locale has real value, too. #community #amonthofnow 6d

waylonlewis Hashtag conflict! There was another similar hashtag first so to respect their campaign we're stopping ours. It's been fun! We'll still award free yearlong subscriptions to readers! Big love! 2w
  •   jenniferswhite But good for you. 2w
  •   cindy_loohuu Aww bummer! I saw that account... But shouldn't we all be okay with any campaign that's trying to spread mindfulness to the masses? No matter who coined the hashtag?! 2w
  •   stacialowe66 Hmm yes, I like the idea of changing the hashtag. Perhaps we could focus on gratitude in general? ""If the only prayer you say in your life is "thank you," that would suffice."-Meister Eckhart 2w
  •   elizajduple Can always change it to 91 days of mindfulness? Also like @blanckj1 's #90daysofelephant suggestion... Eager to continue with this campaign! And also greedy for a subscription. ;) 2w
  •   meganarce915 I second the motion to create a new hashtag that focuses on gratitude. #90daysofmindful really got me excited, though. 2w
  •   mjerin1 Bummer!! I was having so much fun! Change the hashtag & let's start again!!!!! 2w
  •   waylonlewis Hey all I wanted to give it dome space 'cause the other hashtag lady was being a little weird or felt weird about it. All good! 2w

waylonlewis Today marks Day #6 of #elephantjournal 's #90daysofmindful -- jump in! It's a fun meaningful community experiment for you that's about sharing the good word beyond the choir to all those who may not yet give a care. >>> Photo share one yoga art organic eco kind meditation social-good thing you do or moment of the day and inspire others. Tag #90daysofmindful, @elephantjournal and @waylonlewis so we see it and we'll give out free yearlong elephant gift subscriptions to our favorite mindful action or tip every Friday. Today: meditate first thing in the morning, last thing at night. Sorts my mind for a busy, productive, drama-light day and makes it easy to really rest and renew at night instead of dreaming about work or relationship challenges. Instruction at your local Shambhala Center or in videos on elephant or YouTube (YouTube.com/waylonhlewis or search Pema or Trungpa)
>>> Good posture, relax, dedicate merit of day to all, find my breath, eyes open not blocking out world or life, notice thoughts and return attention gently to breath. It's about the present moment, not my self.
