Missing Mindfulness

There are several things I’ve known for years that I periodically have to be reminded of…painfully.  They are:

  1. If it’s urgent, it’s probably not spiritual – whatever the “it” may be.
  2. If it’s urgent and therefore not spiritual, run whatever I want to say or do by a person I trust to tell me the truth before I act.
  3. If such a person isn’t available, do nothing until one is.

The weather will close the guan today, even if it doesn’t keep me out of work.  That gives me extra time to consider this and other forgotten blueprints for mindfulness, a component of my martial arts life that I’ve apparently been missing….
