72. The Heart Needs No Distractions

Yes, we try to fix it all … with a little prescribed mindfulness or meditation, perhaps.

But usually we fall by the wayside …

We end up ‘fixing’ only our sense of being swept away by life’s storms, whirl winds – whatever they are.

But we are still swept away … every day …

So we continue to fix by continuing to escape:

Whatever feels like it is too strong for us to control and brings us out of balance all the time – screaming kids or a screaming boss.

The unfairness of life. Dreams unfulfilled. Whatever bugs us, all in one big … knot.

Usually, though, we end up ‘fixing’ all this … mess … by numbing our minds, and thus our hearts.

We zoom straight in on the distractions that make life kind of okay:

TV, Internet, sex, alcohol, some sports …

Compensations …

Some of it is necessary – some times … some of it can be good … in small doses – all of it is numbing our minds and hearts if used without mind to it or heart in it.
