"Amor Fati" - Embrace Your Fate It is another beautiful day, and we are proud to announce our latest Casa DeConfidence Podcast release, featuring the one and only Becky Schmooke of Becky's Mindful Kitchen! This was such a fun visit. I loved chatting laughing and going deep in our conversation with Becky. She opened up about her eating disorder and how she is turning her mess into a message that helps others. Becky lives in a house she and her firefighter husband build. They have three daughters, two dogs, dairy goats, and chickens (50 of them to be exact). Becky is a believer that the kitchen represents a place to gather, share stories, create memories, and learn lessons that go far beyond cooking. With this in mind, Becky leads a variety of events from treehouse birthday parties to virtual cooking classes, as well as mindful leadership workshops. Throughout it all, Becky blends stoic philosophy with modern mindfulness to create a practical guide for living with integrity, gratitude, and good spirits. I do hope that you will tune in for this incredible episode! We look forward to hearing your thoughts, so please let us know what you think on social media!Want to get cooking?

Madiha Saeed is on a mission as the Holistic Mom to help children live healthier, happier, more mindful lives. Learn about the inflammation epidemic that is afflicting children today and what we as parents can do to help our children make more rational, healthy decisions by choosing nutrient-rich foods, focusing on gratitude and optimism, and creating a home environment where they can thrive. [0:40] What can we do as parents to raise mindful and resilient children with a combination of functional medicine and parenting? That's the question that Madiha's new book tries to answer. [1:25] Because of widespread chronic inflammation, children are unable to make rational decisions today which are resulting in a number of societal issues. [3:10] Madiha's mission began after seeing her newborn child struggle to simply breathe. She started her journey of self-healing and put those lessons into practice to help her children as well. [5:35] Chronic disease has quadrupled amongst children since the 1960s. Now 1 out of 2 American children has a chronic health condition. By 2025, the projection is that 80% of children will be diagnosed with a chronic health condition. ADHD has increased 167% and by current projections 1 in 4 children will be diagnosed with autism by 2033. [8:35] By understanding the why and the what, we can understand the root cause of suffering, which is that our children are living unbalanced lives. The decisions children make every day are determined by their brain, and studies have shown that inflammation reduces the connection between the prefrontal cortex and amygdala, both of which are needed to make rational decisions. [10:30] During a research study, they found that children with behavioral issues had high levels of key inflammatory markers. Inflammation can impact babies in the womb. Society lives unbalanced lives and the chronic inflammation that comes as a result is passed from mother to child. [12:30] Endocrine disruptors have been found to be closely linked to inflammation, hormone imbalances, and gender confusion that we are seeing now. Medications that were commonly prescribed to pregnant women in the past decades are being found to have multi-generational impacts and increased suffering. [16:10] There are thousands of chemicals that are released on a regular basis and we have no idea what their long-term impacts are. BPA is a common culprit that is found in most plastics, including baby bottles. [18:00] We need to be more mindful of what is going into our children's bodies and what they are wearing. As parents, we need to empower our children to make positive changes to their daily lifestyles and improve the future. [21:00] Our consumer choices matter. Science has proven that gratitude and optimism strengthen the link between the prefrontal cortex and the amygdala and improves overall health and wellbeing. [22:15] When a child has a chronic health condition, it can become hard to focus on anything else, but if you can shift the focus to the lessons they can learn and what is going right in their lives, it can help them optimize their brain, body, and health simply by reducing the overall stress level. [23:20] Devices and social media are addicting for children. We need to incorporate stress management practices like nature and physical play to balance out their daily routine. [24:55] There is a direct connection between our gut and our brain. The microbiome is vital to helping a child's brain develop fully and reduce inflammation. Nutrients regulate every single chemical reaction in a child's body. [26:25] Madiha uses a diet framework that starts with vegetables, proteins, and healthy fats. Make it easy and fun for your children to eat healthy food and teach them at a young age how it helps them keep their hormones in balance. [28:10] During the pandemic, diabetes has doubled in children. [28:55] Unfortunately, children today are deficient in a number of nutrients, and this causes a cascade of health issues. Madiha typically begins supplementing with vitamin D, fish oil, and probiotics. [32:10] The more kids can enjoy the process and participate in creating the healthy food they need, the more they will consume. [33:30] Mindfulness shows us how best to respond at many different levels at once. It allows children to have the perspective they need to live a healthy life. [35:20] The Holistic Rx is meant for anyone taking care of children who wants direction on how to live a mindful and healthy life. It centers around the child's health and diet, and how to help them recover from inflammation, insulin resistance, and more.

In today's episode, we discuss and meditate on how to sit with desire, and why we would even want to bring mindfulness into moments of craving. Desire couldn't be any more natural, we all seek pleasure, and we all want to satisfy our cravings. And while there's nothing wrong with that, observing, understanding, and working with our desires can be so important to living a happy, healthy life. So I hope you enjoy this meditation and if you do please rate, review, share. Requests? Comments? Questions? Reach out @lillybalch or find me at www.lillybalch.com Music by Brian Eno- New Space Music
All of the teachingsare met within this zazen:pure meditation!* * *In the last segment we ended with Keizan's discussion of the Precepts, the true ones that go beyond mental characterization. These are the manifest Precepts, that do not depend upon our practice. They are natural, and universal. Such constructions as, “Do not kill,” “Do not steal,” and “Do not lie” become statements of the truth — that actually, the universe that gives us birth is that which actually ends life, and we cannot even own anything, let alone steal it. We cannot actually tell the truth, no matter how erudite, or glib, our speech. These, of course, are absolutist views of the Precepts, which also have relative meaning. In this segment we will continue with what the master says about the remaining two “aspects of spiritual training” he mentions. Beginning with mindfulness:“Mindfulness” is the observing that there is nothing that is in excess. When seated in pure meditation, we let go of “body and mind,” abandon “delusion and enlightenment.” We are unchanging, immovable, unwillful, impervious. We are like a simpleton or a legless man. We are like a mountain or an ocean: no trace of “movement versus stillness” has yet arisen. When mindful, there is no fixed state of things. Short and sweet, but comprehensive. Reminds again of Hsinshinming, “The Way is perfect like vast space — nothing lacking, nothing in excess.” Compare with the modern take on mindfulness, from the pop meditation of the same name, meaning “being in the moment.” In our anxiety- and uncertainty-ridden society, just being able to be in the moment for a moment or two, rather than obsessively ruminating over the past, or planning for the future, is certainly welcome. However, it does not begin to answer the question, Mindful of what? Keizan's abbreviated answer is meant to focus like a laser on one key point, but we would be prone to include mindfulness of the Four Noble truths and other central teachings of Buddha. However, his main point here is that we should also not obsess over these teachings, as such. After all, they are only pointing at the reality in front of our face. Which has nothing extra, nothing truly separate, in mokurai, the complementarity of movement and stillness. He takes a similarly blunt approach to defining wise discernment:“Wise discernment” is being selective within enlightened awareness. When seated in pure meditation, what is intellectually known spontaneously vanishes and self-consciousness is discarded. Your whole being's Eye of Discernment possesses no “specialized insight”: It clearly sees Buddha Nature and is, from the first, not deluded.Keizan uses this kind of expression, “from the first,” repeatedly. We will find Hakuin Zenji starting off his Song of Zazen with “From the beginning…” This captures the meaning of “refuge” in Zen — having the connotation of returning to the safe place from which we originated. It has all been like a bad dream, but we are the authors of that dream, and when we wake up, everything will be okay with us. The rest of the baggage that we carry with us — delusion, and the intellectual ramblings and self-centered striving that result — fall away. The emphasis on spontaneity means that this is not something we can do intentionally, but it can happen. Before launching into another litany of practical things like seeking a “good, quiet place,” a thick cushion, avoiding “mist, smoke, or fog” and “rain and dew,” keeping “your sitting place neat and clean,” et cetera, and repeating some of the prior instructions, he delves again into more specifically mental, or better, counter-mental, techniques:This is the technique for meditating: Let go of, and abandon, awareness of thoughts; put to rest looking at mental fancies and images. Do not devise some notion of what “realizing Buddha-hood” is. Do not let right and wrong control you. Act as if you were saving your head which was ablaze!Here we are hearing echoes of Dogen, for sure. Again, the “hair-on-fire” expression may have been a common trope in this period, much as it is currently. The “…give up even the idea of becoming a Buddha” is, again, pure Dogen. It begins to look like this document may have been a result of someone taking notes, or writing down a spontaneous talk given by Keizan Zenji to an audience. It has that kind of character, of jumping from point to point, and being careful to remember and transmit some of the golden nuggets he had inherited from the newly-developing legacy of Dogen's lineage. Many of the passages sound like direct quotes, perhaps paraphrased, and morphed in translation, from various of Dogen's written teachings, which have a more structured feel. Keizan is either quoting or channeling Dogen's Jijuyu Zammai when he says:Do not get involved with the burning of incense, the making of bows, the reciting of the Buddha's name, the undergoing of some penitential ritual, the reading of Scriptures, the holding on to a daily work schedule: just sitting, without “doing” anything, is what you should aim at above all.This does not strike me as the kind of advice and encouragement to a kind of indolence that the parents of the young monks in Keizan's charge would approve. But with a couple of notable exceptions, it seem lifted verbatim from his predecessor. It is notable that in the first line to Jijuyu Zammai, “practice” is the only thing that Dogen mentions and does not repeat in the following two lines, which seem to refute the first. Don't take my word for it, check it out. Practice transcends the relative, absolute, and even the nondual Buddha Way, whereas “…delusion and realization…birth and death…buddhas and sentient beings,” the other binaries recited as examples, apparently do not. “Practice, practice, practice!” sayeth the Preacher.Next, another whiplash:As a general practice, when doing seated meditation, you should put on your kesa. (Remove it in the dark before dawn and at dusk, as you come out of the meditation state.) Do not omit this.He segues instantly from recommending against following traditional protocols to insisting on wearing the formal robe. The kesa, for the uninitiated, is the quilt-like outer robe, which is typically donned at the beginning of zazen, and removed after. This seeming contradiction may be resolved by a sober analysis of what else the average monk would have available to wear, other than the robe, which can hide a lot of sins. The three undergarments in usage today — the juban, or undershirt, with some sort of boxer shorts; and the kimono and koromo, the Japanese and Chinese under-robes, respectively; may not have been universally in vogue. We do have to keep up appearances, to some degree.There are some deep-dive details noted in the text that may be of importance to scholars and historians, another reason I suspect that this may have been recorded from a live presentation in the zendo, or lecture hall. Before going into boilerplate instructions for the posture, one mention by the master I think is useful to clarify some confusion that arises yet today:Whilst on your mat… do not always sustain the cross-legged, “lotus” sitting position; range from a half-lotus position to, later, sitting with your feet under your spine. This is the method of sitting of the Buddhas and Ancestors: sometimes to do full lotus, sometimes half-lotus.This is different from Dogen's written record, but may have been characteristic of his live instructions. Remember that Keizan was born only 15 years after Dogen's demise, so his teachers had lived with and learned from the great founder in person. Note the admonition, more than a mere suggestion, to “not always sustain the cross-legged” position. This will come as a relief to many contemporary practitioners, who have been told that they must assume the “correct” posture, and heaven forfend if you should move. Buddha moved. I guaran-damn-tee you, Buddha moved.We recommend rotating through the various postures — over time, not continuously — to develop the requisite flexibility in the lower body, hips, knees, legs and ankles. Also sitting on a chair, including the ergonomic kind. Zen is always contemporary, as Matsuoka Roshi insisted. There is nothing magical in the lotus posture. It is, simply, more stable than the others, like the proverbial three-legged stool. What follows is familiar enough to those who follow Soto Zen praxis that we can skip it here. However, there are a couple of details that I think worth retelling, separated by more details in the text (italics mine):Next, your should settle down in your sitting placed by swaying your body seven or eight times in ever smaller movements, then steadily sitting erect.When you wish to arise from meditation, first, place your hands respectfully on your knees and sway your body seven or eight times in ever larger movements.This is a small, but not insignificant, improvement over the written instructions in Fukanzazengi, as the “ever smaller” movements in the beginning help us to find the central “sweet spot” in the posture, where we come into equilibrium, or equipoise, with gravity, the most efficient and effortless proprioception. The “ever larger” pendulum moves at the end of the session likewise loosen the musculature, especially the lotus-position base, allowing us to rise without strain. This set of moves is most often forgotten by many contemporaries, but makes the approach to zazen more like any other physical exercise.Keizan goes on to give similar instructions when rising and beginning walking meditation, when sleepy, and for breathing while walking, which he treats as an antidote to sleepiness, none of which I recall from Dogen's documentation. Doesn't mean they weren't there, but Keizan's emphasis does seem to be on some other syllables. Included in the advice for kinhin is the nugget:Although you are walking, do it as though you are not walking: be calm and tranquil, and do not thrash your body about.The last thing anyone who has done kinhin would associate with it, I think, is thrashing your body about. This rather comic image may reflect the young age at which some of the young monks, or unsui, would be sent to the monastery. Walking as if you are not walking is a wonderful idea. Matsuoka Roshi would often say, “Put your whole self into the walking” or “into the sitting. If you can put your whole self into this, you will gain the power to put your whole self into everything you do, and will become the strongest person in the world.” Today we might say that you will become the best version of yourself.I often say that zazen is like “falling asleep staying awake.” In other words, like drifting off to sleep, our natural, busy monkey mind preoccupations tamp down to a dull roar, we begin to lose sensory awareness, maybe even experience sudden vertigo, and in general, lose the turgor associated with normal awakeness and anxiety. But while this process sets in, we stay awake and observe it rather scientifically. Keizan seems to concur, offering some evasive maneuvers to fight off sleep:If drowsiness persists, you should make a vow, saying, “Because my karmic habits are already heavy, I am now shrouded in sleep. When will I awaken from my dark and confused wandering in the mind? I pray that the Buddhas and Ancestors will confer their great compassion on me and remove my dark and heavy suffering.”I suspect that these techniques address what we might recognize as symptoms of sleep deprivation. The dawn-to-dusk design of retreats, and especially the time-honored tradition of sitting up all night on occasion, surely are meant to challenge the circadian rhythm, with notably direct effects on perception. The entreaties to Buddhas and Ancestors we might consider extraneous to this problem, but they tend to remind us that all of our lineage went through privations and self-discipline at least as trying as those we face, in the relative comfort of an environment fueled by electricity and fossil fuels, as well as indoor plumbing. We got no room to complain about our “dark and heavy suffering.”Interestingly for a Soto Zen priest, Keizan also recommends that “If your thoughts are still not at rest, you should call to mind some short koan which your Master has given you to guide you, such as ‘What is It that comes like this?,' ‘A dog's not having Buddha Nature,' ‘Ummon's Mount Sumeru,' Joshu's oak tree,' for instance: ‘bland talk is what meets the need.” So koans were not eschewed entirely in early Soto Zen, even when doing zazen, but were considered relatively bland, not disturbing to equanimity. He also recommends focusing on death to calm the mind, “the great matter where your breathing comes to an end and your eyes close forever.” Or, “focus on the ‘not-yet-born state' before a single thought has arisen. In modern parlance, neither of these images would be considered especially calming. But then he predicts that even “when you are doing your daily activities, you will suddenly give rise to the two types of ‘emptiness' — that of there being no personal self and of there being no permanent self in phenomena — and your scattered thoughts will, without fail, lose their force. Again, seemingly not very soothing.In closing, he brings it home: “Then, what is right before your eyes will be your koan.” Which he rephrases, “At that moment, what the koan is is ‘right before your eyes.'” In between he notes, “You and it will not be ‘two things going around each other.'” Again, the great master seems to be throwing out, at random, all the fingers pointing at the moon that he can muster, in the hopes that one will stick. He ends with “Wholeheartedly do I pray for this; with all my heart do I so pray.” Can I get an amen?* * *Elliston Roshi is guiding teacher of the Atlanta Soto Zen Center and abbot of the Silent Thunder Order.

Every time we get stuck we have a choice. Get unstuck or stay stuck. It's really as simple as that. But, as humans, we complicate things. And so, rather than getting unstuck, we choose to stay stuck for any number of reasons. But the choice to get unstuck always exists. Always. Tune in to this week's Emotionally Equipped podcast where I share how I nipped a stuck moment in the bud, and how you can, too. www.shiragura.com

In this episode, we explore attachment and some simple ways to practice non-attachment. The concept of non-attachment is often misunderstood. For example, we still love people even while practicing non-attachment. We still have homes, jobs, and goals even as we lesson our attachment. Non-attachment does not mean being separated from people or things, but changing the way we relate to them. Lessened worry and anxiety, peace of mind, and more enjoyment are only a few of the innumerable benefits that come from non-attachment, Benefits of non-attachment Less worry Less anxiety Greater enjoyment in relationships Contentment and satisfaction Better mood Less stress A more peaceful mind What is attachment? Attachment arises from: Focusing on an object we find desirable, dwelling on it with inappropriate attention until our mind becomes glued to it, such that we feel we can't be happy without it. Attachment is not desire. We desire many things in a positive, non-attached way, like brushing our teeth. What attachment involves is “sticky desire.” This type of desire is like sticking duct tape to a hairy arm; when it is ripped away it is VERY painful (like when we are ripped away from our object of attachment). We experience attachment to: Things Status People Relationships Children Past Future Situations in the present being other than they are And much more… Cut down the forest of craving, not the real tree; the forest of craving breeds danger (of rebirth). Cut down the forest of craving as well as its undergrowth and be free from craving. So long as craving of man for woman is not cut down and the slightest trace of it remains, so long is his mind in bondage as the calf is bound to its mother. —Buddha, The Dhammapada References with links Buddha.

A follow-up to his first #raisingkids book, this book is a beautiful and practical toolkit with over 80 activities to introduce mindfulness onto the ‘raising kids journey'.

This seems to be more and more important in a world that is not only constantly changing, but also filled with distractions, instant gratification, unrealistic ideas of happiness and unhealthy role models.

This week, we're talking all about knowledge. We start off by comparing our upbringings and how our performances in school shaped how we saw ourselves. For Anna, being the only person in her overachieving family with a learning disability automatically made her ‘the dumb one,' and Nina skated by with her memorization skills (but don't ask her to do long division now. That's why we have calculators on our phones). After college and throughout adulthood, we realized that knowledge is so much more than report cards and what novels are sitting on our bookshelves. In this episode, we dig into how fear of failure or coming across as unknowledgeable can hold us back from learning about the world and ourselves. We also discuss how alternative learning methods and schools are paving the way for people like little Anna and Nina to excel. If you're struggling with the idea that you're not smart, investigate where that feeling is coming from, and focus your attention on your natural talents and areas where you thrive. Self-knowledge requires constant updates, and there's no pop quiz to determine if you're passing or failing. Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, or on your favorite podcast platform. Topics Covered:Overcoming fear and judgment when it comes to learningDisparities in the U.S. education systemLearning disabilities in school and beyondWorking through feelings of not being intelligent enoughSeeking out teachers and learning styles that work for youThe value of self-knowledgeResources Mentioned:The Montessori MethodSpecial Offer: Listeners get two weeks of our membership platform free by going to The SoulUnity website and using the How to Be Human option in the dropdown.Follow Us:How to Be HumanThe SoulUnityInstagram

We originally recorded this song in March of 2020. Now, nearly two years later, we still think it's important to wash our hands thoroughly and mindfully, so we're re-releasing this song as a tool for health and kindness inside and out. Whether you're learning it for the first time, or listening again, we hope you enjoy this song.What if instead of singing Happy Birthday each time we wash our hands, we sing a song that wishes ourselves and our world safety, health, peace, and kindness.We recorded a 20 second hand washing song to sing every time we wash our hands. This song was inspired by the ancient practice of loving kindness or metta meditation. There's a lot of modern research that says loving kindness is a powerful tool that increases the well-being of both kids and adults.Special thanks to Kurt Gunn for the vocals and guitar.

In this episode we look at Right Concentration, one part of the Noble Eightfold Path. In general, concentration in meditation is single-pointedness on the object of meditation. Like a laser, concentration eliminates distraction. When one attains a state of single-pointed concentration a unique feeling of tranquility accompanies it. Thus, there are two features of concentration: unbroken attentiveness on an object and a feeling of peace that arises with this absorption. When training in concentration, this feeling makes you very clearly aware that your consciousness has become more subtle. It is a beautiful experience, but generally it doesn't happen every time you meditate. Enjoy it when it does! Right Concentration is a particular kind of one-pointedness. A sommelier tasting fine wine, a sniper taking aim—both act with superior concentration, but theirs cannot be characterized as Right Concentration.Buddha used the term “Samadhi” to describe the type of concentration he taught. It is exclusively one-pointedness on virtuous objects with the intention to raise the mind to a higher, more pure state of awareness. The ability to stay with a task without distraction improves study, work, sports, relationships…nearly everything. Buddha compared a mind untrained in concentration as like a fish taken out of water: it flaps about uncontrollably. Bhikku Bodhi said, “Such a distracted mind is also a deluded mind. Overwhelmed by worries and concerns, a constant prey to the defilements, it sees things only in fragments, distorted by the ripples of random thoughts. But the mind that has been trained in concentration, in contrast, can remain focused on its object without distraction. This freedom from distraction further induces a softness and serenity.” Wisdom arises from [spiritual] practice; Without practice it decays. Knowing this two-way path for gain and loss, Conduct yourself so that wisdom grows. (282)* -Buddha, The Dhammapada References and Links Buddha.The Dhammapada. Translated by Gil Fronsdale. (Kindle).

Last week I talked about finding mindfulness by taking action and this week I start off by telling you two ways that I took action and feel good as a result. Have you taken action recently on something that has been on your mind for weeks or even months? Today I'm going to share 5 ways to be mindful and bring more positivity into your world. As a result of your mindfulness, I believe you'll feel good and begin to increase your level of contentment.
