Life is Short

quote [ Life is short, as everyone knows. When I was a kid I used to wonder about this. Is life actually short, or are we really complaining about its finiteness? Would we be just as likely to feel life was short if we lived 10 times as long?

Since there didn't seem any way to answer this question, I stopped wondering about it. Then I had kids. That gave me a way to answer the question, and the answer is that life actually is short. ]

I came across this the day before Chadwick died so it was still rumbling around in my head when I read it.

The mindfulness conspiracy

quote [ Mindfulness practices do not permit critique or debate of what might be unjust, culturally toxic or environmentally destructive. Rather, the mindful imperative to ?accept things as they are? while practising ?nonjudgmental, present moment awareness? acts as a social anesthesia, preserving the status quo. ]

A long read for stating the obvious. See also The Faux Revolution of Mindfulness (thumb source) and Is mindfulness making us ill?
