DescriptionExtract – First there is that intense yellow light of a winter sun shining outside. A sun that dazzles without warming. Then we discover the old man motionless. He turned away from his desk and the book he was studying: to think? To rest ? Meditate? Our eyes then slide to the right and notice the low door of the cellar. Then he is attracted by the spiral staircase. As he prepares to climb the first steps, he discovers the fire crackling in the hearth and a woman stoking the embers. He returns to the flight of the steps: but they lead only to darkness.
The painting is small, the place it depicts is dark, but one has the feeling of a vast space. It is the genius of Rembrandt, who makes our eyes travel in all dimensions. In width, from the left, from where the daylight shines, to the right, where the fire is fragile, almost derisory; the dialogue of a sun that lights without warming and a fire that warms without lighting; sun of reason and fire of passion, two ingredients for philosophizing? In height, with this spiral staircase that connects secret depths of the cellar and obscure mysteries of the floor. In depth, from the back of the painting where the philosopher sits to the circle of darkness that surrounds him. But the sense of space also comes from the subtle game between the unveiled and the hidden. What matters is what we imagine: on the other side of the window, behind the cellar door, at the top of the stairs. And the largest of these universes hidden from our eyes that have passed too quickly: the spirit of the philosopher, his inner world. Darkness and darkness, a little light, a little heat. And a spirit on the move. Is this what our interiority looks like?

To meditate is to stop

Stop doing, stir, fidget. Put yourself a little behind, stay away from the world.
At first, what we feel seems odd: there is emptiness (of action, distraction) and fullness (tumult of thoughts and sensations of which we are suddenly aware). There is what we miss: our landmarks and things to do; and, after a while, there is the appeasement that comes from this lack. Things do not happen as “outside”, where our mind is always attached to some object or project: to act, to think about a specific subject, to have his attention captured by a distraction.
In this apparent non-action of the meditative experience, it takes time to get used to, to see a little more clearly. As in the table. Like when you go from light to shade. We entered into ourselves, for real. It was very close to us, but we never went there. We were rather out in the open: in our time of unbridled solicitations and furious connections, our connection to ourselves often remains fallow. Abandoned interiority … the exteriorities are easier, and more marked. While the meditative experience is often a land without trails. In the room where the philosopher meditates, there is less light, so you have to open your eyes bigger. In ourselves too: there is less evidence and reassurance, so we have to open up the eyes of our minds more.
We thought, we hoped to find calm, emptiness. We often come across a big bazaar, noise, chaos. We yearned for clarity, we found confusion. Sometimes meditating exposes us to anguish, suffering, pain, and avoidance when we think about something else, moving about elsewhere.

Description : "Looking at Mindfulness collects classic and esoteric paintings, from Rembrandt to Hopper to Magritte, and offers a lucid commentary on the inner workings of each. André describes the dynamic on the canvas, and turns to the viewer's own reactions, exploring the connection between what we see and what we feel. Moving beyond the art on the page, André teaches us what it means to consider our surroundings, our daily interactions and obligations, and their effect on our inner well-being. The paintings are a visual and tangible first step to understanding mindfulness and the benefits of living in the moment. In practicing mindfulness, within ourselves and out in the world, each of us can make immediate, meaningful, and permanent changes in our well-being and the well-being of others" -- Amazon.com.

Description : Mindfulness opens us up to the possibility of being fully human as we are, and of expressing the humane in our way of being. Mindlessness de facto closes us up and denies us the fullness of our being alive. This book may on the surface appear to be merely another offering in the genre of daily readings. But deep within these 108 selections lie messages of profound wisdom in a contemporary and practical form that can lead to both healing and transformation. We so urgently need to rotate in consciousness in order to safeguard what precious sanity is available to us on this planet. How we carry ourselves will determine the direction the world takes because, in a very real way, we are the world we inhabit. Our world is continuously being shaped by our participation in everything around us and within us through mindfulness. This is the great work of awareness. Welcome to the threshold . . . to the fullness of arriving at your own door!

Description : Here’s a drug-free, side effect–free solution to common stress and mood problems—developed by two physicians. Millions of Americans suffer from mood problems and stress-related issues including anxiety, depression, insomnia, and trauma-induced emotions and behaviors; and most would prefer not to take medication for their conditions due to troublesome side effects, withdrawal symptoms, and disappointing success rates. Drs. Richard P. Brown and Patricia L. Gerbarg provide a drug-free alternative that works through a range of simple breathing techniques drawn from yoga, Buddhist meditation, the Chinese practice of qigong, Orthodox Christian monks, and other sources. These methods have been scientifically shown to be effective in alleviating specific stress and mood challenges such as anxiety, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and many others. The authors explain how breathing practices activate communication pathways between the mind and the body, positively impacting the brain and calming the stress response.

Description : Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect Facebook friends. It's little wonder, since she's had a fairly rough life. Her father left when she was a baby, her stepfather just died and her mother's almost given up - in fact, she's sent her to live with her grandmother in cold and sleepy Maine to 'keep Zara safe'. Zara doesn't think she's in danger; she thinks her mother just can't cope. Zara's wrong. The man she sees everywhere - the tall, creepy guy who points at her from the side of the road - is not a figment of her imagination. He's a pixie. But not the cute, sweet kind with little wings. Maine's got a whole assortment of unbelievable creatures. And they seem to need something - something from Zara . . .

Description : In the middle of the night in early April, 1994, Arsène, an eight-year old Rwandan boy, flees his village as shouts and gunshots draw near. Carrying only a battered suitcase of his father's, hastily packed with a few essential items by his grandmother--who along with the rest of his family and the entire village will be massacred that night--he runs into the wilderness and wanders alone and afraid through unspeakable horrors. Some years later, his story and that of a young writing teacher, Suzanne, converge. As a teenager adopted by a Parisian couple and enrolled in a private school, Arsène is prompted by her assignment to bring in a cherished family object, for which he chooses the battered family suitcase, and his story unfolds--first in painful increments and then in a flood of confession he can only reveal by dictation. Suzanne in turn is reeling from the death of her father and the loss of her own childhood home. The two find a deep, emotional connection that transcends race, history, and geography.
