While maintaining mindfulness and conscious awareness of our Breath, can our experience with Nature be Witnessed as our Being and with our True Nature?

Perhaps, one of the most important questions we can ask ourselves and others--What is Happening--Physically, Mentally, Emotionally, Spiritually and Socially?

Being mindful is a goal and an outcome that allows us to fully experience ourselves and our relationships. What thoughts are on the mind? Recurring thoughts are seeking a solution? Is there a theme or core energy within the thought? Is the thought continuing to be raised because we have not completed “it”?

What does our mind tell us about Doing? Is a thought a creative response or reaction to an event, activity and personal challenge? Perhaps questioning can be described as being conscious and aware of our existence as human beings. Or, thoughts may be a personal demand we place on ourselves to be actively engaged, energized, and alive.

How does having our mind maintain a state of calm when balancing active or indulging thoughts while evaluating, analyzing, judging and interpreting activity from reactive associations and perceptions prevent us from health, restoration and healing? Behind every question is there an answer, possible solution or often just more questions? Is raising questions a form of avoidance? Are we preventing ourselves from being honest while living in an open mind and posing questions? A friend and colleague of mine stated that the understanding he experienced about his Being, when asking questions is – I AM! Perhaps, curiosity, while discovering the unknown is designed for opening up our human experience as we expand or extend our awareness, for appreciation and understanding origins of our life, and becoming unified with All that Is.

Descarte, one of our early philosophers stated: [link]“I exist therefore I am!” (Descartes phrases the conclusion of the argument as "that the proposition, I am, I exist, is necessarily true whenever it is put forward by me or conceived in my mind." (Meditation II.)

As a form of meditation, I have learned to calmly and fully breathe with every breath and, am discovering for myself or Being that we are ‘being’ breathed as we examine, discover and maintain an awareness of our ‘internal’ slower breath. Our Breath becomes the formulation of cellular development for our physical self or Being and can be a focus for responding to questions about life, health and relationships. As one of my meditation teachers stated: “Behind every question is the answer….”

Isn't learning about ourselves and studying our Mind a great adventure and experience, even beyond words or questions?

The Classroom Is Broken
Commented Feb 16, 2012 at 17:25:24 in Education
“Thank you for sharing your experience with these huge classes where everyone is to be programmed or given a refresher course or whatever, but this is not an attractive learning environmen­t without any interest in unifying with a teaching-l­earning experience so that everyone participat­ing benefits. Higher levels of awareness can be a goal and outcome for students and faculty in the classroom. Let's see if we can't join our true nature--re­member our earliest experience­s, and continue our journey to be more fully human and equipped to do meaningful work in our society to improve us-it. Perhaps too philosophi­cal, but frankly, most students aren't aware of how to have an honest-ope­n mind and expeience every moment as a new learning opportunit­y. And, everyone needs to slow down and smell the roses and enjoy learning and being alive.”

Classrooms can be the source of teamwork, cooperation, interaction and Mindfulness.
