quotes that blow my mind

"a puppet's will  is only free as long as he loves his strings"

Nothing is free and many things in our brain and body are automatic.
It turns out that our brain plans things and does all sorts of things with out our ever knowing it. Also and this is interesting, our brain decides to say a certain word or do a certain thing like reach for a cup before we decide to. Yup! That is what I say! "wow!"

Why am I telling you this on this snowy morning?
Because, practicing mindfulness is what I want to master. mindfulness is freedom, yes?
