108 Ways

So,  what is with 108?  – why not 101?

The number 108 is significant for so many reasons.

Its associated with many mindful practices around the world, in many religions, and texts.

Traditionally, malas, or garlands of prayer beads, come as a string of 108 beads

Some believe there are 108 stages on the journey of the human soul, while others associate the possibility of enlightenment with taking only 108 breaths a day, while in deep meditation.

It is seen within Ayurveda and astronomy & there are also 108 double stitches on a baseball

It’s your abiity to fully appreciate and engage in a moment without comparing it to a past experience

So, why is this important? Because were all too stressed out! We have high blood pressure, depression, and all sorts of addictions. Plus with our smart phones and gadgets, we’re actually training our brain to micro-task, to flit from one thing to another in seconds, and usually not accomplishing much.

Least of all peace, which I’m sure you’d love to have more of in your life.

Mindulness is present-moment awareness without judgement

Really listen, when spoken to. Notice the smell & taste of your food.
