Tiny Mini Atomic Habits

This morning I started working on the Self-Mastery section of the Heroic Training program I'm taking part in. This week's lesson is a high level overview of Willpower, Habits, and Algorithms. This is my new Mini Tiny Atomic Habit - one word of writing for the blog each day. I've already blown through that goal. More on Atomic Mini Tiny Habits to come.

The Universe Experiencing Itself

"We are a way for the cosmos to know itself." - Carl Sagan We are here to experience this moment. And this one. And this one. No matter how similar to others, we have never experienced this moment before. Whether or not you can see, hear, feel, taste, touch, or think it - it's a different moment, and you are a different human (thank you Heraclitus ). Look for the newness of now, and now, and now. Contemplate how this can affect what you choose to do right here, right now. "We have not been here before." - John Astin ,  This Extraordinary Moment: Moving Beyond the Mind to Embrace the Miracle of What Is  (al)

One Moment at a Time

It's been repeated over and over and over again... and yet we (including this one) just don't get it. We may get it intellectually, but not emotionally. Our brain knows, but our heart doesn't. The truth is there, but we don't apply it. We see the finger, but don't look to the moon it is pointing to. Human beings are learners and planners. Nothing wrong with that. Rational, enlightened self-interest keeps us alive. But the constant focus on who we have been, what we have done, who we want to be, and what we want to do is killing us.
