While you're here... we've included snippet from a recent edition of our "Meditation Weekly" newsletter with Jay Michaelson.
One of the problems I’ve always had with mindful speech (also known as “guarding the tongue” in my Jewish tradition, and as “right speech” in my Buddhist one) is that refraining from saying what I really feel can feel like repression. And I don’t like repression. It’s not healthy to bottle these feelings inside, I tell myself. If I don’t express them, I’m going to boil over!
BS. All of that verbiage is what meditators call “story.” Maybe it’s true, maybe it isn’t, but the fact that I can construct some narrative about it is actually pretty irrelevant. Actually, there’s no kettle boiling over, or balloon about to burst. Those are just images and stories that I’m layering on top of what’s happening.
Alternative stories are available. First, there’s a big difference between not expressing your feelings in words, and repressing them. If something someone said is making you angry, fine – feel the anger. Accept it. Maybe even befriend it. But don’t hand it the microphone. You can fully affirm and acknowledge your fear, hurt, or anger without necessarily broadcasting it in a comment for hundreds of people to read.
Second, instead of focusing on feelings of restraint, repression, and resentment – which, you may notice, tends to increase those feelings – consider turning the attention to the opposite: freedom. Not clicking “post” is, after all, an expression of your own freedom. I’m not like an animal (or young child) that has to respond according to its conditioning. I’m not a robot either. I’m a person, and I have a degree of freedom in how I respond.
And that freedom feels great. Sure, it feels good to express anger; that’s human nature. But it also feels good to rise above it. That, too, is human nature – an expression of the best we have to offer as a species, in contrast to the dirty, nasty politics that’s so widespread today.
It takes some practice to appreciate the flavor of freedom. It’s more subtle than the rawness of revenge, and takes some getting used to. And again, I’m far, far, far from perfect in this regard.
But mindfulness is a capacity of mind that can be directed, as you gain facility with it, and turning it toward the feelings of freedom in online silence, rather than the feelings of restraint, is immensely rewarding. Really, it feels terrific. And it’s saved me a ton of unnecessary suffering.
Practice mindfulness in meditation, and apply it online. See if it works for you. And let us know how it goes – that is, if you check in and it feels good to do so!

This app never fails to improve my life and my mood.
After several tries with apps... Headspace (which granted helped me) Calm (Nice running water sounds to sleep too) Breethe (I don’t even remember) I found 10% happier... for skeptics. I am not a skeptic... but the way Dan approaches meditation... makes me laugh. I LOVE the genuineness of him... and through him, he has found all these teachers that are real. No frills... no fake calming voices or stories... real meditation teachers with lifetimes behind them of wisdom. And Dan... I admire him so much... because on a spiritual level... he is being a REAL REPORTER. The way reporters are supposed to report... not on an agenda, but on something so worthwhile to the human family... and he genuinely loves and investigates this... and through him I/we learn... and what a service.
In just a few weeks I have noticed a difference in my brain. Less reactive. More able to just notice moments... in short... I’m happier. I love doing a meditation 3 times a day. I’m not saying this is my only reason for being happier. But its probably just 10% of my total happier state lately. Worth the money? Yes. It was worth it from the first moment when Joseph Goldstein changed my life and mind in his interviews. Very thankful and impressed with the content and genuineness. It makes me laugh... and learn... and be calm and stable.
Find the time to listen to yourself. It’s worth it.
After 1 week, I am sold. Simply taking a few minutes out of my day to reflect and focus my thoughts has made for an interesting experience. When I first started, I couldn’t see past the restlessness I felt inside; I found myself focusing too deeply on the back and forth rocking sensation I felt as my heart beat, and was surprised by how much motion was still occurring beyond my control as I intentionally attempted to be still and clear my mind. Today, I am finding myself more aware of many other sensations going on inside me — the rocking motion, I can still feel but only as I focus my awareness on my heart beating instead of my nostrils flaring or my wandering thoughts. I’ve been so impressed with meditation, I’ve convinced my wife to give it a try as well, and now we both plan time before bed to be guided through the basics of meditation. Now she’s hooked as well! I know this is only the beginning, but I’m very excited to see where this leads. If I can feel this way after only a week, I can only assume the benefits of making it a regular practice. So very glad I was introduced to this app, and I highly recommended it!
