mindfulness / self-realisation

Narrow Mind. Spacious Mind.

An enlightening exploration on the pros and cons of different states of mindfulness. Shared with big love and gratitude sublime.

Sophia's Children

nar·row-mind·ed. adjective.

“A person with a limited outlook who is unwilling to consider alternative ideas, perspectives or thoughts. An example of narrow minded is a person who has a strong political position and who will not even listen to debates or arguments from the other side.” ~ Yourdictionary.com

Hmm, yeah. I’m sure we’ve all been cornered (or had psychic vomit spewed on us) by that sort once or twice.

In contrast, Spacious Mind would be a sort of ‘open mindedness’, the opposite of Narrow Mindedness — at least contrasting the definition above, ya think?

In truth, both NarrowMind and Spacious Mind have their gifts, and both have their toxic shadow-sides.

We benefit from the gifts, and are often harmed by the toxic expression.

How can we access their gifts and lean away from or transform the toxic stuff?
