Mindfulness allows us to spend more time…

“Mindfulness allows us to spend more time in eternity! ” (RP)

Quietness and stillness are the arches of the gateway to at-one-ment.

At-one-ment depends on no-self-ment. No-self is heaven, bliss, Nirvana. No-self is helped by mindfulness, which is really mind-quiet-ness, self-emptiness.

Mindfulness uses prompts – prayers, mantras, bells, alarm clocks.

At-one-ment in Oneness. There we rest in eternity.

Time starts again with the dualities to which we return in this ‘world’.

At-one-ment and this world of dualities, the Ten Thousand Things, are gateways to heaven in both states, both worlds. The two states, are the wings with which we soar blissfully in both worlds. Each is complementary to the other.

The heaven of at-one-ment and this world of dualities resolve into One as in;

The great Master Dogen said,

“To study the Buddha Way is to study the self,

to study the self is to forget the self, and

to forget the self is to be enlightened by the ten thousand things.”

To be enlightened by the ten thousand things is to recognize the unity of the Self and the ten thousand things, the One and the many.

Now I write, teach & coach mainly about interfaith as inter-spirituality - and how we can grow closer to our True Self. . As anyone who knows anything about IPF will realize my energy is curtailed - so I am concentrating primarily on 'inter-spirituality'. . In the past I would have said that: . 1) I run courses and give talks at conferences and in universities and colleges in the UK, China, USA, Canada, Scandinavia etc. . 2) I provide materials, outlines and lessons for Schools. . 3) My range of interests include personal development, learning and teaching, photography and film, the arts generally, spirituality and educational practice and theory. . 4) At the same time I continue developing the human-centred studies SunWALK PDS (People Development System) - a whole-person, high-achievement model for individuals, and for use in, NGOs, schools and other organizations. . 5) The key question that continues to animate me and my work remains, "What is it to be fully and positively human?" . Contact me via onesummit AT gmail DOT com (replace At with@ etc.). . All good wishes Roger (Dr Roger Prentice) . For those interested; My first degree is in English and Education. My masters is in Adult and Community Education. My doctorate presented a new holistic meta-model of education called SunWALK.
