Cognitive flexibility is understood as the ability to react in a adequate way (by coming up with ad hoc cognitive strategies) to new and unexpected situations.
The central Buddhist notion of equanimity is very well reflected in cognitive flexibility, if one imagines to take equanimity into practice :-)
Being helpful and adequate whatever the situation..

visiting Eleusis

Looking back at a wonderful visit at Eleusis the first days of January. Although the weather was grey and the air was cold, it was very nice to be there and to see, discuss, sense and embrace the potential of the place. I am glad to have been of any help on the on going work. It was nice to feel so connected and to meet our very nice neighbour, Tamuly Anette!

I did also very much apreciate the atmosphere to study and the possibility…

Hi Mirjam, thank you, it is nice to catch up and feels good to be part of this.

I hope to see you at Eleusis one of these days when I can get over there!

Warm regards, Mark.

Dear Mirjam

it was nice meeting you at "Oasis of Long Life" the other day. I wish you all the best for your forthcoming exam. We shall certainly meet again since I live so close to Eleusis! A bientôt!

Hi Mirjam, thanks very much for your friend request, much appreciated. I read of your recent car journey with Dharmavidya and Jnanamati and remembered back to my recent time in their company.

I am planning to visit Eleusis around June and July next year, maybe we will meet there or at another gathering somewhere. best wishes  Rob

En l'absence de Darmavidya, j'ai - en ma qualité de voisine et d'amie - le privilège de m'occuper (un peu) de Tara, la petite chatte. C'est un bonheur  de la voir me faire la fête chaque fois que je me rends à Eleusis: elle s'étire, se roule sur le dos au soleil ou saute sur mes genoux. J'ignore si elle a profité de l'enseignement du maître des lieux, mais j'ai comme l'impression qu'elle me donne une belle leçon de sagesse: elle…

At the moment I am feeling very sad for the state of the planet. As I write the great forests are being consumed by fire, both the tropical forest in Brazil and the tundra forest in Russia. The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue
