- a mindfulness experiment .
This is a lovely article with a very long link from Neuro-psychologist Rick Kausman. Rick has a great bi-monthly newsletter worth subscribing to.
This article claims we close down inside ourselves as we get older and become much less open and vulnerable than we were as kids. Trouble is, we stop visiting magical places inside ourselves (in my meditation experience these are real spaces full of richness) and learn to dishonour ourselves which leads straight to self doubt, confusion and unhappiness.
Go on, have a read and most importantly, try the thought experiment. I have and it adds a lot of ease and hope.
