I spent part of my weekend reading a new book I got from the library.
As I was reading I became curious to the question: How can I be unmindful? I don’t mean to say how can I become dumbed down or absent brained but rather how can I be mindful but unfixed or empty-mindedness.
The book was describing a game of chess and one of the players was so fixed, so mindful of his Queen he completely missed how open his king was and lost. I saw this as a great metaphor for my life. I sometimes wonder if my focus at work or school is leaving me exposed to an attack… An attack on my experience that I will some how miss by being fixed and committed.
So I ask any one to answer and give me your thoughts. How can I be un-fixed in my mind?
