If you are still breathing there is more right with you than wrong with you; no matter what is wrong with you
- Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn
Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn is one of the most inspiring speakers I have ever heard. In his quiet, gentle voice he tries to open up your wisdom to something much higher and nobler than the mundane issues we deal with daily. One of his famous statements, that is quoted above is so on the dot if you really think about it. The precision of the chemical and physiological processes that keep us alive , whether it be the level of blood sugar, pH value, cytoplasmic constitution, blood circulation, is astounding. But Dr. Kabat-Zinn always tries to point to a much higher truth, that which is incomprehensible to the human intellect but that which can transform lives and not just make one feel better or relaxed. As he himself says “mindfullness is not a dime store relaxation technique”. I would like to pay my tribute to Dr. Kabat-Zinn by featuring one his brilliant expositions of the absolute truth. In this brief 2 minute video he lays out the whole message of Vedanta, Buddha, Jesus Christ and all the other ancient sages in the breathtaking fashion that only he can expound in. Thank you Dr. Kabat-Zinn for being a spiritual mentor to me. Hope I get to meet you one day. Namaste.
