How beautifully articulated. What an incredibly deep and original perspective.You are a thought leader and I suspect more people will lend an ear to those signals above the noise of our busy lives. @judyMartin8”

“Michael,
It's simple yet profound.. what you said here rings so true, " the hardest person to maintain such firm boundaries with is yourself." When I speak to those starting out in meditation, that gentle easing of ourselves back to focus on one thing at a time is the true beginning of mindfulness. The easing can be elegant and quite powerful. Enjoyed your post. @JudyMartin8”

“Arianna, Really enjoyed the poetic take on the well-being benefits of walking. The physical and psychological benefits are linked in so many ways. As a yoga teacher, we encourage any kind of movement with the breath that will bring people back to center, but movement on its own also breaks tension in the body, and gets the respiratory system going with more oxygen to the brain and the lymph system moving the toxins out of the body. If only more employers knew the benefits of the precious afternoon walk, we'd all be a lot happier and healthier at work. @Judymartin8”

“You bring up a great point. We often don't check out employee assistance programs until the 11th hour when something tragically goes wrong. It would be really smart to really take a look at your company's offerings at least once a year. Thanks for your comment.”

The Consciousness Project -- Hopeful Solutions for Epic Problems

Commented Jul 2, 2013 at 01:20:08 in GPS for the Soul

“Deepak,
This is a great stage setter for conversation. Conceptually, objective scientific data makes such ideas as raising consciousness easier to digest. I think the real challenge is to get big business to buy into the dialogue. I'm not sure what the answer to that is, but I am sure that it's a necessary part of the process as a potential agent of change in a time of growing economic disparity.”

“Ida,
Thanks for this article. A wonderful reminder of our own abilities to cultivate well-being. We so often place that responsibility on others. It becomes quite the challenge in managing work - stress but the same principles apply. Take the reins of well-being toward inner change and that tone and disposition of well-being become contagious. @Judymartin8”

“Thanks for sharing this. Generally in yogic breathing it's suggested that we breath into the nose so those tiny hairs can catch some undesired elements before we take them all in. Interesting news on that front. On another note, humming is very much aligned with mantra which brings awareness into the moment and offers soothing sounds and calming to the central nervous system.”

“Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. I've been a student of Buddhism, among other traditions, for many years and certainly would never want to offend. Language is often received through different lens'. The image of the Buddha is one that people relate to. It was a simple reference and one I often run across in yoga. Lexicon, as I have learned being a news writer and yoga/meditation teacher is always open for discussion. We must always be sensitive. It's certainly it's good to hear your point of view. Thank you for writing.”

Mindfulness, Meditation, Wellness and Their Connection to Corporate America's Bottom Line

Commented Mar 18, 2013 at 23:23:33 in Business

“Nice overview Arianna,
You are right - the well-being of employees is a bottom-line issue. Companies that recognize this now, are banking an incredible competitive edge for the future.

The most important and valuable commodity in big business is talent. If talent is exhausted, lacks the ability to focus, or is chronically stressed or sick, critical thinking suffers along with productivity in every sense, every sector. When that happens, the most important drivers of profit and competitive action are diminished. Creativity and innovation suffer when work stress rules the cubicle. Glad you have joined the conversation in such a big way. @JudyMartin8”
The Coming Interspiritual Age

The Coming Interspiritual Age

Commented Dec 19, 2012 at 11:21:06 in Religion

“Bernard,
Thank you for your commentary. I suspect that Brother Wayne is smiling on this from another dimension. He once told me that we are all "gurus" - all teachers to each other. His love and appreciation for all ways was fiercely unconditional, unwavering and non-judgmental.

Ultimately, the history of religion reads subtly as a road map of spiritual influence. These teachings have informed our human makeup to hopefully allow for an expanding awareness of the cosmic soup from which we all emerged, and if we're lucky enough can tap into, to elevate a society in great need of transformation. This book gives equal credence to the many paths. As do teachers, each path has the potential to illuminate consciousness en mass, at various levels in consciousness and society. I think this book is also a reminder to not toss out the basic spiritual principles, rituals and values from which we came, if that still furthers one to go deeper into their own transformation. Sometimes perhaps it's through the simplicity of those humble beginnings that we see deeper meaning while rising to the demands of our current times and a new vision of a mindful evolution toward unity.

“Enjoyed the article. The coherence you write about cannot occur without the thread of common purpose. I think there are so many divergent interests along with cultural and social value shifts going on that people are jumping on a new bandwagon every day. One would already think we've reached a tipping point, socially, environmentally, economically, globally etc for more coherence.. perhaps we have splintered groups acting locally in their own value driven marketplace rather than with global concerns in mind? One thing is for sure. The inter-connectivity of our world is rapidly making it impossible to avoid such discussions.”

wpmiller on Sep 8, 2012 at 18:07:49

“Thanks Judy. I believe you're correct in a certain domain, but the coherence he's talking about is not the rational, linear, left-brain, let's-agree-on-a-goal sort. It's a more fundamental sort of resonance and coupling that enables events and phenomena to emerge from the underlying field of potential. As we wake up to our potential, collective human consciousness will play an increasingly proactive role in cocreating the world we experience. I believe (or at least hope) that's our next evolutionary stage.”

“Pricilla,
Nice insightful and honest picture of the meditative process. Many often are intrigued by mediation but it seems so foreign and esoteric to some. I like the way you demystify it. The first concern I always hear from students is they don't have the time. In making just a few minutes a day the world can open up to you as I believe it's cumulative. Consistency, not length of time is a great way to share how one can enter into the beginning of practice. The science is there to back up the impact, we just have to get quiet enough to listen.”

hp blogger Priscilla Warner on Oct 21, 2011 at 07:23:02

“Thanks for your insights, Judy.

I do believe that the effects of meditation are cumulative. And Dr. Andrew Newberg, the neuroscientist who scanned my brain before and after eight weeks of practice, charted my progress in black and white in the book.

Meanwhile, the world around us provides colorful opportunities for quiet, reflective moments. And those moments do add up.”

Warren Buffett Should Hold the Government to His Investment Standards

Commented Sep 7, 2011 at 11:54:35 in Business

“Carol,
What a juicy analysis. Your point about the U-S tax code juxtaposed against how Buffet chooses to invest in companies he understands, makes a lot of sense. He keeps investment simple. The railroad deal had heads turning, but in our uncertain economy - clearly made sense. U-S tax code - not so much. @judyMartin8”

“Insightful post. What especially resonates is Listening. When lonely we often tend to listen to the negative thoughts instead of the silence of our inner wisdom. It takes discipline and a keen desire to go a bit deeper. Sounds tough - but what can emerge from that is deep and just might surprise you.”

hp blogger Anne Naylor on Jun 13, 2010 at 10:44:24

“Thank you so much for what you say, Judy, and for your kind words.

I have heard it said: What is wisdom? and the answer: Practice, practice practice. I think discipline is like that.

We all have so much deep down, if only we will listen for it. Sometimes, easier said than done.

Joy and happiness to you,
Anne”

“Ellen,
This journalist has heard you. Tonight in my coverage I will most certainly be mentioning your points here. It is jobs, jobs, jobs... but the devil is in the details. I think Americans will be looking for specifics tonight. As Mr. Obama is probably one of the great orators of our time, I suspect the expectations will be high. Here's hoping we get more than just a hopeful overview and instead solid direction that spans all socio-economic classes and generations.”

New Study On Global Work-Family Policies Has Implications for U.S.

Commented Dec 1, 2009 at 13:49:02 in Healthy Living

“It's just amazing that the U.S. is so far behind with regard to Work Life effectiveness and policies. But then again - let's deconstruct. We've been one of the richest productive countries in the world. Commerce has been King. The almighty dollar has trumped the fact that the machine is run with human capital - human beings. We've forgotten. Being the founder of WorkLifeNation.com and a member of the media I have seen the complications in bringing attention to this topic. It wasn't considered sexy. But that has changed. Due to the economic meltdown people are faced with struggling on so many levels. That stress has brought us back to earth in a way - we've had to surrender to the human condition. We're not machines - we're people. Let's start treating our so-called human capital - as if they were our mothers, children etc. Now that's a shift.”
