What feeds the consciousness of someone who becomes so hateful and fearful of his own sexual desire that he would turn against those whom he has been led to believe are the source of his sinful desires and temptation? How many more out there are subject to the same influences? In this episode we are taking a closer look at the doctrines and teachings that fed the consciousness of a murderer. We’re talking about the dangers of purity culture in light of the recent spa shootings in Atlanta. We will also examine some of the cultural biases in the United States that feed American notions about those of Asian heritage.

In our everyday lives, we spend so much of our waking hours running away from the present moment. We run around making ourselves busy, chasing whatever’s next. When we have a chance to stop this rushing and running, our thoughts are often consumed with fears about the future or regrets about the past. The practice of conscious breathing is a way for us to stop running, quiet our minds for a moment, and fully inhabit the present moment with our body and mind. It can help bring us into a state of calm and ease, and leave us better equipped to face life’s circumstances as they arise rather than losing ourselves in constant worry about what *might* happen.This brief meditation episode is highly influenced by Mindfulness of Breathing by Brother Phap Dung of Plum Village. Listen to meditations by Brother Phap Dung and others on the Plum Village Mobile App, available on iOS and Android.Interact with Fundamental Shift on:Web | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | 704.665.7473Interact with The Quieted Mind on:Web | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | YouTubeMusic by '86 AerostarSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/mediocremyg)
