Can You Smile and Say “NO?”

Quotes and Notes #260, July 22

Push your distractions aside for a while

Push your distractions aside for a while

“Information overload (on all levels) is exactly WHY you need an ‘ignore list.” It has never been more important to be able to say ‘No.’”—Mani S. Sivasubramanian—

With things to do, things that keep pounding our on consciousness, seeking attention, and choices—so many choices, our inner focus may become brittle and fractured. We must practice escape to concentration as a trigger to meditation. It is important, at times, to push the mental fragments aside.

“No.” is a word. It is also a sentence and perhaps a philosophy. Try it.
And it is all right to share a smile while saying “No.”
Everything is going to be all right
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
