Effect on Emotions
- I try to listen to the mind as if it's somebody else talking. It's a radio I'm listening to all day, and I think it's helpful to say to yourself, “Do I really have to listen to you?” Because the mind is a radio. I'll be thinking about this interview when I go have dinner later, on my own. I'll be replaying things.
- Often it's just so boring that I'll turn on something else to distract me, just to drown out the noise.
Thoughts on Breathing
- I do pranayama every morning for half an hour, 32 minutes exactly. Every day the sun is radiating five pranas and it changes every 32 minutes so if you do a fixed practice of pranayama for 32 minutes you'll be guaranteed to get the pranas evenly.
- So I do that with a vipassana meditation and the Buddhist techniques I did before the gladdening.
- I can hear people breathing and they just don't know how to breathe. You can hear them doing stress breaths and they are virtually suffocating themselves. The breath is brainwaves.

- App: I have a heart-rate strap that I use with the Sweetbeat app.
- When I went to school I had moments of being bullied and also being the bully. When I think back there were times when I picked on people. I think it was an attention thing.
- Mindfulness is very useful because if you don't give people, the bully, the attention they want, they are not going to keep coming back. I found if I didn't engage with them, then it wasn't a very satisfying experience for the bully.
