How Mindfulness Empowers Us

4.7 ·

Many traditions speak of the opposing forces within us, vying for our attention. Native American stories speak of two wolves, the angry wolf and the loving wolf, who both live inside of us.

Our life experiences grow out of the wolf we feed. Too often it seems the easiest path is to engage in hate and fear, rather than be compassionate, loving, truthful, and generous. We need to bring mindfulness to our daily life, paying attention to the angry wolf and catching our emotions and thoughts as they arise, if we want to live a peaceful, successful, and happy life.

In this video narrated by Sharon Salzberg, discover how mindfulness allows us to see our thoughts and feelings as they really are, freeing us from old ways of thinking.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
