I asked someone to describe their concept of vipassana…

She said “Life’s full of highs and lows. My interpretation of vipassana is to cling to the present and learn from the past. One tends to get attached to highs and dwell on lows. Real happiness may be achieved by realizing that though those extremes exist, they best serve as learning experiences.”  What do you think?


About Michael Levin

Michael loves sharing what he's learned about organic lifestyles like living off the grid and bicycle commuting. He calls it "lifestyle entrepreneurship". He's into organic gardening, mindful living, and realizes that we only have this life and each other. His favorite quote is "The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both." (James A. Michener)
