…or everything.

“Be involved in the process, not the result”

“Unconcious creation through concious technique”

    While “Be involved in the process, not the result” is a good sentiment in many ways, it can be dangerous. One could end up building the best gas chambers in the world for a fascist regime, as has happened….

    Mindfulness means (in part) knowing the import of your actions and non-actions. No process exists only within its own terms. How many bike tinkerers have lost themselves in the process and left a lonely wife and children in the kitchen? How many riders have pedaled a perfect cadence through a world they never noticed?

    Process and result are one; it is only our entrapment in time that makes them seem separate.

    Excellent points and a good caveat. Wise folks read this blog. I am lucky.
