  • David Bressoud, Former President, Mathematical Association of America

Effect on Emotions

  • Made me more aware of them
  • I am very conscious now about how high my anxiety levels are
  • I'm wildly curious about the role of emotions in the physical body

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Everytime I get nervous, everytime my kids get tantrums I just say Okay… I can feel my heart slow down and the anxiety reduced.
  • It's absolutely necessary

Suggested Resources

  • Book: Instead of an actual book, I recommend Walking Meditation Cards from Donja de Groot in the Netherlands: http://dao2change.com/Contact/ She doesn't list them on her website. I just emailed and asked if I could buy a set.
  • App: Headspace
  • App: Laurie Brown's Pondercast podcast. It's not a meditation app per se, but when I can't sleep in the middle of the night listening to it takes me deep into questions of existence and helps shake off anxieties. I recommend it to friends as a treatment for the “3 am crazies.”

Bullying Story

  • It was my home that was not a safe place.
  • Although we have a different relationship now, my mother was very emotionally and psychologically abusive.

Most Influential Person

  • A leader at a summer camp I attended as a child

Effect on Emotions

  • Mindfulness has helped me to be aware of what my emotions actually are. Up until a few years ago, before I started getting into personal development, I think my vocabulary for emotions was very limited.
  • I thought in the beginning, maybe it was because English is not my first language. Maybe I just hadn't learned the words. But I've also not used the words.
  • I actually just looked up the wheel of emotions where they break down the six core emotions into all the sub emotions and then it splits up from there.
  • I looked at this chart and looked at the words and I've only used a handful of those words.
  • So for me, the first step was learning the vocabulary.
  • The journaling that I do has helped me reflect on those things.

Thoughts on Breathing

  • Breathing is not consciously part of my mindfulness practice.

428 The Mosaic of Life’s Poetic Journey; Author Daniel Levin

428 The Mosaic of Life’s Poetic Journey; Author Daniel Levin

May 20, 2019

Daniel Levin is a unique combination of mystic and businessman. He’s spent his whole life searching for the place called heaven but only realized it during the three years he spent writing his most recent book, The Mosaic. Previous to that, Daniel thought he had found heaven when he was offered the opportunity to run a billion dollar business, but that never happened. Daniel helped Hay House grow from 3 million to 100 million dollars in revenue as Director of Business Development. He also lived as a monk in a monastery for 10 years, studied in a seminary for five years and left one day before becoming a Rabbi. Oh, and did I mention, he’s hitchhiked around the world searching for happiness.
