No Time Off: All Sensory Consumption Leaves Mind Impressions

September 9, 2018

In this talk, Dharma teacher Fred Eppsteiner explains the importance of paying attention to what we are consuming with our bodies and our minds. He highlighted the importance of paying attention to the experiences we are having with our 5 senses, since it is with these senses that we enter and connect with the world. He explained that when one of our senses makes contact with the world, whether the experience in pleasurable, neutral, or un-pleasurable, it always leaves an impression in our mind.


Because of this, we need to pay extra attention to what we are consuming throughout the day, and especially with our digital media. Although each sensory experience may last a short time, the effects of what we consume with our senses are long-term and condition the very quality of our minds. Knowing this, we should take extra care to bring mindfulness and discernment to what we choose to consume with our senses in every moment.
