Todays news from Denmark. An all absorbed thoughtful father went to workplace leaving his baby in the car.Temperature outside not more than 23degree C. On return from work he finds the baby collapsed&dead of dehydration(autopsy-result).His thoughtlessness was detected by the mother who went to collect the baby from appointed day-care-centre where the baby was never delivered that day by the father. A tragedy! We are all thoughtfullly engaged in various activities and at the sametime 4 million babies/children die every year in Africa! Thoughtful or thoughtless, we are bereft of action at the moment like this father(without any planned intention, I suppose).So thought plays havoc!Any comments....

Srinivasan,
That is clearly an example of "thoughtlessness" which is actually another form of absorption and lack of awareness in the now.

I started a topic to discuss news items with awareness in Insights (It is called "You are the world". I am quoting you there. Please let me know if you have any objections :-)

Instead of having a separate thread for each news item, I thought we can share the news reactions in same thread. Do see it and let me know your thoughts!Also looking forward to seeing your insightful contributions there!!

There is a certain beauty associated with conditioning.
