A plumber had turned off our water. We were out of milk. Determined to bring the benefits of mindfulness to my situation, I observed my inner world throughout the morning. Adopting a ‘noticing’ attitude, I observed negative thought heaped on negative thought (Not this! . I should’ve known that would happen! . ), and negative emotion heaped on negative emotion (frustration, exasperation and plenty of good old anger). I knew that if I identified too closely with my negative emotions—stopped watching them and started giving in to them— I’d sink (and possibly wallop someone, hopefully not the plumber).
When I look deeply into the moment and see what it asks of me, I can help my children sensitively. In my tradition, Zen, we speak of ‘Beginner’s Mind’, where you see each new moment with fresh eyes rather than falling back on the same old reactions. I find this very helpful for parenting: what worked today might not work tomorrow, just as our way of dealing with one child might not work dealing with another. So I try to respond to exactly what this new moment presents. Parenthood is nothing if not unpredictable so I need to respond differently to each new situation seeing each instant for what it is.
We tend to assume that any calmness of mind can occur only when all our chores are done and the children are asleep or in care. So, effectively, we would be very lucky if we had one hour a day to feel anything like relaxed. In Buddhism, however, we find teachings that help us to be calm regardless of what we’re doing or who we’re with. In this chapter we look at how best to deal with some of the mind states that visit us, in particular guilt. In using Buddhism to deal with negative mind states, we progress slowly, with little steps.
