A cryptic snippet for today.
There are at least four types of kavvanah at play in the activity of the Meditator archetype in our minyan, and they are:
- Daily mini mindfulness of the body, food, weather etc. (berakhot)
- Full fledged Meditations of Compassion for all sentient beings (Jewish first) (birkat hamazon)
- Scribal focus for textual presence (shema)
- Authoritative control over all distraction (amidah)
