In my readings, I have often seen mentioned the concept of mindfulness.What is it, and is it a state we wish for ourselves?The simple answer for me is a resounding YES.Much work has to be done to really appreciate who the real you is, then to love the person you discover. That is an emotional journey and I used, and use with others, an exhaustive series of questions developed at John Hopkins University.Today, I use mindfulness meditation, another learned tool, to stay in touch with the inner me and stay in the present moment.Freedom from the world around me for a period every day is such a liberating feeling!!So read on if this concept is interesting to you! It is a tool you acquire and improve on with coaching , practise and time!!Make yourself a great Tuesday unless you have other plans!! luv
Mindfulness meditation, in its pure and classic sense, is about finding your true self. It is about waking up to the true nature of the present moment. As you look deeply into yourself and other beings in the world, you will have the opportunity to free yourself from the concepts that you have about everything, including who you are. – Andrew Weiss
Am I willing to look deeply into the concepts I have carried for years and examine them? Am I willing to let go of the concepts I have carried for years and be open to look at everything in a new light without judgment? Am I willing to live in this moment only, free from the past experiences that have influenced my concepts and judgments? Am I willing to give up all the concepts I have believed because others have said they are true and look at my life with my eyes only?
It is so freeing to be willing to let go of all the concepts I have been carrying with me and discover who I am in this very moment.
