What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the art of staying in the moment.
Accepting what is.
Because it is already here.
Many of us spend much of our time focused either on the past or on the future, paying very little attention to what is happening in the present, this means that for much of the time we may be unaware of much of our experience. Mindfulness is the practice of staying in the moment, spending more time present to ourselves, and our surroundings. Not trying to change things but trying instead to accept the way that things are for better or for worse.
Mindfulness is not about learning to relax, it is a way of being, of remaining present, and practicing the art of observation. Our daily loves may be full and busy. In order to cope with all this information, we need to slow down and take stock. If we rush about at a vast pace, either physically, mentally, emotionally or even spiritually, we will hit a breakdown point. Now more than ever, we need to become aware of all that we do. We need to learn how to be present in this moment rather than rushing on to the next great plan, or inspiration that we might have. We are ‘human beings’ not ‘human doings’. The clue is in the name!
