Mindfulness – down to earth.
With mindfulness you don’t miss your life because you were looking elsewhere. You are able to give your attention to whatever – or whoever – needs it at that moment.
It begins with knowing how to become calm. That in itself is worth knowing.
From there you begin to see how you work – what stresses you, what inspires you, how you affect the people around you. You begin to unravel and understand why you do things and, if they aren’t the best things for you, to do something else. Gradually moments of clarity, insight and joy come into your life.
It’s not instant: the quality of mindfulness won’t come into your life by trying a technique once. Like any physical skill, it to be exercised deliberately and regularly to become strong.
