Mindfulness


Jon Kabat-Zinn the father of secular mindfulness said: 


“Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally.  It’s about knowing 

what’s on your mind.”

 

Too many of us live in the past, ruminating about decisions we should or should not have made.


Too many of us live in the future, coming up with solutions to problems we think we might have due to some things that are happening 

in the news, or at work, or a situation with our friends – maybe even enemies, or people we know, or most probably certain members 

of our family.

 

Keep in the present.  Keep in the now.  Keep your eyes on your own paper, not what others are doing or accomplishing.

 

If you do comparative analysis, compare only to yourself.  Not others, not celebrities, don’t wish for what you don’t have.  Enjoy what you 

do have and make that best of what you do have.
