Mindfulness is a practice, which cultivates a self-kindness and compassion, awareness, acceptance, gratitude and gentleness.
It is not letting go or trying to do this or that….its about doing nothing…to not try…to just be
It is accepting of what is and know that this is exactly as it should be right now…
The perfect imperfectness of now and in this time and space.
"In Asian languages, the word for 'mind' and the word for 'heart' are same. So if you're not hearing mindfulness in some deep way as heartfulness, you're not really understanding it. Compassion and kindness towards oneself are intrinsically woven into it. You could think of mindfulness as wise and affectionate attention". Jon Kabat-Zinn.
"Mindfulness has helped me succeed in almost every dimension of my life. By stopping regularly to look inward and become aware of my mental state, I stay connected to the source of my actions and thoughts and can guide them with considerably more intention".Dustin Moskovitz
