Mindfulness looks much different for us than a Monk!

Mindfulness for us, does not look like the Daili Llama, always composed, centered, benevolent, and peaceful.
.
.
We get lost, dissociate, doubt, worry, become scared.
.
.
Mindfulness brings us back, allows us to let go.
.
.
At anytime our next breath is a safe haven.
.
.
Everything is fine in this moment.
.
.
Whatever the external circumstance, the best we can be or do, is to let go and stay present.
.
.
Being focused, centered, offers our best chance in all situations.
.
.
Life is a journey with differing degrees of challenges, some small, some crisis level.
.
.
We all die, so results do not always end in happily ever after.
.
.
The more we practice, the more we master one breath, the easier it is to deploy our power.

    A great reminder of the basics, the practice and why. We don’t have control of the universe and what is in our future. In a blink of an eye we can be pulled off balance and feel doubt, fear, and of which you speak. In the most difficult of situations you can come back to being centered and let go.

  2. be at the centre of ourselves and let go. Great Post!

  3. mindfulness allows us to face our demons first. Doubt, worry, desire, need and fear have to be in some kind of perspective.

    Mindfulness serves two purposes. When crisis hits, when we feel loss, when life makes no sense, this next moment is all we have.

    When life is good, a judgment about our living condition, mindfulness seems to be not needed as much.

    We can get lost on either side of this equation.
