Being vitally connected to all that exists.” .

“The habit of ignoring our present moments in favor of others yet to come leads directly to a pervasive lack of awareness of the web of life in which we are embedded.
.
.
This includes a lack of awareness and understanding of our own mind and how it influences our perceptions and our actions.
.
.
It severely limits our perspective on what it means to be a person and how we are connected to each other and the world around us.
.
.
Religion has traditionally been the domain of such fundamental inquiries within a spiritual framework,
.
.
but mindfulness has little to do with religion,
.
.
except in the most fundamental meaning of the word,
.
.
as an attempt to appreciate the deep mystery of being alive
.
.
and to acknowledge being vitally connected to all that exists.”
