“Mindfulness is the awareness that comes when we pay attention – on purpose – in the present moment, while suspending judgment.” Jon Kabat-Zinn
When we live mindfully, we consciously tune into what’s happening in our lives. We leave our auto-pilot days behind to experience our experiences consciously. As we monitor our lives and take responsibility for our actions and outcomes, without judging ourselves or others, our mind quiets, and we tune into our Spirit.
Here, from the quiet recesses of our observer mind, we encounter our true wisdom. No longer are we bound by what our parents think we should do, or society’s rules and regulations. We know, deep within, what our heart and our Spirit are telling us. We live from the center of our being, outward.
We view every encounter as a teacher/student opportunity. When something happens in our life, instead of asking, “Why is this happening to me” we ask, “What am I doing to attract this to myself?” Instead of “Why is my life so full of drama” we ask, “Where am I giving my power away to others?” We look at our lives through the lens of the observer, allowing some distance between the scene and our reaction. How mindful we are determines how easily we accept and how deeply we work our life events.
As we breathe in, we know that we are breathing. As we walk to work, we know that we are walking. And as we sit with our children, we listen deeply and, from a place of compassion, we are 100% present.
This is a gift we give to ourselves and to the people in our lives. We hear them, we see them, we validate them because we are without judgment. And, most importantly, we validate ourselves because we are without internal judgment.
This is the essence of mindfulness. Being without judgment as we fully experience our lives.
