Mindfulness meditation is a very simple practice (or so it seems!).
It is the drawing of awareness to the flow of present moment experience (thoughts, feelings, physical sensations) with openness and an attitude of acceptance. That’s it! In doing this we train our monkey minds to come out of our habitual patterns of self-deception and negativity. In addition, mindfulness is an active practice which we can use to investigate the ways in which the mind gets caught and bring it back to the spaciousness within.
Despite its simplicity, mindfulness is tremendously powerful and can open us to our capacity to live a vibrant, awake life full of compassion and creativity. When practiced sincerely and diligently over time, it has the potential to liberate us from our suffering altogether! Phew!
