Mindfulness and Why You Should Practice It

"Many people are alive but don't touch the miracle of being alive."
-- Thich Nhat Hanh
"Be where you are; otherwise, you will miss your life."
--Buddha

Mindfulness is the ability to be fully present, to be fully aware of the reality around you. You let go of the distractions of past and future and are able to relax and clearly enjoy awareness. It is so important to your soul's journey here on earth, that Mindfulness is one of the 7 Factors of Enlightenment.

Our minds can be our greatest ally or our greatest enemy. But, when you are being truly mindful, you will not get lost in erratic thinking about the past or the future. Mental suffering is largely eliminated because you experience your emotions without resistance. Mindfulness can help you achieve peace and balance in a world that is forever spinning faster. It is invaluable on your healing journey.
