we can un-train ourselves from distraction + anxiety
Mindfulness is being aware of our present moment reality without attaching to the constant chatter + commentary running through our minds.
It's developing a different relationship with our thoughts by realizing we are not our thoughts.
Mindfulness happens when we fully engage with our senses, are cognizant of our surroundings and stay rooted in our bodies.
We don't have to stop thinking.
It's about learning to work WITH our thoughts.
It's not about self-help. We're not striving to be anything other than what we already are.
But it is about self-care.
We learn to soften unto ourselves + others.
We learn to BE in our lives, instead of always thinking about our lives.
let's encourage our scholars to explore by exploring ourselves
meditation is a PRACTICE
which means: actual application or use of an idea, belief, or method, as opposed to theories relating to it
IT MEANS WE DO IT EVERY DAY
we train our minds just like we train our muscles at the gym
simple, but not easy
potential to be PROFOUND.
choose a time of day
declare your intention
sit with others
most important is bringing a sense of openness and curiosity to your practice
my challenge to you: breathe for ten minutes every day.
