Mindfulness allows you to recognize the Spirit within and achieve cosmic consciousness ~ your unity and connection with all things.

Begin by being mindful of your thoughts, your actions, and your emotions as you move through your day.

Become the silent observer of your thoughts:

One of the greatest teachings that comes to us from ancient times is that the highest form of human intelligence is the ability to witness yourself, to observe yourself, without judging yourself.   Mindfulness will bring you that skill of observing yourself without judging yourself.

Even in the stillness, the cosmos swirls. Even when silence reigns, we hear its heartbeat.

True silent observation is key!

The first time I managed to meditate long enough for my mind (and EGO) to shut up astounded me.

I floated on a sea of bliss and tranquility and surfaced from the session relaxed and refreshed.

No wonder the Buddha sat under a tree to meditate rather than interacting with the rest of the world. : )

No wonder the Buddhist monks are always smiling.

“Observing yourself without judging yourself”… Now, that’s unconditional love at its best… and it’s probably a sure way to stop judging others, as well 😀

Just so.

When we give ourselves permission to be who we are at this moment in time, we are more willing to accept others as they are . . . even if we need to steer clear of them for our own peace of mind. : )
