Living on Purpose Through Mindfulness

Mindfulness is a practice of being purposefully aware of ourselves and being fully present in the moment. Through practicing mindfulness we become fully attentive to where we are, what we are doing, and how we are feeling in the moment. Mindfulness is a way of developing deliberate consciousness.

Practicing mindfulness improves mental focus and memory, reduces stress, calms emotions, and fosters healthier interpersonal relationship.

Mindfulness And The Power Of Appreciation

My reflections have uncovered a simple truth: To experience and feel appreciation, to show appreciation, to appreciate, requires the simple prerequisite of Mindfulness. And further, Appreciation is Power. Why don’t we experience the Powerfulness of Appreciation more often in our lives? Before we value anything, the fact that we value anything at all, is because we have first seen it and registered its value. Take our appreciation of a great work of art, for example, a beautiful piece of jewellery or furniture, or a Ming Dynasty vase. And yet we also know the experience of walking through a magnificent museum, past artefacts and exhibitions of great beauty and history, and yet, perhaps in a glaze and a daze, maybe with two or three toddlers in tow. We haven’t seen a thing.

When we are not here, not embodied, not grounded, we allow all those dark things that are happening around the globe to take over.
