Nine Essential Qualities of Mindfulness

Nine Essential Qualities of Mindfulness | CALM |
Learn how to say "yes" to the present moment.

Via Annette Schmeling, ozziegontang
Annette Schmeling's curator insight, June 20, 2013 8:46 AM

Greenberg provides basic concepts of mindfulness. A mindfulness practice fosters a deeper connection to self and grounds your very being in the present moment. In the Christian tradition centering prayer opens oneself to the presence of God within and deeply into the experience of the sacrament of the present moment. Learning to say 'Yes!' is an invitation to living beyond words, emotions, and thoughts and leading from within.

No need to add.. Read Annette Schmeling's insight. For those that have read Melanie's blog post, it is a good reminder and also a good piece to share with others inquiring about Mindfulness.

Thomas Aquinas said when asked how do you explain the world. Explain the world in terms of God.  The follow on question flowed quite naturally: How do  you explain God.  He said: You explain God in terms of complete and absolute Mystery.

Lee Thayer's next book in process is on Mental Hygiene. All that we address and talk about are human explanations and interpretations. What we speak of as reality is something that we will never know as it is always seen through the eyes of the beholder.

We say: I learn from my experience. What we mean is: I learn from my interpretations of my experience. I realize I may have the same  near death experience as you and our interpretations of that experience may be polar opposite.

Peter L Wiltshire's curator insight, August 22, 2013 8:23 AM

Mindfulness is a way of being present to yourself and the present moment. It is also a process of becoming your true self.
