A life of mindfulness is also at times a life of courage, to be grounded in the strengths that allow us to remain true to our self-chosen intention and values in the face of often dramatic personal and global change.
One step to finding a core strength is to stop at any moment and ask "why." Why is this activity, or event, or line of thought important to me? Why do I care?
Asking why allows us to remember, update, and regenerate the inner self-authored life that gives us strength and purpose… and a life of mindfulness and cognizance.
This series of conversations explores the practices, behaviors and perceptions that can support an endeavor to lead a life of intention and purpose, well-being and regeneration, in a time of global and universal change.
What is happening to me, and what is happening in me, are two different things. What is happening to me is, in a sense, passive. What's happening in me is the recognition that we reach a crucible where all that we see and hear and are influenced by are incoming permissions and possibilities. We have the capacity to make space and seed the crucible that we are with qualities, with intentions, with awareness and presence of mind.
