What Is Mindfulness?

GETTING STARTED

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Suppose you have found a very interesting book. If you find the book unputdownable, you would keep reading it all night until you finish reading it.  Then, it can be said that you are in the state of mindfulness. Suppose you play tennis and just can’t stop playing the wonderful game, because you find it so exciting and fun. Again, it can be said that you are in the state of mindfulness.

If you practice meditation of some sort, you need to put yourself in a challenging situation where you have no choice but to meditate absolutely in earnest. In other words, if you just want an ‘easy mediation lesson’, you are unlikely to discover the true meaning of mediation.
You don’t have to make a very big mental effort to focus or clear your mind. You don’t have to create tension in your thoughts or feelings or bodily sensations, either.
When your mind is in a very natural state, it retains good concentration. It doesn’t struggle or fight. Once you are engaged in mindfulness, you don’t experience any pain or fatigue or exhaustion. You are powerful, because you have reset yourself. That power is mindfulness.
Mindfulness can be described as a sense unity with reality. It is a form of happy and gentle acceptance. Mindfulness can also be described as a sense of integration with your own past, your environment and all the people around you. It does not require any judgment.
