Twelve Ways to Change Your Thinking: a Stillmind eBook... Download now
We find it almost impossible to stay in the ‘here and now.’ Our minds are continually rehashing the past and considering the future, while simultaneously reasoning through and evaluating options, ideas and experiences.
We very rarely experience what is actually happening without this mind chatter.
And so we rarely experience things ‘just as they are.’
Being mindful can involve two processes, both of which can help you focus on the present. The first process is simply noticing the process (rather than responding to the outcomes) of the thinking and feeling that you are experiencing.
The second process involves your noticing — can your noticing be curious, open and accepting?
A mindful approach has no evaluation or judgement.
A mindful approach means you are not fighting, getting rid of, pushing away or changing what you experience.
A mindful approach helps you experience the ‘present’— just as it is.
