When I bring up mindfulness, many of my friends look at me like I just disclosed being from Mars. The fact is, however, we are reminded to be present and pay attention (the essence of mindfulness) throughout our lives:
Pay attention in class… Look at me when I’m talking to you… Don’t be texting while driving or talking to someone… Stop and smell the roses…
Mindfulness is not new. Calling it mindfulness, and acknowledging its importance, is the only thing new about it.
In a chaotic world where chaos is the accepted way of life mindfuless may seem the most foreign practice.
Indeed. Many of my friends and associates prefer the smell of money, or the smell of new consumer products, to stopping to smell the roses. Thank you for reading 🙂 Cheers
