When we seek to walk a path of mindfulness, we must begin with the present moment. Whatever arises, seek to observe it without any commentary whatsoever. When the mind begins to judge – good or bad, right or wrong, pleasurable or frustrating – pay attention to the energy behind the words. Something insightful awaits discovery. Then, purposely bring your mind back into a neutral state and notice how long it takes to move into judgment again.
There is always an opportunity to be more mindful, more compassionate and more accepting. Seek to cultivate these gifts within yourself.
Today my intention is to be a quiet source of peace in the present moment.
