Mindfulness is known to have its roots in Buddhism, yet many cultures worldwide have a tradition of contemplation and reflection. My dear friend Willie Gordon, an Elder Aboriginal Australian, shared his reflective practice as called sitting in a state of “Guurrbi”.
All schools of Buddhism include Mindfulness as a Foundational practice whether that be Theravada in which the seeker is focused on enlightenment gaining insights of self from personal experience, application of knowledge and critical reasoning. Or whether it is Mahayana in which the seeker is not only focused on personal enlightenment of self but also offering Loving Kindness to others as a “May all beings be Happy and have no suffering.”
Mindfulness is a necessary practice for better living.
“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.” Thich Nhat Hahn
“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it. ” Thich Nhat Hahn
