Mindfulness: More Being Than Doing

Mindfulness and meditation free us from the narrow judgments and limited thoughts associated with ego, connecting us instead to boundless experience that we call “life.”  Some people believe that this transcendent experience can arise only in the presence of very specific conditions, or when engaged in particularly “spiritual” activities.

In reality, the opening of the heart in a way that transcends limited thought has more to do with conscious attention focused on one’s direct, present-moment experience, almost irrespective of what activity in which one is engaged at any particular point in time.  Thus, true inner peace can be found more in “being” than “doing.”
