Life can be overwhelming when we’re focused on what’s approaching or what’s behind us. We need to stay grounded in where we are now and fully embrace the present moments we are living in. Be present with the help of these quotes about living in a state of true mindfulness.
In Asian languages, the word for ‘mind’ and the word for ‘heart’ are same. So if you’re not hearing mindfulness in some deep way as heartfulness, you’re not really understanding it. Compassion and kindness towards oneself are intrinsically woven into it. You could think of mindfulness as wise and affectionate attention.
