Mindful living is about not letting life pass you by while living in reactions and in your head. It’s about stepping outside into the world to be a good human who practices virtue and lives according to his or her nature.
Meditation is mindfulness training that awakens us beyond conditioned and habitual thoughts and reveals the nature of reality.
In this guide, the process and fruits of meditation practice are understood as the “Natural Presence » of the true us. Being an awakened person means being present, here and now, for others to discover us honestly and for us, to live our lives with intention.
The presence is the complete and transparent awareness of what is happening — here and now — and the open space that allows and includes all experiences.
Allowing things to happen opens up a big window through life, opening what life has to offer by just being ready.
There are practical strategies that promote it (called the media skillful) that create an atmosphere conducive to deepening presence.
The art of practicing is to be prepared to enjoy life experiences with curiosity, kindness, and a light touch.
