Passage of The Day: What is Mindfulness?

“Mindfulness is the act of consciously focusing the mind in the present moment, without judgement and without attachment to the moment. Mindfulness contrasts with automatic, habitual or rote behavior. When we are mindful we are awake, like a sentry guarding the gate. When we are mindful, we are open to the fluidity of each moment as it arises and falls away.”
