CONTINUOUS MINDFULNESS AND AWARENESS OF REALITY
Mindfulness takes meditation ... and applies it to one’s whole life.
Well, a good starting point is to breathe consciously … slowly … and deeply as you go about your daily life.
Here is a must. In order to know what is real you need to disidentify with your so-called “ego-self” as well as the various “me’s” within your mind ... indeed, all your “mental noise”, chatter and “movies”. Those things are not the person which, in truth, you are.
Note the presence of any unhealthy, painful thoughts or emotions. Don’t suppress or deny them. Step back with dissociation from the “activating event”. “See” and feel the emotion instead.
