He explains that in Eastern philosophy being mindful means you must investigate inwardly your own nature through carful and systematic self-observation and through this practice you will live a life of greater satisfaction, harmony, and wisdom.
Through my thirty-five years of studying the workings of mind and the visible effects of our thinking, I’ve concluded that we must always look deep within our Soul. It’s the inside that counts, not our words or sometimes not even our actions. It’s what is buried in our hearts, our beliefs, convictions, fears and real feelings that come to fruition.
And therefore, we must ask yourselves, ‘What is my purpose and what is my goal in life? What do I really stand for? What is it that makes me fulfilled and happy, but also what makes me cringe and upset?’. Then listen carefully. The questions will be answered because it all stems from within.
Mindfulness will bring us back to the moment at hand. It will slow us down and focus on what’s important. It’ll keep us in line, so to speak, and find balance and calm. Isn’t that what it’s all about?
