Mindfulness in the real world
There are many different ideas of what mindfulness is. In Buddhist psychology, mindfulness is simply being able to focus on something without becoming distracted with a mind that is relaxed, stable, and clear.
The opposite of this is having a mind that is tense, distracted, and dull, something we all recognize from everyday life. Imagine going through the day with a completely relaxed mind, being fully focused on all your tasks and everyone you meet and experiencing everything with a brilliant clarity. These are the direct benefits of developing mindfulness.
The true benefit of developing mindfulness, however, is to then apply that mindfulness to our own experience and the world around us. This application of mindfulness leads to insights that help us live more in tune with reality.
On the basis of mindfulness beautiful states of minds like love, compassion, generosity will grow. On the basis of mindfulness we can become more wise and insightful and instead of being constantly tormented by our own minds, we can make our own minds our best friend.

The wisdom of doing nothing
Reading about mind training and cultivating our minds can sound exhausting. Yet another thing on the list of improvement projects next to the failed gym membership and the exhausting need for professional training to keep up in your career.
When we, the people of modernity, when we meet these age old techniques of meditation and mind training, we approach them like everything else in our lives. We want to perform, we want to be the best, we try so hard. Too hard. This becomes our biggest challenge.
We need to cultivate the ability to relax deeply, to let go of all striving, to simply rest in things as they are, to experience contentment without the need to achieve anything. We need to learng to stop “doing” and cultivate “being”.
Come spend a moment of stillness and peace with us. Just sitting quietly together with no agenda, no striving, no need for improvement. Come sit with us in the spirit of kindness, and self-care.
