How to define Mindfulness?

From the beginning of time, people have always been curious about the supernatural and how to find it. Even though it all started as one huge misconception, the practice of mindful meditation continued to change the lives of true wisdom-seekers throughout history.

It stimulates perception without judgment, and it disregards the analytical attitude towards everything that surrounds us. Mindfulness is more than just becoming the witness of thoughts – how they arise and vanish. It’s the substance of all creation, your only friend, who unlike the ego, doesn’t have hidden agenda.  

For reaching such state, you need to move beyond the concept of meditation

As a person faces its end, it realizes how life passed with lightning speed, and there is little hope for slowing down the pace. However, to be truly in the presence of wisdom means to discover timelessness and spaciousness that are not time-bound.

The Buddha was among the first human beings who reached a state of total awareness, and absence of the egoic-consciousness through the practice of meditation. He imparted wisdom and taught his followers to remove their attachments to the external world.  

Not adhering to anything will give you the opportunity to experience peace and inner harmony. Don’t cling to your concepts, methods, ideas, opinions, but be open to new experiences because every second brings new life.
