The following are excerpts from text found on the website of Common Ground Meditation Center in Minneapolis, providing insight into Mindfulness Practice;
"Mindfulness is the practice of opening to and accepting life just as it is, whether we are practicing sitting meditation or cooking dinner. To begin we make the necessary effort to calm the mind and heart."
"This capacity to be present over time becomes a great friend."
That last one; what a way to say it. I want to repeat this to myself several times, every day!
