Starting with mindfulness, one becomes aware of the world.
You become mindful of your thoughts, your feelings, the words you use.
It is the beginning to a more purposeful life of understanding and grace.
Right conduct as it’s also known.
Many great meditative traditions begin with a practice in awareness.
The west is finally beginning to understand its own.
Let’s just not forget that the goal of mindfulness is to teach you how to meditate.
Meditation is the awareness that doesn’t use words.
If your practice is filled with inner monologue, no matter how mindful it may be,
than your awareness is using words. And meditating you are not.
