Curious and Mindful
We can practice mindfulness while standing, walking, sitting and laying down. Having this intimate relationship with our heart, body and mind and taking note of what it is to be known with curiosity, we find that not only does our overall awareness increase in our everyday life, but that every moment brings along with it something new.
Going through these four postures with curiosity while having an intimate relationship with my body, heart and mind, I am being my own best friend by sensing, allowing and accepting what it is to be known. Ever since I have picked up the concept of mindfulness, I have realized that life is truly exciting, as there is always something new going on within my body as well as in my surroundings. Being curious and mindful, I have a sense of gratitude and appreciation for every moment.
Meditation is a practice of acceptance of what is, not a changing of what is nor a changing of who we are. Realizing this, we can bring curiosity to every moment as well as learn to become our own best friend. In doing so, we become better people all around.
