Mindfulness is easy to say, but I’ve realized it’s much harder to implement. It’s not simply noticing something. It’s a combination of deep listening, concentration, and quietness in our being. It’s being able to see yourself in others. It’s empathy mixed with suffering, mixed with curiosity and joy. It’s witnessing with our wisdom and compassion. Go outside. Look out your window. Notice. Listen. Watch. Feel. If you’re distracted by something else, just go back to what you were noticing even if you get distracted over and over. Distractions are an important part of a practice.
