Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience.
It isn't more complicated than that.
It is opening to or recieving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is,
without either clinging to it or rejecting it.

Master patience as well.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

That's kind of what everyone does every day, except that they don't really know what they're doing, and it all gets used up in the daily grind. This is why people are dependant on their phones, pda's, coffee, Celine Dion, etc.

People should be more aware of what they're doing with themselves and their time. :laugh:

That's Zen right there.

"If you're going to eat, just eat. Don't eat and read the paper."

Awareness is important, but equally important is Attention. Attention is key. Attention is very valuable. Why else would we "pay" it?

ATTENTION!

Well, if you are going to eat and read the paper, then just eat and read the paper. Don't eat, read the paper and listen to the radio.

Interesting, over here the expression is to "take" attention.

Yes, I like to feed my head and my belly together. But I try to read spiritual material, not mundane stuff. I don't read the paper anyway. If it's Really important, I'll hear the air raid siren.
