Mindfullness

~

 

Right mindfulness means we know what’s going on.

For example, I am breathing in, and I know that I am breathing in.
That is right mindfulness of the breath.

When we take a step and we know that we are taking the step, that is right mindfulness of the step.

When we drink a cup of coconut juice, in that moment
we have mindfulness of drinking.

We bring the mind back to the body so that it’s present as we are sitting, standing, lying down, putting on our robe, taking off our robe, brushing our teeth.

Our mind is always present.

That is the secret of Zen.
