We are simply committing ourselves to paying attention to our life. We use meditation to help us in that attention process. We are not trying to become good meditators. We are trying to wake up.
~ William Martin
When you take the emphasis off the effort of being mindful and onto the results you’re trying to achieve, it becomes easier.
Mindfulness is only the vehicle: it’s just a method you can use to get you to where you want to be.
It is not something in itself to focus on – the journey itself and the destination are far more important.
Focus instead on just being aware of this present breath, this present moment, and your space in it.
One breath at a time.
