Be Mindful Today: #3 Equanimity

“Mindfulness is deliberately paying full attention to what is happening around you, in your body, heart, and mind. Mindfulness is awareness without criticism or judgment. This is the Buddhist concept of equanimity and is the grounding for wisdom”

  1. I don’t know if this is the sort of “mindfulness” you write about, but this summer I have been very mindful of the effects of a minor concussion on both body and mind. It’s been an interesting journey. I’ve found it fascinating (that’s the scientist in me), humbling to realize how fragile we are, and uplifting to learn how we can heal given time, patience and willingness to experience the journey.

    • It depends Margaret. For example my wife has high blood pressure that gives her a feeling of heavy headedness across the day. She is aware of it, but she can be reading a book, watching tv, etc but is still aware of the feeling or sensation. But, twice a day she will meditate for 30-40 mins purely focusing on the sensation of heavy headedness and letting other thoughts drift away. The heavy head eventually disappears as she becomes focused and calmer. “All states of being are determined by mind”!
