Today, September 11, 2011 feels like the right time to discuss mindfulness.
Mindfulness is the idea of being right here, right now. It’s paying attention to the details of the world around you. Hearing the music that’s playing. Noticing the bird on the window sill. Really listening when someone talks to you. That’s all, nothing more. Yes, it’s really that simple.
This is how we “slow down time.”
It’s free, too. Anybody can do it anytime, anywhere.
And all we really have is right now.
