I was very honoured to write this guest post for Zen Being ♥
**This post was written by guest-blogger, Megan Livingston of I Stop for Suffering.
I was inspired today by listening to a dharma talk from the beautiful Sylvia Boorstein.
In the talk she was discussing mindfulness in everyday life.
The talk encouraged me to think about mindfulness and its function in our lives.
Thich Nhat Hanh describes mindfulness as “The energy of being aware and awake to the present moment. It is the continuous practice of touching life deeply in every moment of daily life. To be mindful is to be truly alive, present and at one with those around you and with what you are doing. We bring our body and mind into harmony”
Mindfulness is an intention to be present, open and equanimous. It does not anticipate the future, or reflect on the past. It is an awareness of perception – not thinking, interpreting, or evaluating.
