The beauty of mindfulness

Thank you to Gems of Delight for sharing this breathtaking video.

To me this video truly captures the sheer beauty and exquisiteness of mindfulness.

More than words ever could.

There is absolutely no doubting that the nurse is giving 100% of her mindfulness, attention, love and tenderness to this baby.  And the act of giving the baby it’s first bath.

And even though it’s a newborn, it’s equally obvious that the baby is aware of this complete mindfulness.  And that it is loved and safe.

Imagine if we all gave such mindfulness to every one of our interactions.  Regardless of the person.

If we allowed ourselves to be that open and present.

If we treated each person as respectfully and tenderly as the nurse treated this baby.

It would change the world.

    Mindfulness, in Buddhism, comes from the idea of the Eightfold Path to Enlightenment. Right Mindfulness means being aware of our thoughts, words, and deeds. In this video, the nurse is very aware of her every thought, word, and deed as she controls the very life of this newborn baby. Enjoy and my you have right mindfulness throughout your day…

    Absolutely beautiful! I actually watched this video with the sound off and it almost looks like the nurse is “healing” the baby in an energetic sense. Being born can be a traumatic experience for the soul. There’s a reason we can’t usually remember it!

  13. Obviously, this is a great post! You touched all of us with such wise words and wonderful observations. Thank you!

  14. Oh Meg that was so sweet!It’s also the care, love and caress of the nurse for the baby, although she knows that rarely she might see him/her again.Still she fully devotes herself in the 15 minutes she has.It seemed like the baby was dancing along with her to the rhythm of love….She didn’t let the baby cry at all!SHEER DEVOTION!Loved it Meg!Thanx for sharing…
