What is mindfulness to you?

 
 
"Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will); being with the unpleasant without fear it will always be this way (which it won't)." - James Baraz</p><br />

How happy is this moment for you?

 
 
Whether this moment is happy or not depends on you. It's you that makes the moment happy. It's not the moment that makes you happy. With mindfulness, concentration and insight, any moment can become a happy moment. Happiness is an art.

How do you express your love for others?

We express our love and care for others by working hard, but if we do not have time for the people we love, if we cannot make ourselves available to them, how can we say we love them? True love needs mindfulness. We have to take the time to acknowledge the presence of the person we love.</p><br />
