Mindful Sip: Failure

by mandy lipka

In terms of meditation practices, failure is not an issue. There is no way to fail because you are not trying to get anywhere or feel anything in the first place. As long as you are willing to breathe and be in the state you are already in, you are practicing mindfulness. If you stay with it, you will no doubt notice that the mind changes, the body changes, everything changes. Meanwhile, you just sit, or do the body scan, or practice yoga. In time, both mindfulness and concentration deepen, and with this deepening comes more reliable access to relaxation, inner calmness, and sustained awareness. This can be accompanied by new insights concerning who you are and how you relate to the world.” / John Kabat-Zinn – Mind Body Medicine
