Be Purposeful

Be purposeful with your Mindfulness – as it is not about slowing down or speeding up!

A mindful practise is about doing things on purpose and with purpose. Sometimes you may speed up, other time you may slow down – it is about the balance and being mindful of the circumstance in which you find yourself at any given time. So take the time to be purposeful with your mindfulness endeavours.

Mindfulness is Just the Beginning

The modern practices of Mindfulness are a distilled portion of the eastern meditative process, which through attentive thought, provides awareness of the world within and around you based on the current moment.

Once you have mastered the basic principles of Mindfulness, you can then direct this learning to assist you in mastering your thoughts and emotions.  As you learn about this part of your being, you realise the true and hidden potential of your Life Force. Through the combination of your Life Force energies to focus the intentions of your Mindfulness activities, you can reach new levels of understanding and achieve greater wellbeing in your life.

Pure Attention

Pure attention is one of the highest forms of intellect. Often as humankind, we dive into the muddy water of emotional entanglements as we try to conquer or control things in our lives.  When instead, our best course of action would have been to pause, then become observant. As you try to understand something, it is usually best to set aside your preconceptions and observe it through the quietness of mind. This way, your observation will reveal what needs to be comprehended or understood.

Pure attention without judgment is not only the highest form of human intelligence, but also the expression of harmlessness. Take the time to observe through the quietness of mind.

Comprehending your Mind

Stop and take the time to realise the complexities of your mind, so that you may comprehend how to change your way of thinking. Take the time to consider that your mental mind, with its patterns of thinking and passive intellect, can be your biggest challenge in life.  Your mind can bring forward thoughts, reactions, feelings and emotions from your experiences.

How many times in your life have you been motivated or enthusiastic as you aspire to achieve or change aspects in your life, such as: a healthy lifestyle, travel, study, starting a new business, saving more money, or changing aspects of yourself regarding the home, work or family relationships? Yet in a short time, you find yourself falling back into your old patterns of behaviour and thinking. Without realising it, you have let the pre-programmed aspects or passive intellect of your mind take control of your life, setting you up to fall back to previous patterns of behaviour or failures of your best-laid plans.

Take control of your life by gaining an understanding of your mind and your reactions. Through being able to bring calmness and balance within you, it is then possible to resonate to a different frequency to make decisions and evaluate situations more clearly.

Reinvigorate your Mindfulness

In today’s modern world, many of us have stopped noticing many aspects of the world within and around us, especially when we live busy lives. It is all too easy to lose touch with the sensations of life and living, to become someone who acts purely through the conditioned thinking of our passive intellect to the various stimuli in life.

You do not have to change who you are or alter your beliefs to become more self-aware with active intellect. We all have the capacity to be mindful, to pay attention to and be aware of the present moment. Reinvigorate your mindfulness pursuits to bring about the change within you by focusing on your true intentions with Life Force mindfulness.

Take a Hike

Walking has been used as a conduit for spiritual development for thousands of years. More recently, people have begun to rediscover the simple pleasure of walking and have found it illuminating. A walk can be incorporated into a break at work or at other times of the day. If you are feeling stressed, taking a walk can usually ease the pressure, often bringing a new perspective to the situation. Just getting up and taking a short walk around the block can diffuse a situation and can have a beneficial impact on your day.

The simple act of going for a walk, enables you to have a change of scenery, often enabling you to be more mindful or take a different perspective. As you walk, try to be more aware of the sensations within your body, such as the movement of your feet or arms as well as your breathing. You can also be more mindful of the world around you, hearing the sounds which continually waft into your ears, the temperature of the air on your face and the smells which fill your nostrils. So why not take some time out and go take a hike into the outdoors and avail yourself of the opportunity to be more mindful, to take a break and refocus on the important things in life.

Become Aware

How many times do we look back at situations in our lives and recognise that, with hindsight, we could have acted or reacted differently? If you become aware of your thoughts, emotions and feelings, then you have the opportunity to no longer become lost in these aspects. When you are angry, be aware of your anger. If you become stressed, be aware of your stress. When you become annoyed or irritated, be aware of your irritation.

As soon as you become aware of these thoughts, emotions or feelings, you have the opportunity to choose how to act or react. Your awareness allows you to become mindful as you witness these aspects as if you were viewing them from the outside looking in. Once you are aware, you can pause, then make a choice to change your way of thinking or react differently.

What are Emotions?

People often wonder: What is the basis of emotions which seem to rule many people’s lives? At the most basic level, emotions are lower level responses occurring within areas of the brain and mental form, in response to stimuli and thoughts. Emotions themselves are often short-lived, but lead to longer-term mental associations. Over time, your emotional responses are subjectively blended with personal experience, beliefs and memories to create your feelings.

Some people may still question mindfulness as New Age thinking, but numerous mindfulness techniques have become part of business and healthcare services, to help people deal with the challenges of daily life.

However, for many people, these benefits lay unrealised as the various techniques do not deliver on the original intent. For others, mindfulness often lays abandoned on the scrapheap like last year’s resolutions. Focus on the true intentions of your Life Force to boost your mindfulness.

How your Mind Controls your Life

Very few of us understand, nor comprehend, how much we become completely involved with our strong thoughts and emotional reactions in our lives. Being so involved, we never have the opportunity to consider that it is our mind, which creates a very large percentage of the sickness, unhappiness, fear and even depression.

In life, you have the choice of how you react. Through active intellect, you can choose to stay balanced and in control, or you respond by sliding into pre-programmed patterns of thinking, excuses and the emotional reactions of your passive intellect. Take the opportunity to pause and reflect on how thoughts and emotional reactions may be affecting you, then make choice to bring about a change.

What is Harmlessness?

Harmlessness instils a strength of purpose and volition within your life for full attainment of your intentions. Harmlessness achieved through illumement springs from the control of your passive intellect, and through the understanding of your mind and persona.

True harmlessness works through right thought, governed by active intellect; right speech, governed by self-control and manifest into right action. This inevitably leads to a higher expression of yourself into your everyday life. Consider how to incorporate harmlessness into your everyday life.
