Why is mindfulness important? It seems every week; I see an article talking about mindfulness. I feel I am mindful or at least I try. I meditate every day and try to remain in the present moment. Why do I do this? It is because of our minds, our ego based mind likes to dwell on the past or live in the future.
When we live in the past, it is usually with regrets. When we live in the future, it is usually filled with fear or anxiety. Even if we have optimistic thoughts about our future, there is anxiety. What “if” it does not happen as we project or want?
Sometimes the present moment is unbearable or painful. It is our attachment or judgment that creates more pain or unhappiness. If we just accept the present moment, just let it be and then take action. Being mindful allows you the space to find solutions to life’s problems.
