Mindful Monday :: Body Awareness


The sensations of your body are always unfolding in the present moment.

Your beating heart, the feeling of your feet in your shoes on the ground, the texture of your clothes on your skin are all bridges to bring your Inner Attention out of your Chattering Mind and back into the present moment.

Practice :: When you “wake up” to the fact that your Inner Attention is lost in your Chattering Mind, kindly invite your Inner Attention to the feeling of your whole body.

Feel your feet in your shoes placed firmly on the ground.

Feel the wind and sun on your skin.

Feel the sensation of your palms resting on your legs.

As you experience the feeling of your body, stay grounded in the openness of your Open Mind.

Bravely live into, with your Inner Attention, the spaciousness of your Open Mind.
