What is the meaning of mindfulness meditations?
To be mindful is to simply be aware of whatever exists in the present moment. It might entail awareness of all five senses, of the breath, of the physical body, of the emotional body, or of any other form of energy that is noticeable to us. It does not require us to get anywhere or to change anything; rather, it is a deep acceptance for anything present, from pleasant to unpleasant experience or sensation.
Mindfulness meditations are not about achieving any desired outcome – even though desirable outcomes are likely to be the result with continued practice. Mindfulness practice is about harnessing our present-moment capacity to sit with whatever is arising. It is a “tuning into”, or a “turning towards”; it is an opening to everything, allowing anything and everything to be compassionately witnessed without judgment.
Most of us come into mindfulness through our own personal challenges and suffering. Whether our own mindfulness journey has been forged by experiences of stress, anxiety, trauma, pain, insomnia, or anything else, we hold first hand experience of the more challenging aspects of what it means to be human.
