Mindfulness meditation can be very healing and nourishing. It is an opportunity to be with whatever is present within us, without being carried away. Our mindful breathing is our anchor, and whenever thoughts arise, we accept them without judgement. We simply recognize them, smile to them and allow them to pass, like clouds moving across a windy sky.

By becoming the observer and being mindful of our thoughts, feelings and emotions, we dont get lost within them. Then, we have the chance to choose how to respond or act. So many of our problems, traumas, anxieties and fears are based in our minds, at times dwelling in the past or conditioned by the past and then negatively anticipating the future.

The decision to make the present moment into your friend is the end of the ego. The ego can never be in alignment with the present moment. Eckhart Tolle
