Through the practice of experiencing, we can feel some anxiety but not ‘be’ anxious.

Even brief moments by the clock, if we are really present for them with awareness, in being mode, are profoundly reorienting and healing.

Mindfulness is a way of shifting from doing to being, so that we take in all the information that an experience offers us before we act.

By cultivating the awareness of ‘being mode’ … we can sidestep the cascade of mental events that draws us down into depression.

By cultivating the awareness of ‘being mode’ … we might just open ourselves up to the limitless possibilities for happiness that life has to offer us.

By cultivating the awareness of ‘being mode’ we can get out of our heads and learn to experience the world directly, experientially, without the relentless commentary of our thoughts.

Being mode is the antidote to the problems that the doing mode of mind creates.

Compassion doesn’t need to justify itself — it is its own reason for being.

For all of us, love can be the natural state of our own being; naturally at peace, naturally connected.

It is all too easy to fall into becoming more of a human doing than a human being.

Mindfulness can become an effortless, seamless element of our life, a way for our very being to express itself authentically.
