Being mindful means that we suspend judgement for a time, set aside our immediate goals for the future, and take in the present moment as it is rather than as we would like it to be.

Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally to things as they are.

When we have accepted ourselves, our vulnerabilities and our humanity, we can accept the humanity of others.

Mindfulness is awareness, cultivated by paying attention in a sustained and particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally.

Mindfulness is: paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgementally.
