Our breathing is with us wherever we go. No matter what we are doing, feeling, or experiencing. It is always available to help us reconnect our attention to the present moment.
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.
Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn. A cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind is not clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life. — a Chinese poem
