New and transformative ways of life are determined
And to be clear, I define a "new and transformative way of life" as:
1) Which allows us to exploit our higher self and broaden our view of life and the world around us in a significant and positive way?
2) Which in turn enables us to convert negative or commonly learned beliefs and behaviors into positive understandings and productive responses and actions, and
3) What ultimately enables us to live with inner peace and tranquility and significantly and positively affects every aspect of our lives.
Let us explain the importance of attention
Unfortunately for many, these beliefs and behaviors are often misunderstood, ignored, or may not be far from reality. However, the purpose of this article is to explain these relatively new but ancient beliefs and behaviors to as many people as possible.
"Practicing mindfulness is more than just being aware of the moment. It involves and facilitates the development of focus, wisdom, and the ability to make healthy choices that promote true happiness and meaningful life.
A much deeper level of understanding
The quote above illustrates attention on a much deeper level than most people's understanding. Living in the moment is indeed very important and this helps us to focus on real-time on what is happening in our lives.
