Mindful Living

“A mind is a terrible thing to waste,” says the United Negro College Fund.  A slogan I not only agree with but would add, a mind is a hard thing to discipline. 

You see, even though, the mind can’t stand alone without the body, our mind moves at a lightning pace. Without discipline, it has a tendency, more likely than not, to distract us. 

For instance, in the span of reading this blog, has your mind wondered?  Maybe to events happened earlier in the day or to something coming later?

Aligning the mind and body (i.e. to be aware what you’re doing or thinking) is key to a mindful living. This alignment brings living to the present moment.  Not the past nor the future.

But that’s easier said than done.  Why?  Because the discipline of the mind takes time and practice.  Lots of practices.  Some of the successful examples meditate daily and have been so for DECADES!.

So it is not too late for the aspired to begin the practice.  Starting now.

Familiar with the term “Monkey Mind”?
