"Whereever you go, there you are."

Jon Kabat-Zinn

 

Lige præcis der, hvor du er lige nu, udspiller dit liv sig. Livet leves kun HER og NU. Deltager du ikke med din fulde opmærksomhed i den øjeblikkelige situation, give du afkald på dele af livet. Hav dig selv med, i alt hvad du foretager dig.

 

 

 

 

"Practice is not just sitting and meditating. Practice is looking, thinking, touching, drinking, eating and talking. Every act, every breath, and every step can be practice and can help us to become more ourselves."

Thich Nhat Hanh

 

Mindfulness er ikke kun en meditationsøvelse. Den uformelle træning spiller en lige så stor rolle - og vil med tiden udvikle sig til at blive "normaltilstanden". Den uformelle træning kan praktiseres mange gange hver dag. Vælg nogle handlinger, hvor du slår autopiloten fra og forsøger at være helt bevidst om hver eneste lille ting, der indgår i handlingen.

 

 

 

 

"This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and attend them all! Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in."

Rumi

 

"After darkness there is always light. Nothing lasts forever. So if things are good now, enjoy it. It won't last forever. If things are bad, don't worry because it won't last forever either. Every moment gives you a new beginning and a new ending. You get a second chance, every second. You just have to take it, and make the best of it."

Mød alle livets tilskikkelser, som de kommer. Med Mindfulness lærer du at acceptere, hvad der kommer. Intet varer evigt, hverken sorger eller glæder. Så træd et skridt tilbage og byd det, der kommer velkommen. Er det sorger og bekymringer, der dukker op, bliver de ikke mindre ved, at du graver dig ned i dem. Tværtimod. Accepter alle hændelser, som de viser sig - nu og her. På den måde oparbejder du mest muligt overskud til at leve livet fuldt ud.

 

 

 

 

"Wisdom comes with the ability to be still. Just look and just listen. No more is needed. Being still, looking and listening activates the non-conceptual intelligence within you. Let stillness direct your words and actions."

Eckhart Tolle

 

Brug alle dine sanser. Hav et åbent sind og vær parat til at modtage det, der kommer. Slå autopiloten fra, så du ikke straks reagerer "som du plejer". Hver situation er ny og fortjener at blive set og oplevet med et åbent og fordomsfrit sind.

 

 

 

 

"You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop."

Rumi

 

There is nothing you lack, because your essential nature is one of pure potentiality and infinite possibilities.

Deepak Chopra

 

Erkend, at du rummer hele verden i dig - og dermed alle muligheder. Stol på dig selv og mærk efter, hvad der føles rigtigt for dig. Det er den vej, du skal gå. Så vil verden ligge åben for dig, for du ER verden.

 

 

 

 

"If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at Peace you are living in the present."

Lao Tzu

 

"The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That's all there ever is."

Eckhart Tolle

 

Læg fortidens sorger bag dig. Fortiden er slut og eksisterer ikke mere. Derfor skal du ikke tynge dit sind med det. Lad dig ikke bekymre om fremtiden. Fremtiden er her ikke, og måske bliver der slet ikke noget at bekymre sig om. Kun dit sind vil i så fald have lidt under det - unødigt. Alt, hvad du har, er det liv, du lever lige her og nu. Fokuser på nuet, og du vil få ro i dit sind - og overskud til at glæde dig over NU og HER.
