Just as mindfulness is the opposite of meditation, mindfulness is the opposite of intention. Mindfulness is the act of noticing something in the moment, which is the result of intention. I love the idea of “intention” being the opposite of “mindfulness”. We can start with mindfulness, which is the act of noticing something in the moment, which is the result of intention. We can start with intention, which is the result of mindfulness.
This seems rather obvious, but most of us are so caught up in the rush of our day that we rarely stop to notice what we’re doing or what we can do. For example, if you are taking a selfie, you’re doing it in the moment.
And that’s the problem. We are constantly interrupted by what we want to do but don’t get the chance to do, or what we want to do but don’t get the time to do. In contrast, people who practice mindfulness will be fully present, fully aware, and fully engaged in whatever it is they are doing at the time. This is the opposite of the busy-ness of the selfie-taking.
When you are practicing mindfulness and intention, you are focusing on what you want to do and how to make it happen. You are not distracted by what you are doing. You are not thinking about what you WANT to do or how you WANT to do it. You are not thinking about what you should be doing or not doing. You are not thinking about how you are feeling or thinking about how you feel. If you are practicing mindfulness and intention, you are not thinking about what you are doing.
The truth is that we don’t actually have to be in the same place at the same time. We don’t have to be doing the same thing or in the same place at the same time. We can sit in our own room and meditate on a thought, we don’t need to be at the same physical location at the same time.
We just need to sit and focus on one thought, we can sit and focus on a feeling.
This is a great way to meditate. Because it allows us to focus on the emotion or thought that we’re meditating on, and allows us to bring it up without judgement or distraction.
The idea is that when we sit in our own room, we are meditating on a thought. We can imagine what that thought is, and then focus on the feeling of that thought, and bring it up without judgement. That means we can bring up thoughts that we dont know are good or bad, but are only felt because we are meditating on a thought. This is a great way to meditate.
And like that, the internet could turn into a 24-hour mindfulness center.
The idea here is the same as the previous point. Meditation is about bringing it all up without judgement. When we meditate, we allow our thoughts to come up without judgment. We allow these thoughts to be felt without judgement. In the past, we would get caught up in our thoughts, and then we would try to be very quiet about it. In a meditation, we are not trying to be very quiet about it, we allow it to come up without judgement.
