Living Mind is all about offering information on mindfulness meditation practices and group classes in Sydney. The aim is to educate people with information and resources on practices, tools and techniques.
Once you connect to focused concentration in mindfulness meditation practice, you can become the observer of inner thoughts, emotions and sensations. Freeing yourself from judgement whether a thought is positive or negative. As you pay attention moment to moment, you notice your awareness heightens as you let go of thoughts and feeling that arise. From watching your mind, you discover mental habits that either produce a state of well-being or a state of suffering. From this awareness, you can start to shift the balance of thoughts and make choices about how you would like to think and feel.
The challenge is to let go and not hold onto thoughts that take you down the past or future path in your mind. Instead, you stay present as the observer, even when the process is not comfortable or relaxing. In fact, the discomfort is like a signpost for you to breakthrough, continually reminding yourself to stay present and observe.
“Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different, enjoying the present without holding onto it when it changes (which it will) being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t).” John Kabat Zinn
