Be Generous In Practising Mindfulness.

The enthusiasm for mindfulness makes sense: Research shows mindfulness can reduce stress, increase self-esteem, and decrease symptoms of mental illness.

Common Humanity Meditation

  • Build compassion and interconnection by seeing your similarities with others

The effects of mindfulness can be different for people depending on the way they think about themselves. This figurative “water” can really change the recipe of mindfulness.

Of course, water can be filtered, and, likewise, how people think about themselves is fluid: We’re all independent to decide how we think.

Mindfulness And Selfishness

Mindfulness has various mental and psychological benefits like increased concentration, better memory, better self-control and a decrease in emotional reactiveness, allowing us to handle our problems in a calm manner.

However, the focus of a mindful person is inward, and that can translate into increased egotism and selfishness in some people.

Mindfulness meditation made easy!
Settle in
  • Find a quiet space. Using a cushion or chair, sit up straight but not stiff; allow your head and shoulders to rest comfortably; place your hands on the tops of your legs with upper arms at your side.
Now breathe
  • Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and relax. Feel the fall and rise of your chest and the expansion and contraction of your belly. With each breath notice the coolness as it enters and the warmth as it exits. Don't control the breath but follow its natural flow.
Stay focused
  • Thoughts will try to pull your attention away from the breath. Notice them, but don't pass judgment. Gently return your focus to your breath. Some people count their breaths as a way to stay focused.
Take 10
  • A daily practice will provide the most benefits. It can be 10 minutes per day, however, 20 minutes twice a day is often recommended for maximum benefit.

True mindfulness has been spoiled by an imposter. The imitation provides an excuse to be self-centered and self-indulgent. It promises health and spiritual purity.
