PONDER on THIS for Thursday, May 17th, 2012 by Donald Altman in THE MINDFULNESS CODE

“The next time you feel impatient or ill at ease, pause right where you are and don’t be so quick to run off to something else. Instead, simply notice whatever feelings (perhaps frustration, impatience, boredom) or thoughts precede your rejection of denial of a situation. You might ask yourself, “What is this that I’m experiencing?” See if you can accept each moment for what it is. The means not that you have to avoid judging, which is almost impossible, but that you notice your judging. To do this, even for a moment, is to sharpen your awareness and nurture a willingness to accept what is present in your life. How wondrous!”    

                   Donald Altman, in “The Mindfulness Code”
