    INTENTIONAL LIVING: On Lesson 26

Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice.

    Tuesday Thoughts: On Mindfulness

    “The mind is its own place and in itself, can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.” – John Milton Another word that could replace mindfulness is awareness (in a self related way). When there is a direct, intuitive knowing of what you are doing while you are doing it. It is being conscious of what’s happening to both your mind and body, and familiar with the outside world as well. According to the numerous researches done on mindfulness, it has been proved to be essential and put to use by professionals in Counselling, Court rooms, Boardrooms, Schools, Prisons, Reform institutions, and hospitals across the world.
