15 Quotes on Mindfulness and Just Being

Quote: Mindfulness is all-helpful. -- Buddha

Life is so colourful and exciting when you are aware of it from moment-to-moment. However, most of us are so busy in our lives that we hardly give ourselves a moment to reflect on the beauty of the moment.

The practice of mindfulness is one way to become aware of all that life has to offer in your day to day living. Paying full attention to what is in the present moment creates a sense of calm and centeredness. Paying attention also produces energy which will help you get through the day feeling good rather than feeling overwhelmed with a million things to do. Here is a collection of quotes that I have found inspiring and helpful in strengthening my resolve to continue my mindfulness meditation practice:

Mindfulness is the awareness that is not thinking but is aware of thinking, as well as of each or the other ways we experience the sensory world; that is, seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling and feeling through the body. Mindfulness is nonjudgemental and openhearted. – Jeff Brantley

Mindfulness is the key to the present moment. – Joseph Goldstein

Tell me to what you pay attention and I will tell you who you are. – Jose Ortega Y Gasset, Spanish Philosopher

Don’t hurry enjoy the present moment. Smile oft. Speak gently. Be Kind. – Edgar Cayce

Wisdom is the art of living happily, much of that art comes from seeing how we live unhappily. – Larry Rosenberg

Mindfulness is all-helpful. – The Buddha

Just as trees shed their leaves in winter and renew themselves, the mind can shed its prejudices, barriers and renew itself. – Radha Burnier

There is one thing we always need, and that is the watchman named mindfulness – the guard who is always on the lookout for when we get carried away by mindlessness.  – Tulku Urgyen, a Tibetan Master

We need to create a rhythm in our lives, establishing a balance between times when we are engaged, active, and relating to the world, and times when we turn inward. – Joseph Goldstein

The practice [of mindfulness] is for the whole of your life, not some part that is sectioned off and called spiritual. It is available for every moment. – Larry Rosenberg

Mindfulness makes no demands that we ‘change’, that life has to be different in any way, but rather works on a basis of acceptance, in a radical sense, of the present moment.Mindfulness for Busy People by Dr Michael Sinclair and Josie Seydel

Mindfulness is like a microscope; it is neither an offensive nor defensive weapon in relation to the germs we observe through it. The function of the microscope is just to clearly present what is there. – Chogyam Trungpa

No change occurs if we just let our habitual tendencies and automatic patterns of thought perpetuate and even reinforce themselves, thought after thought, day after day, year after year. But those tendencies and patterns can be challenged. – Matthieu Ricard

All of human unhappiness comes from one single thing: not knowing how to remain at rest in a room. – Blaise Pascal

The difficult thing about practice isn’t learning to sit for an hour, or sit for a weekend, or go on a three-month retreat, as hard as those things are. The difficult thing is to pay attention to what is happening right here and now. – Larry Rosenberg
