Awareness is the gold mine of mindfulness. Whether struggling with physical or emotional pain, awareness is the place you arrive when you accept the moment exactly as it is. Without resistance, you release any desire to control the moment and land in grace: a field of compassionate intelligence.
Like a mother who soothes her child, providing compassion, peace and perspective, you too can rest within your heart to find comfort and reassurance for yourself. Cultivate mindfulness in your heart and nurture the part of you that suffers as if caring for your own child. Treat yourself with the same kindness you would offer another. Compassion has no limits and knows no boundaries.
