There are many misconceptions about mindfulness. One of the most common is the false understanding that one will be free of chaos. The truth is regardless what we do in life, chaos happens. Chaos is a normal and natural part of the human experience. With mindfulness however, we consciously choose to stay present in the moment and maintain neutrality. This requires detachment and not engaging with thoughts, stories or inner dialogue that do not benefit self or others.
For instance, if you find yourself in a challenging environment, you would simply accept the current circumstances as they are and focus on releasing any judgements and negative energy that arises. In doing so, you can stay grounded and centred in the moment and refine your capacity to float gracefully through the waves of life!
