Mindfulness

Mindfulness is also ever present witnessing awareness. It is the stillness in which we find ourself.
In stillness, I find my true self.
Today, I offer my thoughts to the service of spirit.
I will use my thoughts wisely and respect their power.
Consciously bring everyone you know into your awareness. See them coming together in a town square. Imagine that you are the leader of this gathering with the power to hurt or benefit anyone you wish. Now look over all the faces gazing up at you and say, “I will use my power wisely.”
In this promise, you acknowledge your role in everyone’s healing.
Today, I offer my thoughts to the service of spirit.
In stillness, I find my true self.
As you go about your day, be mindful of your awareness. Sometimes it will be restless and active.
This usually occurs when outside events pressen asking for reactions. But other times your awareness will be stilled within itself.
You will watch instead of act.
You will become the ever present witnessing awareness.
You will find yourself being the observer; and from the perspective of your soul — that is who you really are. Activity comes and goes but the observer is steady and ever present.
As you begin to identify with the observer, you will become less attached to things that change.
The unchanging is truly who you are.
In stillness, I find my true self.
Today, I offer my thoughts to the service of spirit.
I will use my thoughts wisely and respect their power.
