the attentive awareness of living in the present moment
MetaPhysics of Prosperity
Peace of Mind
Mindfulness is one of the seven factors of enlightenment. It is a spiritual path to enlightenment
according to the teaching of the Buddha. "Correct" or "right" mindfulness (the seventh element of the noble
eightfold path) is the attentive awareness of the reality of things, especially of the present moment.
Mindfulness is the state of being in which greed, hatred and delusion have been overcome, abandoned and are
absent from the mind.
Mindfulness - Philosophy & Spirituality
Mindfulness applies to bodily actions as well as the mind's own thoughts and feelings. Mindfulness is the practice whereby a person is intentionally aware of his or her thoughts and actions in the present moment. Mindfulness is a prerequisite for developing insight and wisdom.
Mindfulness is an activity that can be done at any time. You simply observe the moment in which you find yourself without judging, reflecting or thinking. It is the path which allows you to be taught and then teach.
It can be done while sitting, or standing. It can be the focusing on the breath, but mostly, it is the bringing of the mind to focus on what is happening in the present moment, while simply noticing the mind's usual "commentary".
Mindful of the mind's commentary: "I wish I didn't have to walk any further, I like the sound of the leaves rustling, I wish washing dishes wasn't so boring and the soap wasn't drying out my skin", etc.
Any activity done mindfully is a form of meditation. One can be mindful of the sound of the wind in the trees, of the sensations in one's feet while walking, or the feeling of the soapy water while doing dishes.
As we closely observe inner reality, we find that happiness is not a quality brought about by a change in outer circumstances. It starts with by realizing our own "mindless" unhappiness. Therefore, it's the automatic reactions toward pleasant and unpleasant situations or feelings.
"Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change..."

Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life [Paperback]
Thich Nhat Hanh (Author), Arnold Kotler (Editor), H. H. the Dalai Lama (Foreword)
In the rush of modern life, we tend to lose touch with the peace that is available in each moment. World-renowned Zen master, spiritual leader, and author Thich Nhat Hanh shows us how to make positive use of the very situations that usually pressure and antagonize us. For him a ringing telephone can be a signal to call us back to our true selves. Dirty dishes, red lights, and traffic jams are spiritual friends on the path to "mindfulness"—the process of keeping our consciousness alive to our present experience and reality. The most profound satisfactions, the deepest feelings of joy and completeness lie as close at hand as our next aware breath and the smile we can form right now.
Lucidly and beautifully written, Peace Is Every Step contains commentaries and meditations, personal anecdotes and stories from Nhat Hanh's experiences as a peace activist, teacher, and community leader. It begins where the reader already is—in the kitchen, office, driving a car, walking a part—and shows how deep meditative presence is available now. Nhat Hanh provides exercises to increase our awareness of our own body and mind through conscious breathing, which can bring immediate joy and peace. Nhat Hanh also shows how to be aware of relationships with others and of the world around us, its beauty and also its pollution and injustices. the deceptively simple practices of Peace Is Every Step encourage the reader to work for peace in the world as he or she continues to work on sustaining inner peace by turning the "mindless" into the mindFUL.
