Today's selection on FREEDOM comes from mindfulness coach Leigh Tremaine. He writes,
"Mindfulness sets us free by interrupting the automatic process of reactivity, and by bringing conscious awareness to what would otherwise be a largely unconscious behaviour pattern. Mindfulness gives us the free choice of where to place our attention, rather than letting that attention be taken hostage by reactive thoughts and emotions. Once we have full choice where to place our attention, we can choose our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings freely, and choose how we behave, from the perspective of our authentic self. Mindful, authentic living then becomes possible, and so does a more peaceful, sustainable, and fulfilling world."
