“Mindfulness isn’t difficult, we just need to remember to do it”- Sharon Saltzberg
We all are conscious beings and are supposed to know what we do. So far everything seems OK. Now, let’s engage in an exercise.
Try and focus only on yourself. Just watch out for your emotional response, actions, reactions, and thought process. During this time period, your mind should not dwell on any memory or future plans. All your attention should be deviated towards your present state and situation that you are in. For how long were you able to do it? Let me know your experience in the comment section.
We soon realize that most of the time our mind dwells upon past memories, recalling some old incident, or, making future plans and anticipating the future. Even when we are not thinking about any of them, we tend to overlook our thoughts and feelings. Since most of our attention is engaged by the external world, past, or future, we fail to feel or own presence without connecting with any of the above.
Since you are not consciously handling your emotions and thoughts, they are governed by your subconscious mind. The subconscious mind contains data about every positive and negative information or event that you come across and that further influences your thoughts and emotions. This can be witnessed by focusing upon the constant thoughts that you experience in the background and sudden eruption of positivity and negativity associated with it. This has a great impact on how your personality shapes eventually as I have already mentioned in my blog https://digurself.wordpress.com/2020/05/11/thought-leads-to-personality/. By being mindful of your presence, you can keep a check on your thoughts and feelings. This saves you a lot of unwanted negativity and stress.
