Intriguing Mindfulness: Ms.Nava's Unique Perspective

Mindfulness, a concept open to interpretation, holds a special place in the heart of Ms. Nava. It all starts with nurturing a healthy mind that accepts the uniqueness of every individual's perspective. While academic theories and findings on mindfulness offer a wealth of knowledge, they also invite discussion, disagreement, and debate. Yet, the ultimate choice is ours, shaped by the workings of our own minds. For a deeper dive into my version of mindfulness, let's explore it together. Mindfulness (The Abundance Of Mindfulness), in my view, begins with an understanding of what transpires within and around us. It encompasses our thoughts, emotions, feelings, and how we perceive the world. This mental landscape  (Mental Health) is intimately connected to the heart, where we discover more about ourselves and our interpretations of the external world. In my perspective, the two are intertwined.

Awareness of your inner thoughts and emotions is the first step toward understanding yourself. Only through this self-awareness can you broaden your perspective. As I like to say, you gain an "umbrella view" or a "helicopter view" that reveals intricate connections. This viewpoint serves as a reminder that, before we rush to judge ourselves or others, we must consider the bigger picture. Otherwise, we risk being judgmental, labeling, and branding, often without knowing the full story. Mindfulness grounds us, keeping us rooted to the earth instead of soaring too high, believing ourselves to be superior to others.

Furthermore, mindfulness helps shed our egos, social statuses, power, and positions, guiding us back to the fundamental principle of humanity. In today's fast-paced world, where success, power, wealth, and materialism dominate conversations and can breed jealousy and envy, mindfulness remains at the core. It not only grounds us but also encourages gratitude for what we have, rather than perpetual comparison.

Admittedly, practicing mindfulness is challenging. Social conditions often prioritize fame and fortune, while those who prefer simplicity and an average life may be seen as less successful. However, the choice is ours, and I proudly embrace an average life, prioritizing happiness and love. I work to meet my financial needs and, when there's a surplus, I treat myself. My mindfulness centers around what I desire for myself and my life, rather than interfering in others' affairs or bringing them down.

These are the principles that guide my mindfulness journey. I have more insights to share in upcoming posts. For now, I encourage you to contemplate my interpretation of mindfulness and consider what it means to you. Your principles need not align with mine, and that's perfectly acceptable. Rest assured, there's no right or wrong way to interpret mindfulness - it's a deeply personal and unique journey for each of us."
