Mindful meditation releases you from the noise of life and allows you to be present in the moment. It raises your awareness and brings a sense of peace and well-being. Through this form of meditation you can change your life in subtle and powerful ways.

You do not practice this type of meditation to create upheaval in your life or to make drastic changes. It is practiced to help you recognize “what is” in your life, right now, and live in the present.

It is easy to get caught up regretting what has happened in the past and worrying about what may happen in the future, and as a result,  lose the present. That is not living. It is mindlessly moving through life in limbo.

There are many “gurus” or meditation guides that can help you learn to meditate; but, I recommend Tom Cronin of The Stillness Project because his focus is on Mindful Meditation – living in the present moment. Tom Cronin is a Global Meditation Authority, Teacher, Life Mentor and Author.

Those who use Mindful Meditation on a daily basis do not hide their heads in the sand and ignore whatever is happening in their lives, they learn to love life as it is and to accept themselves as they are – warts and all.

Life happens! There are good things and bad things that happen to everyone. The peaceful moments that can be experienced through Mindful Meditation relieve you from the stress of wishing things were different. It gives you the clarity to realize that there is no need to want to be different than you are; or to live in different circumstances than those that surround you.

You cannot escape your circumstances. Yes, we all crave the “good” in life and embrace it with great joy when it happens – and are continually seeking that happiness. But . . . when the “bad” appears, we shun it, we run from it, and even pretend it isn’t happening. Unfortunately, we cannot run away from ourselves.

Mindful Meditation provides the quiet stillness in which you can look closely at what is happening in your life – right now – rather than fretting about what you wanted to happen and stewing about the life you don’t have. The stillness allows you to tap into your inner vision and through quiet observation develop a clarity that you do not normally have.

When you refuse to accept “what is” in life, and fight a constant battle in your mind about things you want to change, or would like to avoid – you cannot experience the good that surrounds you; and in fact, your inner battle makes the “bad” worse. Wasting mental and physical energy trying to escape your reality will drain you to the point of exhaustion – and changes nothing.

Through Mindful Meditation it is possible to learn to see the daily events of your life for exactly what they are . . . your life. This is the only way to gain acceptance of “what is.”

Mindful Meditation allows you to be completely present in your life – for all the moments, good and bad. It will give you the personal power to open your mind and heart to the point that you will be in control of your life – not of what happens, but how you interpret it and how you deal with it.

Tom Cronin’s Stillness Project will help you achieve this present state of mind. If you want to begin walking down a different path that is filled with peace, you can sign up to participate in an event that will join more than a million people in meditation at once.

You will feel empowered in many different areas of your life – your relationships, your health, your job, even your financial situation.

With acceptance and clarity, you will realize that there is no such thing as “good” and “bad” – there is only “What Is” and you will have the quiet strength to work with what you have.
