between two television commercial breaksyou can build a lifetime meditation practice Time magazine calls it the most American form of meditation yet.BEGINNINGS This years Super Bowl will be played in New Jersey, but it looks as if the Seattle Seahawks will have the ohm team advantage, as head coach Pete Carroll encourages all his players to meditate daily.ABC NEWS, JANUARY 2014YOU COULDNT HAVE CHOSEN a exciting time to discover meditation, the path to mindfulness, and a happier life.It seems that everyone is meditating these days, from publishing moguls like Rupert Murdoch to the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks Theyre even calling it The Mindfulness Revolution.Its now than ten years since the original publication of 8 Minute Meditation Meditation has come a long way from Zen monks sitting and staring at white walls in silence The decade has been nothing short of transformational, exciting, and revolutionary for the practice of meditation to develop mindfulness.Meditation and mindfulness have gone mainstream, featured in magazines like Fortune, Forbes, and Vogue, online in the New York Times and Huffington Post, and instantly available on your mobile device It seems not a day goes by where you wont see meditation mentioned in the media somewhere and in some contextnot as something flaky, eccentric, or countercultural, but something totally American Why Because the focused and present you are, the happier and less stressed you can be.Meditation is now taught everywhere, from grade schools to medical schools Entertainers like Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres meditate before they perform Its also being used by such diverse institutions as Procter Gamble and the US Marine Corps.But meditation is not just for celebrities, CEOs, and professional athletes Meditation and its resultant mindfulness are incredible tools that can be applied in every walk of life including yours Meditation and mindfulness are now part of the American culture, offering a path to better health, productivity, creativity, and physical and mental health.Right now, youre probably eager to start practicing mindfulness with 8 Minute Meditation But before we get down to the actual program, lets take a few minutes and explore the skills youre going to develop Doing so may give you ideas of your own as to how to utilize meditation and apply it to your own life.Lets begin with meditation.MEDITATION THE PORTAL TO MINDFULNESSIn my opinion, meditation is the simplest, most powerful tool ever devised for the cultivation of mindfulness It is indeed the portal to mindfulness.While it might be possible to develop mindfulness without a meditation practice, it certainly would be the hard way, kind of like learning to ride a bike without training wheels Training wheels, as we know, let you learn to ride with a minimum of scraped knees and frustration So think of meditation as training wheels for your mind that will allow you to optimally develop mindfulness.A Definition of Meditation Allowing What IsLegend has it that the Buddha taught 83,000 methods of meditation That may or may not be true, but the bottom line is that, if he did, those 83,000 instructions would probably have included Allow what is For it is this allowing that makes it possible to connect with mindfulness.How to AllowMeditation affords you a constant opportunity to allow what is Each 8 Minute Meditation technique is designed to help you develop this skill When you meditate, even for 8 minutes, you reinforce the practice of allowing anything and everything that arises in your mind and body to do so, without intervening, judging, or manipulating it.Note that allowing what is is not something you do once and then youre done allowing what is is a skill developed by repetition Thats why meditation is called a practice Why is this Why does the mind have such difficulty accepting and allowing what is The answer might be found by taking a look at what your mind thinks is its job to alleviate your unhappiness and suffering To accomplish this, your mind will manipulate, cajole, intimidatein short, do whatever needs to be done to make you happy This constant thinking, judging, and evaluating is what my friend Marc Lerner calls mind made reality Of course, it never really does the trick, because theres only so much you can do to mentally control and manipulate the world to the perfect state you think you desire.So how do you achieve real happiness Like Ive said Allow what is 8 Minute Meditation comes with a set of Operating Instructions And perhaps the most important one is allow, allow, allow, a variation of the first rule of real estate location, location, location Make allow, allow, allow your mantra slogan and you will change your life.WHAT IS MINDFULNESS AND WHATS IN IT FOR YOU Mainstream magazines and books are devoting increasingly space to mindfulness Its been defined as everything from presence to The Now to being in the moment Although this is exciting, it can also be confusing You might come away from your readings with thoughts like What is mindfulness anyway What makes mindfulness so great Whats in it for me How do I get it These are excellent and important questions, particularly if you have an interest in developing a mindfulness practice So lets take a look at them.A Definition of MindfulnessWhat does the word mindfulness mean Is it a noun a quality or a verb an activity This isnt a sixth grade grammar lesson or a word game its fundamental to understanding mindfulness.The dictionaries say that mindfulness is a quality and therefore a noun This may be grammatically correct, but it can cause confusion, giving the impression that mindfulness is some thing to add to your inventory, like a new Honda or iPhone.In my opinion, the better view of mindfulness is that it is a verb that expresses an actionthe action of allowing Allowing what is to be just as it is Moment by moment Experience by experience Breath by breath.So for the purposes of 8 Minute Meditation, we will define mindfulness as this Mindfulness is allowing what is.Your next question might be What does allowing what is do for me For starters, when you allow what is, you are present, here, in the Moment Here means that you are residing in this moment, observing and allowing everything that is arising in your senseswhether you are meditating on a mountaintop or making a tuna fish sandwich in your kitchen Youre not, as author Josh Baran says, elsewhere and elsewhen.Right now I can hear you saying, Whats the big deal Im here right now Matter of fact, Im always here Well, arent I To see if this is true, lets do a short investigation into this thing called mindfulness.Investigation Mindfulness Note This is a two part exercise Read the instructions and then put down your book to do it Gently close your eyes.PART ONE For the next minute or so, simply watch your thoughts Just let them come and go. As you do this, note how much of your thinking is occupied with the past or the future In other words, notice how often you are elsewhere or elsewhen. Gently open your eyes, pause, take a breath, and close them again.PART TWO For the next couple of minutes, summon up the experience of something you really love This could be anything from viewing a Matisse, hearing the sound of Joni Mitchells voice, or maybe something as simple as tasting your favorite chocolate. As you immerse yourself in this experience, focus full attention on what you are doing Really see those vibrant colors, hear Jonis sublime voice, taste that divine chocolate. When youre done, gently open your eyes.Good work Now, lets compare Part One and Part Two In which part did you feel grounded More present More here In which part were you relaxed In which part did you experience mind chatter and thinking In which state would you prefer to live If you found a preference for Part Two, youre not alone This is a mindful state, the state of being here.Mindfulness Whats in It for Me Right now, you might be thinking, Okay, all this is interesting, but how is being mindful going to change my life and make me a better person, productive and successful And of course, how does it answer the question that is always in the forefront of our minds Can mindfulness make me happier You also might be thinking, Well, this moment isnt so great Someone dinged my new car, I just broke up a five year relationship, and my job security is nil In fact, I dont just dislike this moment I hate it Okay, I hear you So stoptake a deep breath And relax What is it that is making you so upset Is it the Moment you just experienced in our earlier investigation Or is it the events that are occurring in this moment This is a bit challenging, but stick with me here This isnt a lesson in linguistics That capital M makes a difference Because it lets you see exactly where you are right now mindfully present in the Moment, or lost in the content of the moment, with thoughts primarily about the past or future.Your experience of life is determined by where you focus your attention If you focus on content, i.e., the thoughts, images, and feelings arising right now, your attention is lost in a world of judging things as good, bad, or neutrala real roller coaster ride.However, when you focus on being in the Moment you can directly experience a spaciousness that embraces and includes all the happenings and events arising in the here and now And in this spaciousness, you can experience the basic peace, clarity, and insight that is your birthrightthe aliveness of the Moment Right here Right now.Other writers and teachers describe the Moment in their own ways Eckhart Tolle says Most people confuse the Now with what happens in the Now, but thats not what it is Do not confuse the content of this moment with the Now. British nonduality teacher Jeff Foster says Remembering who you really are involves a subtle shift of attention from a tense present to the present tense.Now pause, take another deep breath, and just settle into your body Does the Moment sound like a place youd like to live in What could be better than to be mindful and clear and nonjudging Like I say, living in the Moment is your birthright It is not some special state reserved for a select spiritual few, or vegetarians, or longtime meditators The truth is that the Moment is already presentand has always been The Moment is always ready to meet you, whenever and wherever you are ready to receive it.Mindfulness The Path to Real HappinessThe Dalai Lama puts it simply The goal of life is to be happy And heaven knows we try everything we can to make that so, from acquiring new cars to new lovers to better homes and gardens And while material things may provide temporary satisfaction, inevitably objects and circumstances change Which means youre usually never happy for long.Is there another path to real happiness The answer is yes Mindfulness a way to happiness that arises from open acceptance of whatever is arising right here and right now This is an unshakable happiness independent of conditions, external happenings, and your never ending internal story This happiness, independent of conditions, affords you an unshakable vantage point from which to deal with your daily life no matter what arises, good, bad, or ugly.If this sounds like something you want, youre in the right place to begin your journey to mindfulness.MINDFULNESS TODAYAs I mentioned at the beginning, theres a mindfulness revolution happening And I think it is the result of a perfect storm in our current civilization that includes Easier and wider access to mindfulness and meditation instruction People realizing the benefits of mindfulness in their professional and personal interactions and communication The desire to find better ways to adapt to a lightning speed culture and an increasingly complex, technology dominated world The understanding that mindfulness can be applied to corporate and other nontraditional settings to increase productivity, reduce stress, and allow innovative insightsLets look at a few current examples of the Mindfulness Revolution.New Delivery Systems for MindfulnessMobile and audio courses and other Internet technologies now make it possible for anyone to access mindful meditation instruction, anytime and anywhere.More and people are accessing mindfulness through smartphones Mobile apps like Simply8 www.simply8.com guide students through a daily, three week meditation program The Huffington Posts GPS for the Soul even contains a built in heart sensor to alert you when youre calm or stressed.The Internet also offers a wide variety of opportunities to learn mindfulness and meditation For example, well known mindfulness teacher Shinzen Young offers an extensive free website, www.basicmindfulness.org, where you can also register for his once a month Basic Mindfulness Practice Programs that include guided meditation instruction and interactive participation.Mindfulness and Health CareMany of the nations hospital systems, such as Kaiser Permanente and Aetna, now offer classes in mindfulness meditation to patients as part of their wellness programs And this is than altruistic in light of new evidence that mindfulness practice can result in both physical and mental health benefits, not to mention cost savings.The hospital setting for mindfulness isnt just limited
