Mindfulness and Awareness makes the World Vivid and Alive

Settling the mind by attending to the present moment brings a certain relaxation. Relaxation creates space in which to see what is happening in the moment. As the mind settles and becomes more focused, it naturally expands, and we receive the total environment.

    Dear Irini, thank you so much for this charming refinement.
    Maybe when we go back to the original words in the languages of Buddhas time: sati/smrti, we can see how translation of the Dharma in english has had its consequences. Sati/smrti were translated into mindfulness and awareness, but seem to point to “recollecting wisdom” and right mindfulness (the eight-fold path).
    Wishing you joy and happiness!
