Lovely Mindfulness Quote

Found this on Old Path Sangha‘s site:

Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and awake to the present moment. It is the continuous practice of seeing and relating deeply to every moment of daily life. To be mindful is to be truly alive, present and at one with those around you and with what you are doing. We bring our body and mind into harmony with the activities of our daily living. With practice, our mindfulness becomes more joyful, relaxed and steady.

This is the great gift and privilege of participating in the Sangha (community of those who practice together). We are bells of mindfulness for each other, supporting and reminding each other along the path of practice. With the support of the community, we can practice to cultivate peace and joy within and around us, as a gift for all of those whom we love and care for. We can cultivate our solidity and freedom – solid in our deepest aspiration and free from our fears, misunderstandings and our suffering.

Thought this was apropos to my current vein of contemplation….
