The modern world is overloaded with various, often not the right information. Therefore, the average person pays little attention to anything, including, for himself, his body and his mind. Even starting to engage in spiritual practice, and most continue to somewhere inside "run" — a lot of practice, steps, events, activities, sights …
Because of this "mechanical" approach unconscious lost not only the essence of spiritual practice, but also the understanding of life. For anyone who is seriously engaged in spiritual practice, mindfulness — the main, key practice leading to the awakening of consciousness. It must pass through the center line of our lives and manifest in all that we do. It is through awareness, not only spiritual practice, but also any action, decision or action will be as harmonious, efficient, accurate and meaningful. If this still does not work or has a lack of harmony, you just need to enter into a state of awareness. This is the fastest and easiest way out of any situation.
So what is mindfulness?
Slavic Vedic tradition teaches that awareness is vigorous, clear state of mind, continuous care in every moment of his life. This kind of awakening of consciousness in which "normal" state "run" it seems kind of crazy dream. Mindfulness appears that all the attention is entirely focused on the action that takes place exactly at the moment. In this case, you do not wander in their thoughts, and volume, fully perceive the situation. Because of this, the person is in full contact reality that he creates in the moment.
If we are not in a state of awareness, then our minds replace it with their mental images. That is, we look at the world, but instead see their usual patterns of perception. Our mind is "missing" part of the event and he dorisovyvaet details.
That's why we live in a kind of illusion — in the fog of his thoughts. And the fog does not give us the full impact of reality. As a consequence, there is a big difference between what we think and what we have in reality. Usually it is clearly visible from the outside and poorly perceived by us personally. Often, to get us out of the state of illusion, need a teacher, a master who really understands the essence of things.
Being in a state of awareness, we focus not on the thoughts about what is happening, but in the action that is happening at the moment. In this case, such an approach should be — when I'm in the Temple or the temple, I am in prayer (spiritual practice), and do not think about the beauty of the surrounding vestments or women / men. When I play with the kids, I'm playing with the children, and not think about work when I'm at work I work, and do not worry about how to pass the weekend. Such an approach should be in everything, in every act and deed. Awareness — is the most important, the highlight of any activity, which leads us to the awakening of the soul and spiritual growth.
