Each supports the other to build a healthier, happier, balanced and sustainable life. Mindfulness is a mind tool, a mental approach you learn to viewing yourself, your life, your reality, with clearer insight and understanding. Mindfulness is the ability to focus your mind, 100% in the present moment, non-judgementally at will. Just by stopping and focusing the mind in the moment, on purpose, the perceived stress you are carrying in your mind, of whatever you are reacting to or thinking about becomes diluted and less overwhelming.The anxiety, the negative emotions, the tiredness, the anger, the fears, the depressive feelings all slip into an acceptable soft focus of understanding and lose their overwhelming control of your life. It is truly magic the way mindfulness can help you 'view' yourself more clearly and kindly, with a ray of self-understanding and self compassion. This doesn't mean you don't have to deal with the issue at hand. Far from it ! This newly relaxed and focused mind is a potent advantage in sorting out your life, dealing with the issues, viewing the whole picture and taking positive, life enhancing actions. Mindfulness is not psycho-babble or a judgemental look at why your life is as it is.Mindfulness helps you be more yourself in this moment now, with a kindness of heart and care for yourself.

Happiness can come very much from positive psychology and positive thinking. As Shawn Achor says in his happiness advantage book, and on YouTube TED Talk, he says if we do just 4 use the simple things every day if we make one random act of kindness, if we do some meditation and sitting, if we have 3 positive thoughts of gratitude if we do some exercise, and before we go to bed at night the journal of positive experience a happy experience, 28 days we change our lives we will build a positive attitude and outlook in life.
Happiness is influenced when things are going well. Sadness comes when we feel we have a sense of loss. On the most superficial level, we find happiness in the positive and sadness and loss in the negative. If we are not careful we are like a rudderless boat in a rough sea, being tossed around by circumstance and chance.
Mindfulness helps us to gain a rudder and the sail, so that we can cross the oceans with a deep sense of purpose and direction. And as we sit and delve more deeply into ourselves through meditation so we find our compass, our purpose, our journey through this life.
When we sit and watch the clouds, when we watch the wind bend the branches in the tree twist the leaves we are watching our lives. Nothing is ever static, everything changes and moves, and happiness contentment and fulfilment comes from changing and moving with this life around us.
Two things in life we can be assured of. 1, life is not a straight line. 2, everything always changes and nothing ever stays the same.
Once we learn to dance with these laws of life, happiness becomes more real and deep within us. For the meditation is like a key to the doorway to the sacredness of our life it leads us to our senses, it leads us down can out into the spaciousness of now, well with clarity and intention we can discern effortlessly our path before us. Not by trying or owning, not by control or manipulation, put through listening and being trusting and acting from our hearts.
But for those of us who find it difficult to know the difference between the media-generated self and the authentic deep self then the journey can be very challenging.
However this path is open to everybody, it is one of life's opportunities, to find that happiness and well-being and sense of purpose, which is always available to us will we stop and listen to our sacred selves.
I urge you to find time every day to stand back from the fear-driven desperation of trying to succeed in this transient life of ours. As you stand back to stop and listen to yourself and all that is around you. And find that peace of mind, gentleness and happiness is already present within you.
Mindfulness and meditation are not anything, but just a prospective a state of mind, a view. When we stop our clever minds and open our conscious present moment, we will find all we have been looking for, but all there is at any time is the present moment. There is no future. For the future becomes the present moment, learn to live in the present moment and you are living in your future.

Often I use the word change as to the effects that mindfulness can bring to you.
On reflection, I think it's not so much a change, it's more just being.
Mindfulness releases you, within you which has always been there.
In practising mindfulness we do not try, it is not the use of a clever mind, the intellectual mind, the mind which is attempting to be something else. No, the mindfulness mind is the mind which is already there, within you. It is the consciousness, the Conscious awareness of just being present.
If only it were that simple.
Buddha said that with our thoughts so we create our world.
If you consider this quote, you realise how we set ourselves up, convince ourselves with our own thinking patterns. These patterns become fixed and soli as cornerstones of our reality, in the external world for all and any real change in our lives. Goals and desires and wants and needs for the new house, new car, new shoes, new partner, all will bring temporary pleasure which inevitably will be discarded and then you have to renew them all again and find it all somewhere else.
With mindfulness practice, being present is sitting gently and allowing, then you open up to that which you already are, and this in itself delivers complete just being. This doesn't preclude or stop you going out into the world and achieving and doing and having fun, meeting people, having a good job, partners, children, etc. It's just that in the quietness of the night in the solitude of yourself you can find a deeper sense of calm and being which is always available to you, giving you access to a depth of happiness joy and contentment. which then you can share with your family with your friends with the others with the world all through the act of sitting and doing nothing on purpose.
Compost transformation of the mind : the practical use of mindfulness
The practise of mindfulness is the art of making space within the mind. Compost transformation of the mind: the practical use of mindfulness. An internal spaciousness allows the ability to have insight into the way your mind and your consciousness is working.

The symptom is really not the cause. After 30 years of being an acupuncturist I truly realised that although people come to me to have their ailments relieved, my purpose is to find the cause of these symptoms and then treat the cause.
As when patients come with psoriasis and they just blame the skin and often think it is maybe something to do with their diet or the cream they put on their body, the soap powder in the washing machine. True it could be but far more likely it is their lifestyle, and the way they worry and are concerned about aspects of their life.
For our minds are so clever, and think so much, so often, we alter our internal biology and chemical balances, just by the way we think. Everything is connected, interconnected, the whole. You cannot take one aspect away and expect the body's system to carry on working as it did before.
A bit like taking one wheel off the car and saying I still have three wheels on the car it should be ok.
By practising mindfulness, we bring our clever mind into balance and use our consciousness to focus now in this present moment. For in the present moment things are as they are. Life is as it is. Nine times out of ten we are fine in this moment everything is ok In this moment. It's just the way we think about things and catastrophes about our life which make us distressed and worried and this makes life more difficult.
Coming back to the moment on purpose gives us insight and clarity. Practise this and change your life.
When we can focus our attention into this present moment life is is more gentle calm and rewarding. Why would this be? Because our minds create a lot of our problems, the clever projecting forward, the disappointment of looking back and the expectations of the future, all actually change our physiological and neurological chemicals in our body and mind, which then alters the way we feel experience and act.
It is so important to spend time gently with yourself doing very little. Just allow the space to be. this allows you to recalibrate rebalance and re-energize yourself.
Try practising this any place any time. Mindfulness isn't about sitting cross-legged in the sunset looking like a Yogi, it is about an attitude of mind which can be accessed any place any time.
