Mindfulness, a practice that has been around for centuries is being re-discovered.
Mindfulness is the practice of non-judgmentally focusing your attention on the current moment. It is an active state of awareness where we recognize or notice what our thoughts and experiences are in the “Now”.
Mindfulness differs from meditation in that mindfulness is more about focusing upon what is going on in the now. It has a purposefulness, whereas, meditation is more concerned with coming into the “now” experience without focusing on our current thoughts or experiences.
Mindfulness and meditation are very effective tools for taming the mind and developing your awareness of Self.

To be successful in life you have to “Jump” as Steve Harvey says.
Listen to Steve Harvey’s message in the video clip below. Everyone knows that Steve Harvey is a famous Comedian and host of the Family Feud game show. However, very few know that he often spends a few minutes talking to the live audience at the end of every episode. The following video clip is of one of talks.
His message is on point and ties together the challenge of becoming successful and actively living the life that you were given to have.
He calls it “Jumping”. In other words, go out on a limb, live by faith, get out of your comfort zone and discover/embrace that which comes to you naturally (your gift) . I like his analogy of jumping and pulling the cords on a parachute that must eventually open.
Watch his amazing message in the video clip below.
Folks … Don’t worry about finding your Spiritual Path … Find Yourself(Authentic Self) and the path reveals itself to you.
