The ability to regulate our breathing plays an all important role in enabling us to respond to situations in a calm and balanced manner. It enhances the overall stability of your mind, even in very difficult moments, when you most need some stability and clarity of mind.
When you touch base in any moment with that part of your mind that is already calm and stable, your perspective immediately changes. You can see things more clearly and act from inner balance rather than being tossed about by the agitation of your mind. We rarely pay moment-to-moment attention to the tasks, experiences, and encounters of ordinary living.
Too often, we find ourselves doing several things all at the same time. I, for one, would be reading while I am eating. So I found it amusing that one of the earliest activities that the participants in the MBSR program are asked to do is to eat three raisins meditatively.
They have to eat them one at a time, feeling the texture of the raisin between the fingers, noticing its colors and texture, paying attention to what they are actually doing and experiencing from moment to moment. It is interesting that some participants find themselves tasting a raisin for the very first time.
The point is that eating or conversing with a friend or any other activity can be far more satisfying when we bring awareness to what we are actually doing while we are doing it. In moments of calm and alert attention, we are also more likely to gain insight into ourselves and our lives, which can lead to worthwhile changes.
Third, I like how mindfulness teaches acceptance and kindness toward oneself. The premise is that by intentionally cultivating acceptance, we are creating the preconditions for healing.
Acceptance comes before change. There are, however, tenets about mindfulness I have difficulty coming to terms with. It could be due to my limited understanding at this point in time. My biggest difficulty has to do with its views on thoughts.
The mindfulness-based approach adopts the view that we are not our thoughts.
I am inclined to think otherwise. It is more gentle than that.
You are allowing the thoughts to do whatever they do as you keep your attention on the breath as best you can, moment by moment. I find this mind-boggling.
It is tantamount to invalidating what one has thought about. Do our thoughts not dictate how we perceive and interpret experiences as well as how we feel and behave?
I hope you all make the choice and read the book. His work has contributed to a growing movement of mindfulness into mainstream institutions in our society such as medicine, health care and hospitals, schools, corporations, prisons, and professional sports. Kabat-Zinn lives in Lexington, Massachussets.
