Making mistakes in life is one of its inevitabilities…but it is impossible to transcend any individual limitation without first agreeing to meet it. Such encounters are the path we must walk if our wish is to fulfill whatever may be our Divinely dispensed possibilities.
Have you ever been stunned at the ways in which you act against yourself? Only to find out after the act that you did so? Within us lives a nature, a conscience, that cannot be made to act against itself. But to know its protective influence, we must be mindful in the moment.
To be mindful is to be aware of the stream of all that is not mindful. If we’re mindful to what might seem positive but is secretly punishing, then we can stop taking its directive.
The more awake we can be -- the more mindful of the whole of ourselves we are before we start moving toward any aim in life -- the less likely we are to find ourselves feeling stressed, angry, or fearful over where we end up.
Use the following seven unseen blessings of being mindful to help you realize just how nice it would be to see a pit before you fall into it!
