Meaning and purpose are not abstract philosophical ideas. And mindfulness is not some sort of otherworldly state that is a break from ordinary reality.
Life is interaction, and mindfulness is our natural ability to manage the interactions of life. We are mindless when we are on autopilot, i.e. when we keep going without being aware of what we are doing.
Pausing gives us the possibility to pay attention to our inner experience, i.e. to be mindful. This kind of contemplation is not divorced from real life. It is what allows us to find motivation, a felt sense of meaning and purpose, moment by moment: As I pause, I get a sense of who I am & what I want.
The Active Pause podcast features conversations and talks about mindfulness, as well as conversations about “What Sustains Me.”
