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. Active Pause is how we shift from mindless to mindful.
Using the phrase “from mindless to mindful” makes it simple to describe mindfulness. We are mindful when we are not mindless. We are mindless when we are on autopilot, i.e. when we keep going without being aware of what we are doing.
As we pause and pay attention to our inner experience, we experience a sense of self.
Default Mode (no pause) = Mindless autopilot.
Active Pause = Mindful engagement.
Pausing gives me an opportunity to get a sense of who I am & what I want.
