Mindfulness Cuts Bewilderment and Jumpiness

Book coverBy practicing meditation, you develop sympathy for yourself, and a friendly and healthy attitude. You can actually go so far as to be with yourself. You are simply learning to be. Mindfulness is simply looking at ourselves and cutting the roots of bewilderment and jumpiness. It is fully being there.
