Vividly Alive

Book coverThe basic point of mindfulness is to be completely, totally in touch with what happens in your body and the environment around you. You are not reduced to an inanimate clod of earth while you are meditating. You may feel your pulse or your heartbeat. You feel your breathing. You hear sounds and see sights. You feel vividly that you are alive

From “Life Force” in Mindfulness in Action by Chögyam Trungpa, page 76
