Mindfulness defined

“In Asian languages, the word for ‘mind’ and the word for ‘heart’ are the same word… So when you hear the word ‘mindfulness’, if you’re not in some sense automatically hearing the word ‘heartfulness’ you’re misunderstanding it. And mindfulness in any event is not a concept; it’s a way of being.

And it’s a way of being awake. “
