Attitudinal approach of mindfulness.John Kabat-Zin

Attitudinal approach of mindfulness-

 Dr. JOHN KABAT- ZIN 

"the cultivation of mindfulness of moment

to moment non-judgmental awareness is

really it sounds very simple but it's

actually just about the hardest work in

the world for human beings because we

get so caught up in our conditioned

states of mind and when we begin to

cultivate awareness it's really

important to bring a certain attitudinal

approach to it so that we're not trying

to force anything to happen or sit in

the kind of rigid posture or attain some

special state that will you know that we

sort of think ah that's what it is I'll

be enlightened or I'll just be

permanently wise or I'll be this or I'll

be that the problem isn't actually with

the Enlightenment or the permanently

wise or anything like that the problem

is with the personal pronouns I me and

mine and they are very very problematic

because who we think we are and who we

actually are are very different and

there's a huge separation when we think

we are is very very small compared to

who we actually are and so when we are

cultivating mindfulness in MBSR or with

people we encourage a certain kind of

attitude that's brought to the formal

and informal practices that you can keep

in mind through your daily life as well".- JOHN KABAT ZIN
