The 12 Aspects of Mindfulness

.

Mindfulness is attentiveness. The function of mindfulness is to bring clarity to what is being perceived. The 12 aspects of mindfulness are:

  • Observe without expecting anything, or attempting to get an answer.
  • Observe things as they are, without assuming anything.
  • If something is missing do not imagine something else in its place. 
  • If something does not make sense then do not explain it away.
  • Use physical senses as well as mental sense to observe.
  • Let the mind un-stack itself. 
  • Experience fully what is there.  
  • Do not suppress anything.
  • Associate data freely.
  • Do not get hung up on name and form.
  • Contemplate thoughtfully.
  • Let it all be effortless.
