Mindfulness App _: See Things as They are

See

Reference: Mindfulness

Being established in mindfulness is a mental state of ‘seeing things as they are’. It does not matter whether your eyes are closed or open; whether you are sitting, standing or walking; whether you are engaged in some activity or not.

You practice ‘seeing as they are’ in all modes of existence.
