When I first read Jon Kabat-Zinn's "Wherever you go, there you are," I was hoping to drop into the most pleasurable moments of my life. After beginning a meditation practice I realized I gained an ability to drop into all moments of my life, even those that are uncomfortable. Mindfulness practice has helped me heal myself in times of suffering by really paying attention to what is going on in my body and mind. It's also enriched my life by reminding me that I really do only have moments to live and it's time to pay attention to them. I'm a much better listener and more compassionate because of my meditation practice.
