Essence of the Divine



Higher Awareness

"Mindfulness means moment-to-moment, non-judgmental awareness. It

is cultivated by refining our capacity to pay attention,

intentionally, in the present moment, and then sustaining that

attention over time as best we can. In the process, we become

more in touch with our life as it is unfolding."

-- Myla & Jon Kabat-Zinn

Why do we want to become more aware?

If we remain unaware, we:

- repeat the past,

- remain stuck in relationships,

- live superficial, literal and one dimensional lives,

- lack experiences of love and beauty, and

- have limited connection to others and the universe.

With awareness, we are fully involved with life. Awareness is

sensing deeply and sensitively for what really is. To do this, we

need to approach the present as totally new. When we can be open

and attentive in each moment, we begin to free ourselves from the

conditioning of the past and the suffering that it so often


"If moment by moment you can keep your mind clear then nothing

will confuse you."
