How to Be All of You

Personalized support for learning how to integrate mindfulness into your life. Delivered fresh everyday by our world renowned experts. Choose meditation duration:

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness.

Today we're going to talk about how to

embrace and accept all of who you are.

So our personality traits,

quirks, and emotions, and all

of our condition patterns are as

natural as the clouds in the sky.

They're part of the human condition,

but so often we feel like we need to

get rid of certain parts of ourselves,

overcome them, fix them, or deny them.

But we don't need to be free

of these parts of ourselves.

We just need to learn to meet them

with awareness and befriend them.

This is such an important thing to know.

Mindfulness is not a perfection

project, rather, it's a whole

hearted embrace of the full spectrum

of human emotion and experience.

It's a whole hearted embrace of these

moment and ourselves just as we are in

all of our messiness, wonder and beauty.

We're not trying to get rid of certain

emotions or thoughts nor are we trying

to get rid of certain parts of ourselves.

More to the point, we don't have a choice.

We're going to experience emotions.

We're going to experience thoughts and

conditioned patterns and old habits.

And this is a good thing.

To live.A full human life is to experience

the full range of human emotions.

We don't want to throw that away.

The most important thing is the ability to

be able to kind of step back and observe

our emotions, our reactive patterns and

our conditioning so we're not swept up in

them, so we're not overwhelmed by them.

Perhaps one day, even getting to a point

where we accept and even love them.

And when we're able to do

that, then we're truly free.

Because you see, the paradox is that

living a full human life is not about

getting it all together, but it's about

embracing the not-togetherness in a loving

awareness that's larger than it all.

That's peace.

That's mindfulness.

So in the spirit of cultivating

more of that in our lives, let's now

settle in for today's practice and

as always thank you for your practice

and your presence here with us.
