We're All in This Together

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 our common humanity.

How we're all in this shared

human experience together.

So I think when we first start practicing

mindfulness, it can feel like a really

solitary thing that we're doing.

You know, we take this time

out on our own to meditate, to

tune into our own inner world.

But then something very

interesting starts to happen.

The moment just to get our own mind,

our own human experience, the more

we begin to discover that the way

that our mind operates is basically

the same as how all minds operate.

What's happening within our own

experience, we begin to see, is not

really that unique to us, but rather

it's a shared human experience.

And our own deepest nature is the

same as everyone's deepest nature.

And we all have fears.

We all have regrets, hopes and dreams.

We all struggle sometimes.

We've all felt hurt and loss.

We've all got flaws as well as

strengths, and we've all made mistakes.

We all want to be free from

pain and suffering, and we

all wish to be happy and safe.

We all feel emotions

and experience thoughts.

We all have moments of great clarity

and awareness and other moments where

we're completely lost in our minds.

All of these is part of our shared

human experience and the more deeply

we see and understand this, the more

compassionate we become and the more

connected we feel with the other people

and the whole world around us, in fact.

Now, although we often think we're

really different from each other.

You know, we may have different beliefs.

We have different opinions.

We have different ways of life.

But if meditation shows us one thing,

for sure, it's that we're much more

the same than we are different.

We're more connected than separate.

And we really are all in this together.

And the more we really see and

understand that the more we start to

feel a sense of true belonging, harmony

and peace, not only within ourselves,

but within the world around us too.

So as always thank you for your

practice and your presence here with us.

And now let's settle in

for today's meditation.
