A Waking life

Monday, September 26, 2011

Life Happens (Waking up to yourself and your life in a mindful way) by Dr. Cheryl A. Rezek, a clinical psychologist, that offers a thoughtful and effective approach to life, to cope with physical illness or stress, anxiety, chronic pain, arthritis, cancer and even addictions.

It is a book, with two CDs thrown in, that explores the concept of mindfulness, which began as a Buddhist practice nearly 2,500 years ago. Mindfulness is the process of paying attention to yourself, to your feelings, thoughts, actions and choices, all within the context of the present moment, the now.

The challenge is to allow both the past and the present to co-exist, so that the past does not overshadow the present, and the present is able to be real in its own right. We bring into this moment a condensed version of all our yesterdays and the expectations of all our tomorrows. We can shift the focus to now, to this exact moment, in order to choose how to live it.
