How are You Suffering? The societal expectation is that you will buy more; more for yourself and more for others. You will make purchases to prove that you love another and of course the more expensive the more you love them.
Mindfulness is very simply the process of being awake and present to the now. No judgement of the present moment, instead the acceptance of what is and allowing yourself to fully experience it.
There is such a wealth of wisdom from ancient Buddhist teachings and spiritual texts that has become lost or forgotten today.
