Live in the present moment

To be mindful of something is to recognise that something is there in the present moment. Mindfulness is the capacity of being aware of what is going on in the present moment. ‘Breathing in, I know that anger has manifested in me; breathing out, I smile towards my anger’. This is not an act of suppression or of fighting. It is an act of recognising. Once we recognise our anger, we embrace it with a lot of awareness, a lot of tenderness.
