Mindfulness means being awake. It means knowing what you are doing  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) The little things? The little moments? They aren’t little  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) A lot of harm has come in all eras from people attached to one view of ‘spiritual’ truth  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) But you cannot have harmony without a commitment to ethical behavior. It’s the fence that keeps out the goats that will eat all the young shoots in your garden  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) To drop into being means to recognize your interconnectedness with all life, and with being itself. Your very nature is being part of larger and larger spheres of wholeness  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) My father was a world-class scientist and my mother was a prolific painter. I could see that my parents had completely different ways of knowing and understanding the world, and relating to it. My father approached things through scientific inquiry and exploration, while my mother experienced things through her emotions and senses  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) Most people don’t realize that the mind constantly chatters. And yet, that chatter winds up being the force that drives us much of the day in terms of what we do, what we react to, and how we feel  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) I was very much a tough New York street kid. I went to a school where you had to learn how to get along with everybody or fight with everybody, and I did my fair share of both  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) Breathing is central to every aspect of meditation training. It’s a wonderful place to focus in training the mind to be calm and concentrated  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) Mindfulness is about love and loving life. When you cultivate this love, it gives you clarity and compassion for life, and your actions happen in accordance with that  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) Can you question who you are? And are you comfortable with not knowing?  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) When you have children, you realize how easy it is to not see them fully, and perhaps miss all those early years. If you are not careful, you can be too absorbed in work, and they will be only too happy to tell you about it later. Being a parent is one of greatest mindfulness practices of all  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) Science gave me a cosmic religious feeling, and I would get the same feeling when I was dragged to the Met and the Museum of Modern Art.  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) I don’t want people following Jon Kabat-Zinn. I want them following themselves.  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) Sometimes shutting off the sound on the television can allow you to actually watch the game and take it in in an entirely different and more direct way - a first-order, first-person experience - rather than filtered through the mind of another.  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) The notion that the mind and body are actually different sides of the same coin goes all the way back to the origins of medicine. For most of its history, the practice was not separated from other aspects of human activity.  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) There are a lot of different ways to talk about mindfulness, but what it really means is awareness  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) The ‘find it, fix it ‘model of medicine doesn’t work any more. The U.S. healthcare system is bankrupting the country, bankrolling the insurance companies and exhausting healthcare staff. And despite all that, we are ranked 50th in the world for life expectancy.  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) I loved science, and when I discovered Buddhist meditative practices and martial arts, I was able to bridge those ways of knowing the world into my own unique way. From that grew the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program, which became my karmic assignment.  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) I’ll take transformational change any way it comes. One way to look at meditation is as a kind of intrapsychic technology that’s been developed over thousands of years by traditions that know a lot about the mind/body connection. To call what happens ‘the placebo effect’ is just to give a name to something we don’t understand.  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) I started the Stress Reduction Clinic in 1979. The idea of bringing Buddhist meditation without the Buddhism into the mainstream of medicine was tantamount to the Visigoths being at the gates about to tear down the citadel of Western civilization.  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) It is what makes us human, what distinguishes us from other animals. We can be aware of being aware.  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) See If You Can Give Yourself Gifts That May Be True Blessings, Such As Self-Acceptance  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) Awareness Is Not The Same As ThoughtMore Like A Vessel Which Can Hold And Contain Our Thinking  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) Dying without actually fully living, without waking up to our lives while we have the chance, is an ongoing and significant risk.  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) In Asian languages, the word for ‘mind’ and the word for ‘heart’ are same. So if you’re not hearing mindfulness in some deep way as heartfulness, you’re not really understanding it. Compassion and kindness towards oneself are intrinsically woven into it. You could think of mindfulness as wise and affectionate attention  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) You might be tempted to avoid the messiness of daily living for the tranquility of stillness and peacefulness. This of course would be an attachment to stillness, and like any strong attachment, it leads to delusion. It arrests development and short-circuits the cultivation of wisdom  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) Concentration is a cornerstone of mindfulness practice. Your mindfulness will only be as robust as the capacity of your mind to be calm and stable. Without calmness, the mirror of mindfulness will have an agitated and choppy surface and will not be able to reflect things with any accuracy  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) Just watch this moment, without trying to change it at all. What is happening? What do you feel? What do you see? What do you hear?  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes) The best way to capture moments is to pay attention. This is how we cultivate mindfulness. Mindfulness means being awake. It means knowing what you are doing  (Jon Kabat-Zinn Quotes)
