Jon Kabat-Zinn on How to Find Peace & Achieve Your True Self

share:

How can you give yourself the gift of awareness? Jon Kabat-Zinn, scientist, author, meditation teacher, professor, and founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Clinic discovered the power of meditation in his 20s and began on a mission to spread meditation and mindfulness as far as possible. He teaches you how to be present in any moment, what awareness really means, how to practice radical self love, how to govern yourself through meditation, and how to give your heart back to yourself.

TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:

1. As long as you’re breathing, there’s more right with you than wrong with you, no matter what. There is more right with us in any moment.
2. The only thing you need to put on your “to be” list is present in the present moment, because it’s the only moment any of us ever have.
3. Take your seat in the present moment. It’s not about feeling good or having some wonderful, calm, insightful experience. It’s just stopping and dropping into the present moment, which is your life. When you do that, it’s a very radical act of sanity and a radical act of love. It’s love of the miracle of being alive in this moment.
4. Give back your heart to yourself. Peel your own image from the mirror. Sit. Feast on your life.
5. There’s no place to go, there’s nothing to do, and there’s no special state that you’re trying to attain. There’s no there. It’s only here.
6. You’re not your name, you’re not your age, you’re not your ideas or opinions. So who are you? The most realistic and responsible answer would be, “I don’t know.” Being with that not knowing is awareness.
7. We need everybody to show up in their fullness and in their truest nature.
