I’ve often examined that if we can study our mind – then we are not the mind.  I can further state that if we can still our mind – we are not our mind.  Because if we have control over a certain function of our physiology – then we are not that function.  We are separate from it. 

And as the mind is the main driver of our experiences – our world becomes the Cartesian screen.  (Descartes’: “I think therefore I am”).  Hence, what we experience could simply be explained as the data that is gathered by our senses, translated by our brain and projected onto the lucid screen – Life.

Mindfulness does not simply arise from moments of stillness or steady breathing; mindfulness is self-awareness.  Self-awareness arises from knowing we are not our mind.  It is to study the nature of the mind.  What is the mind?  What potentially constitutes the mind?  Is it a fragment of our persona?  Is it the “I” in our experiences?  From this act, we begin to lift the almost-permanent veil that shields us from surrendering and accepting that we are beyond the mind – the thoughts.  Awareness is our ability to know that we can Be without the mind – and Be OK.  With awareness we reach our source.  And that source carries all meaning, all ecstasies, and all blessings. To be mindful is to be mind-less; it is to fully drop the mind and embrace our being.  To be mind-less is not to be use-less; it is being empowered.

In leadership when we reach the state of mindless-ness our potential increases ten-fold, our creativity sky rockets, we become fulfilled, un-bound, un-limited, and the loyalty of our peers and followers grows stronger – because they also see the transformation. It becomes contagious! Mindfulness is the state of self-awareness, of dropping the mind; it is the act of de-constructing the old mind to create a new, fresh, self-full reality.  This new reality is now heart-based.  Because to be a great leader just like it is to be a great warrior – this requires – most importantly – a heart of Gold!
