Mindfulness Training January 25-27 Mindfulness meditation is unique in that it is not directed toward getting us to be different from how we already are. Instead, it helps us become aware of what is already true moment by moment. It teaches us how to be unconditionally present; that is, it helps us be present with whatever is happening, no matter what it is.You may wonder what good that is. After all, don't we want to suffer less? Aren't we interested in tuning in to this natural wisdom that we've heard about? Aren't those changes from how we already are?On the one hand, suffering less and being more aware of our inherent wakefulness would be changed from how we experience ourselves right now, or at least most of the time. On the other hand, though, the way to uncover brilliant sanity and to alleviate suffering is by going more deeply into the present moment and into ourselves as we already are, not by trying to change what is already going on.The sitting practice of mindfulness meditation gives us exactly this opportunity to become more present with ourselves just as we are. This, in turn, shows us glimpses of our inherent wisdom and teaches us how to stop perpetuating the unnecessary suffering that results from trying to escape the discomfort, and even pain, we inevitably experience as a consequence of simply being alive.
