One of the most important experiences of the human being is to be aware of who we really are. We do identify with many things that are not ourselves and this fixation separates us from people who could be friends. Not only this, but our own true qualities remain hidden from us. Mindfulness enables us to set out along a path of disidentification and discovery of our true being.
One of the keys of mindfulness is to acquire full awareness of our breathing, and thus, little by little, to advance in bodily sensations and, in turn, delve deeper into our emotions. The final destination is not the wish to stop our thoughts, rather the true objective is to be able to increase our awareness through paying full attention. In this course we will discover how to progress with this focus little by little, without hurrying, without pressure, because the seedling will not flower however much we look at it. When the time comes, it will simply shoot and come to light. Thus, we must follow this path with understanding and respect for the rhythm of each person without trying to hurry, which can harm rather than help the person.
