Part of it focused on the way that Mindfulness practice does not explicitly focus on making us happy, unlike some other programmes out there, but rather emphasizes living with the life we actually have. In other words, we are not deliberately working to make our pains and our problems go away, as if they get in the way of us experiencing our real life.
Rather, they are our real life as it is unfolding now.
What mindfulness does is allow us to relate to the difficulties of life in a new way. Relating kindly, with curiosity, even welcoming.
