Having embarked on the path of mindfulness we become more aware of our thoughts and emotions and often we don’t like what we see. However, in order to progress we’ll need to come to terms with our thoughts and emotions and our attitudes towards them. We can do this through developing compassionate self-acceptance. Having compassion for oneself is related to forgiving oneself for perceived failures and inadequacies and seeing that – as humans – we are all in the same boat. This way self-compassion leads to compassion for others.
Mindfulness enhances all aspects of our lives and can help people of any faith develop a deeper understanding of their own minds.
