The 9 -Attitudes of Mindfulness Meditation – Jon Kabat-Zinn
Impartial witnessing, observing your evaluations and categorizations. Noticing the automatic habit of labelling our experience as good, bad or neutral. Habit of
judging locks us into an automatic reaction without being aware of them, where
they do not have any objective basis. Once we are aware of out judging, then we
can choose actions and behaviours more consciously, rather than automatically
reacting to the situations in our environment. This principle is useful as we
start to engage in a new mindfulness practice that our mind may judge as boring
or a waste of time.
Allowing things to unfold in their time, bringing patience to ourselves and others.
This is an understanding that sometimes things must unfold in their own
time. This principle reminds us to be patient with ourselves as our mind is
stretched in new ways. Patience is a helpful quality to invoke when the mind is
agitated. To be patient, is to be open to each moment as it unfolds knowing
that like the butterfly, that some things can only unfold in their own time.
So, when starting out your mindfulness practice or anything else please stick
through whatever takes place trusting that some things will make more sense
after you have practiced them for a while.
Beginner’s Mind: Willing
to see things as if for the first time. We let our beliefs about a
situation prevent us from seeing things as they really are. No moment is the
same as any other. Beginner’s mind allows us to be receptive to new
possibilities and prevents us from getting stuck in our mind, which often
thinks it knows more than it actually does. Try to cultivate your own
beginner’s mind as an experiment. The next time you see someone familiar,
notice if you are seeing the person with fresh eyes or through the lens of your
beliefs about that person. When you are out walking, see if you are noticing
things, you might have overlooked before. Developing beginner’s mind opens you
to possibilities in life you may be missing out on, because you are viewing
everything through the lens shaped by past experiences, that is not aware of
what else there is to learn and explore.
Trust: Developing trust in your
feelings and yourself is an integral part of the mindfulness practice. The act
of trusting yourself and your basic wisdom, is an important aspect of the
mindfulness training. If you are feeling strongly about something, it is
important to attend to that, rather than ignore it because an outside authority
is telling you to do so. Mindfulness is an objective process of inquiry and
accepting what people of ‘authority’ tell you without questioning the validity
of it for yourself is against the basic premise of mindfulness. It is important
to stay open and learn from other sources but ultimately you have to live your
life and make your choices that feel right to you. It is almost easier to trust
external authorities to tell us how to live our lives. Mindfulness involves
practicing trusting your own feelings and that doesn’t mean you react based
upon all your feelings but that you explore any feelings that show up fully to
see what they are telling you about a situation and then you trust yourself to
come up with the right action.
Non-goal oriented, remaining unattached to outcome or achievement. Even though
everyone undertaking mindfulness practice has some goals intentions while they
are taking their training, at the time of mindfulness practice itself, simply
do the practice without any expectations. When you set expectations, such as
feeling more relaxed, you are introducing conditions that don’t allow you to be
fully present with what is, because you are trying to change the present to be
something else. If you are trying to change the present then you are not being
with what is, which is what the mindfulness training is. Remember to allow
anything and everything that you experience from moment to moment to be there,
because it already is. If you are tensed, just pay attention to the tension. If
you are criticizing yourself, just observe the activity of the judging mind.
Non-striving may be the most difficult of all the principles because in our
culture we are taught to be goal-oriented and to be constantly doing something
in order to reach our goals. In mindfulness you will reach your goals by not
trying to change the present but by being present to whatever arises, and in
that way, you will find that the goals are ultimately reached. This is perhaps
something you will need to experience for yourself to really understand.
Open to seeing and acknowledging things as they are. It does not mean approval or
resignation. Acceptance is the willingness to see things as they really are.
Acceptance does not mean that you have to be satisfied with the way things are
or that you don’t do anything to change what you don’t like. When you have the
ability to see things as they are you free up energy to take the appropriate
actions, instead of working with a mind that is clouded by denial, prejudices,
fears, and self-judgments.
Non-attachment and the ability to put aside the tendency to elevate some
aspects of our experience and to reject others. Letting go is a way of letting
things be, of accepting things as they are. When you observe your mind grasping
or pushing away, you can remind yourself to let go of the impulse to grasp or
push away and see what happens.
Being thankful for the little things in life, can be very rewarding. Not taking our
body for granted is also very rewarding for ourselves. Being thankful for what
works in our body and mind is rewarding. Give thanks to our own body, inside
and outside, e.g., gives thanks to our legs, our heart, our liver, our spleen,
etc. Being thankful for the people who we have in our lives, that supports us,
being thankful for our food, the earth that supply our food, and more.
Give to others, your time, or things that they need. Give attention to others, not for a reward but for the only reason that you would like to help others, that you
would like to give to others, to make them feel better.
