Mindfulness in Plain English

Mindfulness is present-time awareness. It takes place in the here and

now. It is the observance of what is happening right now, in the

present moment. It stays forever in the present, perpetually on the

crest of the ongoing wave of passing time.

If you are remembering your second-grade teacher, that is memory.

When you then become aware that you are remembering your second-grade

teacher, that is mindfulness. If you then conceptualize that process

and say to yourself, “Oh, I am remembering,” that is thinking.

-Henepola Gunaratana, Mindfulness in Plain English
