Mindfulness and mindlessness

A healthy mind is a medium that connects energy and matter with meanings and value. A fresh mind evaluates new events and experiences and considers advantages and benefits for fulfilment. Nowadays, the idea of mindfulness implies being focused and single pointed. Mindlessness may equate to oblivion without any sense of time or identity.

The beginner’s mind is less cluttered with memories and prejudices. It connects the ever-changing consciousness, with supreme consciousness. It has a chance to transcend personal discernment and evaluation to higher states of pure witnessing.

The beginner’s mind is fresh, flexible, and close to the door of eternal presence and the infinite Nowness.
