"Accept -- then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it." - Eckhart Tolle
Last week, we shared Jon Kabat Zinn's definition of mindfulness. It's about being you, he says, and knowing more about who that is. We'd take that a step further and say it's about being you all the time, good, bad, or indifferent. Mindfulness practice doesn't just happen on a yoga mat, with an instructor and soft music in the background. No, we practice mindfulness especially when we're feeling discontent.

Eckhart Tolle suggests we sit with this awareness. Next time you're sitting in traffic, feeling anxious, or unsatisfied with some result, consider this perspective on mindfulness . What good will it do to act out of frustration? How can you work with the circumstance rather than against it?
