What You Resist Persists

Stop resisting! Mindfulness isn’t about preventing emotions such as sadness, anger and suffering. It’s about learning to identify emotions as they first appear and training the brain to simply observe without resistance or attachment and release it.  Watch the emotion rise, be the awareness behind the emotion and then let it dissolve.                                                                          

  I already shared this on my instagram page today but I couldn’t help but repost it again here. I think this is such a great reminder of the purpose of mindfulness in creating inner-peace and harmony.
