What is mindfulness, really?
You’ve probably heard this buzz-word before,
But what does it do and how can it be used in your life?
Mindfulness concepts we know today are rooted in Zorastrianism,
a Persian science that teaches the importance of
living each day with self-awareness.
It’s been around for over 4,000 years and has influenced major religions,
including Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
The three main principles of Zorastrianism are:
Total awareness of our thoughts, words, and actions
Radical honesty in all aspects of life
Unconditional respect for & acceptance of self, others, nature, and life itself
You can find these principles in every aspect of your life -
from how you talk to yourself to how you treat others.
When we live by these principles consistently, it brings greater peace into our lives because we're not constantly worrying about what's going on with us or what might happen next. We're able to be more present in the moment without being anxious about the future or regretful about the past.
This leads to less stress overall, which means

Teachings of Zorastor & Rumi...
Zorastor, a Persian philosopher and spiritual leader, devoted his life to mindfulness and his methods are relevant and useful today. They are woven throughout Rumi’s poems about life, love, and success that many covet and use as personal guidance.
These methods include:
Mantra-meditations that take us beyond our conditioned mind.
Self-care routines that connect us to nature’s rhythms and cycles
Reverence for our existence through gratitude and joy
While it seems nearly everyone is trying to sell "mindfulness" trainings and techniques today, truly living in a mindful state is no simple task. It requires patience, trust, and dedication to continually explore one’s inner awareness.
