9 Attitudes of Mindfulness’ by Jon Kabat Zinn
1-Beginner’s Mind (Reality is fresh).
3-Acceptance (Active staying with experience and acting from there. It’s not resignation nor condoning).
4-Letting go (Opposite of clinging & grasping, letting be, non-attachment).
6-Patience (Anxious to get to the next moment, therefore missing the present moment).
7-Non-striving (Non-doing. Doesn’t mean you don’t get things done. Simply being with the unfoldment of reality without any specific agenda).
