'The most noteworthy result of mindfulness…'

When you buy from an independent artist...
'By paying attention to pain on a daily basis, we are wiring ourselves neurologically...'

"The most noteworthy result of mindfulness, which requires directed willful effort, is the ability it affords those practicing it to observe their sensations and thoughts with the calm clarity of an external witness: through mindful awareness, you can stand outside your own mind as if you are watching what is happening to another rather than experiencing it yourself.   In Buddhist philosophy, the ability to sustain Bare Attention over time is the heart of meditation. The meditator views his thoughts, feelings, and expectations much as a scientist views experimental data—that is, as natural phenomena to be noted, investigated, reflected on, and learned from.   Viewing one’s own inner experience as data allows the meditator to become, in essence, his own experimental subject." -- Dr Jeffrey Schwartz and Sharon Begley from The Mind and the Brain: Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force
