Chapter 2: Awareness & our Spectrum of Perception
(Our community is due to spammers and inactivity closed right now, but I will revive GoMindful.com in the future again.)
Get to know the state of being (broad awareness) and the state of doing (typical “work mode” concentration). Learn why the state of being matters so much and most of us are much more trained to remain in the state of doing. Both states have their advantages and in the upcoming practical lessons in this chapter you will learn how to train your state of being and become more aware of what’s going on in and around you.
