Early in the morning, the night just finished, the internal operating system makes its restart, the eyes are opened and immediately a stream of information starts to have an effect on us. Now it matters keeping together all your senses for a successful handling of the outer world. However, are we really the ones who steer this process – or did an unnamed internal autopilot already take over command and control? Are we the composer or the spectator of this daily game?
The untrained mind is like a leaf in the wind: Apparently an endless stream of unleashed thoughts acts in ourselves without authority. Carried away by external forces and driven by a seemless chain of desires and activities this incessant river flushes us through days and years. At the end all self-efficacy indiscernibly is wrest away from us and our lives.
The wish to pause for one moment, the necessity for taking a deep breath, and a powerful awareness of the world within and outside of us may be vital and present, however, wears off with regard to vasting activities, alluring dissipations and helpless distractions.
Everything occuring around us, everything in which we participate binds one of our most important resources: Attention. Additionally we are forced to make unasked decisions and to influence our environment: Either we are able to direct our perception inwardly or outwardly, wether we turn actively towards someone or something, or allow events letting arbitrarily have an effect on us, either we may concentrate upon the detail or grasp the big whole picture.
In any case this choice determines our actions and makes us take a firm stand. In particular cases this may be quite helpful, nevertheless, in the sum of all appraisals, considerations and evaluations we deprive ourselves of the freedom for real decision and confine ourselves between hope and fear.

Different methods of mindfulness training will enable you:
You, as a precious person with individual preconditions are always origin and destination of all applied execises regarding mindfulness and awareness.
During the wake state the attentiveness of a person may either roam aimlessly around or could be focused and aligned with different intensities. Furthermore the brain executes a huge amount of unconscious information processings.
Intentions, interests and convictions decisively influence the allocation of attention resources and therefore determine the further processing of perceptions in the sensory memory. On the whole the brains capacity of the conscious handling of perception stimuli is limited. This restriction inevitably results in a striking filtering of the apparent reality.
Mindfulness is a certain form of attention. The practicing person intentionally tries to develop an undirected, constant intensity of the whole sensory perception, guided by raised consciousness in order to remain in the current without expectations, concepts or associations.
Therefore mindfulness clearly differs from concentration where the focusing on something is the constitutive characteristic.
