A Mindful Life or Mindless Life?

About a month ago I attended a three hour seminar featuring James Van Praagh.  It was an evening that I will forever cherish.  If you have an opportunity to attend one of his seminars, I highly recommend that you do so.  At the end of the evening I purchased his book Unfinished Business, What the Dead Can Teach Us About Life.
Unfinished Business is filled with information learned from those who are no longer incarnate.   According to Mr. Praagh when a person has the opportunity to communicate with a loved one who has crossed over, he or she can look at things from a different perspective.  Some of the messages from those who have crossed over are asking and giving forgiveness; relieving a person of guilt; expressing regrets and giving apologies.  A lot of spirits suffer from unfinished business when they leave this life.
Chapter nine of the book has a sub-title, Mindful or Mindless?  Living mindful is living your life with awareness of the present moment.  To live in the present, we must always be aware of what we think, feel, and sense, otherwise we become a victim. We create situations in our lives to our detriment. When we live in a state of mindfulness we lift ourselves higher  in consciousness. When we are attuned to our higher-self we are more intuitive. Our creativity flows and we are aware of others’ feelings from a soul perspective.
Everyday I try to live a mind-full life.  It’s not easy but I have gotten much better at it.  When I interact with others I do so from a place of love. If I am upset about something, I accept it, feel the emotion and then let it go.  But sometimes I am unable to move through those emotions easily.  I work very hard at not being judgmental and it is the hardest thing to do.  When I catch myself doing so, I immediately change my thoughts. Although I may fall short sometimes, I strive to live a mind-full life.
