If you look at any culture throughout history, you’ll find that their traditions include some form of meditation or mindfulness practice.
Christians and Muslims pray. Catholics recite rosaries. Buddhists meditate. People in India practice yoga. Native Americans perform sweat lodges…
…and so on.
So why do so many different societies evolve some sort of practice dedicated to helping people clear their minds, and access deeper levels of awareness and consciousness?
It’s because the wisest people in every culture understand the same profound truth: that the quality of our thoughts create the quality of our reality.
So if you want to experience a more peaceful, joyful and fulfilling reality, you must learn to raise your consciousness and access a higher level of thoughts.
But not all mindfulness practices are tied to religion or take the form of prayer or meditation.
Today I’d like to share some of the other interesting ways people around the world cultivate mindfulness to maximize their happiness and fulfillment in life.
