The road to mindfulness does not come without challenges. As we are clearing our mind, we open our hearts to all sorts of emotions. When happiness visits, we feel contentment and peace more than ever before. The feeling of being present and alive is magnified to a level of here-and-now that we have perhaps long forgotten. As much as we feel more joy while we walk on the path of mindfulness, we also feel much more pain. Speech or moments that hurt are magnified to a level of here-and-now that we have perhaps previously tried to deny and defy. The path of mindfulness is not easy. Nevertheless, keep practicing.
