Mindfulness as Practice for Purity
I liked this passage in the above article on minfulness-L.A
To maintain mindfulness – and to turn off automation – all day long, we have to learn to mindfully transition from one task to another. We need to slow down a bit, and do things more deliberately. Practice opening and closing doors deliberately; practice walking more slowly; when doing menial tasks, put your whole attention into each small task: if you are folding clothes, let each item take your whole attention and put care into how you fold it.
When we do things deliberately, in a calm and recollected way, it is easy to put love into doing them. Our love for God is brought into every detail of every small action, and we do things well in order to be able to offer them to Him. When we live mindfully our life becomes a dialogue: not in words, but in actions offered with love. Living in a recollected way allows us to stay in God’s presence; it allows us to stay in the present moment, which is where we find Him.
