Liberation from the chains that bind our minds

Mindfulness is really about freedom.  It is first and foremost a liberating practice.  It is a way of being that gives us back our life, and our happiness, right here, right now - that wrests  it from the jaws of unawareness and habits of inattention and somnambulism that threatens to imprison us in ways that can be as painful, ultimately, as losing our outward freedoms.  And one way it frees us is from continually making the same unwise decisions when the consequences of such are staring us right in the face and could be apprehended, if only we would look and actually see.
