Mindfulness for beginners

This is the universal message of every great teacher, sage and saint:

‘The kingdom of heaven is within you’

So if heaven is within us,

why human beings are suffering?

what in the world is wrong with us?

Does anybody have the secret?

Some tell you: go on a retreat, try fasting, take amino acids, you need more vitamine C, try colour therapy, take brain enzimes, take flower remedies, work of visualizations, chant a mantra, go to Tibet..and so on and on, does it sound familiar to you?

I am not enlighted and don’t have the answer but according to my experience as a Mindfulness practitioner it is possible to be in peace if you look inside of you. By putting your attention into your body, the physical sensations and the breathing you can get detached of your thoughts and emotions which are the cause of our main suffering.
