Mindfulness quotes can be just the focus tool we need for those days when our brains are small replicas of the command bridge on the Starship Enterprise, complete with Captain Kirk barking orders for Mr. Sulu to go at warp speed ahead.
Thrusters at full capacity, we blaze through our days like we’re chasing a Klingon who just stole our private chocolate stash (and you know you have one).
In the future we very well may have the cool opportunity to galaxy jump at will, but for today being mindful — practicing how to live in the moment — keeps us grounded and able experience our lives rather than be a tourist in it.
One energy healing technique that will help clear your mind and bring you peace is to carry a piece of the healing crystal Celestite at all times. Another is to keep inspirational words and phrases with you wherever you travel. Below are 10 of best spiritual quotes to help bring your attention back to practicing mindfulness.
Our favorite mindfulness quote…
Be happy in the moment, that’s enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.
~ Mother Teresa

Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.
Mindfulness, also called wise attention, helps us see what we’re adding to our experiences, not only during meditation sessions but also elsewhere.

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.
Get action. Seize the moment. Man was never intended to become an oyster.
Why not just live in the moment, especially if it has a good beat?
I admire the fact that the central core of Buddhist teaching involves mindfulness and loving kindness and compassion.
I know that the purpose of life is to understand and be in the present moment with the people you love. It’s just that simple.
Thich Nhat Hanh
When you look at the sun during your walking meditation, the mindfulness of the body helps you to see that the sun is in you; without the sun there is no life at all and suddenly you get in touch with the sun in a different way.
The answer is, who you are cannot be defined through thinking or mental labels or definitions, because it’s beyond that. It is the very sense of being, or presence, that is there when you become conscious of the present moment. In essence, you and what we call the present moment are, at the deepest level, one.
