  1. Thanks so much for clarifying mindfullness techniques far better than anyone else in all the years I’ve sought answers.

  2. Thanks for this… and reminding me to take a vacation!

  3. Mr. Shamash,
    I am in a deep mess..
    I just don’t know what to do…
    I am ruminating things over and over again….
    I just hate myself now….
    I am suffering in my studies, everywhere…
    Once, i never knew what is mindfulness all about, but i had mindfulness in my nature….
    But after much time i completely lost it…
    I just can’t focus on anything…
    I just keep on listening my blabber head…
    I cannot even talk with my friends because i am not able to focus on what they are saying, rather i focus on what my mind puts negativistic pessimistic thoughts….
    Please can you help?
