Mindfulness isn’t difficult. We just need to remember to do it. (Sharon Saltzberg, author)

The purpose of the history department of one liberal arts college, translated from Latin, is “mindful of what has been done, aware of what is possible.” To be aware both of existing achievements and the possibilities around us, whatever our work, is a prerequisite for success. As Saltzberg says, we have to be alert as well as aware.

So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded. (1 Thessalonians 5:6)
