Mindfulness is not a word most people use in everyday conversation. When you hear it, what does your mind conjure? A Zen follower in meditation? A woodworker running a power saw?

What are we being mindful of?

Where we are?

The present moment?

What we’re doing?

Let’s make it simple. When we’re mindful of our true essence, our authentic self or our higher self, all of the above are involved. We will be aware of time, space, our feelings, our bodies and physical movements, and our conscious thoughts. We don’t need to go through a checklist.

Mindfulness in Enlightened Negotiation® is about mindfulness of Self, mindfulness of others, and mindfulness of the creative process. Negotiation requires the convergence of two or more parties toward a collectively satisfactory agreement. People must deal with people. Regardless of how we master all other elements and follow the other principles of negotiation, the ultimate test of our success is how we deal with people.

A human being is a part of the whole, called by us “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the resta kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. The striving to free oneself from this delusion is the one issue of true religion. Not to nourish it but to try to overcome it is the way to reach the attainable measure of peace of mind. – Albert Einstein
