Mindfulness and Its Relation to Self-Transformation and Evolving Inspiration in Society

Abstract

Living in this modern and advanced technology time with selfishness, anger, hatred, temptation, distraction, and a busy lifestyle has been a common practice for people. In the rough, society or inhabitant is not concerned or yet convinced of how mindfulness can be conducive to transforming one’s character so one can safeguard oneself and save others. This paper aims to show being mindful is crucial in daily life as it leads to being self-controlled and self-transformed with the proper understanding. It is a qualitative analysis based on the Buddhist primary and secondary reflective sources, which comprises three objectives: First, to display how practising mindfulness is conducive to self-transforming with positive attitudes of compassion, kindness and integrity. Second, to illustrate the way of applying mindful breathing and the cultivation of loving-kindness through the foundation of mindfulness. And Third, to analyse the proper application of mindfulness to being self-transformed and an active inspirer in society.
