Interview between Oprah & Jon Kabat-Zinn on Mindfulness: (The Wisdom of Sundays)
Oprah: Is mindfulness science? It is art? Is it spiritual?
Jon Kabat-Zinn: It’s a gateway into the full dimensionality of being human and being alive.
Ophrah: Oh, I love that. “It’s a gateway into the full dimensionality of being human.” And without it, you’re missing out.
Jon: Well, you’re missing a lot. You know, if you miss the look in your child’s eye one day, you’ve missed it. If you missed the look in your lover’s eyes the next day, you’ve missed that. If you miss the beauty of sitting under trees, well, you’ve missed that. If you sum that over many moments, many years, you may wind up missing the most beautiful aspects of your own life. … So the perfect moment is this one.
