Why be mindful?

     "Be always mindful of what you are doing and thinking, so that you may put the imprint of your immortality on every passing incident of your daily life."     
                                                                                                       Abd'l-Khaliq Ghijdewani, 13th century Sufi

"The fragrance of blossoms soon passes;
the ripeness of fruit is gone in a twinkling.
Our time in this world is so short,
better to avoid regret:
Miss no opportunity to savor the ineffable."                        Loy Ching Yuen, 20th century Taoist
