Mindfulness within and without

In my life I have found that mindfulness exists in two very different spaces.

The first is where there is a lot going on. Within a busy space and time, I can direct my attention to find peace in my breathe, my senses, my awareness of the world around me. One could call this crowded mindfulness.

The second is where there is very little going on. With empty space and time, I can drop deeply into practices that connect me to a sense of peace and calm. One could call this empty mindfulness.

Where in your life are you in need of more mindfulness? What is the balance of crowded and empty that best suits your practice?
