True courage , I have long said is
when an individual who has been afflicted by whatever malady, uses that knowledge and the malady itself to help others. That
is the "Red Badge of Courage".
Be yourself,often. Practice
courage... identify the masks.

Please explain the theory of "mindfulness."
"Mindfulness means paying
attention in a particular way; On purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally." Jon Kabat-Zinn.
Mindfulness in large being is
a state of mind and conscious. That the patient becomes aware of the rationale for the actions that they are performing. An
example would be in substance abuse for a patient in recovery. When the feel the urge to use or misuse their substance of
choice, they are encouraged to be aware of the thoughts and dynamics behind the craving. Also, to "play the tape"
through and ascertain what would happen if indeed they were to use again. This could be applied to eating, anxieties or PTSD
flare-ups. It is also the act of being focused in the present, versus living in the past or anticipating events in the future.

what we take from the event (second) and the impacts of the action across time and space on others (third and fourth). Every
action expends energy which is not lost or wasted. Results sometimes are not expected but they as well have all 4 dimensions
attached to them.
Ask yourself what am I contributing, what are my skillsets and what can I learn. as well , what
are the impacts to others. As Harry Chapin wrote..we are but short stories. A brave person looks at all facets of what they
do and the impact on others and quantifies that to the premisises of primum non nocere.
What and who truly are
we at the end of the day left with our conscience, subconscience, with the Ego and SuperEgo removed? What impacts can we make,
have we made and shall we choose to make? What contributions and tally sheet do we have looking at debits vs credits on the
