Diving into mindfulness

Updated: Nov 20, 2021


Taking a deep dive into mindfulness is a great way to enjoy this exquisite art. It will definitely make you have a greater appreciation for it.

Mindfulness is unique because the Universe tells you a story through the music of its vibrations. And, after all, the Universe vibrations are excellent at conveying energy, constant motion, emotions, feelings, and sometimes even secrets. “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” (Nikola Tesla).

As mindfulness involves music of the Universe, and music involves voice and words, you might be wondering what language mindfulness unfolds in.


What language is practised in mindfulness?

What about when it comes to sharing?


Whether you’re new to mindfulness or want to dig deeper into this world, learning about the language is helpful.

This way, the next time you’ll have a better understanding of this art.

Let’s find out what language mindfulness is practiced in.


Origin of mindfulness


Mindfulness originated from ancient eastern and Buddhist philosophy and dates back around 2500 years.

The Bible says about mindfulness a lot more than you might think! These 65 Bible verses about mindfulness are organized into 10 topic categories like meditation, attention, and gratitude.

The concept of mindfulness was introduced to the western world by Jon Kabat-Zinn.


What Language Is Used in Mindfulness?


Since now you have some knowledge about the history of mindfulness, let’s look at what language mindfulness is practiced in.

As my mindfulness originated in Italy, the language of choice for me was Italian. Even with my different mother tongue I prefer to meditate in this language. One of the reasons for choosing one language over other languages is because of its connection to the environment. Think about the terminology used in everyday life, in every moment.

I find words like “tempo”, "amore", "felicita", “allegro”, “crescendo”, “adagio” etc, which are all Italian.


Should Mindfulness Be Translated?


When sharing mindfulness in its practiced language, I can convey its original vision.

Therefore, when mindfulness is shared in its native language and is not translated, it preserves its authenticity.

Although translations of meditations are popular and useful, there are issues with this.

If you’ve used any translation software or studied language, you know a literal translation doesn’t always work. For instance, a translation cannot always convey emotions, what to say about energy vibrations.

When you share your mindfulness, every word/phrase of your text transmits the energy, the music.

Now think about the process of translating it into another language.

Not only should it convey the message clearly, but the words have to coincide with vibrations, to rhyme with the music.

As a result, it can be quite confusing for readers to comprehend a translated mindfulness.

So, ideally, mindfulness shouldn’t be translated.

Imagine having to see written mindfulness and not understanding a word.

Do you think you could feel the same vibrations as if you actually understood it? How much do you think you could really grasp?

Instead, imagine reading a translated version. Wouldn’t you feel frustrated for not comprehending mindfulness in its original language?


Do You Have to Learn Italian?


Italian is beautiful, melodic, and romantic. And Italian is the main language in opera. For this reason, if you like opera you have some knowledge about Italian grammar, vocabulary, and spelling. Even though you do not necessarily have to learn Italian, having some linguistic background would definitely be beneficial to you. Not only is Italian the language of opera, but also the language of dеѕіgn, аrtѕ, cuisine, wine, love, landscapes.


Should I Learn Italian to Enjoy Mindfulness?


You don’t necessarily have to learn Italian to enjoy mindfulness.

Remember when you practice mindfulness you usually use the language you prefer, so that you can enjoy your mindfulness in its original language, contemplate, observe and comprehend.

However, learning Italian would definitely make your experience in Sicily more enjoyable.

You’ll also feel proud for understanding what Sicilians are saying without having to check every word.

In any case, learning a second language is always beneficial. To be specific, there are many benefits when it comes to learning Italian.

For instance, if you learn Italian, you’ll be able to socialize with Italians and learn about their culture.

By connecting and communicating with them in their native language, you’ll be able to grasp the subtleties of Italian culture, which is amazing!

Just think of Italy’s history, art, music, literature, architecture, landscapes, food, wine…

You’ll be able to learn much more about all of that if you do it in Italian.

And if you’re into music of energy vibrations in Sicily, you’ll definitely appreciate them much better if you know some Italian.

You don’t need to be bilingual, though, to enjoy mindfulness.

Start by getting used to its cosmic vibrations.

Never forget that you are always welcome on the italian-language version of this Mindfulness Blog!
