In brief: Mindfulness

Mindfulness means to pay attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, without judgment.
In this you're keeping your consciousness alive to present reality, rather than automatically behaving from fixed patterns. This allows life and compassion into a relationship -- even the one you have with yourself!

In brief: Think of others

When you think and act for another that is a relationship.
When you don't there is nothing.
