A graphic designer called Giedrius recently wrote to me from Lithuania, telling me that he had created the symbol above to represent “being here and now – the idea of mindfulness.” He said:
This is an open source symbol that can universally represent mindfulness. It can also work as a reminder that can help people to be aware of the present moment.
His website gives more background information on the symbol:
When you see this symbol, anywhere – in public, personal or virtual spaces – it will work as a reminder for you to become aware of this present moment.
Firstly, this symbol is presented like a physical representation of present moment.
