What is the difference between mindfulness and self-consciousness?

I would say it’s looking at oneself through objective eyes and others’ eyes respectively.

If “God is watching”, then is the awareness of this both mindfulness and self-consciousness at the same time? Is self-consciousness then a good thing?

All thoughts welcome!

“Mindfulness” generally connotes less evaluation, a non-judgmental present awareness.

Mindfulness is intense focus on the here and now, and does not require ‘self’.
