The End of Mindfulness

“I hope that while so many people are out smelling the flowers, someone is taking the time to plant some.”
(Herbert Rappaport)

Practicing mindfulness through meditation is a wonderful method for managing life. It has become so common even big companies are betting millions of dollars on meditation rooms, guides, and mobile apps. Everyone seems to be talking (or whispering) about it.

I personally love it…when I do it. In so many ways, meditation is like pushing the pause button we always talk about at ScreamFree. But here’s my main question: What do we do afterwards? When you open your eyes, and open your mind to the beauty of life around you, then what?

  • Are you taking that newfound gratitude to then give more time and resources to the underprivileged?
    How are others directly benefiting from your newfound calm? Is it contagious?
    As you awaken to the beauty of life, are you also motivated to heal some of its ugliness?
  • I know how ancient teachers of meditation would answer these questions; what I’m interested in is how we amateurs answer them with our habits and practices. By all means meditate and find inner peace; then let’s work together to make outer peace with each other and our environment.
