Why Mindlessness Is Better Than Mindfulness

November 1, 2016

I disagreed with the use of the word mindfulness, and suggested using the word mindlessness with respect to healing, whilst having a discussion about transforming and healing life situations.

Mindfulness is defined as…

a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.

However, it is the mind that thinks or has thoughts, and it is those very thoughts, especially the negative ones together with negative emotions, that seem to create the pain from undesirable perceptions and experiences in life.

So I feel that mindfulness, without having an effective definition, is a confusing word to use to for a therapy or healing technique.

The above definition, however, contains close to the truth of how to break free from unhappiness, negativity, and problems.

But how do you calmly acknowledge and accept feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations when you are, or have been right in the midst of a mild or intense negative moment?

Transcending the mind and its thoughts is part of the solution.

That is why ‘mindlessness’ seems to be a more appropriate word to use, especially with respect to healing.

  1. Within the realm of objects, nature always fills the empty space by something. Similarly, a conscious mind can never stay empty, it fills will thoughts as long as consciousness continues. So while dwelling on the present helps on the mindfulness only when its a pleasurable one. When its negative and energy draining or tries to solve a life puzzle which always draws the maximum life-energy of an individual, the best could be do divert it into something whatever gives joy; and give a damn to the existing one.

    1. Hello pranab,
      It is when you perceive your thoughts as negative and having negative energy that drains your life energy that you start a journey of further negative perceptions, experiences, and perhaps suffering.

      However, such perception is the perfect opportunity to transform and heal your life situations which is topic that requires detail for which there is too much to go here, but you can find out more in a free report at this link https://www.karavadra.net/transform
