Mindfulness is Intentionality

Mindfulness to me is intentionality that even in silence is thoughtfully applied. Intentionality of quiet contemplation is to guide the process in a mindful way. Otherwise, to me all you have if there is no intentionality is mindlessness, and not mindfulness. Knowledge can lead us to a feeling of superiority or selfness. Wisdom reminds me of the superiority of kindness leading us back to a feeling of others thus togetherness. By Damien Marie AtHope The Buddhist term translated into English as “mindfulness” originates in the Pali term sati and in its Sanskrit counterpart smṛti. The translation of sati and smṛti as mindfulness is confusing. The terms sati/smriti have also been translated as:Attention AwarenessConcentrated attention Inspection Mindful attentionSelf-recollection Recollecting mindfulness Recollection Secondary consciousness RetentionPresence https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mindfulness   Reasons for or Types of Atheism My Blog, My Memes & Short-writing or Quotes Here is my external pages or content: Facebook Witter Page, My YouTube, My Linkedin, Twitter: @AthopeMarie, Instagram: damienathope, Personal Facebook Page, Secondary Personal Facebook Page, Main Atheist Facebook Page, Secondary Atheist Facebook Page, Facebook Leftist Political Page, Facebook Group: Atheist for Non-monogamy, Facebook Group: (HARP) Humanism, Atheism, Rationalism, & Philosophy and My...

Hate the Dogmatic-Propaganda Not the People

Religion is a joke to rationality, that sadly, too many believe. I hate the Dogmatic-Propaganda that is religion not the indoctrinated victims who believe it.

As I do hold people accountable for harmful behaviors and religion as it is today is not a reason for harm, it is a commonly used excuse employed by those who wish to...
