Mindfulness and what happens when we forget its roots. It seems that many of the modern interpretations fail to unveil the real gem hidden inside traditional meditation practices and accessible only by practice and more practice. It's not about about happiness or money but about recognizing that we can be happy with a lot of money or few money. It's not the money that will make us happy but we may can use the money for many useful things and to increase the general wellbeing not just ours.

Mindfulness is not a program and technique. It is a practice which draws from the root "praxis." Having said this, mindfulness and being present are important in teaching.

Mindfulness and meditation are essential components in busy lives. Sitting and walking meditation are the practice for life and all its complexities. If there is a goal and I am not sure there should be, it is to be present, be present, and help the world be a better place. That is not a corporate bottom-line.
