The Quest for Mindfulness

Dion Peoples

Abstract


Mindfulness” was inserted as a term for determining where analysis can or could begin – when discussing mindfulness.  Of course an antagonist may suggest: use of the word mindfulness was taken or put into operation out of its intended context.  The answers to these questions can be in the affirmative or also in the negative.  The point is to answer the questions, the point is to respond to the scenario – regardless of the outcome.  The point is to exercise the mind.  This was already known; but above is a mere exercise in word-replacement.  The onus (burden or obligation) of the research now urges an answer to the above questions and demands.  Reread everything written before this conclusion, and notice that the term “mindfulness” replaces common-terminology when analytical-criteria are discussed – instead of another randomly chosen popular Buddhist term.  Each vocabulary-term will demand a different response when using the Buddhist critical thinking skills criteria.  The methods to employ Buddhist-style critical thinking skills have now been employed. Proceed with your mindful endeavors in Buddhism, with mindfulness.
