Mindfulness Makes You Less Caring?, Karma’s Role A recent research report, “Study indicates a brief mindfulness meditation exercise results in blunted moral reactions” https://www.psypost.org/2019/08/study-indicates-a-brief-mindfulness-meditation-exercise-results-in-blunted-moral-reactions-54245 came up with a mind-blowing conclusion: that practicing mindfulness makes you less caring. Surprising given that some of the biggest names in spirituality recommend mindfulness, such as the Dali Lama and Thich Nhat Hanh. Similarly, Eckhart Tolle teaches being present, focusing on the moment, which is very similar to mindfulness. How can this be? Author Madis Senner who will be speaking…… YOUR VENUE, WHEN says it because of karma. He believes that everything has karma, and because of this everything picks up karma. Over time the accumulation of karma will begin to change and alter the original intent and purpose of things, whether it be mindfulness, a religion, an organization, or… In his book Everything Has Karma: Learning to Embrace Our Interconnectedness, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0990874427?pf_rd_p=183f5289-9dc0-416f-942e-e8f213ef368b&pf_rd_r=S60ENWP0B4CFVD60JAVA Senner looked at how wonderful practices such as the energy healing technique of Reiki has devolved over time. To make his point he turned to a book on mindfulness, What's Wrong with Mindfulness (And What Isn't): Zen Perspectives. Editors Barry Magid and Robert Rosenbaum argued that Mindfulness has been misappropriated by the Western marketplace and been commercialized; and is now being practiced on business retreats, at medical centers, by sports teams, by the military and more. All of these various practitioners (business people, athletes, soldiers…) of mindfulness have had an influence in shaping what it has become today. Sadly, they have run over its reverence and spiritual dimension. Because of this mindfulness has suffered. As Simon Schindler, the author of the study noted, “Mindfulness — without being embedded in an ethical context — may thus have downsides regarding interpersonal and moral behavior that have been so far ignored by researchers and also practitioners…” So, yes, it may well be the Mindfulness today can make you less caring. No doubt more research needs to be undertaken to study this. If you are interested in learning about karma, why everything has karma and how it affects you Senner will be discussing his new book Everything Has Karma
