Mindfulness doesn’t cost anything. You need to find out how to practice it and then you’re good to go. There are apps, books, websites all about it and it’s a very helpful tool.
However, it really bugs me when I see people charging for this knowledge. I know that people need to make ends meet but I argue that if you believe so much in a message you would want to share it with as many people as possible without the “paying to find out about it” part.
I’ve learnt a Hell of stuff from Buddhism and it’s so out of copyright it’s unreal but people feel the need to repackage it and charge people for a thought process that is thousands of years old. How can you charge for it?
My goal in life is to share what I’ve learnt and share it freely with people. I want to spread the message of mindfulness and Buddhism as far as I can. I’m not sure how I can do it but it’s something I want to do and to do it for free.
I am setting up mirrors of this blog onto various free “mirror” sites in the hope that there will be a backup should there ever be a reason for my blog to not be around.
I don’t know if I’ll achieve what I want to achieve but I can only hope.
