Mindfulness knowledge should be free

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.
