Why mindfulness cannot be the all-in-one solution to self-transformation

Mindfulness has its benefits, but it also has its pitfalls. In this article, Sahanika Ratnayake relates her experience of mindfulness and shares to us why she thinks that it cannot be used as a solution to all modern ills.

Mindfulness is so revolutionary that it has become a standard for many corporations, institutions, and lately, schools. While it is true that mindfulness allows us to be calmer, and relaxed (which are all very important in this world of busy and stress), and to detach ourselves from overwhelming feelings, but it should not be used as a solution to all modern ills. 

In this article written by Sahanika Ratnayake, she relates to us her experience of mindfulness, and explores the down falls of this approach. Ratnayake’s work shows us that truly, mindfulness is an important tool to help us be more present. But if, through your discernment you discover that your purpose in life is to transform the world towards a brighter future, mindfulness should only be seen as a first step. As you awaken to who you are, you will need to explore other ways to understand the world process and your role in it.
