Mindful : April 2014
6 mindful April 2014 our thoughts What do a policeman, a congressman, a new mother, a clothing designer, and a microbiologist have in com- mon? They’re all mindful—and all on the cover of Mindful in our first year. There’s a message there: being mindful is not about being any par ticular type of person. There is no meditative personality. Our ability to be aware and caring is a funda- mental characteristic of being a human being, and it can be cultivated. At Mindful and Mindful.org, we didn’t invent this message. We’re here to pass it on. Based on the results of our first year, it seems a growing number of people are interested in hearing and sharing stories of mindfulness in action, and in getting sound advice on how to enrich their lives with more mindfulness. Mindful readers envision a more at tentive and car- ing world. But they are also practical. Lofty visions are never realized when our feet are not touching the ground. No activity, in our view, is more practical and grounding than mindfulness meditation. That’s why this year, we’re launching a six-par t series called Getting Star ted. It will ser ve as a primer for anyone who wants to star t mixing mindfulness practice with ever yday life. If you’re new to mindfulness, it will indeed help you get star ted. If you’re familiar with mindfulness, it will serve as a reminder, and as something you can share with friends or family. May you enjoy Mindful as much as we enjoy putting it out there for you. And please con- tinue to let us know what being mindful means in your life. Starting Again — Barr y Boyce, Editor-in-Chief barr
