Mindful : April 2018
Barry Boyce Editor-in-Chief firstname.lastname@example.org Our must-read story this issue: “Constant Craving” maps out how we get hooked on bad habits—and how mindfulness can help us break them. On page 60. Mindfulness for All The present moment. It’s a won- drous thing. From some perspec- tive, it’s all we’ve got, since noth- ing happens that doesn’t happen within it. And yet, somehow, we’ve managed to almost ruin it. Like an overzealous parent at his son’s or daughter’s tee-ball game, we’ve put too much pressure on it. So modest, so ordinary, so simple—the present moment has been forced to become a really big deal. Suppos- edly, you arrive there and every- thing is beautiful, all problems are solved, and all cares float away. It’s no wonder all the hype surrounding mindfulness has spawned more than a few skep- tics, who rightly think, “Nothing could be that good.” And yet, in spite of all the overblown rhetoric, there remains something innately appealing about the notion of being mindful. My email address has mindful in it, and when I’m asked for it by a salesperson, a pause often ensues. They might say, “Mindful. That’s really lovely. I want some of that.” When the Foundation for a Mindful Society was formed and launched Mindful, we were moved by something very basic: the power of being right where we are. Now we’re celebrating—along with our readers, contributors, and support- ers—our fifth anniversary, and are proud to say that mindful.org is in its seventh year. We called it Mindful because that’s something we are, not some- thing we have to do. It’s not another PHOTOGRAPHSBYMARVINMOORE,ZACHCORDNER,MARKMAHANEY,WOODSWHEATCROFT,ANDJOSHUASIMPSON.
