Mindfulness: The Spice Of Life (A Commercial)

[Delivered in a manner that's familiar to anyone who has ever listened to a radio or television ad].

"Hi, everyone-- The Mindful Law Guy, here! You know, we're all born with 5 senses, and not surprisingly, creative minds have invented scores of different products to enhance most all of the information that comes to us through our senses-- and now, there's one thing that enhances everything-- MINDFULNESS!

But wait a minute, there's more-- it's free! And it doesn't require any shipment or assembly! Sound too good to be true? Well, it's not-- mindfulness is as real as a turtle on a fencepost-- upside down!

What's the catch? Well, if you're skeptical of mindfulness or meditation, and things like thoughts or feelings, you might feel like you're at a disadvantage, but you'd be wrong! For only $19.95 you can buy a book that'll help you overcome your skepticism and begin living the life you always dreamed of!".

Sadly, many people tune out when they read or hear the words, "mindfulness" or "meditation". That's their loss but it's our misfortune, because neither mindfulness nor meditation deserve that kind of reaction and the world would be a much better place if more of us were mindful and/or meditators.

Curiously, the insulting and obnoxious tone of the kinds of commercials mimicked above doesn't appear to be a turn-off for a lot of folks, so maybe proponents of mindfulness/meditation need to change our approach.

Anything that doesn't promise profit or have a commercial bent, is obviously woo woo, tree-hugging, incense-burning B.S. so why bother?

I wish I could blithely brush off the ignorance or skepticism of people who harbor that kind of sentiment, but I can't. So here goes.....

Neither mindfulness nor meditation require any assembly or shipment-- and their free!
