A respectful article on mindfulness? In Scientific American?

You mean, no more yogis floating over our heads, or gurus on mountaintops, to make fun of the idea that the mind is real and that what we think matters?

Well, let’s not get up our hopes. But all that said, Scientific American offers a respectful article on mindfulness, a fundamental concept of no-materialist neuroscience here.

A concept that has proven itself in clinical research.

It’s not that medications don’t work, but people cannot live on a steady diet of them. It is much wiser to manage a smaller dose, using mindfulness (concentrating on what you hope to achieve) than to hope for the Big Zap!! that fixes everything.

The good/bad news is that the mind is real.

News writer Denyse O’Leary is co-author of The Spiritual Brain.

All they point out can be ascribed to interference with the memory and a realization of how important the memory is. Memory is the problem in mans thinking problems and nothing to do with his brain. We are just souls intellectually. Robert Byers
I have read The Spiritual Brain by Mario Beauregard and Denyse O'Leary. Really a wonderful book proving that we can come to know God through and with science. I highly recommend! Babamar
