If you have tried something called Mindfulness, thumbs up or thumbs down? I’m taking a survey here, Dharmawheel, and on a Zen forum. Thanks!

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With no struggling, no thinking,
the mind, still,
will see cause and effect
vanishing in the Void.
Attached to nothing, letting go:
Know that this is the way
to allay all stress.

- Upasika Kee Nanayan

Five stars out of five here. I’ll give it another day or two and post preliminary results, including my own vote

No one here will give a thumbs down. Mindfulness is essential. It's one of the five spiritual faculties, one of the five strengths/powers, one of the seven factors of Awakening, and right mindfulness is one of the factors of the Noble Eightfold Path.
