Mindful or Mindless?

< Other discussions

Mindfulness is a state of conscious awareness in which we are implicitly aware of the context and content of information. It is a state of openness to novelty in which we actively construct categories and distinctions. Mindlessness is a state of mind characterized by a reliance on categories and distinctions drawn in the past. We are oblivious to novel (or simply alternative) aspects of the situation. Sometimes, we transit from mindfulness through mindlessness toward meditation.
