Forget Reading, Writing, and ‘Rithmatic …

What we REALLY need to teach our kids is Mindful Awareness.

What? You don’t know what “mindful Awareness” is? It is meditation. See, if we teach this to our kids, they will be more “mindful.” Achieving the following objectives:

-Approaching new experiences with curiosity and an open mind;
-Developing strong and stable attention;
-Seeing life experience clearly without an emotional charge;
-Developing compassionate action and relationships;
-Building communities with kindness and compassion;
-Working together to make a difference in the world;
-Expression gratitude; and
-Planting seeds of peace by nurturing common ground.

This is the kind of bullshit where the proponents use words like “transformational” and “contextualize” a lot.

I am SO glad we’ve gotten religion out of schools. It’s really freed up some for stuff like this.

Nature abhors a vacuum.
