Mindfulness is said to have no purpose other than to experience reality directly and simply. This is true. But it is useful in the alchemical sense of realizing that the lower experiences like sexual desire and fighting to survive are "made up" of the same basic vibrating "material" as the higher experiences such as community, prayer, and higher consciousness.

The various mindfulness practices on this site are designed to get you in touch with the basic experiences which underly the physical and spiritual dimesions.
