Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.’

~ Isaac Asimov

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The influences of the senses has in most men overpowered the mind to the degree that the walls of space and time have come to look solid, real and insurmountable; and to speak with levity of these limits in the world is the sign of insanity.”

Mindfulness is an impartial watchfulness. It does not take sides. It does not get hung up in what is perceived. It just perceives. Mindfulness does not get infatuated with the good mental states. It does not try to sidestep the bad mental states. There is no clinging to the pleasant, no fleeing from the unpleasant. Mindfulness sees all experiences as equal, all thoughts as equal, all feelings as equal. Nothing is suppressed. Nothing is repressed. Mindfulness does not play favorites.

From “Mindfulness in Plain English”

Dicen que los esquimales tienen muchas palabras para distinguir distintos tipos de nieve, ya que dependiendo del estado, el tipo de nieve tiene una función u otra.

En España tenemos :

Me da igual
me la pela
me la suda
yo que sé
no va conmigo
me la trae floja
es lo que hay
ajo y agua
que me importa
tu dirás
tu mismo/a

etc…etc…

Son expresiones que nos exoneran de cualquier responsabilidad por lo que esté pasando al nuestro alrededor.
¿Será por que la indiferencia sea una cualidad que prevalece en nuestra cultura?
