I think a LOT of people restrict Mindfulness to just Anapanasati which is wrong.
Mindfulness I think (and I feel is what the Buddha taught) is simple awareness of your Mind. In everyday life situations - you see,hear, smell, taste ,feel with body different things both pleasant and unpleasant. The Undisciplined wordling who has not heard the Buddha's teaching does the following (He does not see these things as - Impermanent, Without a Self, Cause a suffering) and so he attaches to it which leads to either Greed or Aversion.
But the instructed Wordling who has heard the teaching watches it as it is (Impermanent, Without a Self, cause of suffering) and does not attach to it and watches it go away as it arises.
Can this be considered as Mindfulness?.
Identification with my country is one of my fetters.
