Mindfulness – Philosophy or Religion ?

To this query on a site for Therapists discussion I sent :

Requiring a “Like/dislike / value” judgment in order to comment in this discussion seems a distraction, & inconsistent with the practice of mindfulness — I ask that this tiny red distraction be dropped.
To the original question : Gautama Buddha/ Siddhartha/ Shakyamuni [it doesn’t matter who we call him] certainly admonished his followers not to worship him, yet humans seem neurologically programmed toward worship, categorization and digital/yes-no thinking.
Philosophy or religion? It really doesn’t matter, and it is neither, and it is both. What matters is how we can return from distractions back to mindful awareness. DrBobDick.com
