There is more need for mindfulness and awareness of thought and emotion in the LDS faith. If Mormonism encompasses all truth WHEREEVER it is taught, they we can greatly profit from much of what Buddhism teaches in principle.

When it comes to emotional rough patches, our only answer is "pray more" and "repent". In our journey towards perfection, we stress ourselves out and, unfortunately, burn out.

I would love to see more gospel based mindfulness and awareness teachings. I think the LDS faithful would benefit greatly from words like "let go", "allow", "self-compassion", "non-judgement", "let it be", and "I accept what is".

This kind of article needs to appear weekly or more often in the Deseret News.
