Here’s what I think:
The fundamental ingredient of a mindful society is the consciousness of its people. The ways in which they express that consciousness, the way it plays out, are what will create that mindful world.
We see ourselves as a “cell” of a greater organism – the family, the community, the culture, the planet. Each family, community etc is also seen as a part of the greater organism (comprising an “organ”? ha!)
We are rewarded for being aware of our impact upon each other & the greater organism. People see that there are necessarily many kinds of “cells”, which all play a role in the life of the greater body. There are many mechanisms in the communities for improving that impact upon everyone else:
Sustainable methods of living, farming, building, etc
Incentives for doing volunteer work as young teens, & throughout adulthood
We can see the first stirrings of this happening in the contemporary moment. And also great resistance to it. So, “mindfulness” being brought about in a pervasive way IS possible ………………..
