Why practice mindfulness?

In All articles, Inspirations, Making sense of mindfulness by Norman Lamont

I  can’t really find a better explanation than this quote from guitarist Robert Fripp:

Robert Fripp

The quality of our perceptions determines how we see the world;
how we see the world determines our judgement;
our judgement determines how we interact with the world;
how we interact with the world changes the world.

So, the quality of our perceptions changes the world. How we see the world changes the world.
