    Meditation was/is for spiritual practices. It still should be, in my opinion.

    But I can't argue or complain, because it helps a lot of people out.

    It just seems like people may be abusing its powers. It deserves a lot more reverence. It goes back a lot father than you know.
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    Maybe so, but do you see his point?

    Gah! Metaphours, I have been doing nothing but bitching at you. I'm sorry!

    Let's make this a happy meditation thread! W/o arguments, k?

    Yeah I think so, too. But it serves a double purpose I guess.

    Meditation feels like letting the mind take a deep breath. You know that great floaty feeling when you take a deep breath? Meditation does that for the brain. I think it is in this depressurized state that allows the mind to focus on itself. It becomes pure perception. Perception that can be focused on nothing or intensely focused on one thing. The buzzing of day to day thoughts are exhausting so it is nice to get a relief from worrying about external affairs (probably the source of most buzzy thoughts) and sink into the peaceful no-color/every color of meditation.

    Charming, isn't it? People love my mind, but hate how I view things sometimes. My ENFP friend has attacked confronted me many times over how I think hahahaha
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    You nailed that one. That's what it is to me.

    Yes, same here. People belligerently bitch at me because I'm too quiet and I don't interact too well with some people, but with others I interact delightfully well. So the people who I don't interact well with, think I loath them, when in reality, I just feel indifferent about them.

    These are just some of the reasons I like to clear my mind

    Off topic/self pity:

    Sidenote: I knew I started a thread on meditation in here once... I even used to same story about going to work. It didn't even get a page of responses and this is already at four?!

    Metaphours is just cooler than me.
