Meditation is contra-indicated for those with a psychosis.
And in my opinion is unsuitable for those with strong psychological defence mechanisms. For instance, if you find argument is your default defence mechanism, then meditation is unlikely to be suitable for you.
And if sex is a defence mechanism for you, then meditation is unsuitable.
However if you are fairly relaxed and in touch with yourself and those around you, then meditation may enhance your life and those around you.
Meditation can be induced by any repetition. A common repetition is saying, "Oom", over and over again as you move deeper into meditation. Or you may focus on your breath as it repeats over and over again.
In a print based culture we tend to meditate as individuals, in other words we meditate alone. But in an electronic culture we are starting to meditate together.
As my mantra I have chosen to read, "Wind in the Willows", over and over again. And even more interesting, I have chosen to read, "Wind in the Willows", aloud over the telephone, turn and turn about.
So if you are free from psychosis and strong psychological defence mechanisms and you are not obsessed with sex, then you may wish to share the meditative state with me over the telephone by reading, "Wind in the Willow", aloud turn and turn about.
So if you think meditation will enhance your life and those around you, send me your telephone number and I will send you a copy of, "Wind in the Willows", for your computer screen. And we will share our meditation over the phone.
