>>25537677 Mental acuity is unimportant beyond a certain level. Above a certain threshold and you're counting spilled matchsticks and screaming that you have an even number of tendies as opposed to an odd number of tendies.
Meh, it helped me. I've been on every kind of medication, been to every kind of therapy and I've still been majorly depressed for the last 10 years and attempted suicide at least a dozen times.
It sounds like hippy bullshit but this is the first time I have ever felt like there is actually a purpose to my life and that I want to experience the world, and I can attribute it without a doubt to the meditation.
It takes practice, but I totally reccomend it. At first I could go no more than 10-15 minutes without getting distracted, sometimes less than 5 minutes, but now I can get myself into that deep state almost instantly and hold it for hours. When I slowly bring myself back round I feel great, energized and content.
>university required psychology class >professor makes us do "meditation" for a half hour >have to put our heads down in our hands and go through all of these breathing steps and "visualizations" >just get angrier and angrier at my time being wasted on this stupid shit
Even trying by myself I just don't get any benefit from that shit. Making me lay my head down and "meditate" is probably the dumbest shit I've ever had to do.
