>>7781910 Sometimes. Not as often as I should. It makes me feel considerably more concentrated whenever I do it. >>7781921 >Waste of time. Literally all you need to experience to benefits is to do it for 15-20 minutes a day. There are few better ways to spend 15 minutes.
>>7783660 Why do people like you who don't know anything about meditation talk as if they do and diss it? It's a very specific way of channeling thought and it definitely not replicated by just relaxing or whatever you think meditation is. Like seriously just put in a bit of effort next time.
Meditation is a cultural thing, scientifically speaking it's way better to be active, calculate, read, learn, think, listen than sit still and focus on stopping anything that goes around... Yes Again meditation is a cultural thing not a technique. /sci/ should meditate by hard work.
ITT people who think meditation is just sitting and being still.
Mindfullness meditation is actually hard work. You're supposed to completely shut out every thought but the one you decided to focus on. Like the pattern of your breathing. Have you ever tried to do that? Literally try it right now. I bet you that you can't last more than 10 seconds without your thoughts slipping away.

It's sad that meditation is surrounded by so much pseudo-science quackery but it actually is VERY beneficial. There are studies which have shown people's brain to literally get more wrinkly from meditating over an extended periods of time.

You're very mesmerized with Indian culture, but you have to acknowledge that all the cultural things your gurus told you they're helping in technical ways are just lies so that you would ignore the religious aspect of it.
You are free to believe in what you want but go to >>>/x/ with your stuff, control yourself over here.
>>7783689 Casual onlooker here. What a crazy world we live in. It never ceases to amaze how limited the average human being's faculty for perception actually is.
I see you as stripped down and undeveloped, but know I never will possess the higher perspective required to truly know I am not the same in a different (but probably better) way. Can only iterate over time, I suppose.
