this meme needs to end
>>
>>35175745
I meditate before sleeping daily and I don't think about sex during the day so my dreams are basically sexless. According to taoist teachings I have reached an advanced level as almost all practitioners lose their seed through nocturnal emissions in the first 100 days. The funny thing about all this is that the teachings say you that you will become highly attractive to women while retaining which I am definitely experiencing, I am getting eye fucked 24/7 and women are making moves on me constantly. The irony of it all.

Sound point. Its more picking a focal point though, if you try run without thought you'll be seeing zyzz after getting hit by a truck.

Probably not. There's a physical limitation in terms of physics when it comes to lifting. Humans are really fucking good at running, but even than, there are physical limitations still at play. Taking a shit, eating, drinking, muscle degradation, etc.

Meditation is just self-hypnosis with extra superstition. Self-hypnosis is useful.
>>
>>35176298


How can there be superstition in meditation? Meditation is training your brain toward non-conceptual states.
>>
>>35176445
Some people conceptualize those states in the abstract, or give them some sort of supernatural value or power outside of the meditative period. You don't have to be a faggy hippy about any of it like that, but basically at that point there's only small differences between focus exercises, meditation, and self-hypnosis.

Meditation is certainly dumb.

It's sad, because it's a folk science that could actually be useful if it was somehow divorced from its religious background.

There are empirically derived mental exercises that have measurable, tangible benefits (far beyond muh brainscans) like WOOP, willpower training, etc, but I don't think these actually hit the same system that meditation attempts to.

>>35176298
This is probably the closest to correct there is, but that doesn't mean there's not a way to get to the same state without lying to yourself.
>>
>>35176841
Pretty sure meditation in the west is almost entirely divorced from its religious origins. Doing it the Buddhist way just tends to work well because Buddhists have been polishing their methods for a long time.

Combine your meditation with doing planks, senpai.

All the plebs in this thread

Meditation is fucking great m8. It takes progressive overload to get real benefits. It's literally the single most effective form of emotional mastery and therapy. Only drawback is it takes a lot of discipline. Something y'all /fit/izens should be developing anyway.

Feels good mang
>>
Thanks for reminding me OP, I'd forgotten to do it the past few days
>>
Isn't meditation really just focused stoicism + being a fag about it? What speaks against practicing the techniques while you go about your life without sitting down like a little queerboy? Basically what I've been doing tbhfam
>>
I meditate for about 10-20 min a day. there's no religion or spirituality to it for me, I just sit in silence and doing nothing. it's kinda relaxing.

I also gotta try to remind myself to be mindful more.

>The funny thing about all this is that the teachings say you that you will become highly attractive to women while retaining which I am definitely experiencing, I am getting eye fucked 24/7 and women are making moves on me constantly.

I think this might have to do with you lifting.

wht do you guys get out of it? in the long run?
will it help me clear my head of the storm of thoughts and anxiety that plagues me daily?

basically i need something to "chill me out" but it can't be a drug. Think meditation is what i need?
>>
>>35179252
i recently started meditating again and the next day i noticed reduced physical symptoms of anxiety
could be placebo, but im not completely new to meditating
