Meditation, in small doses can it have large effect? your thoughts on this article
I just wanted to get your thoughts/opinions on this article i found today on a blog from a psychology website, it claims meditation can have a large effect even when taken in small doses.

http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/chok...big-effect

I myself like to meditate, granted I don't believe it's going to heal me or give any powers or open a third eye or any of that kind of thing, but it does relax me greatly and I find it easier to concentrate on art and music projects afterwards. Anyone care to add their two cents??

I have never tried it, but I am sure it is quite good for clearing your head and relaxing and such.

I am also sure it can improve ones outlook on things... But, I wouldn't know where to start.

I'll just stick to my photocannabinoids...

I meditate sometimes. It helps to calm me down and ease tension. I do yoga occasionally too. I used to do it every day, but I've gotten lazy about it. I don't believe there is anything supernatural about those kinds of things either.

I suck at sitting still and meditating. The best meditation I find is when I am working on a car or bike.

Like when I'm transplanting seedlings. Focused concentration, and the world disappears. Sitting still is for sleeping.

Two things come to mind....

One -
Quote:While they meditated, people wore a cap full of electrodes, creating a picture of their brain activity.

Does the act of measuring change what you are measuring?


Two - some people go through life never thinking at all. They've got the boob tube or an Ipod blasting all the time so all they have to do is absorb like a big sponge. A little actual thinking might do their brains some good.
Of course, so would reading a book as long as it wasn't the stupid fucking bible.

When I meditate it's mainly a practice of positive thinking. It's sort of like day dreaming, honestly. I love quite and still contemplation.

The homeopathic theory of the effectiveness of meditation..hehehehe. Just one question, can someone meditate for me and then send that energy over telephone lines if the price is right?
