I was really pissed off when I wrote my last post so I thought I’d do a post about something that is the antithesis of anger – meditation. When you meditate, you’re affecting the brain DIRECTLY. When you’re doing all those repetitions of stuff, you’re affecting the brain INDIRECTLY. Both ways of affecting the brain are incredibly important and vital. There is no question that meditation changes the brain. Look at all this research. Everyone thinks meditation involves clearing out the mind. Well I can’t do that. It’s impossible for me to do that. As much as I tell my mind to stop and not think about anything, it’s going a mile a minute. No matter what. That’s why I love the type of meditation that I do. A lot of the meditations that I do keep the mind active. This allows me to meditate while dealing with my always working mind. I’m slowly getting to the point that I can just clear out my mind. I’m far from that point right now.
