@cp6401 That is an interesting observation about your meditation practice. I am curious what prompted you to stop meditating, and have you thought about trying another meditation technique? This time of year, especially, it is beneficial to have a measure of control in your responses to stressors!

Thanks for the reply ginger
I’ve toyed with the idea of trying it again.. I used to love the way it made me feel after awhile of doing it ..and to your point, I’ve also wondered about other approaches. Like transcendental meditation.. the idea of keeping the brain busy with a mantra while the rest of the mind relaxes and recovers is intriguing.. but I’ve read that ppl think it’s evil etc.. I’m not the most religious person, I have my beliefs.. but I heard you had to get a mantra from a guru etc .. bah.. and ooommmm never really worked for me. I’m quite confused right now about religion to be honest.. as a family I talk to my kids about bedtime.. the power of intention etc..the wife also has her beliefs, but doesn’t practice, I also have a sister who is into other worldly things.. I don’t know.. my ocd makes it worse. I feel like I’m religiously confused lol..perhaps this is all tied in together somehow..
