Wayfarer: Oh! That’s quite a pleasant surprise, actually. 🙂
Rose Cinderfall: …thank @Chirotractor for me being here tonight
Wayfarer: Okay, so, tonight we’re talkin’ us some of that meditation.
Wayfarer: It’s been a bit of a crazy day so forgive me if I go fast or cut short. Meditation is nice to do. But why are we talking about meditation?
Wayfarer: Specifically the topic talks about meditation as a foundation. While I am all about extolling the virtues of, for example, calm-abiding meditation in helping us find inner peace and truths and so on, it’s not really why we want to talk about it.
Wayfarer: There’s a conception I think generally that meditation is something we want to practice in order to gain focus so that we can use more of our brains. But the whole “we only use 10% of our minds” thing is a dumb oversimplification, and it’s not like there’s an upper limit on how much we can focus on something. So, meditation as a foundation.
