fopylo Posted December 22, 2022 Share Posted December 22, 2022 Sometimes in life you feel very miserable, overwhelmed to the point that it's hard for you to breath, or just have too much resentment stored inside... Sometimes you have those moments of happiness, joy and laughter... But many time, like now - none of those extremes. I'm just living regularly. I don't try to latch on problems (don't have any serious ones that are consuming my energy). But yeah, here and there, a problem; here and there some laughter. But I'm not telling myself "Alright, I need to start meditating". I just don't feel any need for it. I'll simplify it. I only feel the desire for meditation when life gets tough, but otherwise, when life is more comfortable, I don't feel a drive for it. If I'm ok then I'll just go on my laptop and be on Youtube all day and maybe talk to some friends. You lot may say that there's more to meditation other than the alleviation of discordant thoughts (emotions), and that stopping there won't give me the full benefit of meditation. So my question is first of all - Is there a reason for meditation other than for the alleviation of discordant thoughts? Followup - If so, for what? And why meditate when you're already feeling ok?
