Light meditation...
    #2120297 - 11/18/03 05:25 PM (13 years, 21 days ago)

This term is one of the few things in life that bugs
me. People say this to me all the time.
What exactly do they mean by "Light meditation" ?!
I suspect that people who say things like this
don't really understand what meditation is all about.
I think they visualize "intense meditation" as
someone with their eyes closed who appears to be
straining hard till they're constipated  :mad:
and lite-meditation to be the shiny-happy variaty
practiced by moms in spandax in gyms. Meditation is
one of the most abused terms on the planet.
People have even equated relaxing to Meditation.
The only reason this troubles me is that the word
is so generalized and vague now that it's lost all
meaning - saying that I meditate communicates nothing.
In my mind meditation is meditation, there is no light
or intense meditation scept for perhaps the duration.
Also, one can meditate even during a conversation, one
doesn't have to sit in a contrived position looking
like they're about to spontaneously combust...
sorry, but my ego just had to vent  :smirk:

I always thought what people meant by 'light meditation' was non-transcendental meditation...which I consider to be 'heavy meditation' I guess.
