Is there a right or wrong way to meditate. Right now I close my eyes and breathe, sitting on chair. But Vipassana says to do body scan, Silence and Spiders at a 10-Day Vipassana Meditation Course Is this necessary to force this What if person just sits down closes their eyes and breathe? Won't their mind eventually focus and clear. I was starting to read a book year ago, Science of Religion, https://www.amazon.com/Science-Religion-Framework-Peace/dp/0978726413 First chapter or so says 1. There was nuclear ice age 100s of thousands of years ago 2. People hid in caves to protect from cold 3. To keep comfortable from the cold and be aware of animals and other predators, they sat in semi-conscius state, near the fire. 4. 100s of thousands of years later this is known as meditation The people who came out of these caves were tall and powerful. Think of Lord Shiva (see, we call him Lord). He is depicted as meditating in a cave. Look at how grand and tall he is depicted. Can you give your comments. What do you think of meditation. For me, I am using meditation as a process to make peace with all that has been going on with health.
