My first time here. The passage is very pertinent. I have been ‘stepping out of my prevarication’ and ‘doing the work’, including meditation. I was so intent that I think I became exhausted and fell back into depression. Four weeks later I feel like I'm coming up again. Stay tuned 😆

George, thanks as always for your blistering honesty and clarity in your own journey. And a reminder that nothing takes the place of a little quiet awareness of the breath.

I have not tried meditation -- yet. I also don't like the "political" implications, so will have to separate that out, in order to try it. I can say that I have found that nothing takes the place of a self-induced orgasm. No one to argue with about it, no pressure of reciprocity, no need to answer about it -- only to drift off to a hopefully blissful -- or at least escaping -- sleep.

Meditation doesn't care about anyone's politics.

Many people who instruct on meditation, who coach it, who recommend it, have an agenda. I am not referring to anyone on this site specifically, but speaking in general. They use it as a way to give an opiate to the masses.
