Meditation has helped me so much, i consider it most important part of my practice
Great.
Isn't it astonishing that many people today assign much importance to physical fitness but totally neglect mental fitness? Meditation can be a good mental fitness training. Of course it has only temporary effects. If you stop the training the fitness deteriorates.

So what aspect of Buddhismis your interest?

Interesting that meditation has a powerful effect or indeed for some no apparant effect.

People are different (most of us have probably noticed)  :grouphug:

Maybe different people are incapable of really doing the same things, so that no usage of the word meditation is alike. One would then find themselves completely alone regarding their meditation, unable to communicate how to achieve the impossible, meditation of a fork as a knife. People agree we likely look different and think different and have different outsides and insides, so why would one expect water to flow through a body making the same shapes and sounds as through another? The expectation seems false.

It can be said, no two people have ever meditated and received the sure news that someone else had also achieved what they did really. "You saw that as me?" No "I saw it as me". Is there anything we do share? Finding what we may share might help us find agreement. One of the first things we can realize and come to terms with in unity is none of us can access anything of the other at all, so we're off to a good start, already agreeing that any agreement is just a friendly convention like a back massage or a kind word.
