Thanks for sharing your valuable information and views on meditation and its positive influence on the human brain. Meditation not only enhances the brain but it also helps to attain peace and happiness in our mind.

I think Mark Twain had it best with what faith is: “Faith is believing something you know ain’t true.” and not “faith is equivalent with hope, optimism and the belief that a positive future awaits us. Faith can also be defined as the ability to trust our beliefs, even when we have no proof that such beliefs are accurate or true.””

Why use a word, “faith” that already has a meaning to suddenly become the meaning of other perfectly good words like “hope”, “optimism”, “positive thinking” and “trust”? We can have lots of evidence for those things, just like we have evidence that meditation and not “God” has influence on the brain.

Planetary consciousness? Give me a break. Maybe a quick science course in physics would help you guys out. The mind has nothing to do with any of this. It’s just a wannabe wishful thinking process. Crazy? You bet.

Does prayer performs miracle/healing or non meditated brain causes the reverse – damage / failure? Apply that to our planet, are we destroying the planet because humans are much less meditative/less godly, as compared to 50 years ago?
Apply that to Africa with no core religion/ meditative culture and that of past great civilistion , high in spiritual values ? Africa has no known advancment in civilisation throughout history as compared to many better parts of the world. Make sense?
I think so.

It ought to be clear, however, that neither any god nor the subject matter of meditation influence the brain in the way these two gentlemen rather naïvely believe. If they extended their research, they would have to conclude that any intense concentration will show very similar results to their current findings. Errare humanum est…

Mindfulness is the meditation technique that I find most practical, it brings the person 100% into the present moment. There are however many forms of meditation that work for different persons depending upon their personality, upbringing, social and environmental factors.
