@Wrofustr "oh my god Sharon I'm so stressed out I need to meditate for an hour so I can free myself from all the problems, but I need a purple mat and not wear shoes because the magic won't happen."
Try using that hour for lifting weights and see the difference.
@jwayne Exactly. "Actually my anti anxiety neurotic habit is doing WONDERS for me!! I'll have you know I'm much too calm and peaceful to be upset by opinions held by others. Furthermore I'm far too ascended to be insecure about my gay corporate breathwork meme
@Wrofustr Even in terms of proper religion "mindfulness" is a watered down stupified version of meditation practice. On a related note, if your spiritual life benefits from mindfulness or meditation there is zero reason to argue about for it with others bc you will have known the experience authentically for yourself. If its beneficial for you then why care if others disagree with something as deeply personal like connecting with your own Subjectivity/consciousness.
