Why meditate? – The Emotional Cleanse!

Meditation seems to be ever more en vogue (well, I might be prejudiced as I workin the industry, and mainly hang out on e.g. spiritual Facebook forums, but it seems to be featuring more in mainstream media too!). Meditation is said to have many beneficial effects, e.g. :

-  It can help to calm the mind, help us manage stress

-  heighten one’s senses and intuition,

- we can learn to view emotions and thoughts more detached (to not be drawn in as much anymore,  especially by negative thoughts and emotions),

- and ultimately it may supposedly help us reach  some state of enlightenment.

I’d like to talk about another potential benefit of meditation though – The Emotional Cleanse!

Suggested Arguments for De-radicalization and how to protect against Radicalization

I argue that we cannot just lock up extremists and throw away the key - if we do not understand what turned them extreme and manage to argue on their level, which in case of religious fanatics is understanding and talking about the nature of The Divine, a dialogue might become impossible. The main reason why e.g. I personally was afraid to seek professional help after leaving a cult was that I feared  I would be told that believing in The Divine and feeling energies is pathological in the first place....Understanding the psychology of radicalization and brain washing could also help us to prevent kids (and adults) being 'turned' awry in future....

A Heart for Narcissists

So I have just cone out of a relationship with a guy with apparent full blown narcissistic personality disorder.

Blinded?  - Maybe a bit of all? Mainly though this article is about trying to figure out what was real, what wasn’t, and if I should love or hate him now?
