So okay, I have only been meditating regularly since the New Moon Eclipse in Taurus – a la our Transcendental Taurean Meditation Challenge. But, as i have Mercury in Aries, this puts me more or less on a par with Deepak Chopra.
What i have noticed: Meditation fits a minimalist temperament. I used to get annoyed at trying to still my mind and kept clutching at thoughts in case the stillness somehow meant mindless. But so many thoughts ARE JUST CLUTTER.
Also i think meditation promotes a desirable digital consciousness whereas many of us are still at least partially stuck in analogue consciousness by dint of our upbringing or being overly attuned to the more old-era dinosaur attitudes of our society.
Analogue consciousness makes your mind like a huge dusty old book shelf where guests can peruse all the spines of the books to see how well read, traveled or experienced you are. All your knowledge is there. Digital consciousness is more like the cloud – you are serene and trust that the information, response, memory or idea you need is there for the “downloading” when you want it to be.
What does everyone else think and how are you going with the Transcendental Taurean Meditation Challenge?
