got a really really stupid question. what is meditation?
Hi Phi, hang on, lmgtfy
To be vaguely serious though, I guess in my initial post I was thinking of it as the quietening of that internal narrator that you portrayed above, mine is less interested in food though.
I can't do this in seated meditation, he just gets more vocal and irritating. He shuts up when I've done an hour of hard Aikido training to the point where I'm near puking and then have to go through a few kata or taigi, but that seems a little too brutal to count. He shuts up quickest when we do Qigong in a group but he starts up with that "you're not quite doing it right" thing when doing the Yang short form. Maybe in 10 years he'll quit with that.
