On Meditating: i hate it. i get that it is great for lots of people, i am thrilled that it serves them so. And when they wanted me to participate in group meditation at the beginning of Not Forum, i rudely protested “dont waste my time.” I heard about how people feel more connected to a group if they all meditate together. I know other groups that like to say the pledge or sing a hymn before they start their conversation, and when these people with this truth model want to do that first, i wait til they are done before i come in to work with them.
People dont need to believe the same thing i do (tho as a propagandist i am generally trying to convince people of things i believe), but i do need my freedom of choice respected.
Sky thinks that this strong eversion on my part belies useful personal self reflection. Perhaps.
