Longer school years aren't the answer. The problem is school itself. Compulsory teach-and-test simply doesn't work

Meditation is a state of being arrived at through understanding.  It requires intelligence, not techniques.

 

When you meditate, you create brain waves.  "These waves can be created from the outside by technical means. But those waves will not create meditation – this is the misunderstanding." 

 

While these brain waves are indicators that can be studied, there is "no shortcut to meditation, and no mechanical device can be of any help,"  according to the author of this blog.

 

Meditation needs no technique.  "It is not a question of sitting silently; it is not a question of chanting a mantra."  It is simply an understanding -- an awareness of the subtle workings of the mind. 

 

In knowing this, meditation can transform.  It can take you to to higher levels of consciousness and positively impact your lifestyle.  It can help you to respond to situations with compassion instead of reacting to them with anger.  It requires intelligence; not mechanical devices.
