Awhile ago someone asked me why do I meditate? What does it do for me?

A really good question, because I really didn't have a solid answer.

I started it because others raved about it and I thought it could help me somehow accomplish some of the things I had on my mind.

Today while driving I realized, I meditate because it helps me become more aware of what is happening inside.

:idea:

(good to know "why" I do what I do)

I tried it, but never could hold it for long. Didn't provide results for me like for other people.

I do inner work, by going into what's happening inside, how I react to the world, etc. When I Find the truth, the things itself releases and disappears.

Works for me, I think different personalities different methods. I believe for some meditation will work to proccess emotional baggage (Peregrinus said it does for him), for me it didn't and it doesn't resonate with me. What I do to process emotional baggage does resonate with me

Both of you make valuable points..

What works for us (me, you) does not necessarily work for others. What works for others does not necessarily work for us.

Part of the take what is useful and discard what is not, is determining what is useful or what works for me. Not anyone else, me.

Why I do something and what benefits doing it gives me is part of that process.

I use meditation as a tool and as time out. I know that did not work for me at certain times in my life, because it did not. At other times it was effective. Even the same thing can vary in effectiveness/usefulness depending on the situation..

"Time out" is a good word. It's helped create more space.

And yeah I agree, it's more important to do what works instead of trying to force something.

Yeah, there's like more than a hundred of different methods... I kind of invented my own, it strongly resonated with me to do it my way, but I was also trying to listen to other guys giving me advice.
Thank god in the end I managed to pull it of, pretty much not knowing what I was doing, took a leap of faith and it worked, lol.

Rest / sleep / cave time / meditation = build up testosterone.

Edit;

There is no set time for a man to be in his cave.
Sometimes it’s an hour. Sometimes it’s a week.
