Steve Vai On Meditative Listening

2 posts in this topic

After meditating for a while, one notices how the mind works. It's occurred to me recently just how brutal the ego can be to myself and others when I really observe my thoughts. When we put aside judgement towards reality, this allows for a space to see reality in a greater context. To tie all this into all the conflict we see today with politics for example, perhaps this state of deep listening could help us become more compassionate to other points of view. How do we bring the meditative state from the 20 mins or so of daily meditation, to when we are with friends, family, and people we disagree with?

@Focus Shift The sad truth is that most people are simply incapable of enlightenment work. We need an innovation in neurology to bring the experience of meditation to regular folk. Andrew Newberg is a researcher in this field, but there aren’t many others I’m afraid.
