Meditation, today called mindfulness, is promoted in all parts of our society. It’s seen as a panacea for stress and our generally busy society. It is promoted by health plans and by businesses to their employees. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to work.
As someone who was an advocate of meditation at one time, I can vouch for the results of this study. After meditating, you feel peaceful, but it doesn’t actually change your inward nature. I always wondered why, after meditating, I would still get just as irritated and angry at people as they always had.
This new study confirms it. Nevertheless, I believe this will be advocated for many years. I don’t believe most people actually look at scientific conclusions these days.
