Meditation might provide "evidence" for yourself. But not for anybody else. It's a personal thing.
I agree. Other than the unlikely order of the cosmos, and some other interesting leaps in evolution/speciation - I think this is the only confirmation you can prove.
Hey, we agree on most of that too. Evolution, IMO, cannot explain everything that has happened
to human beings. Although, I don't know if it's a God or just some other higher intelligence.
Maybe gods with the small g?
But I've always considered that prayer, unlike meditation, would need to be directed to someone, don't you?
Yes, until I read "The Lost Mode of Prayer" by Greg Braden. That mode of prayer consists of getting
quiet and emoting what it would feel like if your request had already come to fruition. There's
no personal God involved or needed.
As an example, say you need a job really bad or you're going to be homeless. Sit down, get quiet
and try to feel like it would feel if you just got hired for a $100,000 a year job. Intention and
emotion are powerful things.
Like I said before, I don't think prayer works because some personal God is answering selected
prayers. I'm still waiting for a Christian to explain why a personal God would care about
bacteria or blood cells being prayed for. Those experiments have been done and positive
results have come from them. Is God listening to those prayers or healing requests?
IMO, it's all about the healers and channeling energy. And intention.
