The importance of meditation

This is a good reminder of the importance of meditation.  To be clear, they are talking more about mindfulness, which is not my primary form. I use a regular form of prayer, adoration and breathing mixed periodically with physical movement like walking or boxing but the core effects are similar.

    The Vikings practiced meditation too. Often times they sat some place outside to do this or even very commonly on a burial mound. Was common to place one’s cloak over oneself to block off the senses so that the focus was turned more inward while doing this. Since most Vikings lived in communal longhalls I doubt meditating at home would have been so good since was probably too much activity going on there. But since we tend to live in dwellings nowadays with less people living in them, it is more useful to meditate indoors as there is less to disturb us there. Of course outside meditation can be used as well when one wishes to feel the energies of an area for spiritual world purposes.
