A New Poll (on Meditation / Contemplative Prayer)

I've had a personal on-again and off-again relationship with meditation for the last five years or so. Everyone who meditates or prays contemplatively has their own personal reasons and results, and when I meditate regularly I know the benefits first hand (click here for 100 examples) . As of late (the past few months) my on-again off-again practice has been mostly off-again. Simply said, I have trouble sitting for 20 or 30 minutes. I have the desire to sit...I just can't. I'm wondering if there are others out there in the blogesphere with this same issue. Anyhow, if you feel like it click the poll to the left...if you think it's a load of crap that's cool too....see you on the Astral Plane.

I have noticed that I have a more difficult time concentrating and remaining undistracted. I think that the author of this article is on to something.

Is Google Making Us Stupid?

I don't know about "stupid" but I think that the nature of the internet is changing how our brains work, and in a way that affects us even when we are not on the computer.

So...your cartoon may include a double entendre.
