If one ever needed proof that meditating, mindfulness, great intentions and other similar platitudes, rather than actual actions, are completely pointless, if not counter-productive, then here is it. One million people meditating for peace and a few days later the animals from ISIS attack and kill over 100 people in Paris, followed by increased bombing and killings in Syria.
Cults and sinister cult leaders such as the fucking obnoxious and supreme establishment wankjob that is the Dalai Lama, and who promote meditation, rather than action to solve human problems, are simply just creating millions of hapless and docile human ostriches with their heads buried in the sand. It is gaslighting on an industrial level.
The gaslighting of using Transcendental Meditation and other methods of 'dealing' with issues is nothing of the sort. It is another form of denial. This denial suits the psychopathic leadership just dandy, as they know you'll never challenge them as you are too busy trying to achieve a state of Zen or getting in the door of an imaginary sky fairy casino with Jebus.
Keep meditating and keeping praying, another 5,000 years more of it and it might solve the world's problems!
Eh, "Namaste" or something like that.
