    Half an hour's meditation each day is essential, except when you are busy. Then a full hour is needed.

    Agreed. Meditation is referred to often in scripture.

    What kind of mediation is being spoken of in the op. Catholics are known for promoting the eastern mysticism type of mediation where one works to empty their mind. Very foolish.

    Christian meditation requires that it be on scripture.

    I wouldn't think Catholic meditations would be a factor in this community.

    Crabby quoted one in the op and he regularly quotes extremist liberals all the time.

    I have been meditating and have come to the conclusion you are unable to do so.

    BTW, Why do you think I kept the Ear Plugs (NSN 6516-01-572-8338) the Army issued us!

    Truth does not cease to exist even:

    1. if we do not like the speaker.
    2. even if we consider the speaker a heretic
    3. even if we ignore it
    5. even if you condemn it
    6. even if you hate the truth you heard
    7. even if you ridicule the bearer of truth
    8. even if it is not from your tradition

    Truth stands. You can try to kill it, you can bury it, you can ignore it, you can try to sway others from it, but in the long run it will be to no avail as truth will win out in the end.

    Meditate, listen for and to God. Stop the noise and listen. Let Him speak.

    Certainly so as pertains to all of those points. Especially the stillness. It is in keeping with Psalm 46:10.
    Be still and know that I am God...

    A whole lot of words here that say nothing.

    Yup. I'm guessing that's why you took such a beating in your gun show cartoon thread.
