Cool article OP
This still feels "off" to me for lack of a better word. I think it would be beneficial for soldiers dealing with PSTD for instance, but you would
think "meditation" would not be something they would have soldiers partake in.
“But over time, I felt more relaxed. I slept better. Physically, I noticed that I wasn’t tense all the time. It helps you think more
clearly and decisively in stressful situations. There was a benefit.”
At some point the soldiers may have an "aha" moment and realize they are not the mind or all the things it has been programed with.. they would then
start to question a lot of actions.
I could see a soldier "meditating" on the battle field, only to have a moment of self realization..
