In conclusion.
10 members voted.

Maybe others decided not to vote?

Meditation takes work and dedication, it does enhance life .
It is for everyone, and results can be obtained with practice.

The quiet of the mind has many obtrusion's, with everyday life and many connects,.
its increasingly hard to do so. That's the way they want it. TPTB.

Overcome this and spent some time with it you will be rewarded.

Myself after much struggle 20+ years the mind is stilled at my will.

The thoughts come like a wave but they must wash over you without interference.
The goal is to maintain this awareness, which is the main problem of today's man.

Kind regards

Do you mean relaxing the mind and clearing all thoughts? I chose 15 minutes because I think it takes me that long to fall asleep.

Depending how I feel, it can take between a few minutes, to a time that feels like infinity. I selected 5-10 mins. It takes me less sometimes, but pretty rarely more.

It is however you choose to see or describe it, and by any method that works.

I would like to add some more points here.

How is your mind influencing you?

Think about it what is the mind doing at any one time?

What comes into your mind when you try to rest, if you are not a student of mediation.

The days thoughts, worries etc etc.

Turn the mind into a tool for yourself, it is untapped.

The ego manipulates the mind, reverse this and overcome the ego.

It takes some work, but it is achievable and this does lead to a better life.

I still my mind almost instantly. The problem I have is keeping from going to sleep.

Unless I set a mental task to accomplish, I go out for about an hour.
