Thanks for the comment, James! I have actually started experimenting with meditation, but I’ve learned quickly that meditation takes a lot of effort and patience to master, and so I really do need to start setting aside more time for it if I’m going to make any real progress.

I also very much agree with your point about God and religion not being one and the same. In fact, if God does indeed exist, I would not be surprised if he/she/it turned out to be entirely different from any and all human conceptions of an all-powerful deity.

Outer space enthusiast. Japanese history junkie. I write about politics, culture, and mental illness. Disagreement is a precursor to progress.
