    Default The Official Treehouse Articles Thread

    MB, if you know a place this fits into better, please move it. But after all this time, I'm not sure there is a thread devoted to random or general essays and articles. So here ya go.

    Btw, August has a fantastic thread devoted to some of his essays (I strongly recommend to new members who may not have seen it) but I didn't want to cram other essays into his thread.

    I hope folks aren't put off by the term "essays", maybe thinking, yuk that is boring. I think an essay or article on most any topic under the sun can be an awesome read if it is well written. Movies too- if it is well done and acted, the subject doesn't matter, it will be a highly watchable and enjoyable movie.

    This is on meditation, I guess I could have started a meditation thread but maybe this is better.

    I read the whole thing...that 10 days would be a very tough thing to do. The monkey chatter in the mind, the Waterfall, are hard to quiet.

    I did a 3 day "solo" once as a 16 year old on an Outward Bound type program...set up my own encampment, did the survival thing...caught fish, ate ferns, etc. Hardest thing was not having people around...no one to talk to is very foreign and challenging.

    Good read.

    The benefits of meditating are pretty well known and positive. But maybe some folks just can't do it.

    Nice link Cory! I didn't read it all but I dig the subject matter, I've never done anything that extreme but do try and meditate daily, untold benefits. Also have spent days alone in the woods, it can get intense

    Are you able to actually meditate each time you try?
