That's a classic example of putting words into someones mouth. And addiction is a mental illness? Show me some proof of that, I'd like to know why you believe that.

Meditation means awareness. Whatever you do with awareness is meditation. "Watching your breath" is meditation; listening to the birds is meditation. As long as these activities are free from any other distraction to the mind, it is effective meditation. why do so many people think it has something to do with praying, when its just mental healing.

That is while it is possible that these outcomes could be the result of attempts at these goals... these outcomes would be the result of a complete failure to make any headway in either one...
