BLOGGING – A FORM OF MEDITATION

In my nine months of life in this blogworld, I have seen people giving numerous reasons and meanings to blogging. Just as it takes nine months for a human being to evolve in its full form in the mothers womb, it has also taken nearly nine months for blogging to reveal its full meaning in my life and now I find it nothing less than a form of meditation.

Blogging provides me the same effect of de-stressing and takes me to such high levels of single minded focus, deep thoughts and contemplation that only meditation can do. I think Swahilya from: swahilya.blogspot.com, the prolific reporter from "The Hindu" and one who breaths spiritualism and meditation, should be able explain this phenomenon much better than me.

Just as people taking to meditation, end up making meditation an integral part of their life, blogging too may be a part of rest of my life or eventually a life in itself. So friends, be prepared to tolerate me in this blogworld for a long time to come.

My special thanks to Ravi from: ravikumar.blogdrive.com for having kindled this thought process in my mind today.

  • btw, hari, if you use the "chain" symbol (in the tool bar of the blogger screen) while composing your post, you can provide direct links to the websites of the persons you mention instead of having to type them out, without the hyperlink facility.
    try it. it's an easier way to get ppl to check out those sites, cos they are just a click away!

    cheers!

  • Hi Lavanya,

    Do not worry. there are a lot of controversies in the pipeline.

    Just thought like having Lavanya coming to my blog in a pleasant mood and enjoying her time here.

  • Hi Hari,
    I do not know if I have mentioned this to you, but I also have felt the same way about blogging. Even if the thoughts in the mind are random, when I have to put it on the blog, I have to get down to the specifics, it becomes an effort in total concentration and then meditation.
    Namaste. Swaha.

    By Blogger Swahilya, at 2:36 AM  

  • Thanks, Hari. Yes, blogging requires concentration and meditation all right...else, typos are the result! ;)

  • It is destressing for sure..actually I never thought about it that way until this post. Now that you mention it...I realize its true!
