There was a time when 'meditation or no meditation?' was a serious issue for me. I come from a Protestant background where in my (admittedly biased) view prayer was a practice of reciting long-winded and important-sounding words. I struggled for years with the concept of prayer.

It was not possible to discuss any of this with a friend or relative, because I knew they would be shocked and quite judgmental about me exploring the occult and other "sinful" things. I was not in a relationship at the time.
Of course this was quite a lonely time for me, but also intellectually quite stimulating. I discovered a whole new range of
