Why is it weird to meditate in public? It is. Think about it. You go to a park and see someone taking a nap under a tree or on a bench. No big deal. At that same park, you see a kid amped up on Mountain Dew and whatever else, with his mom screaming at him while his little sister lies on the grass crying because he just tested out his suplex on her. Not out of the ordinary. See someone meditating though, and you’re kinda like, wtf? It’s just kind of weird and out of place. Even for us who do meditate and are open to that kind of thing, it’s still kinda weird to see it in public in our western world. Why is that? I believe acceptance of it is growing, and although it’s not a big deal, I think it does say a lot about where we are. Complete unconsciousness is normal. Complete frantic chaos is normal. Relaxed introspection and practicing inner awareness is out of place in public. Just an observation.
