1. Meditation is essentially a form of brain training. One of the more common practices trains one to be aware of thoughts without becoming entangled with the thoughts. This is said to allow one to more fully examine, comprehend and act appropriately to a wide variety of situations while you are not meditating and more fully explore and even understand difficult concepts. Other common meditative techniques train you to promote physical self-healing and relieve anxiety and depression, among many other benefits. Do you ever meditate?

4. While the goal of meditative techniques as practiced by most is not usually to 'empty the mind', there is sometimes observed by those who meditate to be a space between thought and mantra. This has been termed by Deepak Chopra as "the gap" and it is where pure consciousness is said to reside. If you meditate, have you ever found the gap?
