Why Meditation is Not for Everyone

You believe meditation gives peace of mind, right?

Sorry to disappoint you but that’s a half-truth.

And guess what, half-truths are dangerous. They can harm you, like really harm you.

(Now, you definitely want to strangle me to death, right? But I am okay with that.)

Before you try another session of “mindfulness” or “living in the present”, read this article, and then decide if you’d still take the risk.

How to Improve Spoken English

Spoken English

I was talking to him over the phone.
