Enigma: Your reply to Jelly is really good, IMO. I hope others get around to seeing it here.
Thanks! I will remember this!
And by the way, I also had Prolo treatments. I agree with that idea. Smart of you to mention it. We need of course to find someone who knows how to do it well. Luckily there is one in my area. I hope the practice is catching on and spreading, since it is very helpful for strengthening ligaments.
I might also add that there are concentration style meditation methods that some people prefer. Google 'passage meditation' for a good example. But what you say is also very good, for those who take to the 'blank mind' style.
