Prayer, Worship and Meditation, while each has somewhat different practices, all share unique features of focus on something / someone from either a neutral mindset, as a passive observer, or from a loving mindset, with the object of focus the beloved. Some forms, like the Harvard Meditation, use repetition; others, like Autogenic Training and a variant of mindfulness, focus on parts of the body. The varying combinations of thought focus and heart warmth makes for singular reports of peace and happiness. Mediation reduces distracting thoughts, blood pressure, and anxiety, while improving brain health and even healing DNA!
