Buddhist Atheist out there?

Is there a Buddhist atheist in here who is practicing meditation? Or just practicing meditation? Cause I'm kinda in it right now. So far naman nababawasan yung pagiging mainitin ko ng ulo, at nagiging aware ako sa mga sasabihin ko after 6 weeks of practice. So what about you guys, anyone of you practicing meditation?

    My friend is into Buddhist meditation; I am not. But, occasionally, I attend the yoga session during lunch break in the office. But it is purely to manage stress, hehehe, and not for any religious reason.

    Hindi ko alam kung matatawag akong buddhist atheist, hindi ko rin kasi talaga alam kung agnostic ako o atheist, pero irrelevant na lahat sakin... Nung una meditation lang ang interest ko pero katagalan nagustuhan kung magbasa/makining tungkol sa eastern philosophy.. naiintidihan ko sya pero hindi ko sya magrasp mabuti.. pero naramdaman ko na yung sinasabi nya..
    ha? Ano? Hindi ako sabog men, pero try mo rin. :rotflmao::rotflmao:

    Isa sa mga positive effect sakin ng meditation, nawala yung pagiging magagalitin ko, nawala rin yung masyado kung pagiging seryoso sa mga ideas ko at pagiging argumentative ko, napansin ko rin na mas relax ako at ang isip ko, at life is meaningless and full of contradiction... :lol:


    EDIT:

    Lagay ko lang to dito..

    Libre lang to,Vipassana 10 days retreat,

    there a lot of fake buddhist tsinoys who bob their heads with incense on hand but does not follow the teachings of their religion.

    ^ Exactly.

    You could say that this is idolatry by any other name, and buddhist icons are in no way immune to that. Zen seeks to be the antidote to that.

    Taking a nap during lunch break is much better.

    Reaching for the 'Alpha' (wave) state is possible even if you're a Satanist. *ʞıɥ*

    Of course it is, But sleeping at work is not a culturally acceptable behavior. Somehow, it is frowned upon. However, getting involved in company-organized yoga demonstrates one's team spirit. The room is darkened anyway and there is a part where we are supposed to do reflection; that is when I doze off, hehehe.

    Try mo rin magbasa ng Eastern Philosophy... wag ka magfocus sa buddhism, yan din ginawa ko nung una eh

    She lacks faith, that's why. Or, she was persecuted in the name of Jeeeezes. That's prophecied in the bible.

    But it's on a lunch break! Yung office namin sa pinas, lights off pag lunch time. Daming humihilik. And we wake up refreshed.

    May nagreretreat pala dito ng Vipasanna sa Dasmari?as, tingnan ko kung makaattend ako dun, Binabasa ko rin yung Power of Now tsaka yung mga teachings ni Osho, sa totoo lang simple lang ang tinuturo nila, pero napakahirap matutunan, especially yung watch, accept and don't judge your thoughts. Baka siguro may doubts pa ako, hehehe, thanks sa links.
