No I can assure you meditation is for the religious the non religious gays Straight easterner westerner male female young and the opposite of that [me] Everybody The benefits are enormous but I would recommend more than once a week In fact every day Even as short as ten minutes is beneficial

The only true spiritual meditation consists of thinking about God and his word in the Bible (Joshua 1:8, Psalms 1:2; 63:6). Otherwise you are talking about meditation for the soul.

You should learn to be open minded, and less worried about what is society accepted, and go with what makes you feel good.

your use of the word ‘gay’ here is actually quite refreshing in this inane, politically-correct world, so thank you for that…….and no, it’s not gay to be interested in meditation
