I am seeking a way to quiet the mind because I have racing thoughts. This subject is dominated by the Buddhist meditation techniques. The book I checked out makes no attempt to change your religion but, it is a very different philosophy. I have been warned by other christians to stay away from it. Does anybody have any other suggestions at how to quiet the mind?
No, maybe you’ll find out that Buddhism is a far better philosophy than what Christianity puts forth, so go for it. Learn about the other positions, then come back and choose which is better for you.
Of course other Christians warn you not to, any opposing opinions are looked down upon and censored to keep the faith strong.
