Meditation is a practice in which an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness , either to realize some benefit [ 1 ] or as an end in itself. [ 2 ] The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices (much like the term sports ) that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy (chi, ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion, [ 3 ] love, patience, generosity and forgiveness. A particularly ambitious form of meditation aims at effortlessly sustained single-pointed concentration [ 4 ] single-pointed analysis, [ 5 ] meant to enable its practitioner to enjoy an indestructible sense of well-being while engaging in any life activity. Meditation often involves an internal effort to self-regulate the mind in some way. Meditation can help clear the mind and ease many health issues, such as high blood pressure, [ 6 ] depression, and anxiety to name a few (Yoga Journal).

I used an analogy of similar tactics in the past to efficiently maintain the obedience of household slaves. I have a friend who claims my language is far too strong.
