if i could get any information on medition within the chriatian belief and the influences then that would be great thanks?
I can’t speak for other non-Catholic Christians but as far as I understand meditation is ok [b:3pefo132]if[/b:3pefo132] the self (your conscious) is still fully there. Anytime you begin to lose the self you begin to walk on thin ice. This is one of the reasons why alcohol is seen as a sin. Your conscious or free will is one of the greatest gifts given to us by God almighty. Meditation in the Catholic Church is to be fully aware of oneself and align themselves fully to God in the mind. It’s [b:3pefo132]you[/b:3pefo132] fully allowing and corresponding to God’s grace.
Hope this helps.

I think that is kind of what the mystics do. They enter this deep meditation where they have some sort of ultra experience of God.
You ever talked to one Jon?
No, just learned about them in school.
Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalms 46:10
