Everyone talks about the benefits of meditation, especially the kind that are classified as “deconstructive” (meditations which cause you to think inwardly, or witness that you are small compared to the universe). One reason a mixed batch of meditation tool is useful, is because your mood may render some meditation techniques quite damaging, while other meditations that focus on decompressing or building you up can help change that mood.

For your assignment, read over the article below and discuss your thoughts on why it’s important to be aware of how meditation can be both constructive and destructive.  Your answer must be 250 words minimum.
