    Interesting. I had read about "physical" meditation before, but was far too lazy to try it... which is a shame because that probably would have helped my weight-loss go a lot faster! I've also read about slightly fanatical religious types who whip themselves to achieve the same sort of effect, but I don't think I'll be trying that...

    I used to meditate every day, but then I started working an earlier shift and fell out of the habit. Still, most sources tend towards the opinion that there are times when you're more "spiritual" and others when you are more engaged with the everyday world. Neither is "wrong", but (as with most things) a balance is desirable.

    Meditation

    Yes, actually I find that it does help. I do it off and on. The main problem with me (and I'm not sure if it is related to the ADD or not) is that I can never seem to follow through with things. I was training my psychic abilities for a while - got real results which were both freaky and pleasing - but stopped for no appairent reason. I also started meditating every night for a while... stopped after a week.

    Now I just do everything spastically. I find it difficult to meditate however, can't turn my brain off. But someone gave my a good pointer which I like - don't turn your brain off but overwhelm it. Works for me, I enjoy overwhleming things - taste, smell, etc. When I burn insents I usally burn two or three in a small room. It will eventually kill my nose, but I love it.

    I'm trying to work out which is worse... a "crow seer" or a "cow seer". Crows come in "murders", and that's pretty sinister... whereas cows just tell you whether it's going to rain or not (depending on whether they're stood up or lying down)... either one is better than seeing dead people I suppose.

    On a more serious matter, I'm a great believer in the power of meditation, and was wondering if such techniques were of any use to people with ADD? I found "breath counting" very helpful when I was losing weight, but that isn't really the same sort of thing.

    I know this is rather tenuous, but one of my favourite albums EVER is "Duke Lion Fights the Terror" by Wes Borland (ex-guitarist with Limp Bizkit), who also has ADD. I'm not sure if there's a connection between his "condition" and the fact he was the only good thing to come out of Limp Bizkit, but you never know.

    This is the correct answer.

    I've recently been told that I probably have ADD (which is why I can never concentrate on a test, my writing/artwork long enough to get anything finished).
    I'm with you, Thanos. I'm an artist/graphic designer with severe ADHD and it does make projects difficult to finish. Fortunately, my growling stomach keeps me on track with the paying projects.

    I think I'd like to work on an avatar pack. That sounds like fun... if I can actually finish it. :lol:

    Berry, say I do make an avatar pack, do I just e-mail you with it?

The exact phrase was ADD/Perfectionist... which is a terrible combination.

    Hey, thanks for supplying the avatars! I really like this one.

    I'm not sure a contest will work. What would be better would be a campaign to find artists and invite them to submit an avatar pack of 10 to 30 avatars.

    So if you know an artist who can contribute 10 to 30 avatars of no more than 80 pixels by 80 pixels and weighted at 10k or less, go find them, tell them and show them. The avatars must be in jpg or gif format. Then we'll start installing those packs. They'll get credit in the Credits portion of the site. We can't buy them. I can't help them with technical issues. They have to email them to me at [email protected].

    Spread this thread.

    Hey, I just saw this thread change titles right before my eyes!

    Thank you, but I think Omaru deserves some credit for being nice enough to use one of my avatars.

    Some times the simplest ideas are... well, the quickest.

    Akk!

    I must amend my earlier statement. I hadn't checked the avatar lists. Great work DeeCrowSeer. I hadn't seen anyone else using it so I assumed it was Omaru's handywork. All statements stand... just put you name where it's needed Dee. ;)

    Hmmm...

    Perhaps we should have some sort of custom avatar contest? What think you Berry?
