Seeing the good side of psychological warfare

Seeing the good side of psychological warfare

I don’t mean to make light of something awful. Well, that’s not true – if I didn’t, I wouldn’t. But I am a fan of the notion that good things can emerge out of evil things.

Yin and yang, and all that.

There are parts of your toaster that were probably first designed for intercontinental ballistic missiles or something. There’s a metaphor in that – if you want to be sane and happy, repurpose bad things for good.

Kind like what I did with psychological warfare. I found an “enhanced interrogation technique” used all over the world to break people. Just thinking about it makes my skin crawl. I hope to never be on the receiving end of something this cruel.

Even so, I found the good in it.

You can repurpose this torture technique to take your meditation to the next level. The times I’ve used it led to incredible results. The trance experience was much more powerful, even though it was faster and easier.

I don’t use it often. Not because it’s dangerous – it’s perfectly safe – but it is a little gimmicky.

I prefer to rely on myself and the core principles of meditation.


If you’re struggling to start or want to enhance your sessions, maybe gimmicky is just what you need.

I describe the technique in full in Your Mind Inside. You can’t miss it – it’s the only chapter referencing psychological warfare in the chapter title.

(In possibly any book about meditation.)

Read that and you’ll realise how simple it can be to elevate your meditation experience.

The good news: it’s conveniently available through Amazon, right here. If only all evils were so conveniently at your fingertips, ready to do good in this world too. I guess you’ll have to settle for this enhanced meditation technique, plus dozens of others:
