    I used to practice meditation for about 8-10 years and found it incredibly helpful. However, I went through a traumatic experience with living in a new age cult. Since then I have trouble meditating because I'm afraid I'll be transported to the many dimensions or worlds or beings that I was introduced to while in the cult.

    I'd love to get back into it but it's so mixed up in my lack of direction and trust in my own beliefs since that experience. I'm working with trauma informed therapists, the work is slow but I'm getting there.

    Do any of you have experience in this tyeo of situation or how to meditate peacefully when I keep being afraid I'll get lost again in someone else's view of reality?

    I've been using duckduckgo recently and have been trying to protect my privacy more by using Firefox with adons. For those of you well versed in maintaining anonymity what other steps should I take to maintain privacy? I am aware of TOR but am unsure if I can use it on my phone.

    I woke up to this news, it made me so mad that he got away with funding dictators and breaking numerous laws. The US justice system feels like a joke. Im hoping at his next trial he's given the full amount.
