      Question Do you find it easier to meditate outside, or inside?

      I'm wondering if it's easier to meditate outside. Let's assume there's no distractions in either option. Which option do you still find easier?

      Depends on whether I feel safe outside, if there are people around that might mess with me. I prefer meditating in nature if there is nobody around but I usually don't get that option. The easiest place for me to meditate is wherever there are the fewest distractions.

      edit: I usually meditate in the shower, fewest distractions for me there and the sound of running water is calming.

      I meditate inside but because there's no other option where I live. If I had a forest to meditate I'd prefer it a million times than where I do now, in the terrace under all the stars, as there's no noise here.
      I like destruction and reality, and one invariably leads to the other.

      Sunlight. Oh so good. I prefer outside. A slight wind and sunlight. Loads of sunlight.

      Outside is amazing if you can find somewhere without being disturbed.

      My LDing record, if you want to hear about it, is about 4 WILDs, 1 DEILD, and the rest DILDs.

      Since I have an issue with falling asleep if it's too comfortable I tend to be unable to properly meditate inside, which is especially bad for dealing with Tulpas. But meditating outside works just about fine, and I do have a certain place on a certain mountain which is not too far from me which is pretty good for meditating. I have quite an awesome view from up there, and that helps as well.

      Both. I just need to be alone enough, although if I had to choose, I would prefer to do it outdoors.

      I used to do that years ago when I was a child. We had big shower room in our boarding school, and during the right time there was abolutely no one anywhere so it was the perfect place to draw back and think.

      i like the outdoors because the fresh air and ambient sounds of nature is very soothing for meditative or reflective exercises.. but essentially you can meditate anywhere at anytime (even when walking or showering), using different meditation techniques.
