No you don't.

You just need to still the chatter mind. Concentrate on the breath

Where there is teacher and pupil, there is seperation. Everything will come together only when you are still - meditation is about stillness and focus in the moment.

Everything can be a meditative practice, walking, cleaning, be-ing. Simply being in the moment is meditative.

Like i_am says, focus on the breath and / or the heartbeat - this allows you to still your mind and focus it on the now.

In what sense???

A very odd question on the surface, you must have your reasons for asking.

Have you tried meditating on the question?

well most people believe that meditation is harmless and healthy i cant see why it would be ethically immoral to meditate personally, but some could argue it opens a higher conscieousness or inner calmness that some people may use to then with bad intent. for instance a murderer or rapist meditating after a kill or rape to clense their minds or the elites meditating for bad purposes for the bad things they do.

what does the OP think about the ethics of meditation?

If you mean ethical as in terms of morals right and wrong, no.

If you mean in terms of religion, that depends on whether or not you belong to a religion and believe a religious leader's opinion. The answer is still no because the religious leader is wrong. But those indoctrination from child birth into a religious ideology are generally close-minded.

From a close-minded and brainwashed perspective, it might be bad or that might be a bad way to do it. But that's an incorrect opinion. Such brainwashed perceptions don't change overnight unfortunately.

Prayer and meditation are essentially two words for the same thing. Even the biblical 'Jesus' meditated (in the Eastern style).

There is no right or wrong way to meditate, but I've only experienced 'things' when meditating with a clear mind more along the Eastern style. Some Christian sects say that's bad and you should have the scripture in your head.

That's likely in case you hallucinate, your hallucination will be in the form of a religious experience which will further cement the brainwashing. Several folks hallucinate visions of people during meditation on a consistent enough basis. Religious folks, especially Abramists, interpret these as angels. There are even meditation 'guides' to summoning these angels. Guardian angels and arch angels like Michael and Gabriel. If you believe in that.

Because obviously something is going on in their minds, and that's how it manifests for Abrahamists.

As far as ethics are concerned, there isn't a problem with it. But many people get scared when the above happens. If it happens. Chances are, it won't. But you never know. I've hallucinated odd stuff and felt 'energy' like electricity. New agers call it vibrations. I don't know what it is. But if it's in your head (exploding head syndrome) it is very scary.
