I love meditation but I can’t stand the way people talk about it

As the title says, I find meditation a really calming and peaceful part of my life. I’m pretty much a newbie but I’ve noticed that people use language that I really just can’t relate to (e.g. oneness, third eye, transcendental).

I think the way that people talk about meditation sounds “fluffy” and takes away from the practical, proven benefits. I also think some of the language used alienates a lot of people that would otherwise benefit from meditation.

I’m sorry, I’m not meaning to criticise anyone. I’m just wondering if anyone else has felt this way?
