it's a what if to be explored
right now, we here, and we gotta work
that takes energy
how can we become faster and more effective, and, how much freedom will we have with this power - how much of it will be demanded of us -
my response would be, is it more "work" to do the physical or the mental/spiritual?
is the cog in the wheel where the real work is done or is the machine doing the work?
or at the bird's eye view, is it all the same work?
is exercising someone else's wlll any better/worse than exercising one's own?
i mean, on one level exercise is exercise.
comparing it to business, when running your own company you have to be the janitor all the way to ceo. definitely more energy is needed to run that senario. the returns also match that input(optimally speaking).
but is that system preferable to getting a 9-5?
The whole point of meditation is to halt all thoughts, and channel forces around you which will inturn become knowledge.
^^Wrong sid. That is just one form of meditation.
Meditation by definition is the supression of all thoughts.
thought is information.
in meditation, you quiet the "monkey mind" and the higher self has an opportunity to speak. this information is organized in the higher dimension and then presented to the monkey mind.
meditation would serve no purpose if you just went completely blank.
thru the absence of thought comes new ideas.
at least thats my understanding.
1 - continuous and profound contemplation or musing on a subject or series of subjects of a deep or abstruse nature; "the habit of meditation is the basis for all real knowledge".
2 - - (religion) contemplation of spiritual matters (usually on religious or philosophical subjects)
To me meditiation is focussing on as many perspectives on a subject to obtain insight from it.
Through the supression of sponatenous thought, the mind becomes more aware of it's surroundings, it opens the floodgates and channels the CC.
You would get alot of imput from many channels that way.
How do you tune in to a specific channel you wanna get info from?
I mean, the missing element here is focus.
for the past few years i've been having these crazy vibrations between my ears... especially when i yawn, stretch, or squint my eyes... looked on the internet and found out that shit is due to tremendous stress... i don't know what prompted me 2 do this but i got some shrooms and tried to meditate that shit out of me... took about 2 grams and sat in a corner for like 5 hours just thinking about the vibrations and willing it out of my system... and sure enough, that shit disappeared and hasn't been back since... meditation is some real shit
you can also try self hypnosis.
which is just a relaxed state of high suggestibility.
i learned a few techniques on my retreat.
one is pain management.
i learned how to relax myself from head to toe then create a symbolic scenario in order to get a literal effect.
the scenario most effective for me was to imagine a bucket of ice water.physically stick my hand in the imaginary ice water till it went numb.(it really goes numb) then transfer the numbness by physically touching the body part that was hurting.
the first time i tried this in a session, i jumped up out of hypnosis cause it freaked me the fuck out. i mean my shit was really numb.
its similar to imagining a hot summer day or a roaring fire when you are out in the cold. mind over matter.
in your case traz, you could have possibly imagined the buzzing was a bee inside your skull, and the bee was looking for a way out. maybe by imagining you opening a tiny door in your forehead the bee could fly away.
idk i'm not licensed hypnotherapist but thats kinda how this shit works.
but its based on the same principles of meditation and quieting the conscious mind and accessing the subconscious.
Pain management or rather pain conversion is something i'm learned of.
I learned how to turn pain into pleasure, not in a sado masicosistic kind of way lol.
"but its based on the same principles of meditation and quieting the conscious mind and accessing the subconscious. "
That is exactly why the suppression of thought is a fundamental of meditation, try to not think of ANYTHING for 1 minuite, it's very hard isn't it.
It allows your subconcious to take it everything around it, and we all know that the subconcsious plays the bigger role in the thought process.
