Indigo, some good information on Meditation,
Which is encouraging people to explore this as well. Great.
I certainly hope people use your info to do this, and I am sure many will benefit greatly, and will certainly suit many seekers, though in
spirituality some are lets say Italian Dishes, some spicy, some barbe que as such, that is we all have different flavours of suitabilities for the
actual if any "God" or worship system we take.
And you certainly are packaging up Meditation from an Hindu Point of view?
Maybe some dont to follow a certain deity or host of them...
Just to add to as I have noticed this all over the web, and modern pop psychology to, why oh why in the modern world do people all want to be
"shamans" or "adepts"?
where these sort of people where traditionally they are a small percentage of the population.
The complicated almost full on student practises, or the initiate or part timer.
There certainly Is a place for Mantra, Mandela's etc, but mainly as part of an daily long, time consuming commitment. And then they are done to
support the main or basic practise, and expand on certain realisations and yoga's. I just feel it happens a lot, and many are loosing sight of the
main goal. I
If people want to be monk's or nun's or an adept fine, if so the web is not the place to get your practises it is face to face with a master or
Because that is the level of work and commitment needed to do Dream Yoga, or real Mandala's realisations, to have over an hour a day to chant "your
Mantra" with the supporting aspirational prayers, initial meditation to get ready, time and space, and number of mala's done to achieve the daily
Trust me I know, and it is hard to find the time in busy modern life.
If I just did that practise daily it is ok, beneficial but not the aim of meditation really. It is a path, a road clearer etc, the concentration and
mental progress from visualising etc, memory, concentration is very good, but as you point out in the Mandala there is an out there and in here focus
The above meditation is an "in here" type locally, tightly focused on object/subject. Very important and good but still a projection and an
imagination, a illusion ultimately. Self Created constructs.
Really I cant say this enough, and will lol
New and even old, advanced meditators, drop the visualisations (except as part of a daily commitment like deity creation absorbtion etc, drop the
"protection" rituals, its all projections, for old and new alike, it's simple and the best way, it is honouring truth, reality and all that really
Dont expect anything, or create anything like visualisations on purpose, when a thought happens, you think/remember the past or future or picture
comes up, watch it instead of being it, let it go,
All we truly have, all of us that is not false, or a Lie, or what is truthfull, real, right, natural and our universal right is 2 very simple
That's all there truly is, the rest is all BS, dreams, imaginations, ego trip's, religious mind control, expectations, desire, trickery.
Let the "nowness" become familiar,
Fell the "Love or rather Bliss" rise,
No matter your past, present, future, wounds, problems, excuses, laziness,
No matter all that anyone can simply sit, walk talk even, and tap into, become aware of , become that.
It is gods/the universes gift to us, it is much closer to any God and reality than any imagined "trip" or visualisation, dream or prayer.
If you can get so familiar with that Nowness so you are it, and relax, let go and allow the love. Then even the hardest hearts start rising at seeing
Then also to be able to let go Quickly when misfortune, pain etc befalls you or a loved on, then you will spend most of your life in the :
And then all you do you will be in the highest form of meditation, simple really you will be acting as "god" or any balanced universal archetype
soul would if they were you?
You wouldnt need to look for the face of God as mirrors are always around in the western world, and any how you have the neighbours strangers and
such like to see anyhow
It's right under our noses, its easy really we make it difficult and hard.
Be Here Now Awake/Aware
Relax, let go
Is all anyone needs to be a meditation master of unrivalled quality and destination.
