P.S. The ultimate meditation experience is known as "dropped body dropped mind" aka Big Mind or no mind, or even as non-efforting, non-seeking mind.
How we get there doesn't matter, so for those who are interested in employing these types of tools to gain access to the ultimate meditative state, I
would suggest getting to there, with the hour long Bach To The Future (BTTF), followed by the half hour long Compassion Meditation (CM), which really
get's a person to the point of loss of body awareness, where the desired experience resides after that has completed, in the silence - of dropped
body, dropped mind, or Big Mind. After that, the final goal might be to leave even Big Mind / no mind behind, and enter the sacred space of Big Heart,
which is just compassionate love in oneness with everything, but unlike Big Mind, there's the emotion of love present, which carries with it, all
those wonderful chemicals and energy, which can then be allowed to pour over the whole being, while also welling up from within to overflowing, and
that being as a Fountain of Universal Love - that would be the "Holy Grail". It is an eternal deathless state of Buddha mind, and the more you can
get into that, the more successful you will be when entering the "Bardo" of Tibetan lore at the time of your actual death at the end of your life,
and it's always good to begin with the end (and all new beginnings) in mind. It may even be that this is our true natural state of being, as
spiritual beings having a human experience, and would represent the next phase in our individual and collective spiritual evolution, wherein all
hatred and negative judgementalism, and unmet desire, becomes a thing of the past, and where work itself becomes not a means to survival, but a
creative "flow" process, as a type of focused meditation unto itself.
just something I thought I would share, from all my studies, but which I must admit, I have not yet come close to achieving, but it's always nice to
have an ideal of perfection to shoot for, or perhaps I should say, to open up to, since it's a non-efforting, non-seeking way of being and state of
mind aka "ordinary mind".
According to Buddha, his enlightenment was unexcelled or "nothing special", and therefore it's not extraordinary, but the entirely natural state
which is available to the human being at all times, or so use an analogy, it's like the clear blue sky which is still there beyond the cloud cover,
and what we seek to do, is to dissolve the clouds of delusion, and the delusion is the notion of separation, even of a separate self, when in truth
there is no self, since self is but a construct. There is only spirit, only the soul, which is eternal.
