You were doing a form of meditation, possibly without realizing it, but at the opposite end, so to speak.
Indeed, the consciousness that contains the system of ones body was simply focused one something other than the head. Its a good thing! Some
cultures would practice various forms of this meditation to lend their perspective greater balance between the numerous systems that make up just our
In spiritual meditation, all the consciousness/energy/awareness needs to be focused at the centre of the forehead behind the eyes. Once all
your consciousness rests there, then the ascent of your soul happens automatically.
Some might say that focusing on one energy pool, instead of "being," would lead one to possibly being misled. i see that the soul has already
"ascended" and that such things only need to be realized within ones perspective. In this context, there is no-thing more to achieve, only
realizing such things in our continuously mindful perspective. In my personal context, i feel such initial steps are critical to balancing our
overall system, as i see that the base of the perspective itself is where we bring duality, and many other issues in. i have expressed before that i
see that the duality of the material world is very "real," but not all things in existence are bound to it, including parts of our own individual
(but not separate) beings.
So, the goal derived from this, for one thing, was to realize all parts of my own physical system simultaneously and continuously. Instead of
operating the base of my perspective from a system contained within
the base of the perspective (the mind), i experientially "backed out."
The overall perspective does not seem to need to make distinctions between "this" or "that," and it can facilitate a larger collection of systems
than just the brain if chosen and practiced. For all intents and purposes, i see that our beings are in orbital structures in multiple iterations of
"universe." By actively "being" with the mind as one system amongst others, it closes the separation and duality that is created by the solely
physically based free will perspective. i feel that before this point, the overall system is not stable and balanced enough to properly "grow." It
seems that when one is basing their perspective on anything other than "being," or continuously being aware of all individual systems that make up
our own, it can cause great distractions. i believe i said it in another thread too, but in the buddhism i was taught, anything that distracted one
from this goal of being was considered a demon. i didnt quite understand the context at the time though, i had to discover the concept first, a.k.a.
"had to do it the hard way"
For me, it basically involved deconstructing the layers of complexity that i had put onto what "being" really
is with my mind. It was not a
concept to be understood by my mind and brain alone, and was not only something that other systems had an active part in, but something
had an active part in as well. In this context, it was also taught that the ego itself is not problematic, as it is simply a
natural result of certain contained systems. It is allowing ourselves to be contained and based within it solely that results in issues of being
misled by it.
Our discussion elsewhere stopped, so figured id throw some stuff your way here
Hope all is going well
