Hello all...
I have been practising meditation now for 3 years, and during said meditation I have had many visions. It had left me with a odd quandary at first which I now fully understand.
I made this simple animation for my Avatar it was too large but it contains the quandary within... Can you see what my quandary was?



In the very beginning I only studied the method of meditation not it's origins.

Just life and the world around you?
Church seems predominant so you probably had questions
about the sort of religion you were brought up in.
You are probably looking for an enlightened state of consciousness.
I usually just fall asleep, where I never meditate when I am fully awake.
That would when I would be doing active things where I need to be alert.
Sometime I have to put things I don't know into context by reminding
myself how many things I do know and have been shown to me which
would probably be quite startling to a lot of people.

I don't really know what the quandary was, but I see from the clip in your OP it is a kind of conflict of interests between the divine (spirit) and the mundane (material).

I want to ride my bicycle, but I also want to walk in heaven.

Are there bicycles in heaven?
Well, there's probably a lot of cyclists.

Goodness me, I do hope so, I mean if one can't touch anything for eternity, one would at least expect something for the eye.

Thankyou, well my quandry...... I was born and raised Church Of England for 41 years and yet 3 years ago I reached what some call the blissful state..... the above animation displays exactly how it looked.
The first time I achieved the blissful state a beautiful lady looking back over her shoulder at me. The next time I went passed the the lady and found myself in the sky looking at a person sat in mediative state (Buddha) surrounded by the most dazzling light.
So my faith christian... my epiphany and enlightment Buddhist

A conflict of faith at first until I realised labels are a human past-time but to my thread title......

HOW
41 years a christian..... I reached the blissfull state and Buddha was sat looking back at me smilling
