I used to meditate regularly, and I used to refrain from certain foods, alcohol, masterbation, ect. and all of the things that are considered to feed into the illusion of "being selfish." I have asked for answers in meditation and not received them. If I have received them, they are not in a way I can understand.
All I hear about on here are these success stories about how well people have done. I hear of people channeling, connecting to higher self, having OBE;s, ect. I am happy for them and wish them continued success, but I am throwing my hands up in the air. I have obviously done something wrong to never receive this help of any sort.
I admit to being human. I have a compulsive personality which caused me to drink a lot at one time, watch pornography, eat bad food, ect, but I made efforts to CHANGE that. I refrained from all of it for several weeks and meditated regularly. I did not experience significant results other than craving these things. I have regressed back to old habits, then tried this again, and then once again regressed. If I felt there were ANY hope, ANY light at the end of the tunnel, ANY love being received by higher self, group souls, or higher entities I would have motivation to keep going. As it stood, I was just starving for good food, sexually repressing myself, and craving all of the things that, while temporary, at least made me feel better.
I GET that the ego is strong and provides a false illusion of self. I GET that you have to look inward. I have admitted my flaws in life time after time, and I am even doing so again. At least with the ego it gives me SOMETHING. Without it I go a couple of months with trying to change and cannot. Maybe I need to wait longer, but I honestly do not believe I can in a world full of unhealthy eating habits, sex, drugs, and alcohol. To go even a couple of months refraining from these things shows that unlike 95% of society (at least in America) I do see the problem and am willing to TRY to change. I need help with it I guess. All i hear is that the majority of people on Earth will be reborn into this sort of existence with their built up karma, but why, when I attempt to change and ask for love which i am supposedly able to receive, do I not get it? I feel like it is all for nothing and that it is destined that i return and repeat this same cycle over again. At least unlike most I attempt to meditate, look within, help others, and seek guidance.
I will summarize by saying I am by no means perfect, but I do good things and do not understand why I am not worthy of receiving information that others on here discuss they have received naturally for a long time (and again, I'm happy for THEM. i just wish i could understand more). I have made bad decisions in life at times but come a long way and faced a lot of issues head on. I'm a social worker at a behavioral facility for older adults at the age of 24 and I go out of my way to help these people all the time. I guess I feel like I'm some sort of bad person who extend his hand out for guidance only to be scoffed at and left with nowhere to turn.edit on 24-2-2012 by Subconsciously Correct because: (no reason given)

Its because they are like the people who "feel jesus" lol . Its all in the mind. Those people let the lollipop world of oneness and obe's eat at their minds , WIth all the meditating they do , they buy into the illusion.
Kinda like the budda and "enlightenment" he didn't really reach anything except the influx of chemicals in his bodies , to give him illlusion of any sort of "nirvana" .
Meditiation is great to calm your body down , make your head clear , and make you feel good . The mind thanks you for it .
But its nothing more then that . No matter how much you try . Buddists die trying to achieve these things , because they hear of others who have.
But nobody has . Its just good meditation and philosophy nothing more. The rest comes out of what you do with that , and how you let it effect your life.
The reason your frustrated is because your chasing something that doesn't exisit. Thats a sign your body is saying , thats all there is champ lol.
just stick to meditation and using that to stay calm positive etc , and the philosophy to help you get some euphoric feelings , and your good.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but the people who you see put posts up about there experinces , are just full of them selfs . trying to sell something they confused for reality .
good luck, then when you can't reach anything close to what they have . they say
"keep trying , your not doing it right"
"it takes long time"
"don't worry just keep at it , it'll come eventually "

Here are some easy steps to get the most out of your meditation!
If you eat pork wait a day or 2 after to meditate.
Don't take in large amounts of sugar. Stop caffeine intake if possible.
Keep electrolytes up!
Try to fast every few months. Do a whole month of nothing but eggs,fish,shrimp meats like that eat plenty of carbohydrates.
Always stay hydrated if drinking gatorade for electrolytes. drink some water aswell. Both are needed.
Only use milk for cereal. Meditate when you know you have time and feel mentally relaxed almost like you could think fro a couple of hrs about stuff. Just kinda drift away.
Everyone sees those moods time and again and they are the best to meditate.
Stop pop! Drink water and juice. Eat fruits and vegetables. Fast every now and again. Wait a day or 2 after pork to meditate.
You can meditate after eating pork but u'll never go anywhere.

You do realise that your physical body is nothing more then a fleshy sack of salty sugar water do you not? So then you must agree that for electrical currents to pass through you your chemical compounds must be balanced correctly to allow ether currents to be passed and translated through and to you.
Basically you have to make your body the philosophers stone. Which is basically just water reminescent to gold. Which is the most conductive. Any elite, secret society member in the government knows that before they can perform a ritual correctly they must fast. Why? Something in the meat blocks certain passges in the body.
It's all electricity!
