The fact that you actually think you can achieve freedom is laughable. You will never be free, no matter how hard you fight or how much you condone
piece. This world was not meant for freedom. But if you can achieve freedom of mind and heart. Then in your soul you will be free. Nothing will stop
you. You will find a way through fire and storm, hell or high water to do what you must. Materialism is only bad when it is used improperly like most
things. Materialistic items only hold as much value as is placed in them. They will not prevent you from being the person you want to be or to ever
achieve your dreams. Anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to play god and direct how the physics of our universe unfold.
Cosmic egg, I see that you have not followed your own advice. You still use and rely on a computer to try and get your point across to others. In a
sense a type of materialism. I do not know if you own the computer or not but you do place some importance on it.
Freeing yourself of your materialistic goods is just another way for someone else to own them. LOL
At this point in civilization I wouldn't dare drop everything I owned and give it to the church along with my life, which is similar to what you are
saying. Which was done quite often over the years, so that one may reach salvation through god. How can you actually tell someone these things? ITS
FYI: Your form of meditation kind of sucks. no offense.
Step one: lay down, perfectly flat, the head can be raised if you choose, but most of the time i choose not to. Any couch long enough, the floor or a
bed will work. (This can also be done in any number of positions but i have found lying down to be the most effective.
Step two: Clear all though out of your mind, close your eyes and begin to focus on a ball or string or even your own blood that is pumping through
your body, feel it go down your arms and back to your heart, then feel it go down your legs and back to your heart, then to your head, genitalia,
lower back, This is to awaken your chakra's. Keep repeating this step with a clear head until you can feel your body almost begin to vibrate. By this
time the body is very relaxed.
Step three: FOCUS, push all thought out of your head, focus on nothing (or try to picture god in its entirety, whichever you prefer) , then in the
darkness as your eyes are closed, shapes will begin to appear and disappear, light and dark, push yourself deeper into your mind with more
concentration, into the darkness, begin looking for symbols or people or other things of significance within your consciousness.
Step four: Your eyes still closed, you should be able to feel the vibrations constantly now, do not move during this entire exercise, dont open your
eyes, dont wiggle your toes/fingers, remain perfectly still. The shapes on your eyelids will become much more vivid. Flickering in and out of vision,
Push your mind as deep into the recesses' of it that you can find and keep feeling the blood pulse through your extremities.
If you wish to have repetitive words in your head for the duration of exercise, I would choose the words.
I AM NOT MY MIND, repeat this over and over again until meditation is achieved. Because your I is not your mind it is your consciousness it is your
soul it is your understanding not your knowledge
If at all you feel you are in danger/ something is wrong, sit up focus on what your goals is for the day's exercise and repeat, until success. This
wont work with any noise, unless it is white noise. I usually either interlace my fingers over my chest or put them at my side during this (because i
tend to not sit still for very long, this helps me a lot., but do not put them above your head.
At this point i have repeated this meditation process to the point where I can achieve it at any time no matter the focus or place or position of my
body, I can even walk around and do it.. It takes me away from wherever i am and places me in a point of complete serenity.
