Well I can only highly recommend the Small UNiverse practice meditation c.d. from springforestqigong.com...
as the most efficacious tool for
increasing the energy levels to open thie pineal gland.
Real astral travel with the spacetime vortex kicks in -- Robert Bruce mentions this in his astral dynamics stuff -- I got to this and only after many
years of processing did I finally read "Taoist YOga: Alchemy and Immortality" stating it's because the spirit holographic energy needs to be first
stored in the lower tan tien -- below and behind the navel -- before it leaves the body -- or else it causes dizziness.
So my practice got ahead of my conceptual training. This is why in Mahayana Buddhism the monks spend three years of just book study before they even
do a meditation retreat. In Theraveda Buddhism the monks practice "cessation and contemplation" which is also called Vipassana - it is "mind
yoga" and it's the slowest method but also the safest. Maybe it will take many years of spirit reincarnation. I think most of us are doomed to
this path in modern times lacking a plethora of real energy masters to guide our practice. meditationexpert.com...
has great articles for free
with further details.
The whole seeing lights thing -- like you said -- you can see lights outside your body -- and this has been mentioned by others. This is the real
indication of opening the third eye -- but it needs to be "stabilized" and the full lotus indicates a level of stabilization.
So if someone is healthy then I can see a yellow aura around their heads - this is the coherent quantum biophoton energy as the aura. I can see it
around my six month old niece. haha.
Anyway the Emptiness as Nirvikalpa Samadhi is only after the body is filled with electromagnetic energy -- it's considered the most advanced level of
samadhi -- but as Ramana Maharshi states even advanced yogis don't stay in it because instead they get attached to the astral realms of heaven, etc.
So when Nirvikalpa samadhi Emptiness is achieved then the I-thought needs to be held onto and taken to a deeper level -- by emptying out any visions,
etc. So it's always the I that experiences but logically we can infer a formless awareness as the Emptiness as the source of the I-thought.
In actuality this is an infinite process that emties out the whole body and enables the creation of other physical bodies called the "yang spirit"
or bilocation - and this process is based on complementary oppostes as natural resonance -- something lacking in the West and even in Eastern
philosophy. It's found in the three gunas, the oldest philosophy of India and it's hinted at in Buddhism and it is the yin-yang-Emptiness of
Taoism. But what is really means and how it's practiced and put into practice is another matter.
The Tai-Chi standing exercises are this Law of Three complementary opposites resonance in action. The full lotus yoga position is another example.
The small universe aka microcosmic orbit is a third example.
Trance chanting is a fourth example -- it's just that Westerners don't properly understand how sound resonates and transforms into other types of
energy. Dr. Mae-Wan Ho calls it "quantum jazz" -- so she has translated this into Western science as best as possible and she says she is a Taoist
-- but the quantum time-frequency uncertainty principle is a rediscovery of this ancient natural resonance of complementary opposites. So most
scientists are still brainwashed by classical science with a reductionist and materialist definition of infinity, etc.
So actually we are already always eternally liberated but it is just impersonal and we are not individually aware of the liberation. We all have
infinite rainbow love heart energy as our true consciousness that harmonizes heaven and hell - our mind and our lower bodies - holographically
interwoven -- for eternal creation of energy and matter.
