Hi ChiForce - have you done many psychedelics? Just checking if your viewpoint comes from dogma or experience.
earlier in the thread I told the OP about the practices besides meditation that I have found helpful. So I meditate,
and do other daily practices too - repeated below. I think maybe you think Im advocating drugs over other forms of practice - that wasn't my
---from earlier post to OP
Even when not meditating you can continue to progress in your practice. During your everyday life, be mindful of what you are thinking about at all
times. Make an effort to eliminate the patterns of thinking that are negative like old stuff that happened that angered you or hurt you. Try to be in
the now at all times, not thinking about the past or the future. Think about it - whenever you are upset, it is because of something that happened
before or something you are worried about in the future, or some other thing you think you should be doing besides what you are doing right now. You
can eliminate almost all unhappiness by just focusing on what is happening right now around you.
One more thing - Biofeedback!!! You know that when you are upset this translates to a strained expression on your face, tensed muscles etc. Did you
know this works the other way too? Right now relax all the muscles in your face to a completely benign expression with maybe a slight smile. Loosen up
any tense shoulders and let everything hang comfortably. Feel calmer? Of course you do! Biofeedback has solid science behind it with medical research
and the whole lot. It has really helped me become a lot calmer in every day situations.
