exercising meditations

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

Hello all
this is a friendly thread
It contains friendly friends, namely, methods.

Method 1:

sit in a place with two moving waters.

Keep discerning the sound of one moving water from the other.

when was the last time anyone ever sat in close proximity to two moving bodies of water? one can sit by a creek, or by a river, or by a stream, or by an ocean, but how often does one find two or more of these together? and even if one did, one can't sit between the same rivers twice, anyway.

tell you what i'm gonna do; i'm gonna turn the bathroom faucet on and the kitchen faucet on and then i'm gonna sit in the hallway. will that work?

There was a little martial arts, Chinese sanctuary garden grove in a regular Xbox video game called Jade Empire, and the beginning town there is called Two Rivers.

And speaking of Focus (a key Bruce Lee facet), I talked largely in my own notebooks about "focusing the flow", focusing the flow of the 2 rivers of time to shape and mold infinite architectonics into display, like 2 zippers (which I later covered in a "Prophecy" section):

In this light the ability to focus the flow of the river of time may be a key to unlocking the secrets of the Holy Grail and the Tree of Life interconnecting every fruit, leaf, and branch to the trunk of the Perfect All.

A red ball of energy begins to form a blue cage waving with potential. The ball shoots lines out across All of the threads as they begin to break asunder and zip into a trench. Both Infinities fire out and explode Everywhere as the entire continuum soars through the green horizons of Time into Heaven.

Yes that was in the end what I figured for a solution for those who aren't in the luxurious situation Im in.

Nice power, ET

another meditation:

think about what you are trying to be free from (e.g. illusion, or debt, or pain, or guilt)


and then think about what you are trying to be free for/to.


See if these two freedoms have a way in common.

Ive got another one

divide the self experience through time up in three portions:

the truth
the active illusion
the passive illusion

Okay.
Joy....................................Grief.
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

I do not formally meditate but over time I am very slowly letting go of the chains that bind me
This is meditation in all but name and is ongoing until my final moment of existence in this life

To be as detached as possible - to be an observer rather than a participant - is for me the best way to let go
To realise my complete insignificance in the grand scheme of things while still giving meaning to my own life
Loosening some of the mental screws that hold me as I understand the need to let things pass whenever I can
A MIND IS LIKE A PARACHUTE : IT DOES NOT WORK UNLESS IT IS OPEN
