    Meditation Thread

    Anyone else here tried meditating? I started a little over a week ago just relaxing and taking some controlled deep breaths. I first did it for about 20 mins in the morning and felt so different the rest of the day. Now I will meditate for an hour each day, 20 mins each time morning noon and night (if I have the time). I just recently stopped smoking hurb Click here to enlarge and with the help of meditation I have been able to kick the other bad habits I would normally do daily. (Cigarettes and AlcoholClick here to enlarge) I'm not saying going out with friends and enjoying your night is not any way to live. I simply was abusing it, just as I did Marijuana. Everyday I have been going to the gym or doing something active just like I use to when I was 16! Life is great and I encourage you guys to give it a shot if you haven't already or are feeling down/stuck. Click here to enlarge

    It really does feel amazing when you can connect. Best time to do it is 4am... but it isn't ideal. Click here to enlarge

    Really though here are a few steps:

    1) find a calm relaxing place to sit on the ground (or flat surface) with legs crossed

    2) close eyes begin listening to environment

    3) you'll notice you can concentrate and/or hear things alot more clear

    4) Focus on your breathing

    5) you'll notice that your head becomes alot more clear

    repeat a few times a week to ease stress.

    For sure man! I like to light a candle and focus on the flame, listen to calming music like waves crashing, and dim the lights. Def started with focusing on my breathing, inhale with your stomach through your noes then exhale through your mouth letting all the co2 out. You can put yourself in Alpha state of mind by thinking about colors explained here;

    I like listening to Yanni.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I tried it a couple weeks ago as I tend to be too wound in general. Surprisingly, it helped.

    That's the point - try not to think. If anything, just concentrate on breathing.

    My ex moved back to Corpus and contacted me after a year or so where I wouldn't answer her calls. She said she has changed and showed me many things such as mediation, "Quantum Consciousness", letting go of your ego and striving to reach "Enlightenment". She supposedly has no fear of dying because she knows this life is just a small portion of something truly greater, and there has been scientific evidence of this. Now she wants to be a Yoga Instructor in Austin and spiritual guide to help enlighten other people.

    Plus she still is very fun to $#@!. Click here to enlarge

    Yeah? I have to to leave bad habits as well. I'm 27 but i act like a 17 most of the time.
    and I'm mentally screwed. when i get free time, thoughts attack my mind like bullets and this all started when me and my girl decided to get married. Since that, I've been doing many things to keep myself busy just because if i get free time I can't stop thinking about various things about future.
    time to visit a psychiatrist I believe.

    Not to get too spiritual, but have any of you heard the phrase that, "Life here on earth is but a short passage through eternity?"

    Im sure its because, like me they have no idea what awaits for us on the other side.

    I have been concentrating on three things in my time away from the world; relaxation, focus, and happiness. I dont get as upset about the little things and I get the point across when I want to explain things much easier. I think it is working for me but everyone is different.

    If you guys know of any music that is completely relaxing, please post. Preferably instrumentals and/or little ambient voices.

    Not sure why, but recently I've been thinking about life a lot.

    This really nice and relaxing. It doesn't have a lot of those loud "ting ting ting" sounds if you know what I mean that sort of interrupt.
