Oh damn, I don't know when I had such a good meditation session last time. Thanks for sharing! This guy is a really amazing teacher!


I raised my eyebrows when he stated the most well-known types of meditation are not actual meditations but when he went on explaining they are not wrong, just simple different (focus) exercises, it became clear and I was like, "ah, ok, now I see it" lol.


So I'm really happy that you shared this video. And I just realized that my recent inability to actually meditate was a fear of this exact nothingness that its purpose. I don't know, I think it stems from my recurring issues with grounding but I used to handle it much better back than (and I handle different things better now, so it's sort of exchanged thing for me). But now it felt amazing and simple, so will continue it daily. And this guy gained a new subscriber.

Edit: Just see it was shared a month ago. In a strange way, it appeared among the recently active topics. Nevermind.

Think I told you before but your drawings have spirit and moods! This one with the eagle strikes me especially! Good job, man.

This "study" seems rather biased for me, and what, only done with ONE person? Then it's merely anecdotal.

I'm not an expert at diets and nutrition (besides keto but that's a different topic) so I'm just gonna copypaste a comment from the comment section because he has really a good point:

"a few questions spring to mind. why is it automatically assumed that because eating fats temporarily lowers arterial elasticity a few hours later, that it constitutes 'arterial damage', and is therefore a bad thing? could it not just be part of the biological process, like blood sugar temporarily increasing after eating or lactic acid temporarily building up after muscle stress? why would we assume that our endothelial and vascular systems would be in a perfect, ideal state of functional bliss at all times, regardless of other changes to the system (ie, eating in general)? also, is the temporary loss of elasticity 'bad enough' to offset the nutritional benefits of nuts?"

Accepting the negative is a vital part but it doesn't mean to dwell on it or to hold on to a negative mindset. Just as being positive is not the same as living in a rainbow bubble. Do everything with the right mindset! Accept the negative but accept also that you have the power to change either the situation or your attitude towards it. Either, or, the change will happen eventually. That's positivity.

(Not arguing with you or with the quote, just found important to note it as most of us make this fallacy at least once on the path )

Wow it looks really scary but in a good way! I really like how you can portray feelings with your drawings Yea though I wouldn't say ferocity myself but firmness is indeed needed in some problematic cases. Hope all is okay now

Holy crap, that's really a LOT of things, man. Really curious about your work! You can either share them with me in PM or there is a subforum here for creative activity and arts, called 'Yoda's Den' where you can share with all of us if you'd like so!

Cool, meditate on your thoughts and post them when you feel so. Take your time, proceed in a tempo that feels right

Thanks for your answers! :D

We all have demons that we can either try to ignore or understand how they influence us and every aspect of our life. They are teachers also. We can't be free of them until the lesson has been learned.


That's what I exactly meant too, and this is what I said is not necessarily a Dark Side thing, moreover, shunning this part of life instead of understanding it is unwise and exactly what leads us to the Dark Side (in the unhealthy meaning).

Quote:
instead of fighting yourself or hiding from yourself, you use them in the highest ways possible.


Jedi don't fight or hide from themselves either (in a good case) but yea now I understand the difference. Understanding/accepting something and embracing them is not the same thing. The latter is a matter of focus. It matters where you focus is at.

I really try to do my best to understand but I think misinterpretation happened at a vocabulary level in my case and we do actually agree. No matter the C1 English degree, am still just a Hungarian lol


(edit: misunderstandings, then re-read the comment)

Thank you guys! And Sinistra to answer your questions:
1: To find the healthy balance between extremes, I personally have payed attention to when my extremes can start reaching too high , I then start breathing exercises until it balances my mind out and clears my head enough to make just and sound decisions.

2: I view passion as a double edged sword, being a musician I have learned that there is healthy passion ( drive and motivation to continue or start a journey or task) and unhealthy passion which I have noticed is almost blinding to some people, who invest so much passion that they forget to concentrate on the present moment to achieve the goal they are passionate about. So I do believe passion can be both a positive or negative feeling or emotion depending on how well you can keep yourself in check!


Hi Veran! Sorry for the late reply, was working a ton and didn't have any time for anything besides sleeping lol. I like your answers very much, especially the clarification on passion.

Off: So you are a musician, it's cool, what do you play? (I am a wannabe musician myself, too, learning to sing and play the guitars and drums at the moment!)

Amazing job on the Creed and Tenets, too! I like how you can express your interpretations in a wise yet clear, simplistic way and there is a lot of positivity in your words. Keep up the good work!
