Sit comfortably, I am sitting cross-legged, feet tucked. You can sit any way you want as long as you can erect your lower spine.
Place your palms facing up on your inner thighs, interlock your fingers with left pinky on the bottom, right index on top, put all your fingertips together to the corresponding fingertip.
Straighten your spine, take a breath in the mouth and out the mouth, feeling the mucosal tissue benefit, now breathe at a healthful pace however you will most benefit and…

I sat up last night and tried to focus, been watching a lot of Jiddu Krishnamurti lately, I asked what is the place before fear. Or it might have been pain. Kept asking that like a mantra, and all these different versions of pain showed up. Then I got to thinking of a relationship between that time before pain, maybe you could call it love, and how it becomes something else with the realization of it. That is, love becomes pleasure, becomes addiction, becomes fear. Then I thought, what is…Continue

After 24 days meditating under a tree, Gautama became enlightened.
His senses sharpened to the point of perceiving all of Samsara.
Maitreya and Kalkin's young pure spiritual essences sat in a spaceless space, awaiting his instruction.
Gautama made a localized image of himself with them, sitting with legs folded, hands atop the side of his knees. Eyes closed.
Maitreya: Master, your arrival enblissens us.

My business idea.
I would like to create a restaurant and entertainment hub where you can find: Asian soul food, Chef specialties, popular global foods, 12 mid-tier PCs, a few high-tier VR dedicated PCs, low-tier PCs for card gaming, browsing and school work, depending on the level of simplicity game creation has reached by its fruition; maybe an ultra-high end workstation, four console areas with couches for console gaming and movies, two ping pong tables,…Continue
Buddha visited me, in an invisible, silent, supernatural space ship.
Outside my window, it seemed time was slowed down.
He reminded me of the feeling of enjoying yourself.
He showed me some songs and movies and games.
He's seen all of history, and is actually a really hip and cool guy.
He sat in his space ship as I meditated, just hanging out, a friendly guardian, prompting peace.
He left in two days, but before he left, he performed a powerful…Continue

Yesterday I had a very intense meditation where I discovered forgotten "blocks" within my unconscious. It began with sitting and being present and then trying to find symmetry in the body, a gentle dance of finding muscles that don't get used and stimulating them. The scene in the Matrix where Neo's atrophied muscles are being punctured came to mind, along with the thought that just one stimulation of a forgotten muscle, with enough gusto, could instantly bring it back online. The first step…Continue
As a preface none of this really has solid scientific research to back it, just my interpretation of things I've read.
A few years ago it popped into my head that excess cortisol makes you do things you don't really want to do. So, if you can control cortisol, you can attain something close to free will. At the same time cortisol isn't some devil hormone, excess of any hormone can lead to bad things, so homeostasis is what you're after I think.
What can stop cortisol from…Continue
My heart is fire, my breath is air, my blood is water and my bones are earth
I used to be anxious, paranoid, I took away the worry, now I’m hypervigilant
Everything is everything
Languages, arts, blitherings, love and all its greatness and woe
Women spritely, men smirk, the in-between blessed with Divine Perception
The wind in the woods, the lucidity layered in all memory, pieced together in the Trophy Case of the Almighty, perusing, gallivanting,…Continue
