Log in to Reply BIGRICH 8/20/2017 - 2:22 pmLike meditation,I think the main problem with us is that we worry too much,we overthink things waay too much to the point we get a headache. My mind is constantly thinking about things that don’t even affect me half the time, we just have to learn to let go. Log in to Reply John Doe 8/20/2017 - 6:08 pmIsn’t yoga mediation?

I don’t want to get any on my shoes. That’s gross. Log in to Reply wallower 8/21/2017 - 4:55 amAnd Zen/Dhyana/Chan realized all this stuff without the aid of science hundreds of years ago. Not that science is a bad thing. Their intensive meditating practices caused them to experience the reality that mind is everything without all the jargon. I experienced a small taste of “it” when I stayed a few months at a Zen monastery years ago. So much concerns/beliefs/dualities fell away that there was a moment of panic as to who I was without all these things. It was then that I realized that all this things were deeply woven into my “personality” and that that was a “construct” I’d built up for years and the panic resulted as it was falling away. It was the fear of what I would be without “them” or who would emerge. This is why it is said that Zen is not the adoption of beliefs as much as it is letting go of much that you should have never been carrying in the first place. Unfortunately after I left the temple I didn’t keep up with my practice and I suffered for that. Maybe I’ll start meditating again. It is like riding a bike if you’ve ever done it before. You just have to treat it like exercise and do it every day regardless how much you don’t feel like it. As a matter of fact they say that when you don’t feel like it is the most productive time to do it. The mind is like a computer in the sense that it can use a good defrag.
