Dear Lisa,
A few mantras bring me to this realm ,I cannot describe exactly.
When I am there or in it, nothing else exists,nothing,just a blissfull
World,nothing else.

Not asleep,but so inside of inexistence of other wordly or spiritual things.

Hope you understand this.I don,t


Loong

Hi loong, that is beautiful:-) So many wonderful states we can experience. In tantric and yogic texts these are samadhis and there are hundreds. They are gifts, showing us truths. They are encouragement, letting us know we have moved past some block that would have kept us from seeing it before. But they are not the end state. Enjoy, be grateful, let go. Don't get attached or try to strive to find the same state over and over. There is always more.

To all or none,

Mind and Mindfulness.The last few days,I have suffered physically
like I do not remember when.Cold,flue,sinus etc.Used up 4 boxes ok kleenex.Because of my heart I can only take Tylenol,and specific type of syrop.
someone told me go see a doctor ,why i answered.instead I used my MIND and my MIndfullness.

My non-self and my brain we made adeal.Whatever pain -physical
my mind would not be affected.It was not,no mental suffering whatsoever,also my physical suffering however hard it was.
Felt like I was at the same time not living it.Mindfulness,made it so i would live this ordeal .one moment at the time.Never lost my half smile.

My physical signs are still there ,but i feel them going away.
slowly as I lived the hard ones.

To those who have not yet discovered their MINDS.search.

I am using this time of being sick in bed as mindfulness work. It is relaxing to not feel like I have to be "doing" something all the time. I am enjoying letting myself read and nap and stretch. A bathtub would be icing on the cake, but you can't always get everything. smile

Oh! I can make myself tea! Not quite a bath, but it will help my sinuses anyway.

To all or none,
From the book Tibetan book of living and dying.By S.Rinpoche.

Meditation is bringing the mind back home,and this is first achieved through the practice of Mindfulness.

The practice of Mindfulness,of bringing the scattered mind home,and so of bringing the different aspects ofour being into focus,is called"Peacefully Remaining" or
'Calm Abiding" This is the first practice on the Buddhist path of meditation,and it is
known as SHAMATHA in sanskrit SHYINE in Tibetan.

Calm Abiding accomplishes several things.First,all the fragmented aspects of ourselves,which have been at war,settle and dissolve and become friends.In that settling we begin to understand ourselves more,and sometimes even have glimpses
Of the radiance of our fundamental nature
Next the practice of mindfulness defuses our negativity,agression,pain,suffering,and frustration,which may have been gathering power over many lifetimes.Rather than suppressing emotions or indulging in them,here it is important to view them ,and your thoughts,and whatever arises with an acceptance and a generosity that are as open and spacious as possible.

To all or none,

What I like the most in Buddhism is MINDFULNESS,to me,it is when in an instant,my Mind(rigpa)is present.Everything is clear ,and true.No excitement,just peace,bliss.

May you develop this Mindfulness in your life.

Loong the learner
