Why brainwave meditate

Section: Meditation

First of all why should we meditate at all? Why do either classical meditation or brainwave meditation?

One very good reason for me was the ability to raise the threshold to stress (do you imagine the Dalai Lama angry or frustrated?).  What used to anger, upset or frustrate me, no longer affected me. I detached from these events. It was like I was watching a movie, starring ... me.

Jung personality types

Jung personality types... with a twist

Carl JungCarl Gustav Jung (1875 - 1961)

Jung's personality type theory divides the psyche into three parts. The first is the ego, which Jung identifies with the conscious mind. Closely related is the personal unconscious, which includes anything which is not presently conscious, but can be. The personal unconscious is like most people's understanding of the unconscious in that it includes both memories that are easily brought to mind and those that have been suppressed for some reason. But it does not include the instincts that Freud would have it include.

But then Jung adds the part of the psyche that makes his theory stand out from all others: the collective unconscious. You could call it your "psychic inheritance." It is the reservoir of our experiences as a species, a kind of knowledge we are all born with. And yet we can never be directly conscious of it. It influences all of our experiences and behaviours, most especially the emotional ones, but we only know about it indirectly, by looking at those influences.

How to brainwave meditate the easy way

Section: Meditation

OK, so if you got to read this, it seems that I convinced you to some extent that brainwave meditation is worth trying. So how to do it without turning your hectic schedule up side down?

Before telling you how to, it is important to tell you, I think, what brainwave technology I use. Because for me it is important, you know, to use the good stuff. The last thing I needed, was to put up the time and energy into an useless technology. There are many out there. You can even buy some software that allows you to create your own brainwave sounds. Very cheap. You can see why many people are selling brainwave sounds that you can buy on the cheap side.

If Jesus Were Preaching Today

Yoganandaby Paramhansa Yogananda, from East-West Magazine, Sept-Oct 1926

This article holds even more truth in nowadays America. So here you are ...

If Jesus were preaching today to an American audience, his message would not be, "Sell all ye have and give to the poor; Take no heed for the morrow, what ye shall eat, what ye shall put on." These and other beautiful sayings of Jesus could not be strictly applied in the West today.

These teachings were applicable to the East two thousand years ago, where climatic and social factors made it possible to live much more simply than is generally possible today. Then, a little labor would suffice to gain the necessities of life. Warm climate simplified the problem of clothing and housing.

 

Real Life Master Cleanser

Maybe like you, at some point in my life I had to look into alternative medicine remedies in order to get back to a healthy state.
I was tired first thing in the morning, I had stomach problems like bloating and frequent indigestion, joint pain. You know, the whole thing.

This is when I came across this quote from Mark Twain:

"A little starvation can really do more for the average sick man than can the best medicines and the best doctors. I do not mean a restricted diet; I mean total abstinence from food for one or two days. I speak from experience; starvation has been my cold and fever doctor for 15 years, and has accomplished a cure in all instances."
