Turn it on and let it grow…. or fast-forward to Stimulator, where it really starts to turn your brain inside-out.

Just climbing out of the tank?

this provides a nice ramp-up from the utter void… eventually moving into Carbon-Based Lifeforms / Sounds from the Ground territory without ever getting that heavy on the beat.

Ode to Sensory Deprivation: Won Buddhism

There is no comparision with ANY sensory pleasure if you experience this samadhi concentration. It is greater than any sensory pleasure.”

— Ven. Chung Ohun Lee, Ph.D. at 16:38 in the YouTube video.

I’m studying at the Won Buddhism temple of San Francisco. I’m blessed for it to be right around the corner from my dwellings at 2379 18th Ave. My yoga center and my meditation center are right near each other!

And Ven Sung Ha Lee gave me the secret:

Keep the length of the inhale and the exhale the same length. Control the breath and you control the mind. First focus on the coccyx, then on the tailbone, then the area below the navel as you inhale and exhale the same length. Start with 2 seconds for the inhale/exhale. Then lengthen to 3 seconds and keep going. Soon you will get out to twenty. This is your gateway to samadhi.

“Sunlight of Oneness”by Phillip Wilkerson

More excellent atmospheric textures to enjoy from Phillip Wilkerson.

The solitary is the one…

The solitary is the one who has  learned by painful paths to live without props, the props supplied by other people, whether the props of self-affirmation, emotional support or the reassurance that one is going the right way. Even reliance upon the religious practices which at one time have provided such comfort must go. One leaves the broad green paths for those which are steep and rough. Only the emptiness, the no-thingness, is real.

— ‘Paths in Solitude’ by Eve Baker

Gentle waters closing over you, steady… deep… strong

 

Just fix your eyes on this one white flower, floating on the water


empty your mind of every other thought

follow the motion of the water, so smooth, not a ripple.

waters of forgetfulness

 

steady,

 

deep,

 

strong

 

   

strange isnt it? how the light is reflected, little specks of light that move and move.

It’s restful here… friendly

 

and you are very close to finding what you are looking for.
… when you’re rested.

gentle waters are closing over you,

steady,

 

deep,

 

strong

 

   

drawing you down, down, down

 

 

sleep

 

sleep

 

sleep
