I find this little pin- pointed in bhuddism despite the heap of dharma and in light that bhuddism does not focus on God at all and if worships Bhudda it is written the Bhudda never recommended it.
Also anything written on meditating/ getting in touch with one's astrale body strikes me as a load of irrelevant Lore -mis-leading almost as a religion for the astrale than any sensible atheist point of departure. Maybe its an unteachable path based on subjective intuitions adding up (as I have found) or Self easily confused with selfishness makes it too dangerous for the masses so yoga people dismiss it as " the Desire" body. Whatever ....thought I would through it out there as I'm disgusted with allnthe bull#@$** in print out there on the subject
This play of self and no self mind and no mind a CATALYST to keep fluid against baggage and fossilising ideas one would hope.....leastways I find the right brain ( home of intuitive mind) is more comfortable in no mind to house the whole spectrum from white to grey to black of hunches some whacky some too abstract like jazz or part useful or after sifted found sound. No God is more ressonant with flexability whilst Belief is notorious for otherwise. This is why I atheism a starting point for true meditation
You mean like a state of pranic trampolining?
I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to say. If you want to understand meditation, I think you would be best advised to find a good teacher. Having found that teacher, you may need to make a leap of faith - not in anything intangible but to trust the teacher and go where they take you. No gods required and you may find the reward worth having. I detect an element of impatience in your post, perhaps it would be better to focus more on what is enjoyable your life and less on what, for the time being, you cannot have.
I can't believe how much I sound like some tacky astrologer but as a lifelong atheist and sometime successful meditator, that is the best way I can put it.
Actually I skipped the teacher and beat up on a visiting Lama instead. All this fear and obsequious stuff. His secretary tried to spooky me but he looked me in the eye as if to say now we are going to have fun! ! Its the astral body to be both murderer and child ( for better words to use) then you learn see pranic people and and the spiritual but astral kept sound with music. And using right hand brain to see in the dark across stepping stones like fetishes into right hand mind. Wool or feathers and its graduations / spectrum to tune into what is sound taste and sensability in music
We shouldn't let the bullshit upset us, just let it go. I know how you feel, I let it get to me.
