|Why don't you try to stop practising the techniques for a while? Don't you think that would be an good experiment? You would be completely free from any type of control.|
Why should I? I get something out of them. This is only a recent development though. When I was a premie, meditating was more of a holy ritual, a summons to perform my divine duty, than it was to just relax for awhile. Of course, in that respect, when I felt it was a necessary ritual for spiritual growth, the meditation failed me. Now I see it's a good means to relax. Why would I give that up? I also meditate only when I want to, for as long as I want to. It works better that way. This fifteen minutes of this than fifteen minutes of that only makes meditation a burdensome bore.
No, Tia, I finally learned how to make k work for me, no thanks to Maharaji. I no longer see any reason to give it up. I had stopped practicing for awhile and felt better when I did. But now I've started up again on my
own terms, without a need to find God, or make the seed grow, or any of that stuff. It just helps me to relax. For as long as it does that, I'll keep practicing.
I am free from control.
There are other types of meditation techniques and ways to discover your soul.
I know, and I use to enjoy them more than k. Maybe that's because I never used them to 'discover my soul', just to relax. When I want to discover my soul I listen to Stevie Ray Vaughn play guitar.
