Meditation is shifting mindstates on your own. Normally you need food or music or sex to do it. But when you die, those things aren't there.
Meditation is preparing for death. But death is just another state of mind, and you can experience it through proper meditation, after several years of diiligence.
Or you could just do what these happy people are suggesting and not gain anything as useful as a work ethic.
Dmt is cheating your way to the deeper parts of meditation, without the understanding gained from the earlier lessons your body teaches. It's not a way to enlightment or to happiness, it's the way to death, in all of it's ways. It gives you a brief understanding of death, but it isn't enough if you're dumb as a bag of rocks. It's learning the cheat codes of the universe, but you can't access them without pausing the game, or meditation.
Meditate daily for the rest of your life. You'll get peace of mind and increased mental prowess. You'll tone your body with breath and get better as a being. If you undergo drugs,abstain from sex and masturbation prior. It makes it less likely that the spirits will fuck you over. Get a pack of cigs too and smoke one prior to meditation. It helps keep away bad spirits. If you live in an apartment, you're crawling in bad spirits.
>>17319057 Currently I'm living in an apartment I moved away from my friends and family For a job, I'm working in north las vegas(sin city ) I live in the worst part and my wife and baby are going to visit family so I'm going to be by myself and I also have a ex that's coming the weekend and I don't want to cheat and let the worse part of myself take over. I was hoping meditation might help and Is there any special steps like how to sit when your doing it and where to keep your hands And I smoke weed often it makes a difference. >>17319057
You become pliable and mentally resilient, like rubber. You don't break and lose your mind when faced with hardship... you can absorb immense suffering even though its painful. This ability to maintain awareness is priceless because it keeps you from ending up in an even worse situation.
It is only until you master meditation that you become completely free from suffering. You become "empty" in the sense that nothing can impact you and cause suffering in any way. That is what is meant by "transcendence" rather than the common misinterpreted idea of being whisked away to some far-away paradise, gone from the Earth with all its apparent problems and conflicts.
>>17319521 At the very least it presents an alternate experience of reality which (at the time) appears equally as real as normal waking life.
However, to make use of such an experience would require one to then question just what reality actually is, and to begin the process of learning how to discriminate between what is real and unreal. Naturally, this line-of-thought would eventually lead to an increased interest in related subjects which pertain to that, such as meditation.

I dunno dude, this is pretty much what meditation did for me back when I was good at it We're probably following different methodologies but it's basically semantics, one dude's transcendence might not be another's
>>17319625 >tfw you meditate and find yourself to be floating off the ground >tfw you open your eyes and tilt, falling over >shocked back to normal brain functioning >tfw can't tell if it was real or perceptual
>>17318113 >Does it help to get a peace of mind? No, but it helps with maintaining peace of mind. >And does dmt help with it? Not at all. It actually degrades the quality of meditation by introducing strong emotions.
>>17318113 For me i find that meditation helps you to find a baste state of awareness/being. when you meditate enough you can bring that state of mind into any situation making it easier to cope with stress or anxiety and just generally improve your mood
It's like if your eyesight is bad and someone offers you a pair of glasses or a movie to watch. The movie isn't gonna help you see better. Just in the same, the dmt may give you a nice experience, but it won't help you see better.
>>17319491 Avoid weed with ex's. It's the plant of the love goddess. It's an old-norse charm to find a lover. Like a sexual one. Especially if a lady gives it to you.
Try and sit straight, but I mean, I usually lay down to do it.
Your hands should be in gy-an mudra or the mudra of the root chakra. The normal one you see in media. Singing bowls are pretty good for frequency, or chanting "OM" until you have no more thoughts. It's the sound of the big bang, and the universe.
>>17323748 Do you even native? He's in the USA, native american magic is powerful, Ideally you'd grow it yourself, but tobacco is a gatekeeper, it summons spiritual allies like it summons wasps to eat it's predators. It's also used by like 85% of schizos so it probably has something to it. Just don't overuse it, or your guides won't heed your summons anymore with it. It acts as a purgative in herbalism. It makes you poop/vomit out the bad(worms etc.) As above so below. Pic tangentially related to meditation.
Meditation is a chance for you to observe your mind and put it under a microscope.
however meditation. And concentration is only 1/3 of the Buddhism, according to the Noble Eightfold Path. There is ethics and effort that play into it.
Definitely it can bebused for inducing relaxed states. Often you want to be relaxed to meditate deeper as it will help you. When the mind is finally still, you can now easily observe every ripple of thought that passes and its effect on your body and mind.
