    Hello,

    I’m looking for some thoughts on some personal practices to grow in spirituality. Specifically, I’m wondering if anyone would be willing to describe their practices of meditating, how you seek to eliminate suffering, and growing in mindfulness. Forgive me if there is overlap here. Any input is appreciated.

    Dear Jeremy:

    About meditation and mindfulness- there is a massive amount of online/ book information about that, including on the home page of this website (under BLOG at the top).

    Many books and whole religions have been created so to answer your question about how to eliminate suffering. Maybe I can give you an individual answer (suggestions, more likely) in regard to your individual suffering. Would you like to share about it?

    Hello Jeremy

     

    I would recommend saying one nice sentence to yourself, Start with saying it 3 times a day.

    Morning, Noon & night this will teach you to see your worth in how amazing you really are

    It could be a complement, accepting where your at, you choose

    but what you will find is it will be similar to planting a seed in the ground

    like a orange or a apple or even a sunflower, so if we water the seed. take care or it and be soft and patient the seed will grow

    now image doing this for 6 months how much the seed will grow but the best part is the harvest so we try this beautiful fruit

     

    we eat it and appreciate it   however even better, Think of how many more amazing seeds you have now

    for the example taking the sunflower you planted one seed and now come harvest you have 30 more seeds to sow

    think how simple yet powerful this is, anyways hope this finds you well

    So I don’t follow rigorous practices of spirituality but I have developed some stuff combining external knowledge and my own intuition on how I wanna do it.. The most important thing is to be constantly mindful about your thoughts, emotions and actions. Everyone has light and dark inside and this is absolutely normal but it takes practice to know how to tame the darkness. The best thing to consider is how useless negativity really is. Even when we think we’re right sometimes it’s still better not to give in to arrogance, resentment, aggression ecc. It just doesn’t do good for you on the long term, you probably know that. All we really want is peace and love. That’s it. So learning the art of observing yourself and taming the irrational beast inside with simple spiritual logic is crucial. Check the native american story of the two wolves, it describes in a very beautiful way my point. Other than that you can meditate. I like it, just sitting in the couch and chillaxing, if you enjoy it you’ll naturally ignore thoughts that arise. This is very useful for us to realise how our observing eternal self is separate from those random thought patterns. I also enjoy doing chi gong and holotropic breathwork but I don’t practice them often. (During holotropic breathwork you can do trauma healing and connect to other dimensions, I was touched once by the vibrating hand of something that wanted to comfort me from the other side). Watch the spiritual youtube, read books, subscribe to Gaia if you want. But chose to follow what you feel drawn to, that’s very important. That’s about it. Peace.
