Sōkoban

For my friend who is in between

sitting on the scaffolding
looking down the void
raising eyes to drapes
that frame the stage

seeing all the losses
and all that’s still to come

Sōkoban and other riddles
pave the way to the light
that casts pretty shadows

oh have thou faith
in the here and now
all that thou needest
lies within

w.j.u.h.

      1. And which meditative method did you use to achieve this expression of clarity?

      2. I use now Eckhard Tolles method, but rather quote his revelations than my own experience. So far I still try to get “insyde” to see for myself.

      4. More or less to sit, concentrate on breathing imagine being surrounded by a glowing matter, which you breath in, get filled with it and start glowing yourself. By this connecting to the inner body which turns out to be limitless. So far my experience stops at deep breathing and a feeling of something hard to explain in front of my closed eyes which I can’t hold on to and which doesn’t disconnect me from my physical experiences. I guess I need to keep on trying…

      7. I mean do you learn best through visual guidance (like diagrams or photographs)? listening (podcasts, or spoken instruction)? practice (physically doing it, hands on)? or figuring stuff out for yourself?

      8. I think listening to spoken instructions seem to work best for me. Generally I am a hands on kind of a guy and like to figure out my own solutions but when it comes to meditation I prefere to listen to voice and sound.

      9. try listening to guided meditations paired with binaural beats (or that other music thing you mentioned before).
        Since I’m one who needs words, I tend to just listen to normal, entertaining music (stuff I just like, not anything “meditative” or whatever) and enjoy the experience. feel the music, the words, the movement (dance or move to it).

      10. Ok I might go back to isha krija than. This is a combination of thinking mantras “I am not my bodie” while I breath in and “I am not even my mind” while breathing out, followed by flute music and than a lilting song performed in an to me unknown language presumably urdu sung by a monk.

      11. Thats interesting. That would not resonate with me lol! Too much concentration for my preference

      12. Ok, that’s a point. I might also try listening to gregorian chants tuned down to solferiggio frequencies and try to blank out thoughts.
