Asherah, wife of Yaweh, might be able to help. She'll be flattered you asked, because she's so used to being totally ignored.

El was a fool to let Asherah go, man. I got her number while exploring the astral plane awhile back. Been talking ever since, wish me divine luck, man.

Re: Meditation help

Find the right one, keep yourself, isn't it 😁
Even losing height and the back of your head from a young age needn't stop it
As for meditation, do you ever visit those in the tops of your heads?
It's wonderful to feel tall again after forgetting yourself

Easiest to imagine the Source as being in the sky, "up there, somewhere", but it's actually available in any direction. I imagine bringing it down through my crown Chakra, while breathing in through my nose; then, hold it in my abdomen, so that it suffuses my other Chakras; then, breath out through my mouth while imagining it flowing down my arms and out my hands, into my surroundings, suffusing them as well.
It's a result of having practiced Aikido breathing, although I've added my own interpretation, including some Hindu beliefs.
I use "the Source" in place of "God", because I don't personify it.

There is no need to imagine anything. Different traditions merely use different words to represent one and the same thing.

"The Source" = Emptiness = Brahman = God = Consciousness = Self = You (not to be confused with ego personality)

I was describing a meditation technique, easily practiced when one is pressed for time. I've found it to be quite effective. It taps into the limitless pool of potential existence.

Re: Meditation help

Anyone ever heard the phrase thumb city?
Any idea how thumbs can relate to meditation?
I'm sure I've heard it from some tropical Gemini, Vedic Taurus girl. Must be buried in my memory for some reason, right 😳

Doesn't the term God just relate to spiritually tall people that are adept at planning and communication? It could just be an old hat way of causing conformity.
Buddhism is usually much more reassuring, just don't try to convince Lao people that they need to change

Alan Watts had a book out called "You Are God". Quite startling at the time!

I know. I am merely pointing out that imagining "the Source" as something different from yourself is an unnecessary step since you are already limitless existence. In this way, you are feeding the ego with the false notion that you are a small limited body/ego and there is something greater "out there" different from yourself in which you can "tap in".

Re: Meditation help

It can be best, is think too quickly divine your own understanding of self and other and understand how energy aside from ideas is rarely transient in large quantities between the two.
If you get tired, fail to sleep right or end up feeling far more thirst than you ought to try a religion that isn't comprised of paedophiles for help and watch out for those secret societies

Re: Meditation help

I think it's inverting that you find the edges of your consciousness. If I personally think of the space around me as the emptiness and consider it as form, it takes my feeling to the edges of what seems to be around me
