What's your longest meditation session? * 1
    #916613 - 09/29/02 12:09 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

What's the longest you've ever meditated for in one sitting?

I think mine would have to be somewhere around an hour, maybe a little more when i'm not tripping.

On mushrooms, i've meditated for HOURS. I can't even remember how long it was.

I think my record is about a 1/2 hour. I've been meaning to try for longer, but I don't make time for it. I have yet to try meditating on mushrooms. Sometimes I am in the prefect mood to meditate, and it would have to be during one of these times that I could go for a longer time.

Long enough for dust to settle and moths to eat my clothes.

Maybe 90 mins. (I live in a dirty apartment)

About 3-4 hours on mushrooms...

Probably around 1 1/2 hours sober.

ive been meditating for four years now.
meditating......actually trynig ive spent prolly 4-5 hours a few times, started as  normal sittings, they were virge of the moment type things.
when you concentrate hard, you meditate in a way.
so if youve ever played a sport, took a test, or have done something that keeps your undivided attention, then, well i guess you may have meditated longer....
:wink:btw, how many mushrooms do yall eat when you try to meditate with them....ive never done that, but it sees that it would be much harder trying to quiet my mind while tripping...

Mr. Mushroom, are you SERIOUS? If you are, then 8 hours is amazing.

Clever name: I used to meditate on about 4 or 5 grams of mushrooms. I'm not sure if I really quiet  my  mind when I meditate.  What I do is sit there, and wait for "habit energy" that trys to get me to stop meditating because i'm "bored". Once I take the full force of that energy, I realize that it had no real power over me, and I move on.

I realized that the energy that trys to get me to stop meditating comes to my brain from different angles. It keeps trying to get me to stop over and over. I try to take a far enough step back so that that energy doesn't sneak up on me, and make me stop before I conciously want to. Many times i've been caught off guard by this energy, and find that i've stopped meditating without even realizing it. I feels so good when I fight back those forces over and over and over again from different angles.

Meditation can be very strenuous at times. I love that part of it though.

What kind of meditation?

If you're talking about the sit still for a long time.... maybe an hour.

If you're talking about the "running around town meditation" technique... I've been able to do it for like 18 hours.

12 hours in one sitting, as well as off an on for 4 days one time with small interludes. But then again how do you define meditation? Surely you dont sit there trying not to think any thoughts, or visualizing without a goal in mind. If you were to sit there for long enough not thinking you would realize that you are always meditating between thoughts, you have now simply become aware of what you have been creating. once you are aware than you simply be in your meditation whenever you choose.

You move away from the illusions by seeing them as illusions and then your mind becomes totally quiet, you cannot do your way into a state of being. This is the state of "Rigpa" spoken of in the Buddist Dharma.

Forcing the mind to be quiet can only be useful if you know what you are trying to accomplish, liberation from the illusions. Once you are liberated your mind "is" just quiet. "Isness" is the natural state of everything, "Rigpa".

I hope this becomes clear to you.......

peace>

How does one attain a peaceful mind? you cant meditate all the time, or can you?

To do or to be, that is the question.

You have asked Matts and now i will answer. Begin by taking a few deep breaths. Notice your surroundings, do not try to interpret them, just notice.

Next begin to relax within yourself as you are gently noticing your surroundings.

Deeper and deeper you relax.

You may begin to notice that everything becomes well despite your surroundings.

As you begin to merge with your surroundings just go with whatever is happening or any thoughts that you have, do not try to force your mind to quiet nor any physical discomforts to lessen, they are illusions to help you experince reality.

flow with everything, turn on some music, whatever kind you like. Notice how everything begins to enhance your calm state, not retract from it.

stay relaxed within yourself and your session will go smoothly.

You will begin to notice how your mindset cycles from thought to no thought. the longer you meditate the greater the expanse becomes between cycles, until you have reached bliss. From the bliss or a state of being many unordinary things will be expereinced, just keep relaxing and coming from that place from within and you will sink deeper and deeper, from here you are not that far from a revelation, still clamly let the revelation pass and keep coming from within.

On the other side of ordinary mind lies enlightenment, and when reache dit will seem like there never was any barrier at all, it was your belief in the illusions as realities that were giving you your experience of being at the effect of life, not the cause of it.

tip: once you start to experience objects breathing flow with them, dont meditate on the breathing, come from that peaceful, still place within, always.

Remember nothing you see is real, it is a contextual field to experience who you really are. Pure, uninterrupted creative bliss.

good luck

peace>

Maybe I am missing something here.

I meditated all night in a temple.

My technique consists of focusing on an object until I am in trance. At that point there are no thoughts, only a sense of hovering. I hover for various times. The setting of the temple amplified it by its peace and quiet. It was done overnight. In the morning the birds sang and I returned.

Either the others cannot adequately convey their technique or I cannot understand what they are talking about. It took me approximately 15 years to reach the hovering.

Now I can hover at will.

Ok, you don't mean that you actually hover, right? You just have the sense of hovering?
