Yes, I am not implying any kind of levitation.

It is like being in stasis.

Cheers,

Were you high at the time, & what type of meditation was it? Like were you thinking about things, or just clearing your mind?

The way I meditate is by thinking about nothing, but not TRYING to think about nothing... not forcing my mind off, just being. Like love, it just is...

Longest I meditate sober was 3 hours, I don't remember how long I did it on mushrooms though. Yesterday was the day I did it for 3 hours. I'm going to try to meditate for 4 hours tonight now that I read a quote by Osho which says with meditation there is never a limit to how much you should do it.

I don't understand someone meditating for hours on end. I've never gone over 40 minutes myself. I have meditated for close to an hour on mushrooms before. Always on the come down. Very peaceful relaxation.

I have been in the posture of meditating for up to 3 hours,
I don't think that quantity matches quality, although, you do get stoneder the longer you sit (to a point - jhana's, but I am not much for comparing stonedness either after a certain stonedness you get amnesia, or sleep as icelander remarks).

So really I have only meditated - in one session for a max 40 minutes - as meditation (not side trips or dreaming - ok maybe about 10 side trips on the ramp into the session and 10 side trips recovered during the session),
and usually I can do 10 breaths in one adaptive meditative frame of mind before distraction breaks concentration - on the spot, and usuall follow that up with another continuous frame or two (even in the kitchen or at a stoplight) - but to spread it out takes some preparation, i.e posture, isolation etc.
but I re-start ('adaptively'), so that really categorizes all of  the focus break re-focus (repeat) as one session.

I use the tip of my nose as a point of concentration (unless I have some pain in which case I put my mind into the center of the pain) and follow the in and out breaths silently noting "beginning, middle, end" at the appropriate part of each of the in and out breaths.

distraction is the norm, and i recover from it without being upset ('adaptively').

It just takes discipline and isn't as easy as saying "fuck it" and then go watch TV.  It's just like when someone says they need to start working out again.  Which I need to also start doing again.

Then you don't love it enough to put out the effort.  Move on. I've stayed in shape by working out daily since I was in my early 20s.  I like it and when I don't anymore I'll quit.  The payoff is well worth it.  I meditated for a year or so if I remember correctly and I quit because just taking a hot shower and a nap got me there faster and just as good.

Meditation is about lessening the ego and I can easily meditate longer than any of you! :razz:

read in my psych text they've done brain scans on people doing various different types of meditation. what they've found is the parts of the brain that usually light up when people pray (same parts associated with love, tranquility, all that good shit) also light up during eastern meditation techniques.

one major difference between meditation traditional to groups like the eastern types and what the scan found with stuff we're more familiar with like christian prayer, is that although they both lit up the same areas that are associated the love/peace and shit, the eastern guys also had parts light up that were associated with focus, which the Christians didn't have as much. the scan found all the different meditation techniques had slightly different effects (which is kind of obvious).

it's hard work. doesn't seem like it on the outside because it's just sitting still for extended periods of time, but it does potentially have tangible and powerful effects when pursued. I mean, you don't just pick up a guitar and start shredding, you know? all those monks they scanned were basically the mental equivalent of body builders, most of them having dedicated themselves to meditative practice since they were small children (and I'm assuming the Christians they picked up for the study were pretty dedicated members of their faith as well). you may not have had a lot of success, but I wouldn't knock it, the effects are real even if you didn't get a lot out of it.

Well that's my point.  Most people don't start out their life by moving to the monastery at five and learning to meditate before their head is full of other shit.  Trying to become a great guitarist starting at 40 isn't going to get you far.  I've literally met and talked to dozens and dozens of meditators and they all talk about what is possible but it hasn't happened to them yet.  I never met one who had his shit together. :shrug:

Anyone however can get good at a hot shower and a nap.
