October 9, 2012 | Leave a comment When I first thought about creating this website, which by the way was long before I actually created it, I wanted to share the many different meditation techniques I have learned and created over the years. You see, I first got into meditation in 2006, and since then I have tried many different meditation techniques, and even created my own. Over the years, I have a full range of meditation experiences, everything from nothing much, to very peaceful deep relaxation, and all the way to some truly out-of-this-world transcendental experiences. I was going to share many different meditation techniques on this website, but shortly after I set up this site I bought the book True Meditation by Adyashanti. This gave me a very different approach to meditation, the foundation of which is: Allow everything to be as it is. Try it now. See if you can sit and just do nothing at all for 10 or 20 minutes, or maybe more. Just see what happens if you let go of all control, let go of all manipulation, and just allow everything to be exactly as it is right now. However you feel, whatever thoughts are going through your head, whether you feel happy, sad, bored, anxious, relaxed, whatever. Just do nothing. Just let everything be just the way it naturally is. Okay, so that’s the basic principle, the foundation. If you want to explore it further, I highly recommend you get the book. Click here to see it on Amazon. It’s only about 90 pages long, extremely easy to read, and comes with a CD with guided meditations.
