  1. Please allow me to introduce myself and steal 1 minute of your precious time. First of all I would like to apologize for my bad english. I'm 45 years old and I'm from Rome. I'm very into spirituality since I was 18,but im new in living unbound ( wonderful site!!) so I have decided to make this post because I have completely fallen in love with the Kashmir Shaivism. I would kindly want to ask you about some very important matters. I certainly hope you can help me: 1. In your experience, do you think that I could follow Kashmir Shaivism path 100% without any guru/master/group close to where I live? Unfortunately I have nobody close to me in my area so I think the only way for me would be to follow it through texts and techniques. Do you think it would be possible? 2. I don't know where to find the spiritual discipline techniques of Kashmir Shaivism. I know it uses yoga,asanas, pranayama but also mantra, yantra bahajans, pujas .... but, which are these techniques exactly? Do you know them? For instance, when someone follows kriya yoga path, he knows the exact techniques to do in a very precise way. But, which are the techniques to follow in Kashmir Shaivism beyond the metaphysic vision of the world? I can read the shiva sutras, the vijnana bhairavana tantra, all the the trika and kaula stuff for example, all of them fondamentals but, which are the spiritual techniques to practice daily? I cannot find them. Do you know them? This is the main problem I'm finding: the techniques, not the vision of the world. they are secret???? 3. I have tried to email dr. Dyczkowsky but he is not responding me. I have read writings of Daniel Order and Lakshman Joo academy, but they give you almost nothing online. I have also read Jean Klein, Eric Baret, André Padoux, Lilian Silburn, and they only give a theological and philosophical vision (I'm not an intellectual, just to make it clear, I'm just a humble spiritual seeker,interested on the mystic side). I hope with all of my heart that you can help me. Warm regards and thanks in advance btw: thanks a lot to Doug for his kind private answer
  2. Recently, i have noticed the importance of the last Thought (activities, mind state) that a person has before sleeping, in affecting the next day in terms of the energy and mind state the person wakes up with and the quality of the whole new day. For example: watching Tv, drama series or something violent before sleeping, will make the person wakes up in a bad mood or feeling tired, Also this is similar to masturbation, thinking of negative thoughts or eating unhealthy food before sleeping. A lot of teachers recommend doing meditation at night before sleeping and ending it with metta of love and compassion allowing the mind to become calm and have positive thoughts. also it is recommend to meditate in the morning to empower your day. (usually if you meditate at night you are more likely to meditate in the morning and be holding that energy during the day) Also meditating at night allow to improve lucidity in the dream, which can be used in solving life problems that arises in the dream state or realize fantaisies. also, if someone try to solve homework or maybe do their work at night before sleeping.. you are more likely to find yourself more motivated to work on them the next day. So, What do you think?
  3. I have just heard about this group meditation on February 1st and I think it's important. Please join if you can, the power of concentrated prayer and meditation is palpable, as I am sure we all know. On February 1, 2106, millions of people will participate in one of the largest and most important synchronized meditations in history. James Twyman, who has been called the Peace Troubadour, will walk into a Syrian village, within eyesight of ISIS, along with leaders of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and a local Druze leader, to sing prayers of peace while millions of people "Pulse" the region with harmonic energy. Please join us. Go to www.WorldPeacePulse.com to register, and we will send the exact time of the vigil on January 31st. Watch the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R34hJE1i7B4
  4. Here's a good overview on the cognitive neuroscience of mindfulness meditation from Philippe Goldin, a research scientist who heads the Clinically Applied Affective Neuroscience group in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University.
  5. For me there is nothing quite so comforting than the simple joy of painting. Mixing the swirl of colors on my palette. The heavy feel of the oil as it slides into the pigment. Each stroke of the palette knife brings unity to differing colors. They dance together in a stately waltz. A well balanced brush in hand. The feel of the paint filled brush on the canvas. Pulling, gliding, mixing. Nothing else is there. Just the paint. Just the color. The scent of linseed oil. The sharpness of turpentine. Just you and the moment of placing color. All else falls away. Stillness in motion. Motion frozen in time. A thought, a feeling, a fleeting moment stretched out eternally. Letting go of the mind, let the hand do what it does. No interference from the moment. You are not there. Only color. Only paint.
  6. For anyone interested in starting an effective, full-range program of meditation and yoga, a great resource is the Advanced Yoga Practices system developed by Yogani. Several of us involved with this community have experience with AYP, and it can be beneficial for a wide range of people, especially those with no previous experience (the practices are advanced - you don't have to be).
