    Choi's Journey of the Conscious Mind

    Attempt 18: Occupy The Mind

    Last night I fell asleep unconscious fairly fast. But when I woke up in the morning again I started meditating immediately.
    And I ended up dreaming unaware, but I remembered when I woke up that it was only withing seconds after starting meditating. I did one more attempt and after each mantra I counted a number. I reached the number 100 which means that I lay there for approximately 10 minutes before I gave up. I am always obsessed by timing my attempts. But it only makes me bored and makes me stressed. So I am going to stop doing that.

    I have read about 60 pages of Thomas Campbell's "My Big TOE" and I just read about the time he learned to meditate.

    He went to a Transcendental Meditation lesson for 20 $ and was told to repeat a "secret" mantra to occupy the mind.
    He was skeptical but he wanted it to reduce stress, so he tried it out. In his first attempt he was supposed to sit for 20 minutes, but when the teacher yelled that the time was up, he had actually been sitting there for 40 minutes.
    He practiced regularly with two 20 minute attempts per day, and he sometimes found himself being thoughtless in a dark void of nothingness and he was jolt awake. When he tried to move he had trouble moving.

    Now I am going to read about his first meeting with Bob Monroe. (He talks about shared non-physical experience! Not so weird since the non-physical world is as real as this one. But I have to experience it myself to believe it though.)

    So now I am going to start my journey and start meditating regularly as well.

    I will write here if I experience something special, but not necessarily each day.

    Take care and good luck to you!

    I'll be back :D
