      Pardon my lack of participation lately. I have been attending the temple fortnightly and been asking questions about Buddhism... which I believe yoga stems from [Hinduism/Buddhism]. I believe something that was important in the teachings was when I asked of awareness and a 'quiet mind'. I believe the 'quiet mind' aspect was very important to WILDing - when I WILD'd 'by accident', it was always when I was in a meditative trance where everything would only be observed.
      The answer I received was in relation to letting go, attachment, and being detached.
      I haven't attempted any WILDs lately, but I will after my final exam of the next two months, tomorrow. Hopefully after things settle down with school, I will dedicate more time into the practices.

      I hope that having some meditation stuff to practice will give you a small help in your seeking. You have a lot to sort through, and I am glad that you want to look beyond what ever your own parents have taught you. In the end, do not join a system, just take the best parts of each thing you wexplore and form a view that is your own.

      Grasping this concept came to me quite unexpectedly last fall during a conversation with a friend I had just met. Our original premise was that Everything (meaning the greatest whole of existence in which nothing, material or otherwise may escape, this is represented by the outer ring of the yin yang in taoism) is identical to nothing (meaning the antithesis of that whole). The ramifications of this are fuzzy, and I originally tried to write a book about it, but no one seemed able to follow where I was going with it.

      What's more important I feel now is the idea that opposites are not diametrically opposed to each other, rather the fact that they are opposites means that they are bound in the same category.

      Think of it like a thermometer, you can't tell me where cold begins and hot ends or the inverse. Every point is simply less hot and more cold, or more hot and less cold in relation to the other points on the standard. This means that the difference is simply in degree.

      Similarly, at what volume does sound become quiet? When does it become loud? They are only differences in degree. Similarly, we must recognize that matter is the opposite of awareness. The fact is that the simplest form of matter, or if you will, a singular point containing everything before a big bang differentiates it, is the inverse of awareness (or consciousness), which are present everywhere in the physical world precisely because they are the truth behind the illusion.

      The last thought I'll leave you with is to think of a metallic spinning top. Assume it begins at rest, and is going to continue to spin faster and faster indefinitely with no friction.

      As it spins, it will eventually reach a speed at which it appears to be at rest, as it increases further, it will begin to emit a low frequency sound, next the sound gets higher, then the sound becomes inaudible to the human ear. further still and it will begin to glow, moving from a dark red toward a bright white. Afterward it will begin to display the forces of magnetism and electricity, then on to X-rays, then on to radiation, then past a point understood by science in which it will eventually end at a point in which the object ceases to exist and only the purest incarnation of perfect awareness or consciousness remains.

      I don't know how much clearer this will make things for you, because everyone responds differently to different explanations, but the point is that your awareness can be in a dream and in real life because the awareness is reality, and everything else is the dream, or illusion.

      It's the most amazing thing. Yesterday it was hard, and today it is easy. Just a good night's sleep, and yesterday's mysteries are today's masteries.

      Thanks for the reply, Sivason.
      Although I am now formally a lay Buddhist, I do not restrict myself of information of any kind. Again, thank you for doing this course. With uni exams finished, I am now making an attempt to meditate throughout the day and meditate myself to sleep again. It's amazing the degree of which one does not realise their mind has been noisy and restless.
      You will be hearing again from me soon.

      Buddhist? Good for you. Does your family know and accept it?
