Do you want to hear my spiritual story?

After being depressed for the better part of my teenage years, I became interested in the practice of meditation. I would read philosophical ideas and sit and contemplate them. It was then that I began to understand how I can experience the structure of my mind. Always there was this idea that God and Truth did exist, but the overwhelming agony of overcoming my physical conformity in order to experience this bliss. The pain I experienced was emotional, but not purely mental. There was a certain physical pain that I had to suffer in order to see the shining light of truth. And it was shining. It penetrated the deepest recesses of my thoughts, and it propelled me to view life as meaningful and memorable, fantastic and full of love. The awakening to this notion of life has been the sole cause of everything that I now do, and I constantly seek the eternal bliss that I now know as the absolute truth.

    Good for you if your happy , just hope it will last , but usualy humans cant focus for long , we lose interest and seek again. Observe life , do not search

  2. Nice job buddy!
    I like what you said about viewing life as meaningful.
    I hope you continue to have this bliss as long as you want it.

  3. That’s a beautiful story. Keep doing what you’re doing! I recently read a study that was done on monks and how their brains are different from other people’s. MRI’s of their brains show that the area in the brain that happiness, peace, and love is centered in is highly developed and lit up way brighter than on any other test subjects. They theorize that the super- development in that area of their brains is a result of meditation. I try to meditate as much as I can, but I have a job and kids, and, well you know, a lot to do. I try to be mindful while I am doing all of those things, though, so maybe that helps. I’m a lot happier and more centered than many people I know so maybe it’s working.

  4. This happens to me too! well, meditation is great for our “soul;” which i don’t know what it is. If you do, please tell me. It’s great to be a philosopher. However, you might consider study something else also; because most philosopher makes a living by cleaning windows. If you have other special skills rather then philosophy; great. Some successful philosopher are writers and professor. However, a philosopher who’s rich doesn’t makes him more of a poor philosopher who’s living on a mountain and meditate 3 hours a day. So whatever you choose to do with your life,I hope that it’ll do the goods for humanity; and for yourself. Well, for the whole world…

  5. Depression is not pleasant;
    meditation indeed brings healing.
    An integration/demonstration of bliss into daily life is further progress, overcoming the duality of depression-meditation bliss.
    Would note “The Path of the Higher Self,” Mark Prophet,
    “Men in White Apparel,” Ann Ree Colton,
    “Testimony of Light,” Helen Greaves, and
    “The Great Divorce,” C. S. Lewis.

  6. Pork Chops, I barely have time to listen to myself breathe let alone listen to you go on and on about some adventure ride you’ve been on. I haven’t been on vacation since the St. Louis World’s Fair.
