"Slow Down and Think."

 

What "meditation" means to me is finding what is "in between," or "in the middle" of two things. For instance, between two walking steps, feel all the little movements between the two. Or feel all the experiences between two breaths. Another way to meditate, of course, is to attend to a single changing thing, like the breath.

By giving up control momentarily though meditation, we find deeper, more trustworthy control within ourselves. This site has many meditative activities, some with the aid of the computer, some just with yourself.

Drugs Which Helped Reveal the Information

Water, Tea, Coffee, Alcohol, Ecstasy, Psilocybin, Marijuana, Cocaine, Ketamine, LSD, Chinese Herbal Medicines, ... and then and Psychiatric Medications!

So sorry for the social awkwardness of this unavoidable truth, but these drugs really do reaveal important information about self and others!

More About This Site...

The idea that meditation means what is in between was given to me when I was 18 or so (now I am 51) by my early inspirational teacher Stuart Heller, who made the Walking Your Talk website, WalkingYourTalk.com I am a very slow learner, but I have been thinking and playing with the idea for a long time. I am still learning and exploring.

The complementary approach, attending conscientiously to a single changing thing, like the breath, came from various sources. However, I vividly remember focusing on sitting still when very young, and on listening intently to the changing lyrics and sound of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel music as a teen.

These early meditative experiences led to my being interested in meditating on all sorts of phenomena, and eventually led to this website.
