    Lightbulb Mantra & Exercises to Stimulate Peace and Transpersonal States

    Oh yeah! Here's some of the stuff I like to do, for fun:

    * Consider, deeply, the possibility that all of the universe, including people's actions, ideas, and decisions, are determined, including your own contemplation.

    * Practice the mantra "Everything's okay, and there's nothing to worry about" and let your body calm down.

    * Try acting totally selfless and do your best to bring security and safety to the lives of others.

    * Try letting go, if even for a short while, of all my worries and analyses and just let myself be whatever I'm feeling.

    Try acting totally selfless and do your best to bring security and safety to the lives of others.

    The only one I might consider... but for how long?

    I'm not quite sure what you're talking about.....what exactly is a transpersonal state? (google isn't coming up with too much).

    After a long day, I often will sit in my chair, late at night....and just think for a while.

    Even if this is the case, it would be best to simply ignore it and put it out of mind, I think. If I were to find out beyond a shadow of a doubt that it's true, I'd probably become rather depressed.

    * Practice the mantra "Everything's okay, and there's nothing to worry about" and let your body calm down.

    But what if there is something to worry about? What if everything isn't okay? I know that worrying is futile, but "everything's okay" may be misleading.


    * Try acting totally selfless and do your best to bring security and safety to the lives of others.

    Just everyone in general, or the ones I like? There's some people who I'd rather not see secure and safe.


    * Try letting go, if even for a short while, of all my worries and analyses and just let myself be whatever I'm feeling.

    This one is good, and would be helpful if I were able to apply it. I wish I could. I've tried, but I start analyzing what I'm doing. It just doesn't work out so well.

    And I'm not trying to be critical or anything, I'm just saying that sometimes, practicality is needed to a certain extent. The world is a dangerous place full of stupid people who are potentially harmful (or worse, smart people who are definitely harmful) so being on guard is needed.

    That's how it's supposed to happen.

    P.S. Good to see you here dude.

    I don't really see why. But more importantly, if you really sink into the feeling that everything is scripted, it also leads to the realization that everything is united and similar. Lose free will (or the illusion of it) and gain universal companionship. I've also never really been bothered by the possibility that I don't have free will. Kinda seemed like a given to me.

    Then it's okay to worry! This isn't just , it's something I've been toying with and contemplating for a while.


    * Try acting totally selfless and do your best to bring security and safety to the lives of others.

    Just everyone in general, or the ones I like? There's some people who I'd rather not see secure and safe.
    Speaking for myself only, I'd say everyone. It's comforting the ones we don't like that present the greatest challenge and the greatest payoff.

    And I'm not trying to be critical or anything, I'm just saying that sometimes, practicality is needed to a certain extent. The world is a dangerous place full of stupid people who are potentially harmful (or worse, smart people who are definitely harmful) so being on guard is needed.
    I appreciate the challenge, sincerely, Anon.
