    Actually, I'm going to try and guide some people through the meditation in vent. If you're intersted, come in.

    Turbulent, but nice. How did the Vent meditation go? I don't have an account for Vent yet.

    I stopped at approximately 13 minutes. I started shaking irritably so I rest myself down and stopped.
    I had done a form of visual mediation similar to what I did last time where I have to become at one with my surroundings. Again, I did the standing meditation to allow easier flow of the surrounding energy and my own to move in and out of my body. As for why I started shaking irritably I'm not fully sure. Something in my body finds it difficult to create peaceful harmony between the inner and outer worlds.

    It's good to have a teacher to guide you through stuff like this. One reason is that meditators often experience violent shaking and all sorts of pains and aches as they let go of tension in their body (which has psychological impact, since the body and mind are connected).

    Out of curiosity, is it a Tibetan visualization you're doing?

    I was in guided meditation in vent for about five or ten minutes, until I opened my eyes and saw that the OP of this very thread had written some argumentative things in a thread, including the statement "you're all wrong."

    Yeah, good times.

    The guided meditation was good, I enjoyed it. I found the laying down position really helped in terms of comfort and allowed me to breathe really, really well. The upright position I was always a bit too tense and fidgety, I think.

    With less of my mind focused on body tension I was able to follow the breathing and air through my body a lot better and afterwards I just felt really, really good.

    I wouldn't say Tibetan. The meditation I use is very much similar to Tai Chi meditation. Different body movements and visualisations to guide the body through the spiritual experience. The goal is to become at one with the surroundings and if done correctly one will feel 'enlightened'. Getting there can be difficult and may take a lot of practice. Then there will be the length of how long one will keep it that must take more practice also.

    It's nice to have access to people who have studied meditation, and also implemented it.

    I can't thank you enough for shortening my learning curve.
    I have no time to read anything that is not mission critical at this point.

    And who talk about it publicly helps too...

    I used to talk about such things publicly, but for the most part I don't seem to find many people nowadays whom I think would take such conversation well. As Jaggi Vasudev has said "Some things are too fantastical to talk about" along with "there is no point in talking about experiences that lie outside of your current level of awareness. You will not directly understand them, and regardless of whether one believes such tales or not, it is only a belief" Anyways...

    Fwiw, I've been impressed with SB's directions and discussion.

    I would do it. Every time I have meditaed has been a pretty good experience.
