Can you go to npmr to heal your own self as in physical ailments? ... I want myself to be healthy so that I may be more productive in what I do and give good vibes to myself and others... Am I being selfish?...
Yes, but you don't necessarily have to think of it as traveling anywhere to do this, it doesn't have to be that complicated. You attempt to use your focused intent to affect the probability related to your health. It can be as simple as having an awareness about the food choices you are making. Things in your life may suddenly click in such a way that you do something different that brings you the health you desire. Hope for the best possible outcome and be willing to make changes. I don't think this is selfish at all my friend.
^ Does lucid dreaming fit into npmr or is it strictly obe and other stuff? Am I not experiencing paranormal because I'm not ready? I started meditating and some times I see images of hollywood and japanese movie ghosts. It scares me a little yea but it just proves to me that the media is so damn strong. Some times, I get scared about meditating because I think I'll see something I wont want to see. Again... influenced by media portrayal of psychotic etc and other stuff.
Hard to say. Things that are beyond our PMR could be considered paranormal. It depends on the experience of the individual ultimately to sort out what is what. To those that have much experience beyond PMR everything is normal. We are exactly where we need to be and you don't need "paranormal" things to grow and learn here. It does seem to be the case that the more growth you have the greater your perspective will be of the nature of reality. The things you see in meditation may represent a fear you should try to understand and overcome. Meditation is a tool to help you grow. When you encounter a problem try to work it out and move past it, so you can let these fears and insecurities go. You are what you think, consider what you expose your mind to and ask yourself if these are things that help you grow towards your goals.
..one of the patterns I see in me is that I tend to want to be with every woman that I find attractive whether I know that person through school or a random person at a mall....Perhaps this is high entropy desire running through me, etc. But speaking biologically, maybe its just pure sexual desire, a beta male gazing at the female it can't have etc. O btw, did I also mention I feel like a pussy that I'm here spiritualizing the matter of woman instead of just going to talking to these people because I lack some balls? :)
I am very happy to hear you share your thoughts and feelings here. Please do not think negatively about your choice to share them with us. As you grow you will be concerned less about what other people think of you. This is that pesky ego popping up. You can't find security in the opinions of others. Security comes from within yourself. I would say that your desires are part of being a young man. As I got older I noticed these signals much less, now they are balanced and calm. I too see many beautiful people, these days I try to make it a habit of elevating my thoughts about them. I think "What a beautiful person." and generally try to send loving thoughts, look past the body and try to get a sense of the personality as a whole.
Last question. Okay, so you do the meditation. for months. years. What about your external life. like school. and job. and stuff like that. do you just continue to do them normally? Will the meditation give new ways of going through your external jobs and duties?
Look at meditation as just another thing you do in your life, if you so desire. I find that it is important to be balanced in everything you do, and try to enjoy everything you are doing. I work, and have friends. I do so many things, play music, joke and laugh, talk to many great people, and some days I meditate. I am not hardcore about it, a few times a week. The thing is, I am much more aware of my emotions and perceptions. I try to stop myself from saying stupid things, or acting foolishly. It really is just a daily effort to be more loving. I pay much more attention to everything and look for feedback on how I am doing with my growth. Every moment is precious for that. Find what works for you. I know some people meditate twice daily, others not at all, but as I said it's just a tool.
Sorry for the extensive questions. I'm simply utilizing you all to make me understand lil by lil because my professors in school wont.
We are all teachers and we are all students. No need to apologize thank you for posting here.
