Re "There's not a single person here that'd even test out my imaginings":
I'm game! A while back I posted details on FFL of a variant on "TM" that involved effortlessly allowing one's awareness to come back to a relaxed focus of attention (instead of to a mantra/syllable/thought) that I had tried and found effective - though not as effective as using a mantra. I got shouted down! Have you ever come across a meditation technique that is simultaneously as effective as TM and as easy? ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> wrote : Only three ways, eh? Scientist? I have written at length about edifying ways to use the mind -- over a 100 times by my count -- each time a different "technique." And I could do a thousand more. But, seeing as there's not a single person here that'd even test out my imaginings, hey, lucky me, cuz now I don't have to try to teach. I loves me some preachin', but teaching is a chore. No sense even handing out the text books in this class. The strange thing is that I like David's vibe. It's hard to grudge jab at him. I think he's a very successful true believer -- found a way to explain his lifestyle to himself, and not too bothered about how inept his explanation might be to FFLers.
