Five Meaningful Methods of Meditation

Five Meaningful Methods of Meditation
In my last article, A Layman’s Guide to Mindful Meditation, we discussed the “why” of meditation. In this article we will discuss the “how.” There’s a myriad of methods for meditation. Some are easy and some are difficult. All require daily practice to perfect. Here are five of the most popular methods of meditation and what they each bring to the Meditation Table. Mindfulness, or Spiritual Method: A most popular method comes from Buddhist meditation practice of Vipassana. How to: One can practice mindfulness in any position, even lying down. Zen or Zazen Method: Also from the Buddhist tradition, this method is all about simply sitting. How to: The most effective positioning of the body for the practice of Zazen is the stable, symmetrical position of the seated Buddha. Kundalini or Transcendental Method: This method comes from the Vedanta Hinduism tradition and ties into different forms of Yoga practices. How to: Breathing is primary.

Detailing the research in Public Library of Science ONE, AEC's Arturo Casadevall said his interest was piqued five years ago when he read about how a robot sent into the still-highly-radioactive Chernobyl reactor had returned with samples of black, melanin-rich fungi that were growing on the ruined reactor's walls. "I found that very interesting and began discussing with colleagues whether these fungi might be using the radiation emissions as an energy source," explained Casadevall. Casadevall and his co-researchers then set about performing a variety of tests using several different fungi.

Shadow people A shadow person (also known as a shadow figure, shadow being or black mass) is an alleged paranormal entity. It is believed by skeptics to be a type of hallucination where the subject perceives a patch of shadow in their peripheral vision to be a living, humanoid figure. However, paranormal researcher Heidi Hollis has expressed the belief that shadow people are malevolent supernatural entities.[1] Game over, Bitcoin. Long live human-based currencies! While being a tremendous proof of concept, the distributed cryptocurrency Bitcoin is fundamentally flawed as an alternative money system, critics say. It is now time for truly radical monetarists to build on this technical experiment and move to the next level of the monetary revolution: a truly human-based digital monetary system. Since its launch in 2009, Bitcoin has turned from a crypto-anarchist project into a hype topic in the worldwide web community and beyond.

How to Meditate: What you didn't know about Empty Mind Techniques and your bliss Sow a thought and you reap an act; Sow an act and you reap a habit; Sow a habit and you reap a character; Sow a character and you reap a destiny. Empty mind meditation is one of the most popular and yet misunderstood types of meditation.

Your very happiness begins in your emotions – combined with your thoughts, they take you up to heaven or down to hell.

DIY Survival Candles Candles are an easy-to-use source of emergency lighting and a little bit of heat. I'm shocked to see some of the prices that are charged for long burning candles sold for survival or emergency preparedness - if you want to buy a dozen or so candles, the cost really starts to add up. Never fear! You can make your own survival candles at home for cheap, using high-quality, long burning soy wax. It's an easy project - the materials are easy to buy and you won't need any specialized tools.
