You seem proud of being a walking corpse.

I had to figure this out for myself.
There is no reason anybody couldn't do it, but a conducive environment really, really helps.
I doubt it could be successfully taught.

If you don't have perfect pitch, get a tuning fork and learn the pitch of "A" - 440 hz.
This pitch, and its lower octaves, will come in very useful for background chanting, either silently or aloud.
The idea of chanting sounded stupid to me, too, until I found out - by doing - that "Om" as in "Auuuuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..." is the perfect resonant exhale, especially at 440 hz.

Breathing, yes. People ridicule this idea, never having been aware of what it can do or how far it can go.
There comes a point, when attention is paid to conscious-breathing, where one is no longer consciously breathing, but is conscious of being-breathed.
This state is the beginning of ego-death. The point at which one becomes aware of being a part of something far greater than oneself.

Love isn't something one does, or even something that one feels.
Love is what one is, when one realizes it.

Satisfaction is the lack of desire. Nothing pushes, nothing pulls.
Whatever 'happiness' is, satisfaction is a considerable part of it.

Contentment isn't a good thing in your book?
Did I read that right?

It generally is, since so few have any real notion of what it is.
Perhaps the word, itself, has so lost its meaning, that it has become useless.
But I consider happiness to be the state arrived at when nothing draws one's awareness away from no-thing.
Balance is happiness. AKA bliss.
It is achieved by awareness of nothing.
Nothingness. No mind. No state. No desire. No Thing.

Many say: "Nothing will bring you happiness".
But the truth is: nothing WILL bring you happiness.

Well that's exactly what I said, before you questioned why I would say it.
There is no point, unless the point is a transcendent one.
One not dependent upon laws or the modern state of things.
My wife and I, for example, have transcended man-made rules and attitudes.
But we have something almost nobody has.
We really had to work at it.

Fuck and run, without any intention of caring for the object of the fucking.
Or for the potential result.

What is there to gain???
The fact that in the gaining, bliss results, is neither here nor there.
Purpose is something that transcends individual desire for gain.
You do it because it is the reason you exist.

"Set free" to join with the larger entity: reality: God.
The soul has no connection with the individual identity that humans think they are.
Yet it is the essence of everything a human is. And infinitely more.

But this is about loneliness...
Loneliness is good until the ego decides it isn't good.
And the only reason it decides this is because it is woefully incomplete by itself.
It needs something it can never have.
Because nothing about it is real.

The soul is both alone, and everything-at-once. The idea of loneliness is not applicable to it.

We all started out as products of the underlying reality (God), with unlimited potential.
All made of the same basic stuff.
Do we grow and thrive, along the way, or become withered parodies of what we might have been?
This is the nature of 'free-will'.
It is my personal conviction that we do not start out with a soul, but as the viable seed of one.
Conceiving this soul and nurturing it, finally setting it free, is our purpose.
But, like sperm, few will actually succeed in realizing this purpose.
It's all very mysterious, as it should be.

Growing a soul is a very lonely business, in its way.
While being the most satisfying thing there is, so few manage it, that the one who does is an island, in a remote ocean, usually only with an empty horizon for company.

Really, it's about adaptability, which is the key to balance.
This is one of the glaring flaws of leftism, which actively encourages people to never adapt again, let alone develop. Watch a leftist move, and you'll easily see the lumbering, awkward lack of balance and grace.
How you see yourself in relation to reality is the key to health and the start of wisdom.
Which is the polar opposite of seeing an external world in relation to yourself.

Everything changes, moment by moment. It is a good idea to remember that so must you.

Well, let's see...
There's Frank, and there's Bert, and Al and Dave.
Lenny, Fred and Gary. Mick and Oscar, Marty and Phil.
Just to name a few.

Step one is the awareness that what you think you know may be completely wrong.
