vertical line Posted on May.22.2008 @ 06:54PM EDT by shayne

Follow your breaths. in and out. Before you where aware of it you were not.

Develop pinpointedness of mind.

Dont wobble between alternatives.

Dont focus on one thing and follow an ism.

The negative character of the Asura in Hinduism seems to have evolved over time. In general, the earliest texts have the Asuras presiding over moral and social phenomena (e.g. Varuna, the guardian of ?tá, or Bhaga, the patron of marriages) and the devas presiding over natural phenomena (e.g. Ushas, whose name means "dawn", or Indra, a weather god).

Lovin' Hindu mythology. Is there a game based on the Hindu figures? Would love something I can absorb visually.

vertical line Aha, that's it!  Shayne's a Wobbler wobbling, in the land of the collywobbles, gobbling a load of old cobblers cobbling  He was aware of it after he was not aware of it.  And he won't be aware of it again before he's developed.

I don't know.  Shayne's the one to ask.  What you quote there is an understanding of what he opines in the first post of this thread.  Read it and see, if you haven't already.  And if you have, then read it again.  Or don't. Or forget about it. If, that is, you don't have a problem with it - the words, that is.  Or the meaning of it - the semantics, that is.  All the best, will that is.
