vertical line By my first awakening I mean FEELING.

By understanding meditation I mean "To study meditation is to study the Self. To study the Self is to forget the Self. To forget the Self is to be enlightened by all things."

By my last awakening I mean LOVE.

I don't expect your effort look like my effort.

You didn't answer the question.
Do you really believe that meditation will bring awakening with it?
Not what is meditation or what anything else is.

If you don't then .. why practice?
If you do then .. when will your practice be enough??

Endless meditation or consciousness conditioned by ignorance ... haha

No, you try to make people angry because you're hurt and angry.

"Stupidity" is another word for "not the way I want it to be".

Very selfish.

I mean, it's very selfish (i.e. self-centered) to act on anger to make other people angry with derision, insults, and abuse, as if that will fix anything. Like this: Collateral Murder

Okay, okay, see, there's kind of like the denotative function and then there's the connotative function, of. a. sigh. sorry. sign. You know, like, a perception of the difference between what a sign literally means and what a sign informs by implication. IYKWIM!!!
