Dear Suicidal,

Years of accumulated pain become an addiction. Pain we never wanted inrepparttar first place becomes an old friend. When things go well for us, we miss this old friend. We feel uncomfortable that something is missing. We can no longer respond to pleasure or enjoy it. We don't quite understand that we are doing this by free choice. We focus on external influence and deny ourselvesrepparttar 122283 very freedom of choice.

We fail to meetrepparttar 122284 expectations of others and don't know what we should expect of ourselves, simply because we don't know who or why we are. When we do know these things,repparttar 122285 expectations of others lose all importance and we become very reasonable about what we expect of ourselves. Allrepparttar 122286 pressure is then removed. Withrepparttar 122287 pressure off, we see everything more clearly, as though a mental, emotional and spiritual fog has lifted from our lives.

Lift your eyes to heaven and give thanks forrepparttar 122288 pain you have known. This will berepparttar 122289 standard against which to measure your pleasure, joy and happiness, once you have found who and why you are.

Some religions deny reincarnation. Some support it. No matter what we personally believe,repparttar 122290 wisest assumption is that reincarnation isrepparttar 122291 case. That you can earn a better or worse life in this one. Numerology will tell you aboutrepparttar 122292 lesson you are now here to learn. If you short circuit this learning process, you will be forced to repeat it as you might a grade in school. When you take matters into your own hands inrepparttar 122293 hope of escaping your pain, instead of learning from it, your circumstances inrepparttar 122294 next life may be far worse than this one, with twicerepparttar 122295 pain and twicerepparttar 122296 struggle. Who would want that?

We are made to think thatrepparttar 122297 beliefs of others belong to us. We defend these beliefs as though they were our very own and hard won. In most cases they were planted in our subconscious by mere suggestion, as a hypnotist might do. Accept them or reject them. It is foolish to fight for or against them. We struggle when we need to simply relax.

We can believe whatever we choose, no matter what others say, which is often NOT what they really believe. Because we can choose whatever we want to believe, we can believe things that cause us pain. We can just as easily believe things that give us pleasure. The natural person seeks pleasure. The confused person chooses pain. If we can only care enough aboutrepparttar 122298 world around us and how we fit, we can end all confusion and totally transform a life that only seems to have so little value. Think of yourself asrepparttar 122299 caterpillar who cannot know a great transformation is inrepparttar 122300 works.

A small book that can be read in a few hours, teaches anyone how to tap into and directrepparttar 122301 power that transforms caterpillars into butterflies, at will. It is titledrepparttar 122302 Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. It was written by Deepak Chopra. Once you have learned who and why you are, this book will show you how to be and do what you choose and what you must. It will show you how to find true happiness. The world would be a far better place if everyone read this book in school. The more we read it and follow its advice,repparttar 122303 more peace and happiness we find within us. Drop me a line when you emerge from your cocoon.

What does Meditation music do to you?

But our brain should not be considered like an organ what produces our consciousness, we should consider it instead likerepparttar product of our consciousness. The connections betweenrepparttar 122282 cells in our brain become created followingrepparttar 122283 necessities of our consciousness. In this way, our brain evolves and produces his self and our implicit consciousness. Therefore, must our mind be seen as a potentiality!

Modern brain research indicates that long-term meditation does in fact balancerepparttar 122284 brain, creating a synchrony betweenrepparttar 122285 two hemispheres. They discovered that electrical brain wave patterns of meditators changed, in periods of deep meditation, to a single, coherent pattern, indicating that both sides ofrepparttar 122286 brain — ordinarily out of phase — were working together in a balanced, synchronous manner. This and other research has demonstrated that this balancing, or synchronization, ofrepparttar 122287 hemispheres ofrepparttar 122288 brain happens in all forms of meditation. The degree of hemispheric synchronization can be very precisely determined by measuringrepparttar 122289 meditator’s brain wave patterns with an electroencephalograph (EEG) machine. Any kind of focusing will bring about a degree of brain synchronization (i.e. meditation). The greaterrepparttar 122290 focus,repparttar 122291 greaterrepparttar 122292 synchronization (andrepparttar 122293 deeperrepparttar 122294 meditative state). The mystic, then, sitting to meditate, balancesrepparttar 122295 brain through some form of focusing, whether by repeating a prayer or mantra, keepingrepparttar 122296 attention onrepparttar 122297 flow ofrepparttar 122298 breath, staring at a candle flame, or by using one of many other techniques. Whateverrepparttar 122299 technique,repparttar 122300 effect onrepparttar 122301 brain is substantiallyrepparttar 122302 same—brain synchronization, and after much practice, transcendental experience. So just what is this transcendental awareness? Is it becoming some kind of a blob of undifferentiated guru that wants to sit and stare at its navel instead of going to work inrepparttar 122303 morning, or some kind of robed, smiling person handing out flowers inrepparttar 122304 airport? Contrary to common Western mythology about such things, persons operating continually in this type of awareness (a kind of 24-hour-a-day state of meditative alertness sometimes referred to as "the awakened mind") are more productive, happier, and capable of more intimacy, more creativity, and more wholeness. Sincerepparttar 122305 filter through which they view reality does not split everything in to categories based on arbitrary early life programming, they see life more objectively, without fear and judgment, without a need to manipulate others, without need for approval—in short, withoutrepparttar 122306 limitations of mental programming. This is, in fact, a state of peak performance. And, whenrepparttar 122307 brain is in this highly synchronous and coherent state, it produces large quantities of pleasure-causing petrochemicals called endorphins, makingrepparttar 122308 whole experience very pleasurable!

In order to acceleraterepparttar 122309 personal growth process, can you take advantage fromrepparttar 122310 results of modern brain research and userepparttar 122311 combined method between meditation and brain wave stimulation with scientifically developed meditation music, what stimulates your brain in a more effective and faster way than traditional meditation. By doing that you'll exclude any upcoming difficulties regarding focusing your mind and concentration. Music is harmony; start practicing your meditation with harmoniouslymeditation music!
