I've listened to some of Buhlman's guided meditation tapes. It's interesting stuff! It seems that modern life is so busy though.... Hardly any time to sit and tinker with consciousness. Hmmmm. Interesting question: is meditation and altering consciousness a luxury activity?
I've never thought of it as a luxury activity, but that's an interesting way to frame it, Jem7. I know people who vacation at the Monroe Institute, so for them it does fit into the idea of luxury. Kind of like going to a spa.
I get so busy and then I don't do it (meditation). And then, I think I'm secretly worried that I'll do it wrong or it will not be as cool as I hoped. I guess it's like desert: I keep eating my peas, knowing the cake will be later.
Does anyone else WANT TO meditate a lot, and somehow you don't do it?
