How Do You Get to Carnegie Hall?
Sleep and meditation are two different things having two different objectives.
Twenty minutes of mantra meditation usually lowers lactic acid more than five or six hours of sleep does.
Endorphins are for “losers,” and are highest in the first few hours after waking, indicating that most people start their day as a “loser.”
Listening to the Audible Life Stream is probably the most passive of the three meditation techniques (the other two being Carbonated Yawning and Mantra Meditation).
Oversimplified, a practitioner sits with his thumbs stuck in his ears and listens to the Inner Sounds in both ears while focusing on his right ear only.
The goal is to eventually be hearing the Audible Life Stream in the forehead and following it “upwards” from there.
Hearing the Inner Sounds in the left ear can be a sign of high blood pressure and/or high blood sugar.
Metaphysically, the center of the forehead is called Death’s Door or the Thousand-Petaled Lotus.
Anyone who hasn’t gone through Death’s Door is “practicing meditation,” and anyone who continually goes through it is “meditating.”
I’m still “practicing meditation,” but I’ve met several people who actually “meditate.”
One crusty old chiropractor in Grants Pass, Oregon, meditated involuntarily, thinking he had tinnitus of the forehead, and asked me for a remedy.
I told him what I heard Adano Ley say to someone in a similar situation …
“It took me eighteen years to get there. and I wouldn’t help you even if I could.”
Alistair Conwell (The Audible Life Stream: Ancient Secret of Dying While Living, 2010) wrote …
“In fact, if one is engaged in any sedentary activity like, for instance, reading, where the attention is strongly focused at or near the wisdom eye, there’s the possibility that one will unwittingly contact the Audible Life Stream very briefly. These experiences are certainly better than no experience at all (and should, at least, personally confirm the existence of the Audible Life Stream). However, these happenstance experiences are of no great spiritual benefit because the Audible Life Stream will rarely have the affect of drawing the soul upwards without knowledge of how to tune into it.”
