- Aug 25, 2007Jeff,I admit to being rather attached to the idea of me, as inconsequential as I am ;-)I won't take long for me to reveal my ignorance regarding transcendental meditation. My appearance on this yahoo group is partially dishonest, in that I was not looking for a discussion on meditation. I was looking for Sean and happened to find him here. But I was and have been seeking more forums on spiritual discussion. I am not surprised looking for Sean would have led me to such discussion by default.Joy - not if that isn't a worthwhile experience, I don't know what is. Me or no me.Candy----- Original Message -----From: Jeff BelyeaSent: Sunday, August 26, 2007 6:39 AMSubject: Re: [Meditation Society of America] The power of knowledge gives you an extra edCandy -
My request was,"let me die"...and I did.
Now I just am, but there is no me. It's
much easier this way. Joyful, even.

> Bob, I recall once asking God to "don't let me die" in a similar
state of darkness. Since I was still there the next day, I spent some
time wondering if that meant he answered and cared or that he did not
exist at all. Then I spent some time wandering. Thus the bus ride
mentioned to Sean above.
