There are many forms of meditation, with well thought-out prescribed techniques, some of which are full of siddha, while some times emotional contemplation is also referred to as "meditation". What form of meditation do you practice?

English doesn't have a term as specific as intended, and most people, on this forum, wouldn't recognized foreign or alien terms that more specificaly identify "intuitional practices", taking one from crude toward subtle. Among other languages, such a concept is referred to as "sadhana" in Sanskrit.

Whatever the reason for this vast Universe, whatever the mysteries of this sublime cosmic womb, the force that guides the stars guides you too. You are never alone or helpless.

Maybe you could discribe the different kinds of meditation. I don't know much about it, and don't know what siddha is or means. Welcome to the board, by the way.

Hello, Greeney2, thank you for the welcome.

The link provides sufficient descriptions for each of the identified practices. I tried highlighting it more to demonstrate it's a link though they seem to debilitate the functionality of the link. Siddha, generically, is spiritual empowerment. A yogi who has been austere in their sincerity and truthful in their practice will enhance their insightfulness and veracity in assisting others in evolving most expeditiously in every realm of life. In the context of the mention in the posting, it has to do with spiritual surity delivered into the vitality of the practice, such as the power of a person mantra, imbued with siddha by a tantrika guru. A person so gifted with a siddha mantra may also read their mantra somewhere in a text, though despite the capacity to write such things, it is a living guru who empowers a phonemic with both meaning, vitality, and certainty of spiritual victory for a sincere practitioner to wrap their heart around.

At some time in your life you may have had someone who cooks a certain meal very well, such as a parent. They can teach others how it's prepared, the settings of the oven, even have the person they are teaching use their own ingredients, their own kitchen, set the cooker at that the exact settings, and timing, and yet it comes out differently for each and every other person, and for you, doesn't have the vital rapport that the original loving cook from which you've eaten such a dish embues into the meal. That is because there is more than conventional Newtonian physics involved.

There are times of spontaneous dynamic action that meet and exceeds necessity, when we do things we had no concept of being able to do. Such are transcendental moments and vital expression, some times that seem unrepeatable. There's an architecture to miraculous moments, far beyond Newtonian physics mindsets to perceive. Tantrika gurus are established in and expressive of such skills, including being anchored in the ubiquity of love at all times. When a person acheives samadhi, that person realizes that love is not one of several emotions, love is the optimization of homeostasis finding expression in their lives, with their self as the instrument of that universal love. The mundane mind is far too shallow and with too small a maximum perimeter to comprehend subtler realms. Tantra yoga facilitates the subtler realms through prescibed practices that polish and dilate each and every realm, including the capacity to embue siddha into a mantram or reorder the extant disfunctionality of a planet into a more sublime paradigm, and do so with the participants of the change believing that they did it all themselves.

Prayer is a form of meditation as is communion.

Not to me. Prayer is a two way conversation with your Father.

I'm sure we all do things that without knowing it are forms of meditation. I'm not sure I understand the differnt forms reading them on the survey, but I always thought meditation was no more than a way to just clear your mind and relax. Are simple things like just daydreaming forms of meditation? Who hasn't sat in the sand and watched the ocean waves breaking,(or the lake for you midwest guys) or just sit in a campground watching the wind in the trees? Ever had a bad day at work so you go out to the car for lunch, and just shut your eyes and block out everything to calm down? He hasn;t had times when all you wanted to do is shut out all thoughts, have total quiet, and think about nothing, total relaxation?

And I would also say that having a chat with God is an altered state if not meditation. That is, until it becomes so usual that it's no longer altered but is the norm instead.
