spirituality....i started reading about native american spirituality when i was a teen. Then i started reading about Hinduism and Buddhism not too long after. I had the opportunity to merge those two with yoga 2 years ago. Introspection that is encouraged through Buddhism and spirituality, has taught me similar compassion and more loving to myself and others. I am not sure how i feel about related ufos and alien life and spirituality? i will think about it for a while and get back to you. for some reason i have never tried to mend the two.
the first couple of times i was being taught "guided meditation" (in which i had just before been working with myself) I believe i had an experience with Mara.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mara_(demon
I didnt know it was mara or (to my perception) until a little later. But I found myself feeling very sexual and seeing things i was afraid of (death, loss, anger) during times i should have been feeling at peace and relaxing my mind and body. I worked through and fought by repetition of bring myself to the now instead of past or future wants and desires.
I guess i would like to hear more about how u came on the idea of merging the two
