  1. Alchohol is harmful, clouds your awareness and not good for the body/mind at all, thus it is low consciousness. I'm not demonizing alchohol though, there's nothing wrong with drinking once in a while. Eckhart Tolle likes to drink wine, for example.
  2. It depends on my mood, but I usually do 2 types of journaling: 1. Contemplation (Serious topics like non-duality) 2. Stream of consciousness (I just write whatever's on my mind. This tends to be chaotic and unorganized. The purpose is just to let it all out.)
  3. Yup, that's what I do as well. I have a job, which I don't really like, so I work on my future career every afternoon and on weekends.
  4. Cross legged on the floor with some blankets. That's all for me. I prefer meditation as natural as possible.

  6. @dflores321 You're welcome! Let me know how it goes.
  7. I'm pretty much at this point in my practise as well. This is what I like to remind myself of when I try to solve this intellectually: If awareness is everything and is 'under' every experience, then "I" don't need to do anything or figure out anything. Just be with the silence.
  8. @dflores321 These are pretty good poses: Also, when you're meditating, make sure that you're not forcing a "perfect" posture. Do what your body is capable of and be fine with that for now. A good posture can be great, but it doesn't really matter at the end of the day.
  9. @dflores321 That's quite normal if your body is not used to longer durations. I recommend doing streches/yoga asanas before your meditation session. It does make a difference. Other than that, your body just needs some time to adjust to the meditation posture. I remember when I first tried the burmese position. It was hell and my legs were really sore after the session. Now, I can do 60 minutes and my legs are just fine after that.
  10. This book may have some answers to your questions:
  11. Don't get me wrong, I'm not under the impression that learning any software/technical skill will 100% get me a job. Knowing softwares by itself is useless. It's clear that the work you put out needs creativity, personal touch, knowledge about traditional art (just like you said) and anything that makes it stand out from the rest. Anybody can learn a software in a few months, that's not the difficult part, although I still think it's really important to learn it sooner than later because you obviously need platform to create in.
