How long do you meditate for each day?

Yes, this is a "dick-measuring contest". I don't care. 

Let's start with myself. 2 hours.

Your turn!

Usually 48 minutes 3x a day, sometimes 4x if I have more energy.

I try to mediate through the day and sit formally when I can for 30 minutes, 1 or 2 times per day.

The most helpful thing for getting better at concentrating is to keep coming back to the mediation object ALL DAY between your tasks. Try to get to the point where you are not forgetting to check in to your mediation object for more than a few minutes. At the beginning it will be a matter of hours or many minutes but eventually you can train the mind to remember to check in. Do this over and over and your meditation will improve quickly. Then it becomes effortless until big feelings arise and after they resolve you can go back to checking in.

Note that the ability to mediate well will often come in go in waves as past memories and conditions arise as a feeling of tension and anxiety that distracts your meditation. Be gentle during this period and allow the feelings to resolve themselves. Just watch them and accept them fully. Once they are resolved, which may be hours or weeks or months even, go back to the object and start again. It is a long and non-linear process. Rinse and repeat...

@Enlightenment how many years?

10-30 minutes a day, and I meditate when doing housework because it's mindless.

30 minutes everyday and during the day I try to be the more aware that I can, focusing on awareness as much as I can.

The Matrix is everywhere, it is all around us, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

@Enlightenment i know from your posts you have done pyschedelics but what about 5-Meo?  It should not take more than a year naturally.  That also depends on life experience so it's relative of course but after 3 yrs i would look at that if i had access to it.

Same. All of my growth has been the process of integrating an experience two years ago. Awareness alone will take you far.

@Inliytened1 I've done 5-MeO but only mid-level doses so I didn't breakthrough. Only legitimate breakthrough I've had was on a high dose of DPT. Other than that I've tried 1p-LSD, 2-cb, MDMA and one weird unknown psychedelic. Currently, I'm waiting to get off of Venlafaxine to try higher doses of 5-MeO.

What do you mean?

Everything is an assumption.
