I learned with a chinese master in the subject. You breathe in imagining you are part of the air. Logically i mean. There’s nothing mistic about chinese meditation. Unlike people in Tibet and India that relates it with religion people in China uses meditation as a medicine. So again you breathe and imagine you are the air that gets in your nose and you imagine the path the air takes to the botton of the belly. So you imagine this circuit. Nose to belly and belly to nose. But you also have to count. So it goes like this: breathe in, breathe out count 1,  breathe in, breathe out count 2,  breathe in, breathe out count 3 and so on until you get to 10. Then you start again. You do it during 20 mins. You also should be sitting of the floor with your legs crossed in the known lotus position. If the floor is cold you can sit of a rug of anything actually. Then you can use a pillow to sit on. Your eyes have to be half open otherwise you can get sleepy and you mouth half opened. The eyes should be faced towards a white wall or something very neutral and there should be no noise or at least the least amount of it. Why do i do it? It’s the only thing that calms me besides Xanax. It’s the only way i get to sleep. If you do it right it’s a trip bigger than any LSD can give you. The idea behind it is to quiet your mind. By doing this routine you don’t have to think about not thinking which is impossible. You just change all your thoughts to just the way the air makes in your body and the counting from one to ten. It doesn’t seam much so it’s kinda annoying when you begin. Looks like you are doing nothing but suddenly you get it. Your brain starts to clear and you starts feeling really great. It’s a kinda hard feeling to describe but it is so unexpected that usually the first time you feel that’s enough to make you start thinking again and ruin the exercise. What do you gain? Focus. Samurais did it not to relax but to be better in their fights. More precise. Clear mind. After a lot of crap in a bad day it’s the only think that can put your mind at ease. Control. You start getting better control of your mind when in stress and that can be really healthy. I did my part. Now try to do it!

The act of creating from nothing is known to be exclusive to God. He created the universe and everything in it including us from nothing “creatio ex nihilo“. So if creation is divine why do we call our creations that way. When man created the chair he didn’t worked from nothing. He worked from wood and the need to seat a person. When LSD was created it was the mix of chemicals with the desire to trip without the need to leave the couch. But i believe there’s always something divine about creation and you can hit a certain level of it. That’s why some creations that lack this quality are obvious. Some are better. They are inventive. Some are amazing, almost magical. You really can’t tell where did the creator got the idea from. Even so it does come from things. A painter needs paints, a poet needs pen, a musician needs the instrument. They do it for many needs and reasons. But there are some that are so intense you can feel there’s something else going on in there. When you see a Van Gogh or a Beethoven symphony and you connect with that kind of art if you really follow the creation to it’s full intensity you can forget those are instruments and people singing. You can forget you are looking at paint in a canvas. Those can make you travel closer to the moment of their creation and that’s a whisper from the divine. It doesn’t matter the creed or the god. That’s the beauty of it. You can sense the divine in it. It’s like a little window that was opened briefly. You noticed for sure but you can’t point to it. There’s a bit of devine in all of us because we are part of creation. We are sons of creation. The deep wonderful mystery is how does that happen. What happened in the head and hands of the composer in that moment. Maybe even he doesn’t know. Maybe he thinks it was him self and it was! But that’s the ego’s perspective. Maybe he doesn’t think at all. Some creators were drunk or high or sick when they created many of these masterpieces. Beethoven coudn’t  even hear when he composed the ninth symphony and that’s one of the pieces of art that makes me travel closer to the creation of it. At least that’s my perception. Not that i got close to the deaf and drunk Beethoven at a particular night looking to the streets being himself but i feel like i got closer to the moment. To the spark that collided at a specific moment where the process of this creation took form from nothing and then into a medium which is music. That’s the closer i can get to God.
