I practice yoga and Vipassana's meditation now.
I taught Tai Chi Chuan for a short while, I liked that.
I'm learning ballet dance now, I love it.

Dear Sahar, I am a real amateur when it comes to meditation. My mind seems to continue to jump from "this to that". What is left of ones mind when everything in it is swept away; all thought, all likes, all dislikes, all words and definitions, all feelings about life, etc. What would be left is no-thing. If we look around the world with this kind of mind, we will see no-thing and this I believe is Allah or God. Meditation to me is seeing no-thing in the world, or sweeping out of everything in our mind: to see the world without a filter of words and thoughts. I try to do this but can only accomplish it for very short periods of time (seconds). This is great talking to you. I really enjoy it. I have no-one here to discuss these things with. Have a super day. Jim
Dear Sahar, I started "Snow in the Summer" last night. The first thing I noticed was the author was not talking or writing to us - but having a conversation with us. Like he was siting across the table from us and just talking to us; free and easy - not trying to prove a point but just telling us his opinion. Another thing I noticed was that he was writing about My Physiologically biography. Inside, he and I am the same, maybe this is what attracted this book to you. I wonder if all seekers feel this way physiologically. I just started Chapter 1 on mindfulness and am enjoying the book immensely. Have a super day. Jim
Dear Sahar, Thanks for the reply. I really appreciate you messaging to me. I finally found "snow in the summer". Amazon did not have it, so I "googled" it and found it in PDF format and down loaded it, put it on my kindle and I will now be able to talk with you about it. I am really looking forward to readying it. It is like going on an adventure; reading a book that someone (you) are extremely excited about. My meditation seems extremely natural to me - I try not to see any distinctions between anything. In other words I see, hear, and feel no-thing. Does this make any sense to you; because at times it doesn't make any to me. Have a super day. Jim
سلام سحر جون
مرسی از اینکه بهم کتاب پیشنهاد میکنی
راستش من the path to holistic health رو ندارم اما میخوام سفارش بدم اگر بشه.
یه کتاب دیگه هم هست که برام جالب بود اونم Iyengar Yoga for Motherhood . اگر یوگا رو تدریس میکنی برای خانمهای باردار تمرینات عالی داره و کتاب خیلی مفیدیه.
شاد باشی دوستم
Thank you for replying to my note. Your English is wonderful. I need to tell you a little of my spiritual background. I came across a web site called "The Zoo Fence" which had a web page http://www.zoofence.com/cons13.html I read and meditated about this web page and its meaning for a long time. I felt I was forced to step off the cliff into the world of non-duality. This happened about 10 years ago and have been on "my path" since. I have read Krishnamurti's "You Are The World", "Reflections on the Self", and "This Light in Oneself" (which I am re-reading now). Have a super day. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks again.
Freedom from the Known (1975) by J. Krishnamurti was the first of Krishnamurti's books I read. It opened my eyes and heart to all the "junk" that society puts in our heads and hearts. I have not been the same since I read the book. I am know reading some books by Alan Watts which is Taoist and Zen influenced. Freedom is an attitude. Have a super day.
