Even though I often experience amazing bliss and peace, I still frequently stress out over various things great and not so great. Conclusion: When I’m enlightened it’s just an incredible experience, but it’s not as constant all the time as it seems like it will be when I’m in the throes of that bliss and oneness. It’s truly embarrassing to admit this, but the only way to finish the job is to practice humility and be truthful; conceit and dishonesty render us incapable of experiencing the Truth; also dangerous to those we would like to teach what we do actually know so far.
Also, a small smile can help me climb back up the chakras out of stress and into peace and awakening much faster than meditation. Why is it so difficult to remember this? And to meditate with a small smile on one’s face? Priceless.
Finally, a fellow meditator tonight told me the chakras are part of the endocrine system and related to regulation of the adrenal glands. I’ve not yet looked this up to verify it, but if it turns out to be true, it could at least help to explain why the adrenal gland comes under regulation by a meditator over time, and also why moving up out of the lower chakras also gets one out of that stressful state of anxiety.
Musings which follow that are: how closely are adrenaline and desire related, anyway? Also; no wonder when I’m below the third eye I feel so stressed! In fact it seems like just thinking of it this way could give a way to remember to let go of chakras below the crown and stop stressing myself, and move up out of the body. But, it all still needs more information to make sense of. What do others know about all this? Any good references?
Finally; so, if the endocrine-chakra relationship and also the close adrenal gland relationship are indeed true, then given there is no physical counterpart to area above the head, wonder what on earth is going on in that change from endocrine system to non-physical. Possibility the specifics of that change could involve useful information.
