    1. Thank you, my dear SoundEagle,
      for your compassionate comment.

      Since you mention it:
      Even though I came really close to some interesting visions,
      at the moment the quest with enlightenment seems to have come to a temporary halt,
      * because I first have to stabilise my body to be able to keep up with a much slower breath,
      * there came up some doubts and questions about my practice and the lineage of it,
      * and additionally I sense that there are some residual worldly desires (of unfulfilled accomplishments) which seem to be resoved before I toally can let go of the mundane in order to dedicate myself to the divine with all my heart.

      Whilst this is a seeming setback I do hope that this is a cleansing phase to properly resolve subconscious entanglements.
      I actually have seen some on the path who also manage to do the meditation as dedicated as I did,
      and was shocked to see a form of cold arrogance in them, feeling ‘higher’ than the res of us.
      So I am grateful that I can see the temptation in the game, when evolving to indulge in ones charisma.

      This is, what I think did happen to Jesus on his 40 day retreat in the desert:
      He evolved so high that he then was tempted to be able to gain large worldly realms,
      but managed to resist that temptation.

      You have a good heart and I feel that in all the many pains you certainly experience,
      there lie many wisdoms you will gain in this life in order to prepare you for a holistic and humble ascension.
      May the longterm-bliss be with you, my dear friend !

      1. Dear Thilo,

        I am very much delighted and reassured by your ability to discern the many temptations and arrogance out there,
        even in those who are purportedly kind, spiritual and benevolent.

        The ability to doubt and step back will stand you in good stead
        regardless of your path or stage towards enlightenment.

        (Re)examinations and (re)evaluations of one’s life, goals and activities are and should be ongoing,
        even when we (seemingly) feel most at ease about a state or situation,
        as there could still be some hidden oversight and cost.

        1. Wow, Soundeagle, thank you for your wise words, You don’t know how much they mean to me in a time of internal despair !

          You nailed the issue very much, which only very few people see in life, and I am very grateful for another soul confirming that my quest is ongoing.

          In a nutshell it seems to boil down to a transformation from magical-religious thinking to mysticism (which is similar to the self-realisation described in Advaita Vedanta)

          You are a friend and spiritual ally to me!

          1. Dear Thilo,

            Soul-searching has always been one of the essential cornerstones of refined humanity and spirituality. In overcoming despair and stagnation (let alone degeneracy) and acquiring new insight, epiphany and wisdom, we are reborn onto more solid spiritual grounds able to contemplate and experience high planes of existence and deeper consciousness.

            Writing, journaling and/or (re)searching (whether cognitively, verbally, textually or multimodally) can be very helpful in capturing one’s moments or intents. As for me, I have learnt a great deal about myself from working on my websites and composing very detailed and erudite contents for them. Some folks have told me that they do not understand or know much about me. In some cases, some of them have even become mocking, hostile and/or dismissive. If they have bothered to visit my website(s) and take a really good look, then they will find out so much about me, and also quite a lot about themselves through their response to and understanding of my posts and pages at my website(s).

            1. Yes, this is also my experience with writing: So far, as for you, most of the people around me deem me to be some strange eccentric, so my initial hobby-blogwork seems to have transformed into me at the moment reconstructing the website to reflect my own personality with all aspects, by turning it into a virtual house with rooms for themes of my life. My experience is that least of the people close to me even bother to read my blog, but that we do find friends and like minded people in remote corners of the world through our blogs.

              As for the wisdoms we acquire and convey to each other, I think that all our ways of doing that is to shed light on the billions of possible ways of ‘detanglement’ of our misconceptions. This is probably why old wisdoms always are brought to us in form of new books, songs or websites. Keep doing what you are doing – you seem to have quite an impact on the world, even if you probably did or do not get the big reward a person with your caliber could reap if featured by a promoter.

              I guess we have to detach external successes or seeming failures from the eternal internal one.

              1. I concur with you. Yes, the best and most dedicated amongst the likes of us are also inveterate teachers of everlasting, transcendental wisdom to save humans from themselves, their self-interests and their destructive ways. I often even have to coin new words to do so. The latest example is my neologism “Viral Falsity“, which you can see in my extensive and analytical post entitled “💬 Misquotation Pandemic and Disinformation Polemic: 🧠 Mind Pollution by Viral Falsity 🦠“, which has twelve major sections instantly accessible from a navigational menu.

                The last section named “Denouement: Democracy, Education, Legislation & Sustainability” even gives a very dire warning of what humanity is heading towards if there is still no concerted, meaningful and large-scale change for the better.

              2. Dear Thilo,

                Since the video that you featured contains the calming music and also the sunset over the sea, I would like to share with you my own composition entitled “The Sunset Lingers On“, which comes in two parts:

                They may be used for your meditations or spiritual contemplations.

                1. Before I have to go to sleep I want to say: Amazing article and music, Soundeagle !
                  (Just a little idea of mine: When I was working in a webdesign-firm someone explained to me that more people are inclined to read stuff it is presented to them in small digestable forms, so maybe split up your long articles into a few sections, pages, or better even, smaller ones; and in the end you might get even more readers.)

                    1. Yes, thank you so much for your thorough and exensive reply, soundeagle!
                      Now because I was not certain whether you meant that you did change your reply I did refresh your site and could not find a difference which is good for me,
                      because I actually did save your comment there which did arrive in form of a mail into my special folder of valuable informations for me to read at a later stage once more.

                      You certainly are an intellectual multi-talent with also a good heart – (something which is not seen to often).

  1. Dear Thilo,

    Seeing that you have a great affinity with unflinching morality, uprightness and transcendence, I would like to inform you that yesterday, I have completed putting together some texts, illustrations and animations. You can see them in my post entitled “💨 Strong Wind Knows Tough Grass 🌾 疾風知勁草” published at https://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2020/11/11/strong-wind-knows-tough-grass/

    May this post bring you some thoughts and inspiration. In addition, I have composed lots of short, rhyming and illustrated poems in this post, including one in the body of the post and many in my replies to my readers’ comments.

    Perhaps what will intrigue you even more is my extensive attempt at explaining and translating a particular poem being featured in the said post.

    1. Thank you for your valuable recommendation, Soundeagle, which I do recommend anyone who reads this page to also look into.
      I read it and did comment on it, and because I have a question which since a long time does fill my heart, I want to paste in here the second half of my comment I did post below your article:

      I have one question for you, being a Chinese, personally, only you may resolve:
      Since I did study traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and sources like the Nei Jing and Nan Jing are known,
      have you ever seen any sources about the real very beginnings of TCM ?

      I ask because I briefly read somewhere that the entire TCM is actually based on dreams and insights from higher beings who did convey the wisdom of Yin & Yang and meridians to humans in China.

      This would be really interesting, because me, being a Westerner did research a lot into Yoga and after reading the Mahabarata having found out that the sources of yoga themselves are somehow doubious,
      so it starts to dawn upon me that all human wisdoms do seem to have a kind of ‘bottleneck’ to them in form of some unexplicaple roots,
      just as all religions, when looking closer into them, seem to have.

      This could be a research-project for you and I don’t expect that to be resolved quickly.

  2. You don’t need to put in the line-breaks because the WordPress Reader only appears to be stripping them out. If you were to resfresh the WordPress Reader, or actually visit the post in situ, you will see that all of the line-breaks are still there.

    1. Your advice about line-breaks is interesting and valid and I never saw it your way literally, because I only read posts in the browser and emails which show me line-breaks. Normally I also don’t especially go out of my way to edit other people’s comments for that, but since I did correct a mis-spelling of yours anyway, I took the opportunity to add a few linebreaks for the browser visitors. >
