I am with you on new age practices that do not change the heart into a kinder version of its former self. My NDE changed me from a sociopath to a compassionate human being but even in my changed state of consciousness, I still have days when I fail to live up to the highest hope for myself.
I do my own version of meditation but I appreciate sacred other practices. Is there anything from your meditation that stands out as different from most other practices?
I combine Hu'ing, smudging sage, astral projection, prayer, peaceful countenance... singing ha-leigh-lu-y-h... and a type of triangulation between myself and The Light but often I make it up as I go along... I am would open to adding another piece to my own. I am still here so I must need to learn something.
