Why aren’t you always uninhibited?

That’s the practice.

  1. The common definition of inhibition is “a feeling that makes one self-conscious and unable to act in a relaxed and natural way”.
    What “feeling” is it that makes one more aware of “self” (not Self)? The “separate self” (ahamkara in Vedic philosophy, meaning literally “to do I”) is the process of protecting a set of thoughts. The feeling associated with “protecting” is fear. When one is in a state of fear, the mind and body are active and alert to threats. Hence they are unable to act in a “relaxed and natural way”. The point of meditation (reference to your photo for this post) is to relax the body, relax the thinking process, and allow compassion (God) to arise in the stillness. A wise man once said “the less there is of you, the more there is of Love.”

  2. Oddly(?) enough, in reference to Paul but in answer to Rob: When I wrote this (and when I started practicing it a few weeks ago), I was thinking of the inhibition you feel when you’ve had a few too many drinks. Why don’t I feel that way all the time? Must be some tenacious ego level thing (nature/nurture/(chemical?)). Whatever, it’s a good practice IMO because you feel it. 🙂

  3. That is a fascinating twist on transparency Wayne. How does an an enlightened person react to intoxicants? Ram Dass reported that his guru took a large quantity of LSD and felt no effect. Are you saying you had a similar experience with alcohol?

    • Alcohol still affects me. I limit myself to two drinks because three easily leads to four which very easily leads to Too Many (the wise have their scars).

      LSD on the other hand no longer affects me. On the first time it didn’t affect me, I thought I had a bad batch, so two other times I took it with friends (same batch) and while it didn’t affect me, it definitely affected them.

  4. Wow Wayne…….that is soooooo fascinating for me right now 🙂 (i could jump of my chair!!)
    Why does alcohol affect the Body and LSD not after enlightenment?
    What could that mean?
