Meditation and Yoga are like Yin and Yang, male and female, good and evil, life and death, a part of our dual two-United world. They complement and contradict each other.
Meditation: Vypassana - The art to live and die
Vypassana is a Buddhist meditation technique wich one can help us to observe our mind and thus to control our thoughts. With the help of our breath you learn to return to your inner peace. Two and a half days in silence, in the full awareness of your own strengths, self-healing, with no saint, Buddha, prostration, no prayers, no peek into hell, no Holy Father and not a holy chair, not a prophet, not the Son of God, no, no. You are responsible for your life. Self-awareness!
"Who has courage to embark on the challenge of AWARE to live, not to say, either continuously, not continuous with the head somewhere else than with his body, which will first of all have to open a Pandoraʻs box. Because he will find that he. Never, we say almost never, is available with both parts He lives unconsciously separated, divided, half-heartedly. Who can stand the truth will eventually whisper quiet that it really maybe three or four minutes of 16 daily waking hours there.
(From "If you meet Buddha, kill him" by Andrew Altman)
