Meditation Is the Best High Ever

When you allow yourself to sit quietly and just "be," you can experience a feeling that goes beyond a state of mind you're used to.

"You don't need a special place to meditate. You can transcend anywhere in the world. The unified field is here, and there, and everywhere." -- David Lynch

I'm all for taking it higher. The natural way, that is. Feeling uplifted, elated, ecstatic, exalted, or simply giddy with joy is something each and every one of us can feel anytime, anywhere.

How, you might ask? Meditation. When you allow yourself to sit quietly and just "be," you can experience a feeling that goes beyond a state of mind you're used to. It can feel boundless or limitless, and can best be described as transcendent, which means you're going (according to the Oxford Dictionary) "beyond or above the range of normal or merely physical human experience."

Now that's the kind of high I'm talking about, and it's about as natural as it gets. And here's the best part -- it's completely harmless to your health, doesn't cost a thing, not addicting, and can't kill you.

Who wouldn't want to try some of that? You can do it in the privacy of your home with no one watching, no clean up after, no withdrawal whatsoever, and no one's going to worry about whether you're okay or not. As a matter of fact, they're probably going to want some of what you're having, so be prepared for them to want to get high, I mean "transcend" with you.

Meditation can get you high off of you just "being you." Imagine getting buzzed off of an energy field that is so powerful, it takes nothing more than you dropping into yourself to experience it.

Here's all you have to do:

1. Sit quietly.
2. Close your eyes.
3. Focus on your breath in and out.
4. Allow yourself to "be" with acceptance.

That's it!

Don't judge. Just be you.

Get high on yourself. You might not want to come down.
