"Yes, it's possible to hallucinate from meditating. You simply relax the part of your mind that checks your perceptions against reality." - mungojelly

mungojelly on Awesome sleep! - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"I've read some suttas where it's listed as a benefit of metta meditation that you go to sleep easily and wake feeling rested. Also that it renders you immune to snake poison. :O I think that's only if you send metta to the four races of nagas or something, though. 8)" - mungojelly
mungojelly on Question about how to relate to your thoughts - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Thinking about it won't help much. Probably it's better just to focus on the panic as just a feeling of panic and feel it in your body. But anyway, to answer your questions, notice how you can *change* which sensations are considered part of your self? You can consider thoughts part of your self, and then you're responsible for them, or you can consider them *not* part of your self, and then they come to you from outside. Huh. This self concept seems as though it's the sort of thought that's a model of something, so you're trying to figure out how accurately it's modeling the whatever, and you can't figure out how to compare it. The thing is that there's nothing to model. There is no external self experienced through the senses, indeed that makes basically no sense. So it's just a model of something that doesn't exist, and which elements you choose to consider part of it are just arbitrary changes in a model with no referent." - mungojelly
mungojelly on What kind of meditation have I accidentally been doing? - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"People have various sensory experiences while becoming more concentrated. What experience you have depends in part on what experience you *expect* to have, so people from various traditions will explain to you how you're not *really* concentrated because you're not having the sensations they train themselves to have in their tradition. :) When you're becoming more concentrated you're relaxing or dropping or shutting off various aspects of your mind. Inside your perceptual system there's two different parts, a part I'll call the *theory-maker* that makes theories-- not verbal or conceptual theories but basic perceptual level theories-- about what perceptions you're likely to have, and another part I'll call the *theory-checker* whose job is to take those theories and check them against actual sense data and report back whether they're true. Let's explore this machinery by sending some questions from the theory-maker to the theory-checker and seeing what it feels like. Look at this text..." - mungojelly

"> So you do need to understand the hindrances as hindrances, particularly how each one of them act as a hindrance to what, do you not? If there's a hindrance in your way you generally need to understand it in order to remove it, unless it were to happen to be visible from outside so a teacher could instruct you how to remove it without you understanding what you're doing. :) > Is this itself not extremely hard? It depends on your circumstance. I was fortunate enough to be born in a house where the dhamma was available, in a country rich enough to have plenty of free time to study it, etc. It's very difficult for those without access to the dhamma, and nearly impossible for animals. I hear there are also celestial realms where it's quite easy. > Do you not think this understanding needs to develop starting from little and gradually grow? Generally. Some people do seem to pick it up very quickly though. Some people appear to reach enlightenment in their first week of sitting! Lucky..." - mungojelly

mungojelly on Losing my compassion(help) - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"To generate compassion, think of people you care about and imagine them feeling pain. Start with yourself, since (in some ways) you're who you care about most. Think about your own pain in the way that makes you feel compassionate towards yourself, that makes you feel like you wish for yourself not to suffer. Then try expanding to other people you care about. Extend particularly to people who feel the same pains as you do, and feel and accept your own pain completely on behalf of everyone who has that same sort of pain, wishing for all of them to be free from suffering just as you wish to be free yourself." - mungojelly
mungojelly on Abstinence vs Non Abstinence - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"> If there was a world with no sex, or no sexual attachment, it would not be more difficult or more easier to see your nature. I think it would be more difficult. Or to phrase the same thing differently and more like the suttas do, I think that a human birth is the very best birth you can hope for. Animals can't consider their situation at all. But in the realms above us, where it's so easy to be satisfied and to understand things, there is so little to dislike about life, so little reason to reconsider its pleasures. Here in this one little slice, where things are perfectly balanced, not a hell or heaven as usual but intimately complicated, I believe that this is one of the very few places where it's possible at all to escape the cycle of birth and death. Give thanks for samsara. There's only liberation into nirvana from samsara and not from anywhere else. There isn't liberation from nirvana into nirvana, that doesn't make sense. It's right here, this dirty sexy ugly mad world, this..." - mungojelly

But you're like a pinball machine, putting in a quarter can't make you do anything but provide me with another shiny ball. If there were a world with no sex, or with no sexual attachment, do you think it would be easier or more difficult to attain enlightenment from that world than from here?" - mungojelly
