So I’ve been practicing a form of empty-mind meditation, based off of void meditation. I recently hit a wall in my practice of it, not due to inability, but because it’s the last logical step before you attain the mantle of Dreamer.
When I describe the Dreamer, I am explaining a state of being where you are tantamount to a demigod. There is a concept that reality is a dream of a sleeping god, and that we are part of that dream. What my meditation is leading to is becoming the Dreamer and essentially reaching a state where reality is a lucid dream. This state is basically the end-goal of hermeticism and other high-mental-spirit paths of practice.
The meditation itself is to focus on the void between thoughts until your mind is completely vacant, at which point you let go of the focus and drift in the void from which all thought springs from. I call this state the Primordial.
The wall I have been hitting is that once you are in the Primordial, the next logical step isn’t deeper. The step is actually adjacent. The issue is that I am having an issue reconciling that adjacent step in a void that preempts thought and reality. I do know that becoming the Dreamer is the next step but I am not yet sure how to take the step.
Regardless, entering the Primordial is a great thing to do if you are trying to change yourself; if you create a sigil for the change to yourself that you want to cause, you meditate on the sigil all the way down to the depths of the mind until you enter the Primordial. From that point, the sigil will be at its deepest internal level and able to enact its changes on a fundamental level. Entering the Primordial also will greatly increase your mental ability and the power you can bring to bear, while also putting everything into perspective.
Regardless of what you do with this, whether you seek self-improvement or to become the Dreamer, I hope this will help you out in some way.
