I have started my meditation practice again. It has been a few years. I am hoping to get to a state of consciousness where I can reach God.

Ommm.

Your medication would get ya closer to god then ya meditation would wouldn't it?

I can't for a sec fathom meditation,  my minds a racer. But ummmmm, 
Hey jane?
Jane?
I suspect Atheists have trouble talking about hypnotizing i mean hypnosis.
I suspect atheists don't believe people can be hypnotized.
Then they think. Well maybe some people can be hypnotized.
Then they think . But i doubt i could be hypnotized .  

But good luck with your meditation. 

Tell us about the spot were you like to do this meditation.  So like i can give it a shot. 
Obviously a quiet spot , but is it good like 
In the middle of the bush in nature.
In your wardrobe.?
Good day.

Most Buddhist are atheist and have no issue practicing mediation. Idiot. And your sexual remarks are borderline assault.

It is a way to try to connect with God.

Cross ya legs over each other hold ya hands in a certain way and go om.

I swear i never meant  nothing else. 
I can be childish but  i wasn't like pretending i was using the word masterbating insted of meditation.
Thats effing  beyond childish. 

Sorry mopac that was directed at polly.

But were you aluding to this to mopac. 
And is meditation what i explained it to be..

Whatever works best is the way to go. I have done a few that paid off big time but if you aren't comfortable it will not work.

It is a way to try to connect with God.
The only way you could know that is if God told you himself, but if God told you already, then you've connected with God without using meditation.  Hence, you don't need meditation to connect with God. And of course, one shouldn't need it, one should be able to simply connect with God.

God's silence on this point is deafening.

Who told you that you need it? And, who told you that you can just make up your own meditation practice?

Who told you that mediation is a way to connect with God and why you need it?

Or, are you just guessing?

I still practice meditation techniques. I find they promote calm that has utility in many asspects of life.

I hope you find what you're looking for, jane.

What's your usual routine? I find I have to put on headphones and play some kind of steady repetitive noise to really lull myself into a more trancelike state, and then I can begin to meditate, because in complete silence it's a lot harder for me to pull it off. But I'm a beginner.

It's not important. I have found that you don't need meditation. All you need is sincerity in your heart.

With all due respect, I think you're [really] too big to behave like a child.

Consider being in one's shoes at least for a moment, you will find that everyone has different motivations and point of views.
