there once was a time in my life that i felt very connected to myself, my inner being, my soul... it seems however as though i reached a certain point, and that connection has been disintegrating ever since. When i was at this point it wasn't necessarily through religion, or through God, but more though myself, my heart. I dont know what happened to make this wonderful connectedness go away, but i want to find it once again, if possible. does anyone know any "exercises" of sorts to connect with the soul? I realize meditation helps, but i'm not sure i know how to really meditate... I've found much comfort in listening to a recording i have of a native american flute (hard to describe, but very comforting), but thats about it... any suggestions for channeling the inner being?
