Sanjeev, you wrote: "The goal of life and meditation is to identify our vices and eliminate them so that we could go closer to God ( located at infinity)."
Thank you. Finally I have an idea of what "meditation" can do, or is supposed to do. I always heard the "clear your mind / blank slate" which didn't do me any good. I think I can do it the way you describe.
You also wrote:
"The infinity in this metaphor represents all virtues ( 100% virtues) and we humans are combinations of virtues and vices. Our closeness to God is determined by the proportions of virtues and vices within ourselves. Demon represents "0" in this line"
Perfect sense. I can do this, too. And hope I don't get too many more "zeros" on my card.
Is this practice building a "creative temple" inside, as referred to in this post?
Good to know I don't have to "go to temple" as I prefer to do this quietly as well. I am very happy to find a connection with people who are striving for "spirituality," as seems to be here.
