99 percent of people will never get into a meditative state even once in their life. This makes me feel great sorrow, but also understanding. Sorrow, because so many will never experience the infinite depth that meditation brings into our lives. Understanding because the meditative path must call to a person. Dealing with the chaos of the mind can be one of the most difficult things we will ever do. But it is also one of the most rewarding things we will ever do, as well.

Alright, it's just time I posted this. I completed this over a year ago, but I wanted to write a big blog about meditation, before I posted it. Meditation has had a HUGE impact on my life, and pretty much is the main reason I'm even alive today. I want to write about how amazing meditation is, but I just don't know if I've quite reached the point in my life where I'm ready to do so. I think people would be way better off reading Eckhart Tolle, Ken Willber and Genpo Roshi, just to name a few.

I'm still working on getting a bunch resources together and writing some awesome blogs though. Hopefully soon.

Love your work here! I used it as my inspiration for AIM-2017. You can hear the song based on this art on my page. Thanks for the inspiration!

I have to say, ive looked over your artwork, and i am extremely impressed. not only with your art (which is amazing in its own right) but with the insight you provide to your spiritual (and existential) beliefs through your art. you officially now have a fan, 5/5, and great work!

Nondual responds:

Thanks Desl0st, it means a lot.

This is awesome!

This is a very profound and thought provoking art piece. I have just discovered the law of attraction which has led me to begin practicing meditation. Though I have not yet achieved a very deep metaphysical state, I am beginning to open my mind more to the complexity of the infinite energy of the universe. Keep it up!

Nondual responds:

Very awesome Xombie. Yeah the law of attraction is good stuff, I've definitely seen it's effect in my own life. Something that I don't know is stressed enough when people talk about it though is the action part. People need to take action. Just sitting around thinking positive thoughts is great, but we need to be doing everything we can.

That's also really cool you've started meditating. Meditation completely turned my life around about 10 years ago. And I've been practicing daily since. Youtube has some great videos on meditation. Just do a search for it. Eckhart Tolle and the Profound Mediation Program are some of my favorites.

If you (or anyone else who happens to read this) has any questions on meditation, and would like to get a bunch of info. Feel free to send me a message. I love talking about it.


does a very nice job on the artwork.
while i have never reached a meditative state i can begin to understand with this picture.
great work

Nondual responds:

Very cool, I'm glad you like it. That's awesome this helps you "begin to understand meditation," because that is the very purpose of this piece.


Very cool. Meditation has had a big impact on my life. Through it I found myself, the one that sees and knows, and came to several conclusions of my own. Check this out: http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/danomano65/legit-human I am sure you will appreciate it.

Nondual responds:

Very, very cool man. It's awesome to come across other mediators, there aren't a lot of us out there. I did check out your piece "Legit Human" as well and I'm really digging it. I'll have to really look, and think deeply about it so I can leave a good review.

Something you might like looking at is the term "Nondual" (my username) on Wikpedia. Although, the page is always getting changed, because people are tying to explain a concept that points to "that which is beyond concepts," and this creates a lot of confusion.

Thanks for the great review, I'm glad you like my work. I'm definitely going to have to keep an eye on the stuff you're doing as well. I think you have a bunch of great art, keep up the good work!
