In 2012 when I was 22 I started seriously meditating. The same year, I found instructions for meditation by Leigh Brasington, another by Ayya Khema, and later on an unknown text which I later found to be written by Ajahn Brahm.
I quickly found the breath to become pleasurable, which would then disappear along with the body, I would become very quiet and peaceful and feel 'above' myself, I would occasionally see lights, but I would get excited and go back down to a peaceful breathless state where thoughts would almost be 0.
I then found Ajahn Brahms technique, I got the lights again but this time they were stable and powerful. I would get extremely (and I mean very extremely) excited as the bliss would feel explosive after certain stages. I would ignore the bliss and the lights, I would label them as 'not mine' and keep /be able to keep a calm mind after 3-4 meditation sessions.
After mastering the calmness, I once got to the lights again, I ignored it and the bliss, and then a light come up again, except this time it was 100 times brighter than the sun, it was enveloping me and taking me in, it was more powerful and blissful but at the same time peaceful than anything I can explain.
It was a light that I can only describe as an atomic bomb of peace. It was literally as if an atomic bomb of powerful stillness had gone off in front of me, and I had a choice...
Either let the light take me, but I must leave myself behind completely, let myself or who I thought at that time I was, to completely die....or end the meditation here. I was given the choice to either go into the light and surrender complete control, or end it and go back.
I had never ventured this far before, and I believed I would have access to these states whenever I wanted, so I ended it. I went back into a lighter state and sat in a great stillness.
Soon after (days passed), I went to meditate again. I put my heart into it. I was 'given' a standard stillness of meditation where the breath becomes beautiful. Once the beauty left, and I rested in the stillness for a while, I like always decided after maybe 20 minutes to end the meditation.
As I was coming out, I had what can only be called, a glimpse of 'nothing not even nothing, gone but not just gone....but gone gone'. Absolute unconditioned nothingness, where there is not even nothing. I later googled this as best as I could, and the description that best describes this was a cessation experience, or 'a glimpse of Nibbana'.

nirvana center raised prices basically making every smokable eighth they have around $50-$55 their new menu prices are insane even if they already included tax ... 🥱
EDIT: just for comparison with the PP half coming out to 206 otd you’re literally paying 15 a gram all the way up for a half of popcorn sized nugs smaller then a dime or nickel... 15 a gram for smalls.
Samsara is not the slightest bit different from nirvana. Nirvana is not the slightest bit different from samsara.
The true nature of nirvana Is the true nature of samsara, And between these two There is not even the tiniest, subtlest difference.
The business model is basically a reaction to the current market conditions of DeFi.
Everyone is striving to come up with the next great, big ground shaking idea. But no one has actually tried to make any of the already incredible ideas that have been created work together in a cohesive and rapidly evolving ecosystem.
The team has seen some unbelievable concepts pop up in the last 11 months or so. Yield farming. Rebasing. Frictionless yield. Vaults.
What if they all worked together, within an ecosystem you can trust?
That's what Nirvana really is. A better DeFi. A trustworthy DeFi. Whether you’re a swing trader or a long term investor, when you buy a token from the Vana ecosystem, you know it will do exactly what it is said to do, and you know the team behind it has only pure and forward-thinking motivations.
The tokens will appeal to the communities of other tokens while constantly adding value to our ecosystem. They already have several partnerships and integrations in the works, with their team being as excited to move forward with them.
Investors in the ecosystem will be able to garner exposure across other crypto markets simply by holding our tokens. The team is combining concept and demand and diversification.
It’s a one stop shop. And Vana is your key to it.

How does $VANA work?!
There is a 6% tax on all transactions.
3% is sent to each $VANA holder, proportional to their holdings.
3% is locked permanently as liquidity.
Influencers are also lined up to start marketing it. This is a real Uniswap hidden gem.

Im not sure whos quote this is but its a really nice quote :)
Quick back story/info on me (@voliswell) is that I’m focused on quantitative-based market structure trading (and maybe some macro-overlays kinda…sorta…when they make sense...which they don’t right now). I’m also involved in software development. I’ve built and sold a couple SaaS companies and I’m now building another one (while also operating a prop trading shop). My prop shop started building apps for our own use in 2017. Those apps have since morphed into vigtec.io, which is an ecosystem of market indicators, options tools, live charts, prebuilt algos, etc. constructed to help you find your market edge and squeeze the juice from the market (we have a web and mobile version on iOS now that are beta). We use it ourselves every day and now other people can use it to as there is a free version for everyone. We’re actively working on it day in and day out as its still a work in progress and hope that we continue to get user feedback and it’s able to keep growing at the rate it has been. We’re ultimately getting to the place now where we’re allowing other people to build on top of the platform itself and make their own indicators and tools etc. to share with others to use. But enough about that, let me get to the point of this post.
We have a general thesis (and its A ‘THESIS’) about the current market structure and volatility dynamics that started in 2017. This thesis is that there are now only 2 regime cycles existent in the market that ping pong with back and forth with massive consequence:
I’ll seek to address them here as a what/so what layout below.
What: Equity Nirvana Cycle
These are prolonged periods of what feels like a constant “skullduggery-like” buy-side bid market structure action (bottom left to top right in charts) that have no price auction back and forth between buyers and sellers to discover fair value level by level in the market. These periods are hallmarked by suppressed volatility and non-existent selling action in equities that occur because of a combination (or all of) the following:
Been a Nirvana fan since the pandemic, love all their songs to my heart. But tbh there is something special when they do Leadbelly covers, "Where did you sleep last night" "They hung him on the cross" etc...
Are there other such lost tracks ( sad slow blues ) by them?
