I do this a lot and it works. It feels like meditation. I also focus on a specific object to play with (e.g., a button), which is soothing.

Does this thread really start with "stab your eyes out" as it's number one tip-bit? Really?! That's a bit class if you don't mind me saying hehe.

I watch a single object and gradually my eyes turn off focus and I drift into a wonderful relaxing state very versatile when used in contrast with meditation or yoga I find lol.

Yeah, then this nice relaxing state suddenly turns into a scary feeling of going blind, and you have to snap out of it...ha!

Or you could try "Oedipus"-style

If neurotic is wanting two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I'm neurotic as hell. I'll be flying back and forth between one mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my days.
