Re: Meditation is not a scheduled activity you do for benefits

If blank state is an object then being aware Meditation can offer you a glimpse of thoughtless state. But that lasts only a few seconds. I will say this. Meditation is not about being without thought, it's about not being identified with thought. Both states of thought and no thought are observed. N...

Become more interested in that which is aware of your anxiety than your anxiety itself. At the very root of your anxiety is peace and happiness.
Rupert spira says that. But how does that alleviate suffering? I often ask myself "am i aware?" Answer: yes. So what.

Re: Who am i? Why can't i be a ever changing entity?

I haven't thoroughly read every post here so I'm going to just jump in. I have 2 questions for you. 1. Are you aware? & This one you don't have to answer. 2. Where do you go to answer the first question? Realizing that awareness is timeless and always peaceful is reached by going there...through se...

Re: Who am i? Why can't i be a ever changing entity?

Can anyone prove that consciousness is not the function/feature of the brain? No, but it is everyone's direct experience (if they really care to investigate and discover that it is in fact their direct experience) that the brain is a function/feature of Awareness/Consciousness, rather than the othe...

Re: Who am i? Why can't i be a ever changing entity?

We are born in this world as mind and body. If we neglect our mind and body under the pretext of some magical real 'I' then we are just fooling ourselves. The famous quote from the movie The Departed spoken by captain queenen (played by Martin sheen) comes to mind "We deal in deception here what we ...

The stars, the planets, the sun, the moon, the trees, the animals. They all exist and so there has to be an awareness which allows them to exist.
I don't understand what you mean by this.

Re: Who am i? Why can't i be a ever changing entity?

Sorry my comment should have read : America existed long before but it was ever known. It was known only after it was discovered.

Are you suggesting that for something to exist it must be first known?

Re: Who am i? Why can't i be a ever changing entity?

Exactly! If something exists, there has to be an awareness, consciousness or knowing of its exixstence. Not by Columbus or any other being--but by the virtue of the simple fact that it exists. This is a subtle concept--but its the foundation for understanding your true nature. America existed long ...

Re: Who am i? Why can't i be a ever changing entity?

That is, if anything exists, then there has to be a knowledge of it. Even if nothing exists, that nothing has to be revealed (or known to exist as nothing), correct? America was not known before it was discovered by columbus but it existed even before it was discovered. So did several planets, cons...
