Re: To anyone lost, read this, my life from 40yrs of being lost to now!

What a great post, tchest77. There was much I could relate to. I remember when I was quite young feeling that same connection to everything around me, always simply being present. The shift away from that came when I was in 2nd grade and my mother became quite ill and I became consumed with worry. E...

Roger Castillo - Being Lived

I just came across this teacher today and find he does a solid job of explaining some important concepts about the mind. He subcategorizes it into the thinking mind and the working mind and how one of these is responsible for the suffering people experience. He explains the goal is not to try to sto...

Re: Letting go of Spiritual Practice

That is an important insight, so good for you. What you are is simplicity itself, so any effort to bring about simplicity is counterproductive because effort is an overlay of 'complexity' within the mind. It doesn't take effort to be what you already are, which is beyond mental activity. Effort/prac...

Re: A Meditation and Realization Journal

Welcome to the forum, LoveRei. Getting in touch with stillness will open the door to insight, then eventually you become your own best teacher. Or more accurately, stillness leads you to greater depths of clarity that penetrate and realign thinking and how life is experienced. As that depth is gaine...

Re: Time. The Present is a "Psychological Illusion" says Harvard Psychologist

First of all, when you say 'the present', yes, you are implying a past and future, but these are concepts that exist solely in the mind. In reality there is no 'the present', so he's right about that...time is a concept. But there IS something beyond the conceptual, presence . Presence is eternally ...

Re: I refuse to surrender to what is. Isn't it giving up?

Welcome to the forum, addman16. Change what you can (which is what you want to do). There's certainly nothing wrong with that. Situations that arise that are impossible to change one must accept, otherwise you will suffer. Suffering is in the mind only, so acceptance is a way around suffering. Lonel...

Re: Auditory hallucinations?

Perhaps 35 years ago at the age of 33 I had an experience I'd never had before nor since. It happened to be the night of my birthday, and while lying in bed and reflecting on my life to that point an audible male voice said very clearly and lovingly inside my mind, "Don't you know I'll love you no m...

Re: Methods for deepening practice

I have a hard time keeping two things going at once, i.e. staying with my breath and thinking about a problem or communicating with someone. Don't overcomplicate things - trying to stay with the breath while thinking about a problem or communicating with someone is just that. When thinking is neces...

Re: Question about Echart's teachings

So here is my question, When people read or hear Mr. Tolle say that they should disidentify with their thoughts/mind, do they interpret this literally and resultantly not acknowledge a pattern of mind that needs to be dealt with, or do they disidentify to an extent, in a way, where they no longer g...

Re: Singer songwriter with a twist!

Welcome to the community, DRC. First, I would like to congratulate you on what appears to me to be a profound spiritual awakening - your backstory has classic experiences denoting that, and I can relate to your descriptions quite easily, especially how you describe the silence and stillness despite ...
