Re: One day you're up, one day you're down

This is very common, so I wouldn't worry about it. Cycling in and out will likely continue for some time because mind/ego is very adept at triggering slides back into ego identification. Gradually you will experience longer periods of clarity with fewer intrusions of mind. Learn to identify the uniq...

Re: Body awareness

Being confused of what ET or RM say leads obviously to more confusion. Right. Confusion only exists in the mind. When you are confused you've lost touch with presence, which is always here because what you are is presence itself. Confusion means attention has been directed toward the mind/thinking....

Re: Body awareness

Well, let me just ask this: What is the result of getting confused about what ET is saying, or for that matter, what anyone else has to say? What is the important thing here, how someone views this matter or actually being present? Minds seeks answers, that's its nature; ego wants to be right, that'...

Re: Body awareness

I don’t recall ET saying or writing that. He has used the sense of aliveness and the inner body as ‘portals’ to presence, to direct attention away from the mind and its noisiness.

Re: Meditating More Than Once A Day

In my opinion "capturing the silence" doesn't quite ring true. It implies an effort to get something elusive that isn't already here and by extension hanging onto it as long as possible until it eventually 'escapes' its captor. But, silence is always present because it is your very nature . No captu...

Well done. Hopefully, your post will be helpful to someone else. Each of us eventually discovers what works best for us. There is no one universal approach that is best for everyone, so having a variety of things to check out and sample is a good idea. I appreciate your contribution.

Re: not the same presence as at first

Ego can't simulate presence; no thought can. What ego will do, however, is convince itself it is the one in control of your life and the author of thoughts. It will take credit for everything and even claim 'I am present' with the emphasis on the 'I' as a separate entity. That's the delusion that is...

Re: Greetings good peopke :-)

Ryan, today I have been checking out some of the 'No response' posts, something I don't usually do, but I came across your post from last July. I am sorry it didn't get any attention from others then, but would like to give it my attention now. I guess what I’m doing is projecting the now in to some...

Re: Spiritual Growth From Plant Medicines Paired With Music

I found another of your posts that required some simple formatting adjustments to make it more readable. Maybe it will get the some attention and feedback relevant to the content. When you make a post do a 'Preview' of it before making it accessible to members, and from that preview make adjustments...

In what may prove to be a vain effort to garner some meaningful views of your lengthy and ponderous tome I have broken it into more manageable paragraphs.
