Re: Ramana Maharshis Who am I? I need help understanding it

My questions about the nature of the Self is basically is it just pure Awareness? It is the substratum in which all objects appear in it, it is formless and cannot be located? What you fundamentally are is formless pure Awareness. But if so, this body we all take to be ourselves or identify with in...

Re: Awakening

Thanks for sharing, Alicia. The account of your experience is good food for others to imbibe. Once one has a direct experience the teachings of others becomes clarified and deeply meaningful. Following my first foray into meditation in 1973 I came across the teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti and a few...

Re: Who or What?

Well said, WW. It's a subtle but very important point, and I really like the way you phrased it to make the distinction.

Re: Hello, seeking awakening !

Welcome to the forum, Bryan. Stillness Speaks is my favorite Tolle book, but I think listening to it is even better than reading it. Let the words wash over you as he speaks without struggling to understand the concepts, and use the frequent pauses in narration to just rest. At some point you will n...

Re: I make myself crazy, can't stop thinking about something.

I like to use the following analogy for using effort to "wake up", but it also applies to trying to get rid of thoughts: Trying to wake up is like standing on a board and trying to lift yourself in the air. It doesn't work because the one who makes the effort (egoic identity/little me) is the very t...

Re: Age

There are a lot of older folks as well, including me. I'll be turning 68 in a matter of a few weeks.

Re: Hello!

Welcome to the forum. At one time we had a member here who woke up and now works with those with addictions using the same principles that Tolle speaks of. His name is Scott Kiloby. Scott was also addicted to alcohol, so he is well versed in the issues you are facing, and he's developed a methodolog...

Re: Is it worth telling someone that something they did upset you?

Keep in mind that the other person is most likely acting in an unconscious way or acting from their own pain body. Letting them know you are hurt/offended can begin a cycle of defensiveness between the two of you. Here's a chance for you to let things drop, and instead of repressing your reaction of...

Re: how do I remain present while being with my memories?

Nice post, turiya. That is what I do when I write, and especially when responding to posts on waking up. I go to source consciousness/stillness for a while and then begin to compose. Then if something doesn't quite mesh with my intended outcome or feel right then I get quiet again until I am ready t...
