Re: Can anyone help me, please?

The thing about ego is that it isn't an actual entity unto itself, it's not something real to begin with. By "real" I mean something that is always present at all times. In fact, all it is is a bundle of thoughts that weave together that give the appearance/impression of a separate self, a separate ...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

Ego does not "dissolve". Rather, attachment to and identification with it does. Once you see clearly/grok its artificial role it assigns itself as "director" of your life then it fades away until it actually serves some useful purpose in a given circumstance. So, yes, trying to "dissolve" the ego is...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

Let me just say this: Don't think about trying to figure out if the world is illusory. The truth is you have to live in this world, so go about your business and do what needs to be done in the moment it arises. What you need to see/understand/grok/realize, however, is that the world isn't what you ...

Re: Hobbies after Enlightenment

Interests and activities may indeed change, but a big factor in whether or not they do depends on the type of interests and activities one currently has. Hobbies that foster creativity or aren't ego driven will likely remain. Creative hobbies rely on being present, open and available so they are qui...

Re: Exercises blocked

Use what works now and don't worry about what isn't very effective. Forget about speculating about why they don't work since that's just adding some story for the mind to chew on. Over time those less effective ones may very likely be easier for you.

By the way, welcome to the board.

Re: Simple life

My outer life is quite simple, and for the most part no longer driven by outside factors. To others it might look rather boring, but from the most honest perspective, that of consciousness itself, it is simply what it is. There is contentment, peace and deep stillness no matter what I'm doing, and t...

Re: Favorite Eckhart Tolle audio

It's been a while since I've actually listened to or read his material. My favorite is the audio version of Stillness Speaks . The way he does the reading leads you into presence - the pauses he uses between concepts are especially powerful. Just listen without trying to understand anything and let ...

Re: Help!!!!!

I second Webwanderer's comments. I will add this: People who have a solid background in understanding the implications of following an awakening "path" will likely not become freaked out and confused when they shed the confines of an egoic viewpoint. More likely it's those who have awakened spontane...

Re: Help!!!!!

When you say focus behind your body is that the back of your body from the inside or the actual back of your body from the outside if that makes sense. Don't overthink this. Simply shift attention away from what's physically in front of you, what the body is feeling and what's happening in the mind...
