Re: Self hatred after messing up something sacred to me

I see Eckhart Tolle talks about these kinds of tragedies as catalysts for awakening, does this apply even to these self created tragedies? It certainly does. What's past is past, and no amount of self-flagellation and guilt can change what happened. Repeatedly beating yourself up for something in t...

Re: Maintaining awareness throughout the day

Following the breath is simply a place to put attention on when thought stream has taken you on a mental trip. It's those mental trips into the future or past that people get caught up and lost in that keep attention away from presence. If there is a situation that needs thinking then allow mind/int...

Re: Apathy

Glad to hear your report, kharr1sma. Your body has accumulated a lot of stress over the years, and medications can certainly affect how you feel as they alter the nervous system, and coming off them can be rough. I see that you have gained some insight in how to approach wellness more effectively ra...

Re: Hello from New Hampshire, USA

Welcome to our community, kharr1sma. Glad you found Eckhart's teaching, which I'm sure will be beneficial to you. There's another teacher out there who has written a book on the same thing, but he's coming at it from the angle to help people who have substance abuse like he did. He actually was a po...

Re: Kill the Ego

However I have a question about the times I was 'fully' awake. There was utter and complete peace. There was just complete silence and happiness. Yes, good. But I guess I din't get rid of my Ego because it came back anyway. But for a time it seemed like I was completely free. Yes, it will come back...

Re: Kill the Ego

Even a temporary thought structure is real is it not? Isn't it real for the time in exists in the mind, until you successfully disidentify with it? The appearance of the Ego and its various characteristics help us to recognize dysfunction and thereby not identify with it. I guess you could call the...

Re: Kill the Ego

What dissolves is identification with ego. Once that happens ego makes fewer and fewer appearances, and when it does show up it is seen more and more easily for the illusion that it is. As it shows up less frequently the number of thoughts in the mind diminishes significantly, and without thoughts d...
