Loss of form means new empty space is available, deep spiritual understanding of "unmanifested being" has not only given us the courage to face "empty" space, but allow us to see the "empty" space as fertile ground for new and more beautiful things, and to experience the great feeling of awe, wonde...

Crikey, I missed this one. Great discussion! Ultimately I feel for me alcohol is about lack of fulfilment. It is about sating something that can never really be extinguished, because it's not outside, no matter how many maudlin sentimental love songs we play ourselves whilst we're hammered. It's a h...

What I feel through my characters is a disidentified pain body. It's THEIR pain. It sounds kinda perverse - I guess it's like watching a soap opera - but because it's someone else's pain, you can feel the emotional trigger but still feel good about it because you know it isn't you and you can withd...

Hmmm,

No pain body there at all. But definitely a mask.

(It may be my perception, but I can't help it. More irony.)

Let me try this, because I am presently trying a new way to approach any disharmony whatsoever, and have just noticed that the last post is what I would have written two weeks ago, and I am trying to be different now. Doesn't make it less true for me, but so is this.. Jada, I feel that you perceive ...

Y'know for someone who purports to not really be bothered, to have no pain body etc etc, you certainly seem hell bent on defending yourself - defending what? You're not doing anything wrong, jada - except maybe missing an irony, and taking other people's notice of that very personally. I'll try agai...

Hi Myself, That's a lovely picture of yourself you have there - hubba hubba. And it did make me smile too when you posted it up under your name, and then wrote a very interesting post about romantic/intimate/sexual longing, then second post going into details of what you are like in the hands of the...

Glad I'm close. :) I recently watched an ET video and in it he says something to the effect of - suffering works, you can identify with mind and suffer and suffer until eventualy you reach breaking point, and break through. But spiritual practice ( I don't think he used those words, but again, it's ...

Hi weichen, I am not sure who this 'she' person is that you are talking about, but from your post, it seems you are suggesting that 'normal' people - even those with PHDs in science - have to hit a height of 'mind power' before they can reach a 'loathing of the mind', and thus move beyond it into pr...

I think what you might be talking about is that once we start to identify the mind, it often comes with huge pain bodies that are grotesque when you see the peace that is behind them. Often it doesn't look as if you could get there from here. And there is a period - a dark night - of wrestling with ...

Ahh, Jada, thanks for putting the lyrics of that song here. It's one of my faves. But, even though I love it, it's one of those ---uh -- uninformed songs, a bit like Alanis Morrisete's Ironic where all she sings about are poetic examples of misfortune, without a shred of irony to them at all.

And I also loved what...oh goodness..some women who I loved to read years ago said about it, and I do not have her book anymore, so I am paraphrasing: "Fear is greedy: it wants you. When you see yourself succumbing to fear know that it is an entity with teeth. When you see it, look at it. Face it. Y...
