Hey Serenity, I'm very sorry to hear that you are in such a situation. Listen to the advice of Webwanderer. Move out! This is just too much for one person to handle. Pain is a signal that there is a problem. The problem is your parents, brother and everybody else who limits you. Step away from them ...

Ninjin, I have gone through all your answers in this post. It seems that a lot where you are talking about is based on presuppositions and beliefs. It is like you know all these people. You can not talk like you know everybody on this forum. It is propably true that little people are enlightened, bu...

What if you happened upon the most beautiful sunset of your life one evening? Could you sit there for 20 minutes and truly gaze at it without the mind making noise about some other "more important" thing? Or do you spend the majority of it far away, in another place and time? Why is it that in the ...

It's like fire, when controlled it is a valuable tool; when out of control it may burn down ones home. Beautifully said Webwanderer :). We must indeed not make thinking into our enemy, ego cannot kill ego. Sometimes I think that we just have to tune the mind. Just keep an eye on it. Not for eventua...

Re: I need clarification, who can help?

Hey Dev, First of all: Congratulations with your recovery of schizophrenia :) . Now about your question: SIMPLY PUT, HOW CAN I WATCH MY THOUGHTS WHEN I AM THINKING (SIMULTANEOUSLY) ?!?! The beginning of freedom is when you realize that you are not the thinker, when you realize that there is "this so...

You are the field of awareness in which events come and go. Be fully open to whatever occurs but avoid judgmental attachments. Observe, forgive and let life flow freely. Gosh this is hard for me. Just remember a couple of guidelines of Tolle :) . Observe how the mind works... Observe the voices, no...

The moment you wrote this post, there was no suffering in your direct environment. Why does it matter if it is happening in my immediate environment or not? Just because I don't see it doesn't meant it is not happening. Let us simplify this :) . For example: you are sitting on the pc, surfing the n...

Re: Suffering of others

But the NOW is when their suffering occurs, because I know that right now someone somewhere in the world is suffering? The moment you wrote this post, there was no suffering in your direct environment. The Now is the place and the time where you are at a certain moment. There is propably some mistr...

Something that helped me out and that I sometimes use for 'being the watcher' :arrow: "It says..........." The 'it' refers to the false self and this way it helps to focus more on the thoughts and emotions, it improves your inquiry. It is a tip from Vernon Howard, a very good author. I heard from hi...

The strange thing is that the same Bjorn Borg has tried to kill himself already 5 times after his professional tennis career, so that is the complete opposite of his presence during a tennis game.
