Highly Unconscious Individuals - How Do You Cope With Them?

Hi All, I have noticed as I have grown in presence, I find myself "further" away from others. I know this could be ego creeping up from behind, but I find myself "drifting away" from friends, especially those who are highly unconscious and completely absorbed in ego. Witnessing the neediness of othe...

Re: The Ego and Pain-Body In Regards to Romantic Relationships

Thank you both for your kind-hearted responses and assistance. I am trying really hard, but that's just it - there should be no "trying." There is, and there is not. I do not know why my struggles with this aspect of life are so deep; the ego tends to exploit them much more than other areas of my li...

The Ego and Pain-Body In Regards to Romantic Relationships

Hi all, I am 20 years old; when I was 16 I was introduced to The Power of Now by a friend trying to help me as I was struggling overcoming an unsuccessful relationship. I have now met someone who I have been talking to for the past couple months, but there are many things that I "overlook" and allow...

Is this a "Now" experience?- Please help identify

Late last night I was laying in bed, and all I can recall is that I woke up, and immediately I saw something so beautiful it triggered something within my heart and I felt a mini-explosion of awe inside my chest ... that was for literally a split second... and I remember this thought in my head imme...

I would be curious to observe how their relationship functions together, two people entrenched in the Now... it would be a good example to spread that power

What is the "present moment" like? What's your ex

I know I am told to not analyze, to not "try to feel" the present moment, but I have no idea what the present moment is like -- so I don't know if I've felt it, or if I ever will feel it. I know I'm not supposed to turn this into a goal, but I can't help but feel a little stuck since I've been famil...

Friendships with Unconscious Individuals: How do you make..

How do you have a genuine friendship with someone when everyone in your life is absorbed by the ego? My co-workers, my college friends, everyone - if idle gossip occurs from my lips for one moment, I realize it, but let it be -- yet hope that it will not be spread. Yet it is turned around and told t...

Alturism: Does it truly exist?

We have discussed this in one of my college psychology classes, and I'm curious about YOUR opinion. Alturism is helping someone with no personal gain or benefit. There are some scenarioes where we give and get nothing in return, but actually our ego gets a tiny "self-esteem" boost for helping someon...

How do I overcome the addiction of love?

There is a man I have recently met who is someone I would really like to be committed to. He is genuine, mature, caring, considerate, helpful, physically attractive - everything resembling the type of partner I would want to be with. My problem is.. the interest is not mutual, I don't believe he is ...

Meditation and Goals / Help or Hindrance?

2 Questions Here: First, I have a routine. I will usually get up, 'decide' I want to go tanning, so I do, then go work - out, etc... are these goals that I should not 'decide' to do? I'm confused about how to 'let things be as they are' when I have to take a somewhat proactive role in my life to act...
