Ah, language.. :) Yeah, real is a loaded word. I love visionary sci-fi author Philip K. Dick's definition of real: Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away. Chew on that for awhile :lol: Now JD, quoting from the posts you referenced.. Lie down and immerse yourself in gui...

The mind says to you "I am a smoker and Ill always be. Ive tried to quit and failed." Thats not really true. You smoked cigarettes in the past. You were a smoker. In the past. What you do now is up to you. The mind says to you "I can never live without cigarettes. All the millions of cigarettes I wi...

True true JD, I understand what you are saying. It may be language that is the culprit here. The word mind gets used in different ways. Renaissance was referring to the mind as a series of automatic thoughts. Im saying that thoughts like these have no inherent power. They are just mental images and ...

I agree except for the powerful part. What power does the mind have?

Yeah, aint it funny? Every time you discover the power of presence, the ego jumps in and not only takes credit for it, but exclaims, "Oh wow!! I can USE this! Presence is just what I need to solve all my problems! Look at me now, with all of my presence. think what Ill be able to do!!" :lol: :lol: :...

Its a radical perspective he's suggesting. Look within and remove all investment in the opinions of other people. Or self-opinions for that matter. Give up the desire to be liked, admired, accepted, approved of, wanted. Throw out the whole notion of self-esteem or pride. Give up the desire for what ...

Yeah, thats good. It seems acceptance and awareness are the same. More awareness and acceptance just gets deeper. More acceptance and awareness grows. Acceptance, awareness, allowing, surrender, releasing, relaxing, stillness, presence, spaciousness, consciousness, love. All the same, no?

How do you get out of it?

Think about a monkey. Now try to stop thinking about a monkey. Get that monkey out of your head.

You cant get out of it! Because 'getting out' is just more of it.

Have you tried going into it?

I agree, cut through all the spiritual jargon. Weichen's said it, just relax.

Relax the body, relax the mind, relax the emotions. Thats all that enlightenment is. Let yourself relax.
