Thanks weichen:

Again, your response is interesting and I have some good stuff to think about. I say "think about' because I have not been able to sustain that level of watching. It's good to know that others can.

Thanks for your efforts in this thread.

Hello (???): You said I know I am identifying with the rantor, but the thing is that I am not able to get out of it. I have been trying this for the past month or so. I do get this when I am practicing it, but most of the time when I am preoccupied with other things in my life, I can't practice ET. ...

Greetings ???: I hesitate to say anything because I have had similar problems and I know that for each person it's different; however I can tell you some of the things I did. I get the feeling from your post that things are very emotionally charged. Get to know your emotions. There are a number of w...

Thank you, weichen. I see what your getting at and it's a good point. It accords with my own experience even though the prejudices are different. I find it interesting that in our experience of watching there seems to be a little "clock time" creeping in. I think it's because we don't have the power...

Weichen: Interesting thread. I think I'm not clear on what you mean by "little me". My problem is that when I began watching my mind I naturally began to watch my behavior. Maybe it's just me (the little one, of course) but it sounds like your talking about watching the body as though it's a permane...

Hi fifi: I can tell you a little story about this because I remember it vividly. One year ago I began a six month course to learn how to meditate. It turned out to be the real thing. About one month into the course I was engaged in a walking meditation trying to focus my mind and suddenly I saw that...

What a great post!

Maybe I'm mistaken, but it sounds to me like you do have joy. It's your life. Don't label it, just love it like you do in this post.

You can be assured, if you still don't have joy, I do. I always do when I hear of things like this.

Thank you

I hesitate to throw my bit into this thread because I've got similar "problems" with pain body experiences. Yet, I think sharing might be helpful. To begin with, FlyingMan, you are experiencing peace. You say there are days when the painbody is less active. This is very encouraging. Don't hang on to...

locksmith said: Now, I will just observe and do nothing but listen. Maybe I'm mistaken, but my experience with this problem has led me to not listen. Listening creates division between listener and that which is heard. Let the mind be. Much easier said than done, I know, but this is about practice.

What a great post, because yesterday the "noisy jerk" did move out. Gone are the loud 3 AM. domestic disputes, the 1:30 AM arriving home from the bar and thumping loudly across the floor, the 6:30 playing of the one album she owned or worse the 6:30 am workout directly over my head. I can actually f...
