Click and wonder!

How does it feel? It's amazing. What an amazing experience! And it feels all reall, really real, hm? ...

Re: I am one with all

Who is one with all? Oneness is the seeing that there has never been anything else than "all is one". There are no persons, nowhere and never. There are obviously many body-minds, experiencing a lot of "me"-thoughts, but show me the persons! In my opinion, there's nothing wrong with thinking about t...

Re: "Watching the thinker" leads to self criticism

Hi nebula! First, I must admit that I didn't read all the posts written in this thread. But your first post sounds very similar to what I have experienced, too, after having studied Tolle's book. I hope I can give you some useful advice. Find out what you are at the very source instead of trying so ...

Re: Obsessive thinking about Presence?

The mind can be a very nasty, a dangerous - even a deadly place - when you think you are in it! Go back to the source of where all things come into being, also "yourself". Whatever is the content of consciousness isn't you. You are the dreamer of the dream you call "world". The dream may be horrible...

Re: How do I stop caring what other people think of me?

I recently read a very good statement: "If one says 'I don't like you' it is a statement about him - not about you" Everyone is free to think whatever he wants. One can only speak from his little mental world - which has nothing to do with you or what you are. A statement from someone else is but a ...

Guilt / responsability

Hi everyone! The last time was... well... I could write a book about it :lol: I found for myself, that I am not in the world . That may sound funny (it is). Consciousness is, to me, today like a window through which the nameless witness sees the world. It sees the world, it sees feelings, thoughts a...

asta's lines

Hi folks! After some time I'd like to share again some short lines with you - the ones, which were most useful to me. May they be same helpful to you as they have been to me! (Correct English?! Hope you don't "mind" :wink:) There's nothing wrong about stories - but you aren't a story! Play your part...

Re: End Depression Now

I'd like to add my own 2 cents, as well... From my earliest age on I suffered from a feeling of extreme unworthiness. At my teenage years I became very self-centered to prove my own worth to myself - I was my hardest judge. Of course, I behaved very stupidly and everything became worse. After all, I...

Re: freedom of will

Hmmm... BrahmanEternal, what you call "free will" is - I think - the heart of bondage! Who says you must make "right" decisions? It seems to me like we are all protagonists in this world and we can't know what is in the script. Awakening seems like the knowledge that we aren't the part we are playin...

Re: freedom of will

thanks for posting, guys! it seems like the body is something like a vehicle and that the mind controls it - even if you are neither the mind, nor the body. The unborn eternal life, being, is always there and consciousness is the bridge, the silent mirror between the unborn and the born. The born is...

freedom of will

Hello everyone! I have been away from the forum for some time. It was not the time to ask questions or to discuss something. But now there is a new very important questions: A teacher told me that everything just happens, everything is an expression of the one. The one who likes to play the part of ...

Re: Who Truly Beliieves in Enlightnment? Is it sensationalized?

Hmmm... Well... The thing about being. what I think about being is the awakening from the dream and being one with life and everything and everybody else behind the veil of the egoic concepts again. Okay, in reality, maybe there isn't a problem about being identified with the ego but when you are, i...

starting with zero one more time

Hi guys! After some time I have decided to start with zero again, reading PON again. Zero knowledge, zero understanding. So I wonder...Is there really anything I can do to awake from these illusions about myself I have in my head? I somehow don't manage to stay in a state of no-mind, I just can't do...

Re: Who Truly Beliieves in Enlightnment? Is it sensationalized?

haha, well... Enlightenment... I just checked out the forum because this was again a day full of strange states of consciousness (the first part of the day was like a trip on some kind of drug) and the second part was only one huge confusion. I now decide not to start a new thread again, like I want...
