Re: A new reference point

I have just been doing some of Douglas Harding's experiments and they are golden. A couple of nights ago I got this distinct feeling that the space where my head is - is the same space outside my head! It was one space where everything happens. Give it a go, highly recommended and simple.

Re: douglas harding

I have been doing some of these experiments over the past week and they are profound! So simple, only take a few seconds, but they'll point you towards your true self quickly.

Re: Practicing Gratitude

Thank you for the responses so far. Recognition of life's gifts opens a channel to genuine appreciation, and that appreciation/gratitude is the radiance of love. Look and see - sense and be. It's right in front of you. I interpret this as "continue to practice being grateful and the feeling of love ...

Re: Practicing Gratitude

Thanks for your response Jason, but your response is not answering my question. You have given me a spiel on awakening, which ultimately is what I want, but is not something I can just make happen. In the mean time, I want to have more positive thoughts and happier feelings. I realise that this is s...

Practicing Gratitude

I have been practicing gratitude for the past 2 months as I have learned from a few different sources that this is a great way to become happier with my life. I have noticed that Webwanderer also speaks about it frequently. My question: Is it enough just to have grateful thoughts? Or do I have to ge...

Re: Self Inquiry Is Addictive

Thanks Intel, I'll probably keep doing it but let go of any expectations of it.

Re: Self Inquiry Is Addictive

Thanks WW, yes I have tried the "What am I?" question as well (and others such as "What am I doing here?" or "Who am I right now?" etc) I suppose you can ask yourself these questions a million times and never "realise" the answer. Maybe you just need to be ready before the answer spontaneously arises.

Re: Self Inquiry Is Addictive

When I ask this question to myself during meditation, I get no answer. It doesn't seem to help at all. At best it leads to more thoughts that go round in circles back to the original question "Who am I"? Asking this question to myself now feels devoid of meaning, like I am just asking it because "th...

Re: Self Inquiry

Thanks for the response Billy. I am using the work to try and uncover some limiting beliefs that I think are the cause of my social anxiety issues. I have "judged my neighbour" a few times but I generally get along with people quite well so am directing the inquiry more to my own beliefs. I have bee...

Re: Self Inquiry

Thanks for clarifying Kiki. I will keep Ramana in mind if I want to try a different method of inquiry. Suppose no one here had done Katie's work, but you still felt inwardly drawn to do it? Which direction would you go? I would learn to trust the inner guide. All true inquiry will bring you to the s...

Re: Self Inquiry

Thanks for your replies so far. Not many people have said that they've actually committed to this practice for a long period and it's helped them. Anyone had a long term commitment with "the work"? I really do feel like this is the right way to go for me. In the small amount of time that I've been d...

Self Inquiry

Hey all, I remember first reading about Byron Katie on this forum, so I eventually decided to have a look at her work. I read "Loving What Is" and really enjoyed it, just last week I started doing The Work (self inquriy) on myself on an almost-daily basis. Tolle has been quoted as saying "Byron Kati...

Re: Challenging Eckhart: Practice is necessary, as is clock time

I have wondered about this topic too. There is no denying that there is practice to do because otherwise you will continue to live identified with thought and nothing will change. But the practice is only ever NOW. To think about practice like "I will practice for 30 mins at 9pm each day" is a menta...
