Just wanted to share my discovery

Hey everyone, I posted on this website many times, trying to figure out the "right" way to go about building awareness in my daily life. But one day, when I was casually searching youtube for Eckhart Tolle-related videos, I came upon one that described what enlightenment was. So it was then that I r...

One more thing

I'm trying to be aware of my body all the time, even when I feel like I'm forcing awareness on to it and there is no sense of peace (I think its realistic to expect that I won't feel peaceful all the time when focusing on the body). Would you members consider this to be a good practice? If I do feel...

How to surrender properly

Hello It seems that for a lot of the things that spiritual teachers suggest, I end up turning their recommendations into a procedure that quickly becomes artificial and therefore loses its value/ability to make me more present - it just turns into..kind of a "dead" routine that I follow. I don't thi...

Re: Hard to disidentify from my mind, help

Thank you Hermitloon :D. I have been overcomplicating matters. No more questions, I am just going to try to be present, aware, and feel the silence and space around me whenever I can. Wisdom comes on its own

Hard to disidentify from my mind, help

EDIT: Nevermind to future readers, this question is kind of irrelevant. I already know what to do; just be present and aware. I'll just keep doing that. I've been practising being mindful and aware, and one of the things I remember reading in Eckhart's book is that one of the major blockages to real...

Re: Difference between concentration and awareness

Thanks for the help everyone I just wanted to let you all know that today I managed to practise awareness quite succesfully, and it felt pretty peaceful. So I think I kind of figured it out on my own. I think I'll wait a little before I ask such questions in the future, as I think I can usually solv...

Difference between concentration and awareness

Hello I have been trying to follow the exercises that Eckhart Tolle has suggested throughout my workday, but often I have thoughts that I'm not doing awareness right. For example, I was walking to a building where I could have lunch, and in the process of trying to be aware of what I was doing, I ne...

Questions about how to observe, and a few other troubles

Ok: I just wanted to confirm this. Whenever I have a negative emotion within me, or even positive, should I just observe it? If I feel angry, but don't understand why, should I bother with trying to find the root cause, or just observe the anger and my confusion? I'm not sure whether its me or my "e...

My experience with Tolle (and a few others)

When I read Eckhart Tolle's book (and the works of others, most notably Anthony De Mello), I saw many truths in what they said that I could directly observe in my life experiences. But I could never really believe that what they said was true, just because it seemed to be. I always had this nagging ...

Anthony De Mello

Hello friends, I believe it was forum user "Chris" who introduced me to this man (indirectly). After reading some of his articles on his main website, I realized that this is the kind of spiritual help that I could really be in tune with, or learn better from, as an alternative to Eckhart Tolle. The...

Re: The Paradox of Now & Enlightenment

Hi Craig..not sure if you're still looking for responses, but when I read your question I thought about it to myself and came to a conclusion which I think should be satisfactory: I think it is true that "clock time" is needed for one to let go of the mind completely, since Eckhart repeatedly talks ...

Re: Paradox

Is it wrong to stop wanting to solve these problems? What if I were to stop thinking entirely. To go a whole day without thinking - to only think when I absolutely must. Lately my thoughts are going in circles, and I have never reached a conclusion that I was 100% satisfied with for my whole life. O...

Re: Paradox

Yes..he went "the way of the cross", and after experiencing great pain he disidentified with his mind and realized all these great things. I actually travelled the way of the cross too, and had my own blissfull experience, but I thought something was seriously wrong instead and tried to return to my...
