Re: Heavy pain body when I wake up in the morning

I do an "inner body scan" regularly...very comforting! Thanks, Jen!

Re: Heavy pain body when I wake up in the morning

There are many meditation paths and techniques. If something is not working or is a negative experience, try something else...your experience is the final authority.

Re: Heavy pain body when I wake up in the morning

Welcome to the forum, My Ninth Life. Regardless of ETs dramatic awakening, most people slog through many hours of meditation before they become less drawn in to the big thought-stream. Just the cognitive knowledge that you are not your mind is not sufficient to shut down that engine...I say this so ...

Re: How can we do our bit for spreading awakening?

RT - I run a Meetup group in my hometown, but haven't had a meeting in a while. An odd group showed up at the last meeting. I try to be sure everyone who wants to speak can do so, but I stop them at three minutes for their first comment until everyone who wants to speak has spoken. Expect lots of eg...

Re: Awakening

Or using thoughts to build a whole new spiritual self and unconsciously avoiding emotions that are believed to be detrimental to that self. It's suble, but the ego can slip in through the back door in this way. I think it's what some term spiritual bypassing? Building a 'whole new spiritual self,' ...

Great post! Synchronicity...it's everywhere. We (including me) often fail to see it.

Re: Awakening

Thanks, Alicia! You mention "the witness" a couple of times, recalling my recent reading of Ram Dass' 2013 book "Polishing the Mirror." He talks about the witness at length in there, and it's re-affirming to hear another person speak of it. I think recognizing and, for a while, identifying with "the...

Re: The Age of Awakening

Welcome Alicia - In my opinion, any teacher who does not, early in his or her lecture or book, clarify that the real teacher is within the student, and not standing on the podium is a fraud. Authentic teachers constantly send students back into themselves, on an "inner hike" if you will. Constant re...

tamli -

We are an independent forum and cannot comment on policies on the ET website - you will have to get clarification from them.

Re: NDE, Dying, Nonduality--Ted Talk

Great links, thanks all. Jac O'Keeffe spoke about the non-physical spirit world at the last SAND conference, also. Nanci Danison is also a favorite of mine on this topic - she has written 5 books - here is a link to a short concise interview:

Re: Tolle Criticism

Lovely comments, PureLand. You have kind of copied my style by quoting other teachers to make a point, rather than simple echoes. All that said, one could expand on your comments and say something like "living in bliss, there is no criticism of anything." But, of course we know that ET was critical ...

Re: Why no sublime sense of Depth and Being?

Jonski - Can anyone please help me to understand why I'm not at all sensing in any way the incredible ocean of 'Being', loaded with depth, and significance, and my deeper identity outside of 'Form'? When you are in this witnessing state that is kind of boring or meaningless to you, try one of ETs "i...

Re: Why no sublime sense of Depth and Being?

Thanks Pureland and Turiya! In 2007, ET was on a radio program with Oprah and made the following statement that brought me up short: "You are the present moment." This is essentially his message in Pureland's link. It's pretty scary, of course..."I'm not 'Andy'...I'm "the present moment???" What is ...
