Re: Symptoms of Awakening

Sounds like a 'pain-body' reaction. I've found the ego will use anything to pull you back. I try not to have a mental reaction to the pain-body now.

Re: staying mindful through the day

Re: Dealing with any problem?

You" are always present no matter what the circumstance, no matter if you are "awake" or not. Feel the truth of this deeply and you can relax about the whole thing, and then this "cosmic amusement park ride" of form takes on an entirely different tone - even the "difficult times" will be openly acc...

Fear, anxiety, fatigue, hunger, quivering, complaining, overworking; they all come and go. They rise and fall like a wave that threatens to drown me when my back ...
