Re: Ten Years of Inner Body Awareness

Thanks for your reply. No, it didn't hurt. It just sounded like someone giving advice. I like using Byron Katie's "The Work" process sometimes. You could say that's a form of effort. I've done Vipassana. That was an interesting experience. It was basically just inner body awareness, just very focuse...

Re: Weird Action in Presence

Inner body awareness? Just like how Tolle describes in his famous book, The Power of Now. It's just feeling the body from within. It anchors us in presence. Well, who's to say what action is right or wrong? I do what I do. Negative things will drop away naturally while I sustain inner body awareness...

Weird Action in Presence

Hi, I'm almost continually in a state of inner body awareness. I still seem to do things that don't seem very conscious. I'll sit in front of the computer for hours. I'll eat food that's not very healthy. I'll do things that I don't even want to mention here. I keep feeling my body while doing these...

Re: Would ADD prevent presence?

What do you mean by "presence" though? The way you wrote that sounds almost to me like you're talking about a specific state you've experienced, and you want to get into that state. If so, that's not what Tolle means by presence. It's not about getting into a certain state and staying there, althoug...

Re: Imposible to go in to the pain body?

The easiest Tolle exercise for me is feeling the "inner" body. It's what I always fall back on. I've had some nice experiences focusing on silence, but it's not always possible. It IS always possible to feel the body though. It doesn't mean it necessarily feels good or that bad thoughts will go away.

Re: Apologizing's role in Spirituality

Yes. Self-condemnation seems to be a sticky one. I've done the work on it a few times over the past few days, and it's been good to see things from a different perspective. Peace.

Re: Apologizing's role in Spirituality

Thanks.

I think the heart of the problem yesterday was self condemnation. I will let the light of consciousness shine on that. Perhaps I'll dig out a tool, which is Byron Katie's "The Work" process.

Have a good day.

Apologizing's role in Spirituality

So, I had a troubled sleep last night. There are a bunch of things going in my life that I'm letting myself get worried about. I came to this idea, a little sarcastic, that I should just apologize to myself. Sorry for getting you into this crap. Sorry about the living situation, the money situation....

Re: Need help curing anxiety with law of attraction + Eckhar

I watched thoughts for 12 months so it didn't happen overnight it was a slow transitional change. I can see you're on the right track. :D
Thanks. I've been feeling the inner body and watching thoughts for a decade now. I read the Power of Now back in 2000 or 2001.

Re: Movies Concerning Awakening

I watched both Powder and Clifford, movies suggested on this list. I enjoyed both, but didn't understand why someone would suggest them here. I guess we're sort of talking about seeing things differently, and these two movies were about boys who were social outcasts, who saw things differently. Othe...

Re: Combining E. Tolle and Law of Attraction into one philos

It seems like there are two popular schools of thought: Law of Attraction (creating with thoughts and beliefs) and Spiritual Awakening (becoming free from thoughts, thoughts are illusory). I haven't read all of the posts here, so I don't know if anyone's addressed this, but... Awareness isn't a sch...

Re: Need help curing anxiety with law of attraction + Eckhar

There's anxiety and there's you. There's a desire to get rid of anxiety, and there's you.

There is anxiety in me right now. It is very strong. All I can do is watch it and let it be. Wanting to get rid of it is just more anxiety. There's no real choice but to watch the mind, watch the feelings.
