Personalised awareness

What's the 'motive/purpose driving our search? If I am to be honest, uppermost is a self-ish (egoic) desire to have a blissfull life, whatever. It's all about Me, my bliss, my awakening etc. Me in the now. Even my awareness appears as highly personalised. It's mine happening to me. This can't be rig...

Re: Eric Putkonen

Interesting posts, but were all skipping willingly down a blind alley here, no matter, but a lot of minds seem to be working overtime. I guess its important for you moderators to moderate the authenticity of material that could influence site members.Thats appreciated. I for one have had a bellyfull...

Am I a chicken?

Hi all, A man went to the doctors believing that he was a chicken and had a nasty case of feather rot which was giving him a lot of pain. The Doc, being a rather enlightened charactor, thought mmm now I can either reinforce this chaps delusion and treat the feather rot or I can gently lead him to th...

Re: Addiction as negativity

Hi caet, I persume you mean substance addiction? Don't we use many forms of addiction to mask/escape our painbodies rather than face them? So I guess that if we follow Tolle's advice and observe the pain and associated thoughts, without judgement, we'll eventually solve the problem at its source. fr...

Re: Who here is fully enlightened?

We all are!

Just that most of us are totally mesmerised/transfixed with the mind and overlook the obvious.

How can we not be present?

How can we not be here now?

How can we not be pure unfiltered awareness?

it's funny really. Oh so much effort

Re: How do "I" cope with feeling rejected

Hi, I'll have a go. First start by doing the opposite (not trying to change your thoughts and feelings), be really honest with yourself. Put this 'resentment' under a microscope, study how it feels, look at it from all angles, where is it in the body? When you have really got in touch with it make n...

Re: What if your "now" is horrifying?

Hi, In response to chariot's post. I was also convinced initially of a link between repressed and unaccepted emotions and physical illness. I still am but with a much more realistic hat on. We all percieve ourselves as form/bodies here and even highly realised teachers fall fowl to physical illness ...

Re: Doorway to presence: imagined scrutiny

Hi GFM,

I just played with your suggestion and it brought about an emmediate presence! Thanks.

I am always pulled out of dream land with Adya's quote of 'looking for God with God's eye's'

Re: What if your "now" is horrifying?

Hi, I have a very challenging health situation which I am unable to change and have pondered ET;s words like yourself. What seems to be genuinely useful is; I can't change this however there is no need to add to my life situation's difficulty by giving and believing the mental commentary that initia...

Re: Heaven and Hell

hi Paulie, I can only give my take on your question, but hell is when I'm identified with ego (my conditioned self), heaven is when there's no identification with my habitual, constructed self. Maybe the words hell and heaven are metaphors for our inner condition which is dependant on wether we choi...

Re: the ego's spirituality?

So simply put; there is either identification as ego or the realisation that I am what supports/contains everything percieved.

No progress, no getting closer, no nearly there, no advancement,

Just one or the other.

So all my so called practice/progress is utter cobblers?

Ahhhh

Re: the ego's spirituality?

hi,

this morning it seems to have become crystal clear that I need to butt out, give up and haven't got a clue, is that surrender?
