body sensation

I remember in one of the episode of Hoarders on A & E, an old woman has made her own house a dumpster with piles and piles of stuff, trash, rotten food, and dead cats. Her daughter desperately wants to help her, but she often blames everyone else around her. Everything is always everybody else's fau...

Re: Has Anyone Here had a Similar Experience of Awakening ?

I know what's referred to here, and yes, I have had moments like this before my big change. This is just me. What I experience from even deeper transformation is that this true self that we experience is always here deep inside. And there is such a thing as being connected and feeling it all the tim...

Re: Chakras and enlightment.

Here is an very informative website about kundalini. http://biologyofkundalini.com/ Inner energy will take us on the right track, by listening to our own truth.

ultimate connection with self--total honesty

Sit down. Relax the body. Breathe deeply so we can really feel. Surrender to whatever we are feeling currently. Surrender. Ask if pretending anything or resisting anything. Admit it. Feel anything that comes up. Accept it. In order to go deeper, we have to be totally honest. We need to be totally aw...

humble beings

While driving on the street to work the other day, I noticed the bags and bags of trash overflown out of the trash barrels in front of houses and stores. It occurred to me the other day how much trash I am generating all the time. Sometimes I am surprised how fast I have to throw my trash out, while...

If we don't even notice we are breathing, what else are we

If we don't even notice we are breathing, what else are we missing?

Maybe our spiritual guide. Maybe a spirit trying to make contact. Maybe the Truth

Because the quality of our attention is only 30%

Once we pay full attention, we see the whole thing around us, that is and have always been here.

I am with the truth

“I am with the Truth.” Six years ago when I was at the bottom of my misery near the end of that relationship, what got me through was “I am with the Truth.” Yes, I am left alone. Yes, he doesn’t want me. Yes, he and her are happy ever after. Yes, he is with her and I am all alone. Yes, he is so crue...

Re: Envy of others

Another reason of envying others is the illusion toward possession. He has what I want. I want it too. But in fact, we can't have anything. Possession is an illusion. No one can own anything. We come to the earth empty handed, and we leave the same way. If we try to own something, the desire and the...

Re: romantic love

When I first submerged in all these wonderful feelings, I found it to be very similar to romantic love, except that there doesn't seem to be a target or cause. The feeling stay with me whereever I go. Everything I do is just a part of the whole experience. I was a bit puzzled first--why am I in love...

Are there needs and wants after awakening

The story of the Buddhist Lama who sobs when his friend dies, and the student is dismayed -- "Why are you crying? You teach me of non attachment to the suffering, and yet here you are, wallowing in tears! Why do you cry?" And the teacher replied "Because I can." I really like this part about Buddhis...
