Re: Confusion

James, I'd like to get some of those phone numbers, but I get kinda worried when I'm just talking to somebody like that over the internet. I guess it's just something I've always felt and I'm gonna have to get over it, because I don't think I will get any better until I do this. Oncelor made a good ...

Re: Confusion

I've gone to the school councelor many times...it doesn't do much good for me and I don't think it would be a good idea to go back. I don't want to go to any psychiatrists, I just need somebody who knows counceling. It feels like none of it helps, though, because it doesn't forward my understanding ...

Re: Confusion

Thanks for all the help, guys. I really appreciate it. I have very little respect and love for myself, anymore. Anytime that I even begin to think about myself, I base myself off of what other people think. If the majority of people treat me with respect and compliment me for some way, I will reflec...

Confusion

Am I the only one on here with this problem? I seem to have a very bad problem with trying to tell what I am...I still feel like ego most of the time and I always feel like I'm refering to myself from it's perspective. It's like when I try to listen, I just go through countless random thoughts, like...

Fighting to be free

If we want to be present, we must transcend mind. We appear to be the only species on this planet with a born disease. What's wrong with us? Why can't we just be born without our dysfunction? What's the point of everyone having to fight back a thing that's a part of them and is always ready to attac...

The Antichrist

Since we've learned from ET about what the bible was really trying to say, what is the antichrist, exactly? And is this antichrist gonna come into the world in physical form or what?

Re: social anxiety question

I have the same problem, actually, but it may be different than what you're experiencing. I can tell you that your ego can imagine a lot of things which can throw you off and confuse you into thinking you CAN'T work with situations. It's all ego and it comes from nowhere else except it. My problem i...

Re: When the ego speaks...

Why does this feel so impossible for me? I still react to events and what people call "me" just as if I never knew about any of this. It's like being at the movies; you can say what's going on but you can't do or change anything happening in the movie. What am I missing? Why is this so difficult for...

Re: When the ego speaks...

Thanks for the comments again, guys.

One thing: are all egoic voices the same way? Are some more detectable than others? What is that based off of?

Re: When the ego speaks...

Feelings can be accepted and should be...fully. Let these feelings in - acknowledge them. Witness them. It is in the experience of them that we see we are not them. As soon as you spot a feeling response to a stimulus, observe it. You can choose to express the feeling or let it be. The painbody is ...

Re: When the ego speaks...

I don't know why I can't see which one is me and which one is the mind. The ego and the mind are closely related. The mind creates the ego and the ego exists in the mind. The "real you" is neither one of these. The real you is, as WW said, the present moment, presence, awareness, or stillness (all ...

Re: When the ego speaks...

It feels like me and the ego are the same person. I don't know why I can't see which one is me and which one is the mind. The best thing that I can do is to tell myself that it's just ego's reaction, but I can never really set that logic into motion. There is a deep fear inside of me that I have tro...

When the ego speaks...

Something that kinda confuses me: when you see or experience something that makes you angry, why does it seem more like THAT's making you angry instead of the ego? Where does the ego fall into place here?
