Satsang-Los Angeles area

I am in Los Angeles for a bit and want to attend a satsang...lol never been to any spiritual meetings so feels funny and is it ok that I might not know what to expect or what is expected of me?

Traffic

I have been riding with my hubby in his semi..yes he is a truck driver. A year ago I said no way could I ever do that..I think I like to control the vehicle and I cringe when in traffic. For the most part the stuff he thought I could not handle...I do. Sleeping in the cab, truck stops are shower, re...

Re: To whom should I turn in my hour of need?

Some common themes I discovered: Many stumbled into this situation seemingly by accident rather than design i.e. alcohol and/or drug use, often the first time they got high. One lady I read about came to this condition after having chemo-therapy for cancer. Trauma and abuse is cited as well as a ca...

Kymatica

I did a search on here and didn't see anything about this video or it's maker Ben Stewart. Just wondering what you thought about it if you have seen it.

I found it interesting, eye opening and pointing to us living unconscious or conscious.

Re: Hehe

Love reading your posts alex. I am not quite there yet, but am constantly reminding myself to come back to HERE. When my mind wanders and asking what is next, what do I do now, I recognize or "feel" in the way back distance, the truth of there is nothing I can do, I am already here. I guess the good...

Re: Thoughts and reality

So why did the thought pop in my head? Tara ... just so I know I'm on the same page with you ... are you curious about the coincidence of your wondering why your brother was not on Facebook and the timing of his friend request? Yes wondering about the coincidence. Noticing my thoughts more and more...

Thoughts and reality

Hi All, I haven't posted in a long while but am a very frequent reader :D I understand about thoughts, letting them pass, not resisting but not attaching. And sometimes I will do the Byron Katie thing on them. So here is my question: I have a FB account and have quite a few family members on it. Yes...

Re: Clarity and Illusion

funny just read this from Scott Kiloby: "The thought, "I have no clue what enlightenment is," is as valid as the thought, "I know exactly what enlightenment is." When both are seen to be equal arisings that come and go, what else is there to know, be, understand, or do? If you want to suffer, pick o...

Re: Clarity and Illusion

From someone who visits regularly I glean so much from this forum. Yes sometimes I "think" I can tell if someone is new and someone has more insight..but as pointed out quite often should we not experience this ourselves? Not take someone's word for it? Check it out? Not judge? But who are we to jud...

Re: How often do you experience deep inner peace?

Can you elaborate on self-honesty, what it means, how to "get" it, etc? Thanx A few years ago, while reading Tolle, many people I knew talked about being present, and people often talked about how blissful and peaceful presence feels. But presence didn't feel blissful me at all. It felt lifeless and...

Re: Presence's effect on motive

Read your statement again, and really think about it. Do we make choices, or does things just happen? Do we make the choice to be born? Do we choose our parents? Do we choose how they bring us up, and therefor do we choose what kind of person we become and how we react to certain situations? And fi...

Re: Isn't ego a chemical construct?

To answer the question of awareness, I ask you all to explore the following questions: 1. Where is awareness in the middle of dreamless sleep? 2. Where is awareness when under the influence of general anesthetic? Please answer these questions from your own level of awareness, not quoting the so-cal...

Re: The Only THing I Have To Deal With Is The Present Moment

I just want to say this thread is one of those that is "helping" not just the poster. This is one I am going to re-read and re-read. As I am reading it, it feels like it is coming from me. I am getting "it" intellectually and can "feel" the truth of "it" but there is still something that needs to un...

Re: The trappings of the mind
