Re: Wild Wild Country

The food was poor

That probably says it all. With all the talk of being first in that, new in this etc. and didn't get the food right at the cafe.

Re: Wild Wild Country

I'm 1/2 way through the 5th of 6 episodes now. Gosh, this gets ugly.

...

The ending has some sweetness to it. I thought it was well done.

To me, a true teacher has no followers. He or she simply live a life free of fear that has a subtle or profound effect on those who encounter them. They turn aside projections and allow no one to follow them. They are all around us.
That's right, very nice.

Re: Wild Wild Country

I'm less than half way through the third of six parts. Osho must have had quite a powerful personal charismatic presence. People go gaga over him. I never clicked with his videos or writing and understand that his is loved. I understand people get a lot out of his videos still. For me, I think he's ...

Re: Mind stuck on a past action regret

I watched this comedian, I can't remember who, make a joke about suddenly yelling in the shower because of a regret. I laughed because I have done that. There is probably sadness at the thought of harming your son. Just feel it all the way through. Observe the regret storm. See that you are here, br...

Oh that's about Osho? I will check it out. The trailer got my attention. I really don't know the story of his ranch.

Re: My meditation practice

Seems to me they come from the same place as the sun and the clouds and the hearbeats and the breaths. Control thoughts? Might as well control the weather. What can be done is see them for what they are and deprive your experienced state from identification stemming from thoughts. Cease finding a se...

Re: Tension in my body

But, how do I dissolve the tension? I agree with WW to enjoy yourself. I will add stay with the present moment. The mind want's to figure it out. A conclusion has been made to dissolve it? Sounds like a task for the mind. But nevermind the mind. Isn't it curious that tension? Isn't it interesting? ...

Re: My meditation practice

I picture a wolf in the center of the belly. This signifies my lone wolf nature. It makes me feel at peace. Is this appropriate spiritually? Wolves are my favorite animal so its a yes for me (for what it's worth). One more question: which do you think is more effective in dealing with negative intr...

The first link didn't work for me. That's a really nice video, Steve. I hadn't heard of Robert Adams. I like him. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Benjamin Smythe

Yes, that's good. Reminds me of Ruiz's 4 agreements, where a subpoint of "Be impeccable with your word" is "Avoid using the word to speak against yourself."
Good stuff.

Re: Benjamin Smythe

"Enlightenment Sucks" just might make an interesting t-shirt.
Then on the back as well, "The end of suffering Sucks" ?

Edit, anyway, how to avoid unhappy mind traps? Devalue the content and the workings of the mind.
