Re: marriage

I am currently in that exact situation. I believe I am "doing the work" while she just bitches about every little thing that doesnt go her way. The truth is, why do I think it could or should be different. It's the mind saying "if only this could happen, then I would be at peace." ET likes to use Je...

Re: A new belief?

I guess, I was saying if you arent ready, dont read my posts, you wont get it. But, when you have suffered enough then maybe you will see it from a new perspective. So...are you implying I'm not awakened because I haven't suffered enough? I have been reading your posts, but I still don't get it :) ...

Re: A new belief?

Mushi, your comments are a gift, truly. I'm not one that needs to be left alone to believe what I will. I recognize a need to question my self and dissolve negative and useless beliefs. Your words are like a catalyst to this process and I thank you. First let me respond to your comments and questio...

Re: Alcholism in the family. Any experience?

Just a suggestion, but next time you see her, could you try imagining you will never see her again, that this one moment is the only one you will ever share with her?

Re: Awareness vs. Brain

Sorry for the confusion, I am by no means recommending that challenge, that was what I needed. That was my proof. Yours could be in just realizing that if you realize your thinking, that is awareness. But you cant think awareness.

Re: A new belief?

"If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him" You know, I have never really enjoyed that saying. I think I'd rather just say hi and walk along. Your path is your path, enjoy it That is some advice I can resonate with. Currently my path includes listening to teachers who have messages I like. I enj...

Re: A new belief?

I wasn't suffering that much, especially not as much as others I've read about on this board. I was actually on my way up from being only mildly depressed. I minored in philosophy in college, so I had been in a search for truth since I was a kid, and none of the philosophies I read about rang with ...

Re: Fighting to be free

If you dont volunatarily give in to this, how could you ever enjoy this life to its fullest. "Who" can voluntarily give into it? Only the one who hasn't yet. Here's the deal with life. At first, lifes great (as a child), then life stinks more or less ( as an adult) whats the difference? you start j...

Re: Need Advice about career - please help!

I would just quit worrying about it, and assuming I am better than the "others" I'm trying (so hard) to help. If there is doubt then you need to work on you. Why would the entire universe bring you somewhere you didnt need to be? Quit trying to run the world and just be part of it. Then everything y...

Re: Awareness vs. Brain

Yes, I have proof the brain is neccessary for this form, but not for my being. I'll make it quick, I tried to OD on acid one time, I took 37 hits, and totally lost my mind. My body went into shock, my mind just kept screaming and I mean loud but through it all I watched it and somehow I was at peace...

Re: Is fear a present feeling?

Just a suggestion, but before you get distracted with your emotions shouldn't you first stop believing everything you think? ET even says "where there is disagreement between thought and emotion, know that the thought is a lie" Emotions are just the bodies reaction to stimulus. Eliminate unneccesary...

Re: Similarities between christian baptisim and enlightenment?

Life is as it is and the mind tries desperately to explain it, thats why every religion says something different but all point in the same direction. Now that youve seen the life you could have, baptise yourself anew every morning, and the kingdom of heaven will be here now

A new belief?

What does every teacher mentioned and quoted have in common? What they were pointing at. The end of suffering. Thats all, nothing more. It was not a new belief system, or something to try and understand. It was and always will be the elimination of things not the accumulation of new and better ones....

Re: Losing it all

Yes, but the words point to the truth. Have you ever seen the 10 Bulls of zen? That is what I mean by mastering the mind. If you dont put thoughts in your head, why are they there? If there is something that needs doing it will not come as thought. It will be spontaneous action. In a head full of so...
