Re: A lot of what I do isn't good enough for me...

i have/had a similarly behaving ego. reading it wont' do much, but sooner or later you'll realize doing anything to please "yourself" (and i mean, your judgemental ego that we all have), is just silly and is so transparent and meaningless.

It's just music. It's just writing.

Re: Confusion

My biggest confusion is "What's a thought?" If I ask myself "Am I thinking right now?" and no thoughts follow, wasn't I already outloud and thinking in my head to ask the question "Am I thinking right now?" What dialogue in my head is my awareness, and what's my ego? I almost think BOTH are my ego, ...

Re: Introverts & Extraverts

Extrovert, by far. Generally hate being alone/don't enjoy it or I get bored. I "feel good" by getting social points, but my 'happiness' is also tied by them. Tolle's teachings help kind of bring a balance to it, though I'd say.

Re: What does presence feel like?

Warmth and tingley sensations, while enjoyable and sometimes indicative of alignment, can be just as distracting as any other sensations if one is going to analyze them and seek them out as proof of awakening. They are spontaneous, not created. Hmmmm. Interesting point. Hard to throw away my attatc...

Re: What does presence feel like?

I can't answer 'cuz I'm not so sure I feel all that qualified. I think it's something that is describable, though. Based on my experiences I could def. say more than "clarity," or something like that, though. I could tell ya and what I feel, but like I said, not sure I'm all that qualified so I want...

Re: What does presence feel like?

*sigh* no un-vague answers so far. Ah, well. I think there was a really good description of some stuff in the "My Awakenings.." thread by a female poster - forget the name. That was fun to read if anyone already knows what I'm talking about. -does your body feel warmer? - do you feel some sort of su...

Re: What does presence feel like?

We've all read the definition of it, but what do you FEEL.

I don't know how else to put it. ?? :?

What does presence feel like?

-Pretty simple. What does it feel like to you? Where do you feel it? What happens to your body, your thoughts, etc.


I feel not only is it interesting to just read about and perhaps open your eyes to a few new things, but it could help me and others to recognize it as it happens.

The Am I doing it right? Thread

Hey, guys I'll keep it short (haha, it ended up being long). So I picked up Eck's PON book about a year ago. Went through it, really liked it as it kind offered a 'fix all solution' to lifes drama. I'm a person, with an ego and body pain so of course I thought it was an attractive idea. I flirted it...
