Re: Going downhill

Invictus, It seems as if you're judging and analyzing waaaay too much. You even went so far as to categorize "acceptance." These are a few things the mind is good at: judge, categorize, analyze, logic-seek, grasp concepts, solve problems/puzzles. This is wonderful that we have such a tool. The suffe...

Re: Accountability vs Oneness

No fair! Those are trick questions! On Pluto, there is no atmosphere right now at that location because it is frozen and accumulated on the surface until sunlight hits it, so the weather is non-existent and, on 2/23/300, he neglected to eat breakfast because he was running late to senate. ;) RCharle...

Re: Accountability vs Oneness

There is no 'you' and 'not you.' How is there accountability if there is no "one" to hold accountable? "Bad" deeds can only be committed by the ego, since consciousness manifests deep love, joy and peace. If someone commits a "bad" deed, they are unconscious. Forgive them, for they know not what the...

"Mind-blowing"experience/situation

So the other day I was walking to work from my car and I was in an intense presence. As I looked to my right I 'saw' a pure blankness. This lasted for less that a hundredth of a second. The blankness had no color, it wasn't black or white. It was infinite in depth. It was unlike anything I've ever e...

Re: going to the mountain top, whose coming with?

In order to self-realize doesn't one need to make some radical changes in his or her life? I mean every aspect of my life just reinforces my false sense of "I". All my relationships all my doings tend to revolve around this false "I". I feel like every day we are just strengthening the illusion. Ev...

Re: Somethings gotta give

You cannot compare this to a breakthrough...you will never have that same feeling NOW. "Aha! I get it!" doesn't work for the now... in the now there is no thought or understanding. There is intelligence beyond the mind. Now can only be experienced, not understood. Try to focus deeply on what's happe...

Re: Transition stage.

Hello there, do you mind elaborating on what you meant by "Soon You will realize that you don't exist" ? What I mean is that as I connect and realize there is no separation, the Truth is that there is no "me" and "not me." No "other." The mind made person/personality doesn't exist. "You" are just a...

Re: Transition stage.

i am a 25 single male as well.... I know exactly where you're at. I spend a lot of time alone now too, I can be fully amused (like full-tooth grin and laughing) all day by holding or staring at a cup/glass/tree/ceiling/etc... but there are bursts when I do feel like doing something --these took abou...

Re: losing interest/having no personality

YES! This happens to me too. This is deep inner peace. Sometimes my mind is so shut off I don't even decipher and compute what people are saying or read words on things, just seeing the shapes and colors. You will have to use your mind in this world, but use it as a tool, then put it away when you d...

Re: Why do anything?

"Pure Awareness" is attributeless - is nothing - does nothing - no duality, no "who", no "what", no "why" - cannot be labled or described. Even "it" or "that" are misnomers - even "is". Neti, Neti. And yet, within the human experience, we sense "something" and insist on trying to describe "it"! :wi...

Re: Why do anything?

Btw how do you know that the satori you experience is not a little "drug" cussion the ego is sitting on? ;-)) The satoris are unlike any feeling, emotion, though, or dream....there is no way to describe it that the mind can comprehend. The ego just kicks in and tries to label the experience to the ...

Re: Why do anything?

The other thing I'm wondering: is all thought ego?

If I am totally present, totally observant, I find it hard to communicate with people without using the thinker to recall, associate, or speak...which is of course comes from a learned perspective.

What is your take on this, everyone?

Re: Why do anything?

Play being a saleman...just for the fun of it. No purpose, reason, or why is needed to play. Ask a child why they are playing and you will get a confused look in reply...no reason at all needed to play. P.S. Episode 44 of the podcast I produce (Out of Our Minds) is about this very topic - "Living W...

Re: Why do anything?

Thanks for the replies, everyone. I guess I'm having trouble with thought. When I'm present, there is no voice, image, sound/music of any kind in my head. When I notice myself thinking, I realize that is not me, then I almost react to it with the thought that thought is 'wrong.' Then I realize my ob...
