Re: Movies Concerning Awakening

RighteousLover, I thought at first that this movie critic quote you posted was actually from the movie itself, because it applies beautifully to real life as well!

"There is never a dull moment. Although it does not have war planes crashing at every second, it still keeps your attention."

Thanks for that collection, Michael. I've really been enjoying all of the quotes you have on there, and I'm sure I'll love the additions as well.

Re: Pain Body Question

This is what makes it seem like it's not bipolar to me: "Untreated, an episode of hypomania can last anywhere from a few days to several years. Most commonly, symptoms continue for a few weeks to a few months." -webMD A shifting mood every several hours or day seems more like a simple function of th...

Re: Egoistic Uncle

Just realize that ego is resistance to what is and any movement other than complete acceptance of your uncle as he is--ignorance and all--is just the ego in you.

Re: No existence in any form after death?

I actually stopped listening to Adyashanti because of what he said about death. I almost wasn't sure if he was joking when he said it, because it came out so cryptic and haunting. A woman during one of his talks asked what happened at the time of death, and he said something along the lines of, "Jus...

Re: "I will create no more pain for myself."

"However, we ascribe that happiness to fulfilling the desire, and not to that lack of desire altogether. "

My jaw just dropped, and then I busted up laughing.

Thank you.

" I feel like there are so many people in this world are still just so hard-headed and locked up in their own world and reject everything thats different or new to them.

Re: Inner body or mindfulness?

Kate, I'm in the exact same boat as you. Ever since I found Tolle about a year and a half ago, I've made it a point to be in pretty much constant contact with the inner body, but while it definitely helps keep me from being lost in thought, Tolle says "Please notice where your attention is at this m...

Why doesn't Eckhart mention release?

I'm curious as to what Eckhart would say about release techniques for letting go of emotions such as the one on karmarider's website, Sedona Method, EFT, etc. I wonder if he would have anything to say about bringing emotions to awareness and then releasing them versus sustaining attention on them un...

Re: Image of inner body?

Feeling the inner body was much easier for me the first time I read about it a year ago, when my mind hadn't accumulated so many experiences and perceptions of it. Now feeling the inner body is a complete "technique" for me with multi steps where I have to direct my attention a certain way, then it ...

Agreed. I find his general reminder that "the most important part of meditation is to relax" to be very essential.

Re: Releasing Control

It is simply choosing not to change any aspect of the dream, and instead allowing it to be. If you are relaxed to the point of not constantly making decisions, as you say, to manipulate different aspects of experience, then there are moments when your resistance drops. Adyashanti defines ego as resi...
