Re: just became homeless... real life test...

That is such wonderful news! Well done you, for accepting so much of the situation whilst freeing yourself from it. I wish you well in all lifes circumstances, and yes, these episodes deepen our empathy and humanity which brings us so much closer to the peace and joy that we are. Much love to you, n...

Re: just became homeless... real life test...

Hallo mate, I won't ask how you are doing, because it is so bloody obvious that homelessness is a pain in the arse. Excuse the lingo, but somehow 'blinking flip' fails to convey the empathy I have for you and your situation. I had my first homeless stint when I was 14 on account of my "home" which h...

Re: Loss of interests with new found inner peace

Hello Pierce, But first I must thank Foxtrot for the wonderful quote. Right, lets try that again. Hello Pierce, Yep, been there myself. Months of bliss, freedom and joy. Very nice. Until one morning I awoke and it had gone. Something had sort of snapped back out of place inside me. But then I felt a...

Re: The Age of Awakening

Mistral, you have made such an important point here. For years I wrestled with my ego using the weapons of the ego to try and do so. I resented resentment, was frustrated about always being frustrated, angry with my anger even. Until one day I realised that one cannot conquer the ego. Its impossible...

Re: The Age of Awakening

Wise words. Although I would perhaps suggest we have a loving attitude to our own pain whilst finding the pain (and attendant suffering) of others a matter of compassion and helpfulness to reduce that pain wherever possible. Deciding to transform ones own attitude to pain is one thing. To apply the ...

Re: I find myslef returning to negative thoughts.

Give the feeling of...exasperation, frustration, agitation or whatever is going on when you realise your mind has wandered love. It is impossible for any of those states to be loved and for them to remain as they are. they will always transform into the love that we bring to them. That's because of ...

Re: Best/Worst Candidates for Enlightenment

Gangaji came out with a brilliant line as regards searching for peace. "Search for peace and you will find a search." The very act of searching destroys the peace for which we search. Yet the impetus, the motivating force that drives many of us can be anything but peaceful. I suppose (in my own case...

Re: Define Enlightenment/Define Awakening

Oh a lovely story in this regard, about what is awakening in the sense of what we need to drop, comes from Japan. Yep, its a Zen story, and one I love. An elderly Zen master lay dying, surrounded by his senior monks and well-wishers. At his side sat the one individual who was to take over in the rol...

Well, I don't know about you lot, but my piles are playing up, and I assure you not even Buddha would have reached enlightenment without a little rubber ring. And that is why I am serious.

Re: Hanging out in Emptiness

Hi Lucy, Just to add to what Kiki pointed out about the swing from form based identity to emptiness experiencing itself as emptiness... My own swing towards the latter was greatly helped by non-judgement, or acceptance. Because if I did not judge, then I did not condemn. Not least the judgement and ...
