Re: How can I not be selfish or should I do what I feel?

So, it is my responsibility to be responsible over my emotions, also to be able to understand them as needed, and to be responsible for making my own decisions responsibly. Basically to be responsible for all of what I am, and do so responsibly. There is great power in that understanding. A note of...

Re: The Corona Virus - How doth the enlightened/conscious ones see things...

I think everyone's situation is different, although there are some common factors. What we have in common is that we are all in the same play. That is we are here to experience and interact in a physical environment and it is incumbent upon us to play by the rules of the game. There is of course, a ...

Re: If one leans left politically is it likely they are less conscious?

When it comes to politics, any political position that is steeped in hate, judgment, and/or purposefully false narratives of opposing persons and positions, is inherently unconscious of a greater reality. It is a prime demonstration of ego hardening in action. WW Just one additional note: We can tal...

Re: Dealing with unconscious people

Hey WW, if you see this... I'd welcome a constructive criticism of my words herein... :O) I like your take on it a lot. You're putting into practice the very perspective that turns challenging situations into valuable experience. When one 'creates the space' effectively as you have described, we kn...

Re: Dealing with unconscious people

Does anybody have some advice as how to stay present with unconscious people? Have you ever been to the zoo? How do you look at the chimpanzees as they interact with each other? I'm not trying to demean anyone here, only to suggest a state of mind when interacting with people who are not so self aw...

Re: How to "do it right" ?

I just want to enjoy this experience of life, is there any rulebook as to how do to it properly? How do I know if I'm doing something correctly, or if it could be done better? Perhaps these are intrusive thoughts, though I observe some guidance would be helpful. Welcome to the forum Zach. One of my...

Re: What Is Your Opinion About Ayahuasca Ceremony?

So what other things are these spiritual journeys offer that living a meditative and mindful lifestyle doesn't? Not having experienced Ayahuasca I can't fairly say. I have taken psilocybin a time or two and both have DMT as their base. The value in it for me was speed to depth and a kind of mental ...

Re: What Is Your Opinion About Ayahuasca Ceremony?

While I haven't been to an Ayahuasca Ceremony, my take is that it is far more about the experience than simply the teachings. Read all you want about the taste of an orange, but there is nothing like the actual tasting. It's the same way with most things. I've read a lot on lucid dreaming, but it wa...

Re: Still having a lot of trouble with obsessive thoughts

I don't know how to stop reacting and tensing up to these thoughts. I don't care about the thoughts themselves so much as I do the physical reactions to them. Trying to not tense up to them seems to just make me tense up more. I have no idea what to do. Please help. Thanks everyone I suggest you ta...

Re: Letting go of Spiritual Practice

So here's my 'fly in the ointment' concern. Most people make no effort towards awakening. They live their lives in the stories they tell themselves as they relate to the world around them and the experiences that come their way. Precious few actually awaken. And when some realization of greater clar...

Re: Question about feeling your emotions

I have a quick question about something I tend to get confused about. So..we know that we are supposed allow and fully feel our emotions (good and bad) Now sometimes I wonder if I'm simply letting my emotions be and feeling them, or if I'm giving them too much attention and therefore, prolonging th...

Re: How can I not be selfish or should I do what I feel?

When you say to find a way to reorganize your thinking and to be more more inclusive, is this to consider other possibilities other than what one perceives? Or, if you can give an example. There are lots of ways to do this. The important thing is that rethinking must be based in truth from a larger...

Re: Feeling of "not deserving"

I agree with Rob X. The guilt and shame are self-imposed and quite unnecessary. We are all capable of all manor of curious acts as we grow from a young age and explore the world around us and within us. It's best that we learn from the past but do not hang on to it. This moment is what matters. If y...
