Re: How to accept selfish people?

It harms me So true. The way I look at it is that I'm in this life to grow in awareness and understanding. One thing that has become clear to me is that when I'm angry at another I am in a state of judging them and their behavior. That judgment is an isolating factor over an inclusive one. One cont...

Re: How to accept selfish people?

I suggest you be cognizant of who your non forgiveness and anger actually harms and who likely could care less. It's like asking 'how do I stop beating myself with a stick'. Act in your own best interests.

Re: Maybe it's not ego and just a misdiagnosis

Here's my take on it. Ego is an identity belief system. Not so much simply a conscious belief system, but primarily a subconscious one. That said, energy follows thought and is creative by nature. So as you hold thoughts and focus attention (again mostly subconsciously), that thought focused life en...

Re: Question about being present

Welcome to the forum. I suggest you don't over think this. That, after all, is the problem with staying present. The point in all of this is to know who and what you are. You can only, truly, know that through direct experience. Therein lies the point of becoming present. It's not an analytical proc...

Re: What are we?

I know WebWanderer you said that the brain is like a machine. Could you expand on what you mean? You see the brain as a receiver for consciousness. But we can be conscious outside of the body... so why do we need the brain? To limit ourselves? And how do we use it? Which part of me thinking and whi...

Re: What is personality if you aren't based in ego?

Thanks for a most excellent post. These are natural questions and concerns that arise on the path of the growth in consciousness. It may be that the questions you have are more valuable than the answers that may come. Questions after all, open mind and consciousness to a greater understanding wherea...

Re: Eckhart Tolle approach and friendships with others

Hi Yenala, welcome to the forum. Andy makes some good points. When one begins to recognize, as suggested in Tolle's teachings, that we are not what we 'think' we are, it can become isolating from one's close friends and loved ones. Most people don't understand what's going on. It's quite new as rela...

Re: positive decrees?

Welcome to the forum sammo. ...what came to me the big question of what positive thoughts and positive decrees then serve if we don't really have to have any thoughts and just live here and now without any judgment. I don't recall Tolle saying not to have any thoughts. Is that even possible other th...

Re: Difficulty with Presence

Welcome to the forum sirfan. Being fully present every minute of every day is a tall order. I'm not so sure it's even a good idea. There is much to be accomplished through our imaginings. After all, isn't that the birthplace of creativity? My personal interest is a deep and clear familiarity with pr...

Re: What are we?

...it's more what if everything is a dream. When we dream, do we chose what is happening? Do we? Yes and no. In many dreams, if not most, we seem not to be in any control. We seem to have no real choice as to the dream content. But in some dreams, we can wake up to the realization that it is a drea...

Re: The Sound of Silence

Welcome back EZFT. What you describe here sounds to me like it could be related to OBE's. From the research I've done over the years. Vibrations, sounds and even lights are often precursors to out of body experiences. These conditions usually show up in very relaxed states such as going into sleep o...

Glad I could help. Here's something from my world to consider. If I'm just a figment of your imagination, my congratulations to you on your incredible mind. You must be God then. There is after all a world of conscious experience over here that I engage in on a daily and ongoing basis. You should se...

Re: What are we?

I guess I can't really relate to the fears you have. I just know what works for me. I think maybe you need someone close by to sit with you. Maybe a professional. From my own point of view, even if everything you feared were true - that I don't know that anyone else exists, or is conscious, or is re...

Re: How do you observe in advance?

How do you control how to react when you are under emotional distress? A couple of things come to mind. First understand the source of the distress. That source is your conditioned resistance to what is, or what you fear might become. Second, get a clear sense when times are peaceful of what would ...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree. There is nothing 'momentary' or 'temporary' in a permanent change in perspective. The awakenings gained from such an experience have residual effects that last a lifetime. To clearly see that one's previous belief systems are simply programming adopted f...
