Re: Lucid Dreaming as a Portal to Higher Consciousness

Thanks for the report Pureland. That sounds really exciting. Feel free to update your experiences and progress. I'm not convinced that lucid dreams, OBE's and NDE's are the same thing. I do see them as closely related and elements of a larger consciousness reality. NDE experiencer's for one example,...

Re: The Ego, acceptance and an existential crisis

Welcome to the forum. You've described a situation that I'm somewhat familiar with. My upbringing was sub par by my estimation, being left to my own accords within an environment of emotional neglect and precious little supervision. I hated being a child and that spilled over into a decision never t...

Re: Thoughts

When I'm having a conversation with some and listening to them talk, do their words become my thoughts? I would suggest generally no. What likely happens is that their words don't so much become your thoughts, they become something you think about. What I mean is when people speak there is context ...

Re: Unfortunate doubts

The video is good, but it leans toward intuition vs thought. The intuitive knowing that Kim points to arises in that mentally silent presence. It's worth the watch. The mind is always going to be actively searching for answers. I suggest you sit in silence, after a few moments of connected breathing...

Re: Unfortunate doubts

Hello markf189. Here is the way I see it. If you are unhappy, it is a strong indication that ego is in effect. Thought plays an important role in our lives. The thing is to know thought and to know presence for what they are. Thought is valuable as a tool. It becomes problematic when it becomes an i...

Re: Our uniqueness

There are many ways by which violence expresses. The more obvious physical ways, and the many subtle ways. One of the subtle expression of violence especially during the use of language is excessive usage of the "I" and the "you" , usually accompanied with pointy fingers. I am not even mentioning t...

Re: Our uniqueness

What comes to mind in the recent part of this discussion is the seemingly abuse of the word 'one'. What I get is an attempt at avoiding an acknowledgement of self. Or maybe I'm just not getting the point. I have often asserted that there is a distinction between the identification of what 'one' thin...

Re: Question about form

WHY DO WE HAVE FORM? It's a good question. My sense is that through form, whether physical or some other expression, offers unique opportunities in interaction and thereby experience. Form is a type of individuation. Combine that with thought identification and you have endless possibilities in int...

Re: Does climactic thinking serve any good purpose

That is an interesting matter to consider. Generally speaking I lean toward the movie theater approach. That is to recognize that what is on screen is a life drama, that as an observer, I'm not so drawn into the emotional ebbs and flows that are the theme of show. From the observer point of view it ...

Re: Please help me

We have all made decisions in life that, in looking back on it, wasn't reflective of our best intents and efforts. That's just an element of life living with a limiting understanding as we all have had to do. What is important is that we learn from it as best we can and not let it negatively affect ...

Re: Question about concepts

What is the easiest way to disidentification with the pain body or the mind , emotions? If you wish to dis-identify with something, treat it with indifference and move on to something you prefer. The things that arise in our consciousness are only as important as we make them. What does it means to...

Re: Compulsive/Analyzing behaviour

Understand, my answer is just my take on it. Everyone is capable of finding their own best solutions to the matters that concern them. In truth, it is far better to get your insight and direction from your own inner guidance. That said... Our purpose here is the exploration of life and being through...

Re: Compulsive/Analyzing behaviour

Letting go of unwanted stuff effectively is born of the quality of indifference. First is understanding the distinction of what we want vs what we don't want. When thoughts arise that influence you toward negative and distracting imaginings, consider them with indifference. Such as: "that is an idea...

Re: I have trouble forgiving my gf and moving on.

Alphie, if we genuinely love someone, we want what is best for them. And if we love ourselves, we want what is best for ourselves as well. Not what we 'think' is best as defined by ego, but what truly is best. From a larger life perspective, we likely don't know what that best is when only considere...
