Re: Body awareness

I hope the translations will do for the quoting. 'Until now almost no one has understood these fragments or hidden meaning of certain myths, and the believe that 'you are not the body' is still universal, which leads to denyal of the body and attempts to escape to it' (Pon, p 105); 'Do not fight ag...

Re: Body awareness

I agree with you end. That kind of raises a red flag for me too. Maybe Zizitop can provide page number and exact quote he's referring to.

Re: What happens after enlightenment

You didn't upset me at all aquarius. I'm not protecting any sacred cows here. I'm just curious and asking questions about why you think there is little to no mention of astrology in the vast data bank of NDE/OBE reports - reports that go into great detail about the environments chosen for birth from...

Re: What happens after enlightenment

Gullibility has been humankind’s weakest point for a long time. The politician Paul Joseph Goebbels, 29 October 1897 – 1 May 1945, was the Nazi Minister for Propaganda from 1933 to 1945. He was one of Adolf Hitler’s closest associates and most devoted followers. Nothing describes the cause of our w...

Re: A Hi-Tech Spiritual Commune.

Bigbuddha2, please get off your soap box. It doesn't sound particularly 'enlightened'. If you have something to say about the development and growth of consciousness, please say it. Spiritual growth is possible in most all living environments and scenarios. But political attacks on systems you disag...

Re: What happens after enlightenment

Thanks for your response aquarius. If you have followed my postings here you know I have written extensively on NDE's and OBE's. I think having awareness of the larger context of life is quite valuable when addressing the challenges of our human experience. In all my years of study however, I have f...

Re: What happens after enlightenment

I believe that life is long a long drawn out evolutionary journey that takes every human being, without exception, lifetime after lifetime through every sign and house of the zodiac. Isn't the zodiac you refer to a rather small local physical environment to focus on when compared to the galaxy as a...

Re: Struggling after experiencing some moments of presence

After becoming aware of the self-talk and ego as something that happens without me consciously making it happen, my reaction to it has largely been resistance and a sense of being invaded by an enemy. This resistance is automatic, like a defence system that I don't know how to shut off. I gave you ...

Re: Struggling after experiencing some moments of presence

But when Echart Tolle, for instance, talks about how the ego "loves" this or "fears" that, or is looking for an opportunity to do this and that... I think when you take Tolle's statement as referring to a 'perspective' built of identifications and beliefs about self and life in general, it makes mo...

Re: Struggling after experiencing some moments of presence

I have read of some similar experiences, and the explanation usually offered is that this is the ego struggling to survive. This is something I find very hard to accept. I tend to agree with you on this. The ego isn't some separate conscious being hidden within our minds. The way I see it is that t...

Re: A Hi-Tech Spiritual Commune.

Osho has been dead for thirty years. You surely know this. So who is leading his commune now and does it even still exist? If it does, why don't you go there? There’s no commune on this planet nor has there ever been one like the Osho commune. "No commune on this planet" is a pretty sweeping stateme...

Re: A Hi-Tech Spiritual Commune.

Advertising? I’m trying to provide a way of life away from advertising and capitalism hopefully getting some enlightened spiritual people to support it. As a non profit spiritual commune it would never be owned by anyone. The issue is that you are advertising in this forum in an effort to get other...

Re: Desire vs. surrender

Welcome to the forum Lippsmy. I think most of us have had this issue at one time or another. Probably many times. I'll tell you how I work with it and maybe you'll find it helpful. The choice between following our desires or surrender is.... both. It's a matter of context. My perspective is that we ...

Re: lost and wondering when direction comes from presence

Of course you know that no one here can fix this for you. We offer pointers, and maybe some personal anecdotes of experience, but it is incumbent on each of us to walk our own path. Right now you are gaining experience in non-decision, which is a kind of decision in its own right. Everything has val...
