Re: Talking About the Future in Conversations? Excessive Thinking After Movies/Social media

Welcome to the forum liyat21. in conversations with friends is it best to stop talking about the past/future? I know I can’t change what others say, but should I be careful of my responses not to respond with a story about the past or future? I recommend you avoid thinking in terms of 'shoulds'. A b...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

I've just read a post from a few years ago on this forum. A young man from India (I believe), who was suicidal. He seemed to be say a lot of things that I am thinking, too. I think it was WebWanderer who was encouraging him to explore what makes him happy. He asked him, does he enjoy nature? Or hel...

Re: Need Some Help... Professional Crisis and Presence

But maybe the word desirelessness is not the right one; by it I mean a state where I just want to be doing whatever I'm doing at the time or I just want to seat and meditate or I just want to contemplate the surroundings. That would be presence. There is a type of meditation called ' true meditatio...

Re: Need Some Help... Professional Crisis and Presence

It's been almost a month since I quit the job and I had been doing my best to take care of myself, get healthy and rise my consciousness level again. I've been successful into reaching that great state of joy and peace and desirelessness - not 24h a day, but I can keep it for some hours... ...But I...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

I think you might have hit the nail on the head. I'm not a religious person. I do believe that when we die, unfortunately, everything just goes black. Our bodies rot and decay into next to nothing. I don't believe that our spirits lives on. I don't believe in life after death. When the sun eventual...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

Pabl. I've read your post and realize that you don't understand my message about the importance of experience because our frame of reference is quite different. I've tried to express it to you in terms that would be meaningful to you but you don't yet see the context in which it makes sense. I've be...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

Do you think that ET loves Kim? In the traditional sense of 'love'? I know you can't speak for him. He just seems so emotionless to me. Also, I don't think that is in one of his books. But I am certain that I saw him say it on a video on YouTube. Knowing the teachings of ET that I do, I think you a...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

I don't know what is real at the moment. Even emotions. Like love, for instance. Isn't that a construct, ultimately? Do I actually love something, or is it my ego? I don't know what is real and what isn't. This girl I thought I liked, I would have jumped in front of a gun for her. I adored her that...

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

If nothing is real, and nothing matters, why carry on? I see what Tolle and others are saying. Nothing really matters. Education is pointless. Relationships are pointless. Emotions are pointless. I get it. I don't believe you do get it. While it may be true that no 'thing' is real, there is more to...

Re: Anyone recovered from Severe Anxiety?

Thanks again. Its just when I try to observe and not judge my brain or ego says "you're not doing this right, you can't do this, this isn't going to help, you're never going to get space in your thoughts." Crazy on how strong it is. It keeps doing this. I guess it wants me to give up. Be curious an...

But I just don’t know how to let down the fight or the resistance.
Be curious, while free of judgment. It's not right or wrong, just things happening. And be forever patient. You'll be glad you did.

Re: Can anyone help me, please?

Pabl, I know there are lots of suggestions in this forum, and in the consciousness literature, toward dissolution of ego. I have a little different take. Feel free to read my posts. There are lots of them in many threads. I'm not one that advocates the path of killing ego. My suggestion is to know e...

Re: Single mother awakening

Maybe you could give me some pointers, anything.... Could you please advise ? One of the greatest assets in life is to cultivate a sense, a genuine feel, of appreciation. Gratitude of course is beautiful, but it's different that appreciation. Gratitude is a response to something given. Appreciation...

Re: Anyone recovered from Severe Anxiety?

Hey everyone. Today was quite difficult. Bad thoughts and a feeling of sadness and fear being thrown at me left and right while I tried to observe and accept. It’s scary how my mind is throwing all of this at me. Maybe it gets worse before better. I would suggest that you keep this interest in mind...
