Re: Will practicing presence releieve my suffering?

If you don’t mind can you tell me when did you learn about presence/living-in-presence. It's a work in progress. Always a work in progress. For me it has come piece by piece, each adding clarity to the last. There have been more than a couple of ah-ha moments that brought consciousness expanding in...

Re: Will practicing presence releieve my suffering?

Welcome to the forum waverider . It sounds like you've got some Walter Mitty in reverse. It seems to me like you've got two primary issues. One, is the negative imaginings that you cite. The other, more problematic one, is your concern about them. The first is just thoughts. We all have thoughts - s...

Re: Who or What?

Along the lines of 'what' we are, I recently ran across and interesting, and even stunning, take on our True Nature. Of coarse we are all familiar with the reference that we are 'spirit' and/or 'consciousness', but over time these terms seem to lose some of their impact as clarifying and expansive p...

Re: The causal body

I"m not a student of Swantz so I'm speculating to a degree. It seems however, like the casual body is much like Tolle's pain body. I don't think it should be taken as something like some sort of shadowy physical body, but more like a body of knowledge - or more accurately, a body of beliefs. It is a...

Re: do we die? how do you understand it?

Webby, your 'work in progress' is brilliant, you seem (to me) to be widening your understanding to allow all the multiple awareness states to coexist without thinking one might contradict another - just yum. I smiled so big reading it :) and what a lovely thread to read, thank you all. Thanks for t...

Re: do we die? how do you understand it?

I guess what it gets down to, for me, is that I can't get my mind around the "die before you die" concept that Eckhart Tolle espouses. I totally get what you're saying here. Sometimes teachers get a bit too cryptic for their message. My take on 'die before you die' is to relinquish our attachments ...

Re: Intrusive Thoughts

Glad to hear you can feel the progress Placebo. Another helpful tool in ridding yourself of these unwanted annoyances is to laugh them off. It is a little funny when you think of the dumb things we do to ourselves with our addictive thinking. See the humor in it and you've got it beat.

Re: CANNOT cope with this fear

...i am finding it hard not to hate the life i have created for myself and its lasting impact from that trauma from 7 years ago. Change what you believe about the trauma. Change what you believe about your current life experience. It's really that simple. I don't mean to say it's easy. But there is...

Re: CANNOT cope with this fear

SamiT, no one can save you from your own creations. The good news is life starts Now. It always starts now. What will you create Now? Will you continue to feed your current creations with fear and concerns and imaginings? Or will you create something new through new ways of thinking and feeling and ...

Re: Intrusive Thoughts

I would suggest that the problem is not so much with the thoughts of gore, but with the self-judgment that seems to be linked to them. You mention a sense of contraction and tension that follows them. Therein lies the result of judgment. I suggest you begin to look at those unwanted thoughts that ar...

Re: do we die? how do you understand it?

How would the strength of the accumulated beliefs of the self-aware consciousness affect the form of the transference to another dimension of existence? Take for example, if one has a strong belief in certain Christian teachings relating to Heaven and Hell. When that one dies he/she may find their ...

Re: do we die? how do you understand it?

Don't we indeed die in the sense that our individual "I am" dissolves into the universal "I am"? Doesn't that constitute death, for an individual human being? My take is that death has several components in its unfolding. The first component is of the physical form no longer being able to support a...

Re: CANNOT cope with this fear

Well done. It's a good beginning and a very important one. Get emotional about it while at the same time relaxing into it. Feel a knowingness of new understanding. Celebrate a little and be at peace with it at the same time. Feel a deep sense of appreciation. This will help anchor it in your conscio...

Re: CANNOT cope with this fear

Okay, so make a plan. What are you going to do next? If you meditate and imagine the feeling of how great it would be to have fun and be totally disinterested in the old programing, when will you start? This is where you set a schedule and begin creating new habits of behavior and thought. Do a 15 m...

Re: CANNOT cope with this fear

SamiT, I'm beginning to wonder if you're reading my posts or maybe just skimming them. How could you ask such a question that was just covered so thoroughly? Here's what I would like you to do: Rewrite my last post in your own words what you think I meant. Cover each paragraph. Don't ask questions. ...
