Re: What is life like after awakening?

The awakening has just started here. It feels like life just happens, no matter what my thoughts about it - so thoughts are not taken so seriously and a feeling of playfulness like its a playground after 5 years of serious searching meditating phew! Questioning, inquiring still happening but I know ...

Re: Uglyness and the social life of a 19 year old

I like all the replies here - very nice! I felt the same growing up and was bullied constantly due to not fitting in and being ugly as I was called. My beautiful parents said to me that there is a whole world out there to explore and people to meet you will find your place. And so travelling in Indi...

Re: I've battled my pain body for a decade, I need help!

Dear meetjoeblack I understand the black pit where it looks you are stuck forever and the world seems hostile. I was suicidal up until very recently until an oppening happened - it really felt like the end and the inner dialogue was one of 'i just can't take it anymore'. So don't give up, this doesn...

Re: Is this the pain body? Not sure what else it could be.

Hey Midnight.
If I can suggest something - how about finding a qi gong master. I have found this to be very helpful in my experience. I never knew what it felt like to be fully in my body before I started this. Accupuncture was also helpful.

Good luck

Re: Overwhelmed

Just to say that I really appreciate the helpful replies. I am just utterly exhausted so I will reply properly when I can. Midnight - to concentrate on the breath that was really helpful. I wasnt consious of any self enquiry thought but just a continual move to try and find myself and then panic. Bu...

Re: Overwhelmed

Mind stuff - the self enquiry is just going round in circles, the enquiry is just being answered with another thought. Im also seeing that Im trying to seek and grab onto a empty state which is also mind stuff.

Re: Overwhelmed

The self enquiry just seems mind-stuff now - I actually feel physically sick and intense panic when I try to follow enquiry now.

Re: Overwhelmed

Some guidance from a spiritual counsellor or maybe some energy work - Im not sure really - Im open to other people's experiences and personal recommendations.

Re: Overwhelmed

What did I find: My friend was doing some pointing with me. I couldnt find myself outwith the mind. What concerns me now is trying to find help with the turmoil and distress that Im experiencing and trying to ask and find 'who is the one in distress' just causes more turmoil so that has to wait.

Overwhelmed

After a lot of self-enquiry the last few months I'm now really disorientated and overwhelmed. I constantly feel that Im trapped in my body and a feeling of panic all the time. Like Im just not comfortable 'in my skin'. Im having difficulty concentrating on anything as the thoughts seem noisy and rel...

Re: Who am I? (just answers)

Yeah self-enquiry didnt work for me either. I would ask the question but would always come up with thought.

I do find it useful now though that Ive had awakenings and the question seems to be automatic now...

Dora, yeah find whats right for you :)

Re: Questions and confusion

In reply to a PM question with request to post in here regarding letting go: I was feeling an intense pressure to awaken or see truth but of course the 'me' was 'trying' to do this. However, it was also the 'me' who was trying not to do this. I couldnt seem to just observe either. I was speaking to ...
