Re: Advice is welcomed

hey invictus, i still sometimes fall into that paradox. Here is the key, your mind is playing chess against itself and as you might expect it always wins. Pain itself is not suffering, it is only when you mistake the pain as a problem that it creates suffering. This happens because by trying to get ...

Re: Anxiety?

hey steve, I think the question itself cannot be answered unless someone has reached a point without any anxiety. Even then a new circumstance could reveal it. Not to mention the fact that the word enlightenment can't really be defined by the mind, so who is to say who is and isn't enlightened. I th...

Re: Alien Controlling A Robot Body

I think the answer to that is in the question itself. I know in my mind that I am truly awareness, but that is just a mind made concept. I would say I truly know I am awareness, only when I am awake. When my mind has taken control, awareness once again becomes a concept/experience as what else can t...

Re: Alien Controlling A Robot Body

I guess you could say i feel the energy of awareness. There seems to be opposite energy fields of the pain body and awareness. My thoughts feed the pain body when it is active therefore I somehow focus on the energy field of awareness and it seems to spread through my body. Awareness unleashes itsel...

Re: Alien Controlling A Robot Body

Eric, Thanks for the words of wisdom. One time it felt as if the air and my body merged, but I have never intentionally tried to inhabit something other than the body. As of now I have only been on the edge of mind controlled living and awareness. I have been starting have longer periods of feeling ...

Alien Controlling A Robot Body

Hello EveryOne I have been trying to go deep into awareness for the past few hours and I am experiencing something new. Usually when I awaken I feel very alert, I can hear every slight sound and every tingle in my body. Tonight is quite different. It almost feels like I am an alien and my body is a ...

Re: Awakening

I think I need to clear things up. As far as the anonymous post, that was more of an experiment to see if any of my fellow students would be open and willing to discuss the topic of awakening. Their language used is a pretty common thing on the forum, its basically an anonymous gossip site where stu...

Re: need some guidance

hey lor6, it has a certain momentum, just like a spinning wheel that will keep turning for a while even when it is no longer being propelled. At this stage it may also create physical aches and pains in different parts of the body, but they wont last, stay present, stay conscious. You need to be pre...

Re: Awakening

Thank you for your responses! I found it quite refreshing to hear words of kindness and wisdom, rather than the usual anger of an ego. However I may have some wisdom to offer. The overwhelming opinion seems to be that when someone is completely dominated by their mind it is not wise to show them the...

Re: Awakening

I found this post to be quite helpful so I posted it in an anonymous discussion board at my school. I was curious to see if it would resonate positively with anyone who has not had previous experience with enlightenment before. I do go to a rather prestigious school, so identification with the mind ...

Re: need some guidance

dear lor6, I am truly glad you found TPON and it has change your life as it has changed mine. Before I experienced consciousness through reading this book I was extremely depressed and even the smallest task seemed too stressful to do. It is wise of you to realize that an obsession of any book is no...

Re: You Notice You Have Become Unconscious: Next Steps

thanks for the support karmarider. Something clicked today and I am more aware then ever before. The overwhelming joy is unbelievable. The key for me was to be aware of the time in my thoughts. Before Today I would watch my thoughts and before long I would get sucked into them. Now I see that my tho...

You Notice You Have Become Unconscious: Next Steps

I have been experimenting over the past week with ways to dissolve that pain body that just seems to stick around even when you watch it. After some trial and error i found what works best for me is to first concentrate on removing time from my mind. I know that is more of a concept, but if you firs...

Re: need some guidance

hey lor6, I was introduced to eckhart about 6 months ago and I have a few things I can share with you to help you stay present. One thing that helped me a lot was to find any unconscious tasks I did during the day to cover up my pain-body and then replace that task with any routine that facilitates ...
