Re: Awakening

Alicia said: I've often said to people 'my life has been a process of letting goes'. Of course, the same is true for everyone, but not many are aware of it. There has been much loss in my life, but I am finding my self under it all. Lovely and so true. Unless we suffer, we don't really surrender or...

Re: Awakening

Great posts Alicia. I agree with Andy that your input is very valued. In traditional Vedanta the witness even has a name: Sakshi. Ultimately, when we want to live from the perspective of the true self, then the only way to do it is to be the witness. Alicia wrote: What I've realised is nothing like ...

Re: NDE, Dying, Nonduality--Ted Talk

Hi Jen, Good to hear from you! I thought of you when I saw the hour long interview. He talks about NDE during childbirth and perhaps that was true for you as well. I like what you say--indeed, understanding death is so that we can live without fear and better understanding of our true nature. Hope a...

Re: Hello from Plymouth, UK

Hi Kate,
Welcome back! Since you started with these teachings as a teenager, I'm curious as to how much benefit you got out of them. And yes, I can imagine at that young age, life is more about trying to figure things out.
Enjoy the forum, rt

Re: Is it God?

I don't know much about Jesus--but I expect he was self-realized. He knew he was awareness and spoke from that perspective.

Re: Is it God?

Exactly, Joe! And that awareness is YOU. You are pure being/awareness (God) plus the name and form of awareness appearing as Joe. :D

Re: Role of the mind

In Vedanta the mind is described as made up of several components like intellect and 'mind' (which interprets sense information) and memory, together which give rise to an ego-type construct (I sense). Self-knowledge (or removal of ignorance about your true nature) takes place in the intellect. Once...
