Re: The Sound of Silence

Sort of like crickets, but the thing is, the volume can vary quite a bit, and it's always available if you listen for it. I'm sure there's some sort of physical explanation, "Sort of like crickets" resonates with what I hear as well. Personally I doubt the explanation is entirely physical, or I wou...

Re: Humility and Awakening

Hey Andy, I can certainly relate to the first paragraph, but it's not the Veda's that suddenly seemed familiar, but rather, this whole facet of culture that I'd neglected as uninteresting that had to do with spirituality generally. There's actually plenty of modern media material starting from way b...

Re: The Sound of Silence

I've had dialogs with other folks into meditation about what we've described as a "universal sound" that we can attune to when things get quiet. Sort of like crickets, but the thing is, the volume can vary quite a bit, and it's always available if you listen for it. I'm sure there's some sort of phy...

Re: How can we do our bit for spreading awakening?

Lately, I've bee thinking of putting together a powerpoint presentation on the topic and seeing if there might be a venue to present it. I guess I'm following the "If you build it, they will come" philosophy :D Love to see it, maybe andy can pull strings to get you a spot at SAND. If you're worried...

Re: How can we do our bit for spreading awakening?

RT - I run a Meetup group in my hometown, but haven't had a meeting in a while. An odd group showed up at the last meeting. I try to be sure everyone who wants to speak can do so, but I stop them at three minutes for their first comment until everyone who wants to speak has spoken. Expect lots of e...

Remember to forget, so you forget to remember, what you thought you knew, that wasn't true. :D

Re: Who or What?

in the silence, feel it now forget who, what why or how in the stillness, there you'll know what never moves and always so on the shining pathless path the laws and limits fade and pass during free fall, be the space only truth leaves any trace a joy that words can never say is what you'll find on a...

Re: Chasing the High

The weakness of the English language in this case can be characterized as an unexpected lottery ticket. :D There are many facets to that cultural miliue you refer to, especially if we include the last 80 years of nonduality in America and Europe. But the invitation into literal silence and stillness...

Re: Chasing the High

Thanks for the description. Very interesting. Yes, to be clear, I referred to that empty and joyful anticipation as a relaxed "awareness of awareness". That's the reason I sat down on the bench to begin with, and why I kept going back to it: to sort of reconnect with what was a gradually fading stat...

Re: What Determines Value?

And I would add to that most excellent list... appreciation. Appreciation seems as close as one can get to unconditional love in this environment. Appreciation is love without expectation. Uniquely different from gratitude in that it is not so much thankfulness as it is approval. This is life... in...

Re: Chasing the High

Thanks Andy ... do you mean you literally fall asleep when that happens? Google gave me no love on that Sanskrit term but just knowing there's some writing on the topic from that culture is enough to pique my interest. What led me to seek out other's input on the subject is what seems to me to be th...

Re: What Determines Value?

How would you define a valuable life? Or what makes a life valuable? We look around and see others in all manner of unique conditions, from rich to poor, from healthy to sick, from famous to unknown, from smart to not so much. Then of course, there is our own unique life conditions. What then, is t...

Re: Chasing the High

Hello everyone. Some of you might remember me from years ago or from having intermittently popped in and out of the forum. To all of my past internet friends, hope you are doing well. :) A topic recently came up elsewhere, and it occurred to me that this forum is likely one of the few places where m...
