Pain as Motivation, as Avoidance and as an Identity...

I have focused on three observations. Pain as Motivation, Avoidance or as an Identity. First, Pain as Motivation. For instance, I heard an unfortunate sitaution where a young teen was being bullied in school and committed suicide. Thru that, a musician has written a very inspiring article about scho...

Re: Mental Perceptions. How to stay conscious?

So from my mental understanding....... true being is the ultimate state. To understand my true being is to understand true freedom from any form. To exist in formlessness and be true love/God. In this state, I will be unidentified with anything anyone says to me. Pain will not come when their are ne...

Re: Mental Perceptions. How to stay conscious?

Let's say I say "That's not what I meant. I think you are perceiving it wrong b/c that's not my intent."

Yet they are already upset so they are not listening and simply reacting to their anger by making assumptions, judging, "You're being bossy"..., etc

?

Mental Perceptions. How to stay conscious?

How do you stay conscious when someone else is perceiving something you are doing to be offensive to them? For instance, I say something a certain way and the person perceives it as rude...yet I meant for it not to be rude whatsoever. So they react with "You are....." statements and dub you to be ru...

Re: Pain.Words.

I understand. I can see it so clearly now that you mention it that way.....wow, you're right.

Honestly, it's so easy to see it now that the issue is in the past, it's hard to be present when you're in the mist of it.....

Thank you all.

Re: Pain.Words.

You are feeling hurt because what you believe yourself to be is being threatened by another. See through the illusion of who you believe yourself to be and the hurt will go away. Ask yourself "Who am 'I'?". I see that I'm not an identity. It stops me in my tracks and I stop crying or hurting or res...

Pain.Words.

Sometimes people say hurtful things out of anger/unconsciousness or maybe they mean it.
If I feel hurt by someone's judgments/accusations/dismissive-ness even though I know it's possibly reactionary, am I being unconscious?

Re: Immobile.

I'm having difficulty. I am aware of the pain body, the thoughts, the minds incessant lifestyle....but sadness wraps itself around all of these. Stay with it? I do. but it also stays. I will say this, the last two days of being the observer has gave me 'bouts of happiness (not joy..not yet of course...

Re: How Do I Protect Myself?

Hi Rachel, I agree with Sighclone. You need a place of meditation and lack of civilization and duties. There is a Vipassana 10-day meditation retreat you can attend that takes place in cycles. My partner attended this and felt some benefit from it. I myself, wish it was possible for me to attend...m...
