Hidden true desires

Hi all, I just want to type a little about something I touched on a while ago, but it's reappeared so it took my interest. I was thinking, how when you have a motive to do something, and if you think about it afterwards and your mind starts chewing on it, and saying well maybe it was this, or that, ...

Re: Relating Music to our Feelings

Very interesting. He mentions that the harmony has just 3 emotions, and the chords/backing music has thousands of emotions. So really that's why a certain chord combination, with a harmony produces a unique feeling. And they lead to the enjoyment of the music. On a side note I used to just like heav...

An old problem

Hello all, Just recently, if I am honest I came to terms with a bag of rubbish I have been carrying with me since I was 17, where friends were imposing all kinds of judgments on me. The conclusion I came to was that they weren't looking at the fuller picture and only going by snapshots of what they ...

Angel wings energy

Hello all, I have recently been experiencing wierd mood changes. Also a transformation in the body and mind feels lighter these days. I read it up and probably got the wrong end of the stick, but read about the back end of the heart chakra, or angel wings between the shoulder blades. I had massage l...

Latest insight - Snagging mind

Hello all, I recently had this idea pop up in my mind, about how suppose if someone judges my actions and superimposes their own ideas about me on me, whether good or bad, creates their own false reality. Same also applies for me and my own ideas about others. It's like when you get a few stray litt...

On cause and effect

Hello everyone, I've been studying cause and effect lately, just thought I'd make a little post. I narrowed it down to this: In any event, there is never a single cause and effect. And further still if you take sub-causes relating to the effect then they are also simple abstractions. Any way you loo...

Latest Insight - Tendency to get caught up in terms

Hi all, A long time ago... In my main periods of anxiety, I had some sticky emotions that were very hard to manage. I could not figure out what they meant so I made this theory I called 'puzzle pieces', where you address mental loops with the realisation, that what I imagine about past actions, is l...

Re-incarnation

Hi everyone, I was just reading a load of stuff the other day and it was interesting to see one of Ramana Maharshi's viewpoints on re-incarnation. So it was basically that as long as you identify with the body, you will imagine that you will die and be reborn as another person or animal. But once yo...

Re: Need a perspective

My 2 cents There are times when people do something that obstructs you, but their intentions were good. There are times when people do something that does NOT obstruct you, but their intentions were bad. Bottom line is, you do not know what they are doing, nor do they. Someone intends something for ...

Re: writing down our thoughts

First of all, I've tried that method, when I was deeply unconscious (suffering severe [chronic?] anxiety). I don't think it can enforce the ego. If you are already in bondage with the thoughts, then it will perpetuate them. Once you have transcended the 'dramas', then you will be able to look at the...

Non conformity

Hello everyone, I found this interesting article, I've been interested in this subject on and off for a while, but this guy brought up something that also occured to me, as it included things like biological and physics (and/or the cosmic) aspect. http://nicknelson.net/2009/07/the-myth-of-non-confor...

Paradox regarding people's intentions

Hello all, This still hasn't fallen in place for me yet, but see what it means for you. Someone approaches you with good intentions, and you regard what they do/say for you as a bad intention. Someone approaches you with bad intentions, and you regard their doing as something positive. Either way th...

More pains and tingling

Hello all, Lately I've been getting the following symptoms after some release, and the asterisk (*) one is my main concern as it feels really wierd. - muscle tightness mainly in back and torso, feels like the muscles are in wavy knots - a feeling of pulling teeth, like they're being pulled inwards i...

Re: Are you compromizing?

So going by what you say Rick, conformity and rebellion are one and the same. Trapped in duality it's very easy to swing on the pendulum for one or the other. I'd like to thank you both for the posts, good topic.

Re: Are you compromizing?

I think just about everything I do is a compromize at the level of the ego. But I've loosened up on my view of the world a lot since recognising the Self. I will add to what you say by saying there must be different levels of compromise too. I'll replace comprimise with conformity. So conformity is:...
