Re: Self realization

Keymaster, I think I understand what you are saying. I've made a lot of progress in terms of expansion of consciousness and all that, but I think the ego actually has to be somewhat healthy in order for the expansion to complete itself so to speak. My ego still is pretty broken, paranoid, etc. In an...

Re: Sychronicity

Whoa, I will have to come back to this when I have time. Keymaster/Jason - nice to see you around again. I'm not specifically referring to the context of awakening. I don't think it's the way the videos meant it either. Discussion of awakening in those videos just sidetracked into something else. I'...

Sychronicity

I may have posted about this before. While listening to awakening videos over the years, I have sometimes run across people who mention "signs" from the universe. I think even Jed McKenna does, and he's about as blunt as they get. Some of them cite examples, such as a woman who kept trying to get pr...

The I Ching

Has anyone ever consulted it? I started learning about it probably 5 years ago, and I consult it whenever I feel like my heart is truly asking a question. Not just a question in a moment, but a question defining a period or event in my life. Every time, the answer it gives me seems to be incredibly ...

Re: Does to be engaged in thinking always = illusion?

The times that I feel somewhat awake in the aware sense, I just ask, why do we need a story? The *need* for a story really is what makes everything go wrong. Because in order to have a story, we use the mind - which is conditioned, trained to provide a certain context, whatever. And it's like a code...

Re: Does to be engaged in thinking always = illusion?

Thank you, Andy. I was gone for labor day so I apologize the long delay in getting back to you. I definitely resonate with a lot of what you posted. I wrote a response in PM, but I think I accidentally just closed it, which is unfortunate since I put a lot of work into challenging various energies I...

Does to be engaged in thinking always = illusion?

Is awakening to realize the illusory nature of thought, and to only use it responsibly? I am struggling with trying to force my organism to see "through" its thoughts, as if somehow it could go above and beyond them, and be resting outside of them rather than inside. Can only learn to think and cont...

Re: Site Being Down

I agree. This site may not be very busy, but I think it has had a good core group of users. I'm not here much anymore so maybe many have left. But I've always really liked this site.

Re: Does reality move?

Why do I need to isolate a happening? When I insist on having a past - isolate an instance of happening - I rely on my mind. But my mind is fucking damaged, yo. As an organ, whatever underlies it, is fucking damaged, badly. So no matter what image of the past I get, its horrible. So should I just sa...

Does reality move?

Still trying to understand time. Organism is sitting on the floor, wants to understand time. Sitting on the floor isn't enough, goes into mind - only option it had other than sit there and not understand time. Could reality be a block? Could our idea that life travels from our birth through life unt...

Re: How do you give yourself unconditional love?

As I perceive it, worrying about giving ourselves "love" is removing love from our lives. Friday morning, I woke up. I had planned to "be present" Thursday night, but wasted time on the internet instead and fell asleep without meditating for even 2 minutes. Upon waking I instantly thought about this...

Are most claimed awakenings actually false

I am a pretty cynical guy, and assume that most people who claim to be awakened are either 1) unscrupulous and do not honestly seek truth (I have this feeling about Bentinho Massaro, personally), or 2) do not have the discerning power, or the willingness, to cut down every last illusion that isn't "...

Help "finishing the path"

I apologize if this post is too long. I want to give an update on my state of being. The first paragraph tries to explain where I am at spiritually. The second explains how I need to move further, and the problems that are arising in my life. At 29 now, I feel like I've come a long, long way. But th...

Re: What does 'spirituality' mean to you?

Great question, and something I've been trying to describe better myself lately. I think Alan Watts had a good quote about it. Spirituality means real life. It is to get directly in touch with the here and now, the basics, the plain. 95%+ people think it means some sort of "transcending" or somethin...

My conditioning is pretty awful

But it's the only conditioning I have. I can't create the images I want to create. I can only create what is there to be created. But something has control of this... Not "control" control, but it knows "it" is the one doing it... It's only just remembering. If it hadn't forgotten, it would have nev...
