Re: Mortality

Heartfelt condolences Alicia, for me, the energy in the world shifts with a departure, and arrivals too. The same occurs inside us, and what we flow into the world, as you've already noticed. How someone can appear reasonably ok (albeit ill) one day, and the next the essence of them is gone. As well...

Re: Mortality

That's beautiful 'trails. Alicia hugs in your journey through this too. My mum passed from cancer last September, she did really well until the last days too, but even knowing all that we do, it still hurts to adjust. Be kind to you. Xx

winstonthebish said: So basically two questions, can one really dismiss thoughts without it being resistance? And can one be detached from someone who they already are attached to? 1. Yes. 2. Yes and no - depending on your understanding of relationship. I've mentioned in another thread I've just re...

Re: do we die? how do you understand it?

Dcdc said: In my opinion, not wanting to accept the reality of the end of the ego is the main reason for the creation of most religions. People suffered when faced with the fact that their egos will not be eternal, and used our mental projection to create imaginary worlds that continue that ego for...

Re: do we die? how do you understand it?

Webby, your 'work in progress' is brilliant, you seem (to me) to be widening your understanding to allow all the multiple awareness states to coexist without thinking one might contradict another - just yum. I smiled so big reading it :) and what a lovely thread to read, thank you all. Fiona you mig...

Re: The causal body

Hi Bronto
How does he explain it, it's not a term I've heard.
More importantly, what do you think? Where is this book taking your thinking?

Re: Awakening

RT said: Unless we suffer, we don't really surrender or become vulnerable or let go. And unless we do all that, we don't have the impetus to find our true nature. This made me wonder RT. When young children, or innocents, play or 'be' they don't even know they are vulnerable or authentic, there is ...

nice OP webby, and gorgeous poem Snow.
Loved the big wet kiss line - reminded me of a Thich Nhat Hanh quote - ...walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.

Re: NDE, Dying, Nonduality--Ted Talk

Thanks for sharing Trails. I read this yesterday, watched the Ted talk, mind wandered off... lol... It was 'missing' something, and I've realised what that was, for me. It's great that death is a part of life, and dying well, etc etc is coming out, but it's not for death's sake, it's for life's sake...

Re: Is it worth telling someone that something they did upset you?

Maybe it's worth honouring that you are experiencing upset in the moment - regardless of, and consciously free of, any expectations on any other. Whether this is ego reacting, or a recognition of your own triggers, or an unkind exchange of energy from one intending to hurt, honesty with your self an...

Re: Processing Trauma

I like how this thread has moved - there was one understanding of 'what happened' followed by a wider view of the 'situation', added to by a 'different perspective' and maybe the OP can feel a little easier about interpretations that were maybe tightly held, but maybe not seeing the 'all' of it.
