Re: Another Self-Inquiry thread

First, this might come out as harsh or unpolite. But that is not my intention. Consider this (not saying it is the truth), that self-enquiry does not work for you. At this phase, right now. That the Universe does not care one yota about your process, your methods, your goal, your expaction for resu...

Another Self-Inquiry thread

Hey guys! My previous thread on this same topic got great answers, but I am still finding I am coming to the same points repeatedly, still feeling like there is something left to realize. I know that many will jump on that point and say something like - "The very thought that there is something to r...

Re: Subtle sound in the head

That's so weird, I get exactly the same thing! I come to a certain point in self-inquiry whereby I've negated objects like the body and mind, eventually coming to a sense of nothingness whereby the mind is completely blank and there is just this buzzing that gets louder as the mind gets quieter... a...

Re: so I just read a New Earth

Amorbis, as I've previously asked you (and you've dodged the question before), please describe this realization or awakening. All of your posts are so vague and make so little sense, it leaves people confused as to whether your just fooling yourself or your just a troll. I know this sounds harsh, bu...

Re: life purpose/fear

Sighclone, do you actually think self-confidence is necessary? I for one think its just another idea that can be seen as yet another hurdle to some seekers. E.g 'i must be confident before i can know what i really am.' chances are if your somewhat invested in this 'journey' anyway you know that to s...

Re: Feeling bad

So while the end of suffering might be an accurate description for someone looking backward, it doesn't do jackshit for someone looking forward. I like this, it all depends what stage you are at. It's relatively easy to face our feelings, but a lot of average people would reel back in fear from the...

Re: What to 'do'?

You are very fond of quoting Eckhart. May I suggest that you instead of quoting Eckhart all the time, try put it into your own words. And also listen to what others have to say here. There is wisdom in many words of all members here. To summarize to what you quoted: What Eckhart is saying is that e...

Re: Why didn't Eckhart Tolle just stay on those park benches

He just felt like the time had come to change things up a bit.

Does it matter? More mind stuff.

Re: Would a conscious person want to do anything?

What is the point in anything? Well, not much! But who cares? Can you not see how this is just another mind fixation? A distraction? People ask questions all the time like "What will happen if I wake up, will I lose my job because I feel like I don't need it anymore?" Etc (forgive me if this seems l...

Riken,

Try and put aside all attitudes, opinions, judgements, beliefs about "Ashley72" and "Kutso" & "Eckhart Tolle". Just read the words deeply..... meditate on them. If you can do that impartially...this question may disappear.
oh dear... Haha

Re: What to 'do'?

Hey Riken, seems like you are chasing what somehow found me, though I didn't want it! Has been going on for a few days now, this constant awareness. It seems so simple.. who knows when that final wake up will come for you, but I do have a feeling that any kind of forcing will only hinder it. How co...

Re: What to 'do'?

When i use consciousness here - it refers to a higher state of consciousness, one that watchers the thoughts with space around them. When I refer to "unconscious" labelling - that is a lower state of consciousness - a state that identifies only with thoughts. There is no space around the thoughts i...

Re: What to 'do'?

Hey. I don't think it's necessary to split the forum up like that, whats the point? Don't often see many disagreements, just bits of confusion here and there, some things being lost in translation and dodgy advice being given, but that is the nature of the internet! We are all here on a forum, total...
