Re: Why does this one little thing make such a difference?

Is it the same for you that it's hard to concentate when you've had a drink? Letting go of focus, concentration, and being aware of that fact can be joyful. It's weird but I feel like I can concentrate myself really good in this state. For example i was lying in bed and i saw my mind trying to esca...

I need help quick - Suddenly felt back..

Hello there, I've been studying ET's books for the past few months now and it really helped me get over my social anxiety. Until yesterday.. All of a sudden I can't look strangers in the eyes anymore, I cant even smile properly! I've had this like a half year ago but i never felt it this strong. Whe...

Re: Weird emotion that keeps showing up

Since I don't have time to sign into Skype because I'm not home yet, I just wanted to put an update here. Can you say at what times you are usually online? (timezones.. :P ) I started reading A New Earth today. When I red the part about Eckhart telling how he realised his mind was way too serious, a...

Re: Weird emotion that keeps showing up

I remember Eckhart mentioning taking LSD. He said this is not what presence is like at all. The LSD enhances sensory perception, which can also lead to a drug induced cessation of thinking, but that's not really what dis identifying is about. No but I red somewhere the 'effect' was very similar, on...

Re: Weird emotion that keeps showing up

OK I feel like I understand what you are saying about presence. But I also red something about some kind of 'LSD effect' Eckhart Tolle experiences. Is this due to his fully dis identifying with his ego? I understand that I have to accept all these repressed emotions but what is the best way to start...

Re: Weird emotion that keeps showing up

Lightner, allow me to hit you up with some goofy zen Koan's: Who is it who feels the tension? Is the awareness of the tension...tense? Who is it who wants to deepen presence? If you deepen presence, what will that be like exactly? If you were deeply present, could you not forgive yourself for being...

Re: Weird emotion that keeps showing up

Hey Lightner. What up? Difficulty with eye contact typically indicates a fear of intimacy, likely stemming from an unresolved emotional issue. Thank you for replying. Yes I think it had something to do with intimacy. This pain is now gone and i am really happy for that. However sometimes I experien...
