Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

I really think that this is a matter that everyone who is inolved in spirituality in some way needs to consider this deeply. Do you really apply what you are learning or do you hide behind spirituality in your fortress of mental superiority? Being spiritual is such an easy hobby too. It can hold you...

Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

Guys, what I realized today is that I need to get off this forum for a while! In the last half year I became a self-help/spiritual books-junkie and it does my life no good whatsoever. Yesterday I had a really bad day. I was walking arround town and whenever I interacted with people I was so in my he...

Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

Oh, and what I also realized is that sometimes you have to get what your ego wants so badly only to realize later that it wasn´t really needed at all. This happened to me in the past where I was so sure that I needed f.e. the validation of girls to see myself as a desireable man only to find out tha...

Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

Today I wrote my final exam and I feel kind of empty inside. For the last three days - all exam days- I was kind of in a weird mood where everything felt off. Here´s the thing: Whenever I had an exam in the past I would freak out the weekend before. I would catastrophize, think of unlikely examples ...

Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

Today I want to write about my father. I notice that whenever I interact with him I lose a great deal of awareness and somehow spiral into resentment, rage and fear and my whole chest-area feels tense and constricted. That´s a huge contrast to my usual daily-life because my reality changed so much t...

Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

@jen Cool quotes, although I can´t relate to it very much. :D I often have trouble with flowery imagery and writing.^^ Today, I´m thinking about my future. In a week I will write my exams. Then I wil be a certified translator and start to establish myself as a freelancer. It scares me on some level ...

Re: Regarding material manifestation

Nice Post GE. There is a lot of mis understandings of LoA. I know this first hand because I was one of those people who were so against the notion of LoA and manifesting because it sounded like materialistic hocus pocus nonsense. What happens to many of us is a realization of a world not separate f...

Re: Regarding material manifestation

My experience is that as soon as a certain desire arises in me, my life-stream starts to orchestrate people, events and opportunities for me to get what I want. You can´t unwant something that you want from the depth of your heart, so our job is to just let go and let life - which we are not seperat...

Re: Desire/Expansion/Joy/Creativity

@Enlightened

Wow, every word that you wrote could be written by me as well. :) Seems like we basically had a similiar journey and can now reap the benefits of aligning more and more with who we really are. I resonated deeply with all that you wrote. :)

Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

What I realized today was how connected I feel to nature now. Simply walking through these beautiful woods, seeing lakes in their stillness and animals in their natural habitat fills me with a lot of joy. It seems like I always wanted to be closer to nature because I always took walks through the wo...

Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

Yeah, I can´t remember where it was but somewhere I read the idea of a "soul-contract", meaning that before coming into this physical life in this particular body, different souls make an agreement with each other to have certain experiences together. Let´s take an extreme example, a father and daug...

Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

Yeah, but it is also kind of sad that complaining and pessimism is the default-state for most people today which in turn means that they don´t even recognize genuine joy and inner peace anymore. :( Actually, that´s what I was thinking about today because I´m so grateful to have discovered Tolle and ...

Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

@smiileyjen101 Indeed, that is something that I am working on now. I still have a hard time being in a good mood arround people who have really self-limiting thoughts and feel that life is a huge burden. It´s like I almost feel guilty for being happy. But I understand that it serves no purpose to re...

Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

Today I also thought about my spiritual journey and spiritual teachings in general. When I started out on this journey like two years ago, it was like I almost wanted a manual to just get this enlightenment-business done and be happy with myself. I approached every teaching very analytically and mec...
