Re: How not to be happy

So, Zord, you derive your happiness from the shortlived burst of pleaure that is generated from a happy thought? Well If it works for you, cool - but I think I'll stick to just enjoying what I'm directly experiencing and basking in the delicious peace that is inherent in resting as awareness. produ...

Re: Is everything we do sf serving?

I think this is a great question. And, I agree with Kutso's second point. True compassion is in the moment. Those actions are a result of knowing and understanding your own suffering, and realizing that other suffer just the same. I think that there are lot of people who attempt to do good, but ulti...

Re: Anyone knowledgeable on Kundalini?

Curious what you gotta say. I've had all kinds of weird crap going on. Pulsating energies throughout the body (especially in the head region). This ranged through mild pulsations, tingling, and at the extreme... convulsion/seizure (super scary). It still goes on, and quite honestly, I'm sick of it. ...

Re: self-inqiry .. stuck

Maybe when it becomes less than obvious about what control you don't have you will find more of the clarity and solutions that you seek. And dropping any sense of self one has does not change the reality of the nature of self. If a sense of self keeps recurring maybe there's more yet to understand,...

I really don't feel the need to add anything and that feels peaceful.

BTW, Happy New Year to everyone. :)

Re: self-inqiry .. stuck

Yet, I feel that all this efforting is really getting in the way (not to mention the exhaustion). Yes, all that effort can be very exhausting. This is counter intuitive to the mind because it's used to efforting in order to get something, but in the case of discovering one's true nature effort just...

Re: self-inqiry .. stuck

Oh yeah, and I found the pointers in Harding's closed eyes experiment to be the most effective way for that spaciousness to open up: http://headless.org/experiments/closed-eyes.htm

Absolutely brilliant.

Re: self-inqiry .. stuck

Well, I'll be damned. I discovered this spaciousness earlier this year, had been playing around in it, but had no idea that this was the I AM. I spent about about a 1.5 years dismantling the ego (fears, beliefs, desires, attachments, etc), but now I feel like I don't have much to work on. Thoughts h...

Re: self-inqiry .. stuck

Thanks for the replies guys. Just one more question...

What in the heck does Niz mean by "abide in the I AM"? Is that what you are referring to, kiki, when you say "keep returning attention to spaciousness?" If so, that's a piece of cake, and Niz may be finally be making some sense now.

Well, now this will be something exciting to play with. Thank you for the help.

Re: self-inqiry .. stuck

I'm familiar with the I AM sense being in the forehead. When you really explore it though is it a forehead? Is it really located anywhere? Does it have a form? I find that it is actually vast spaciousness, alive emptiness. Hehe, right. Yeah, when you really break it down and explore it fully, you c...

Re: self-inqiry .. stuck

walken, also the awareness has ability to focus, focus onto objects. The sense of "self" is focus? Umm.. Sorry I don't follow. As far as self inquiry goes, I started becoming real curious what I was. So I started by investigating what I am not. Thoughts, content of thought, emotion, body, etc. Some...
