Re: Regret unconcious decisions

Dear forum, Now that I am enlightened I realise that I have been very unconcious. I have made a lot of unconcious decisions, egoistic even. I now regret decisions I have made, which I know is in turn unconscious. How do I deal with this feeling of guilt? Should I tell people I have lied to cover up...

Re: Money worries

This is something that I find bothersome. While I was never rich, I wasn't poor either. I think financial health is monumental for a better life. The money can literally buy a better education, lifestyle, and is clearly better than no money. No more is the root of evil lol Obviously, you can get too...

Re: Pain body when waking up

When we wake up, it seems like the pain body is at its worst. I try not to have breakfast with my wife because I know her pain body is so strong before she gets her coffee and some food. I am also not the nicest person when I wake up. I like to go jogging in the yard first thing in the morning. My ...

Re: Ego in marriage

I know everything in theory, so to say, but in real life i am constantly reacting automaticly, as i have learnt many years ago. Almost every day i have to eat chips or something sweet to calm my consciousness down, coz i am under stress, frustrated. And then in the morning i ask myself how i couldn...

Re: Leaf in the wind

I am currently learning about Sanskrit and the Yoga Sutras. I am learning about the 5 paths to suffering (egoism, ignorance, clinging to this life, aversion, attachment). I am coming to realize that all paths lead to failure as the Buddha said. I am still a man and I am searching for my place. It fe...

Re: Back from the Eckhart Tolle spiritual retreat 2017 in No

I like this thread and the sharing that went on in here. I am curious as to what insights came to mind once those who "stopped looking" and "seeking salvation?" I think people do this with mentors, teachers, religion, LTRs, marriage, some X factor etc. which cannot give fulfillment EVER. I am being ...

Re: Back from the Eckhart Tolle spiritual retreat 2017 in No

better yet throw it in the garbage and give up. I spent twice the amount of years you have seeking the answer, seeking salvation before I realized there is no salvation. This is it Yup. Only took 8 years for me :lol: :lol: :lol: Thing is...you really can't tell someone else. They won't believe you,...

Re: Back from the Eckhart Tolle spiritual retreat 2017 in No

I have been considering that i shoud reestructure my practicing of Echart's teachings. The main reason is that after the retreat in Norway I have left with a much clear feeling that something I am doing is not the way it should be. To start with, after almost 14 years of reading his books, watching...

Re: Back from the Eckhart Tolle spiritual retreat 2017 in No

One of the oldest saying is, "never meet your hero(s)." I was thinking about it but, I saw the price and its pretty expensive. The retreat by itself is not cheap but, its based upon a dual occupancy, plus a flight, and add-on(s). I guess when you are a 'big deal,' it is sort of to be expected for su...

Re: Leaf in the wind

I want a thank you again for that awesome video. I think i need to listen to it a few more times to fully grasp the wisdom from it, to extrapolate the essence, and substance of it all. When I wrote this, I felt like the guy who asked the question, was in a pretty chaotic place, and you could say, i ...

Re: Ego in marriage

Thanks for your answer. You are totaly right. See first ego in yourself. That happened to me today. I was fighting with my husbund something, and then i realized, it is ego in me. Yes its also in him, but can be only responsible for my own actions. So i stopped fighting, and suddenly he came to me,...

Re: Ego in marriage

i don't know much about marriage but, sex is a great outlet. I am single and wanting to learn the karma sutra and tantra. I think there are levels one can achieve single but, there are levels that the unity of marriage can bring a man and woman. That symbolism of the two becoming one is pretty power...

Re: Divorce and soul alignment

I realise that your partner is supposed to be your teacher, and the suffering is to draw you out of the ego kind. - Apolloislost There will be difficulties and negativity whether you're alone or with someone.

Re: Feel More Present nearing Breakup

I know the feeling all too well. I am single so, I crave a date or a gf. I want to get married and have a family though, I question whether I always wanted this or if I grew up having it and assumed it was the way. I am still unsure if it is the sentiment that I am after, if it was learned behavior ...

Re: Divorce and soul alignment

I have been married awhile and it’s been very difficult with loads of suffering on both sides. I realise that your partner is supposed to be your teacher, and the suffering is to draw you out of the ego kind. If all this is true - why do I want to get a divorce so I can have some peace and quiet? W...
