Re: Infidelity

Thanks for the guidance. Your responses have allowed me to open my eyes a bit more. It amazes me a little bit how easily it is to be able to pick up my situation. Jen: You are absolutely right about my expectation and reality being completely different and I see this better now. I would constantly s...

Infidelity

As with most threads under this topic, I'm hoping to receive some advice and insight to my current situation. I appreciate any thoughtful response especially since right now I feel like I have a lot of noise in my head. I will try to hit only the important details. Recently I have just come back fro...

Re: Living among the unconscious

Is it so wrong to have the desire to help others achieve higher levels of conciousness? When your motorcycle is in disrepair, you'd want to fix it. Not necessarily because of egoic fulfillment but because you genuinely care about its' well being. The peace of mind you'd receive after restoring your ...

Re: Living among the unconscious

snow, I am humbled by your response. In an effort to extract what you were trying to convey, I will try to dummy it down for myself. :oops: There is a tendency for constant re-evaluation of both consciousness in others and one's 'self' on the path to awakening. Thus why we slip into old habits of mi...

Re: Living among the unconscious

Often these days when being aware of this inner stillness I become simultaneously aware of the effortless awareness that is the whole, then any 'efforting' regarding listening is let go of and absolute unity is experienced with all. The interaction gets kind of fun then and humour seems to seep int...

Re: The uselessness of attachments

Sometimes I like to play the bad guy :twisted: What happens when you are on the receiving end of attachment? When someone is so mentally and emotionally attached to you, you sense that almost all action/non-action will cause a reaction of said person? What do you do if someone you love develops a me...

Living among the unconscious

I am starting this thread with the intent to focus primarily on interpersonal relationships. I am interested to understand how others typically deal with situations in which they find themselves immersed amongst deeply unconsicious individuals. In one of ET's teachings, he says to find your inner st...

Re: Why does the EGO exist?

My take on the ego is that it has emerged as a species and individual survival tool, much like the opposable thumb was 75 million years ago. In terms of answering the question as to why the ego exists (for the sake of mankind), I would also second that it is very much a survival tool in today's ego...

Re: Four Steps to Awareness

When one is more aware of his emotions, he or she tends to become less emotional. But does someone who has awakened feel emotions? Secondly, being aware of one's awareness - now that sounds tough! :lol: From the sounds of it, it would be like moving your attention and stillness to something specific...

Re: The Mind

Using the Mind and not letting the Mind use you. The Mind is undoubtedly an invaluable tool but credit for all things should not be attributed to it. The Mind gives us an inclination to turn things into recoganizable form. Forms that allows us to comprehend the world around us. To make sense of what...

Re: Eckhart on Karma and Teaching

Thanks for the thoughtful response Andy. And props for getting my username (How did you know!?) :lol: Honestly, I was intently looking for a way to somehow justify unconscious conditioning. But when it comes to consciousness and that timeless realm of the Now, karma simply has no place. What does in...

Re: Sexual Energy

it's cool though... you just have to ride the waves. Ride the waves indeed. Can anyone recall living through periods of increased intense sexual energy? Where you are so sexually charged, that your senses start to become more acute and your 'giddiness' starts to influence your behavior a little bit...

Re: Eckhart on Karma and Teaching

Oh, and I hope no one takes issue with me raising questions in regards to teachings from ET.

I really value his teachings and sometimes I let my mind wander when reflecting upon them.

Re: Eckhart on Karma and Teaching

Unconscious conditioning: I'm gathering that this refers to those intellectual thought patterns that continuously occur as people interface with stuff. When someone sees something, karma produces that tendency intellectualize that thing and turn the relationship between the person and that thing int...
