Re: NDEs

The most profound experience I've had was a dream I had the night after my father died. In the dream I, and his extended family, were at a kind of wake for him when the phone rang. Someone told me it was for me. When I answered I could hear, as well as see, my father in kind of a hospital bed. He w...

Re: Sudden insights, inspirations and ideas

Living with my father will surely be a hindrance to my spiritual progress. Like Ram Dass said "if you think you're enlightened, spend a week with your parents". I have to spend much longer.

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...he just seems stuck in his ways since the time before I was born. I don´t want t...

Re: Can't Be Present While Playing Guitar

Try letting the MUSIC possess you when you play, then it will be about the music/expression, not the ego. Surrender to the MUSIC! That's exactly what happened to me, but dijmart is right that my experience was just something that comes and goes and I shouldn't be attached to it. Onceler's simple ad...

Can't Be Present While Playing Guitar

Which seems to be the most pleasurable activity I could experience in my life.

Re: Time consists only of past and future

Thanks but now I came up with another question.

Eckhart says problems can only exist in time (past and future) but I can easily think "I don't have a pretty girlfriend now". Just an example, lol.

So what does that problem have to do with time?
