Re: What is it to watch the watcher?

Yes I think your right! You are conciousness all the other stuff is just arising within you (including the watcher). So then you don’t have to do anything other than know this to be so. Although watching your thoughts may be a good technique to help you realise this knowledge. Ie that you are free o...

Re: Single

Thank you Tomtom1. I have only just read your response and it has come at a much needed time. You are very sweet to reply. I was meditating but lost my way over the last few months. I do believe this will help. You are right in what you say. I am looking for a relationship and children one because ...

Re: What is it to watch the watcher?

How can you watch the watcher if you are the watcher? :D
That would just go on into infinity. Who’s then watching the watcher of the watcher?

Re: A Spira short video really worth watching

Glad you enjoyed. :-) Spira is not for everyone. He's soft spoken and seems to be very in the head, leading from theory. But, actually, I think pretty much the opposite is true. He sees everything within the framework of awareness, and awareness is as real/factual as it gets for him. Yeah he’s a di...

Re: A Spira short video really worth watching

Very eloquent! I really like him. Has a very clear way to presenting things. His books are also good. Keep meaning to go to one of his meetings in the UK but never seem to get round to it!
That realisation that surrender isn’t something you can do.

Re: Single

Hi Tulip! I am in my 30’s and single (a guy though) and I know lots of people of both sexes in their 30’s who are still single. It’s really not that uncommon these days (although I do sympathise with your views). 1st thing I find useful is to ask myself; why do I want a partner and kids? Is this to ...

Re: Could someone explain this "love" pattern to me?

One before being conscious and the one after. Now only stage II subsists after a bit of awakening. Must have been weird living and not being concious? :D :lol: sorry I couldn't resist that :wink: In all seriousness I used to have the same problem. Eventually I worked out what was going on. It all s...

Re: Mental states in a conscious afterlife

We see the world in a very different way :D and that's no bad thing. But your right it's going round in circles and I am not good at explaining but I suspect one day you may see for yourself what I was trying to get at. Good luck with whatever your trying to find :wink:

Re: Awareness vs. Brain

Thanks all for your advice! I agree with what epiphany55 suggested: focus on here and now. But I dont understand why all of these spirit teachers unanimously consent to the concept of one universal consciousness, although the statement is so controversial that our ordinary folks will lose faith in ...

Re: Do things get worse before they get better?

I am not awakened I'm on a journey seeking it. My advice, don't seek it, because you'll just end up chasing the conceptual idea that you have built up in your mind, which in turn you'll never find. I'm not sure what you mean by that. If I don't seek it I'll just stay the same, miserable and unhappy...

Re: Do things get worse before they get better?

I am not awakened I'm on a journey seeking it. I have just noticed small improvements in myself. I still suffer just a little bit less now. I would love to have no fear when facing external hardship but it's hard especially with small children who's welfare I am also responsible for. My question is...

Re: Schizophrenia and being in the now - is it possible ?

Hello everybody, A while ago, I read the power of now by Eckhart Tolle, and since I'm a huge fan of the people who are in the now, and spiritually awakened and enlightened(I have the ability to recognize them), I was wondering whether I could become like them eversince I was a kid. I'm 25 now and I...

Re: Mental states in a conscious afterlife

Sorry took me some time to reply! :D My first question is why can't 1 and 2 be the same thing? Do they really have to be separate or different from each other? Are the rock and the living thing that sees it made out of different things? On a fundamental level? Even if you forget spirituality and loo...
