Re: Spiritual Teacher

I personally really wouldn't know what to do without some guidance.. I think a teacher/coach is quite necessary for the majority I also found that listening to teachers speaking is (for me) the best. Reading is nice, and I sometimes write a bit about everything, but it's hard not to intellectualize ...

Re: Something all 'spiritual seekers' should watch!

Thank you Ralph, I'll remember Mooji.

Yes, I noticed this.. This (Adyashanti) is the third time that exactly when I needed it, the right teacher appeared to me..
It's beyond coincidence, and frankly it's a bit weird :P

Re: Is it my Ego that wants a Healthy Future?

There are a number of nondual-sensitive psychotherapists -- Why does he need a psychotherapist because he has Lyme Disease? If someone had told me I needed a psychotherapist, because I have MS I would have thought they were off their rocker. I think he's referring to an earlier post of mine in whic...

Something all 'spiritual seekers' should watch!

I just found a really (for me) clear explanation by Adyashanti of why many people get stuck in their spiritual 'journey'.. This is basically because of faulty, veeeeeeeeery subtle Egoic orientation of spiritual teachings (which I was having trouble with): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Fx4ymaQtgg A...

Re: Great talk by Adyashanti

I actually really like the fact that Adyashanti emphasizes that you're gonna want to DO something with your newly acquired state of consciousness. So it's nothing new really, ET talks plenty about love, inner body, connection, etc. but I think this talk could be breakthroughy for some people who are...

Re: Talents and reincarnation and so on

I personally don't think it works that way.. There are more factors that play a role when for instance you can play awesome music when you're young: - Your genes - Your upbringing - Your state of consciousness - The things you do: does every talent even get recognized? Maybe the energy of one's soul...

Re: Why do some people develop negative and disturbing thoug

When I get these unwanted thoughts, it's like there's an intruder trying to take control of my mind and we are at a tug of war over my actions/thinking. I want to change the channel and think about happy things, but it's always creeping around in the corner. Why did I choose to pay attention to thi...

Re: Is it my Ego that wants a Healthy Future?

Thanks for your quick replies dijmart! When you start to think of past/future with fear/desire then that is attachment to thought and it pulls you out of the present moment. You don't know with certainty that in 6 month you will be better therefore if you're not and you expected that, then you will ...

Re: How do your Energy Level and Conscious Brain relate to C

Thanks for the awesome replies! Correct me if I'm wrong: So the mind is actually the tool with which you can 'grab' specific thoughts that are useless/negative, so that the "I AM" knows itself not to be these thoughts? And presence enables you to grab thoughts more frequently and effectively? It's n...

How do your Energy Level and Conscious Brain relate to Csn?

Another question! I've been wondering, what role does the conscious part of our brain play in influencing and focussing our attention/awareness? Also: what role does your physical well-being and energy level play in influencing and focussing our attention/awareness? Is it possible that people whom f...

Is it my Ego that wants a Healthy Future?

Hi everyone! As I've said in my Introduction, I've been very ill for the past 3 years, and am currently undergoing treatment for Lyme disease which will take about 6 more months. I've really learned to surrender to the illness and disidentify from it, even though it's always there. However, since I'...

Hello everyone :)

Hi everyone, My name is Mark, I live in Holland and I'm 20 years old. I really enjoy Eckhart's teachings, they provided me with a huge amount of answers and insights that I desperately needed, as I've been very ill the past few years (Lyme disease). I'm now getting better very slowly, even though I ...
