Leaving the spiritual stuff alone - getting to the root prob

I went from being depressed to reading the power of now and feeling lost in the world. I had a moment of realisation and feel I now walk the world half awake, or half sleep, depending on whether you believe in the pessimist/optimist stuff ha... Anyway I think I have reached a point where the books a...

Uni coming to an end - Where to go?

Hi guys, it has been a while since I last wrote. I had a wonderful final year at university, meeting amazing people and experiencing bliss for the first time. Now that uni is almost over for me, I know that I want to take a year out of education and work, but I have no idea where to go. Somewhere th...

Re: A Week of Bliss - Ended

Thanks xpansion. I seem to have gone back to the more peaceful state by accepting and surrendering to the way I felt at the present moment (depressed). I forget that there is nothing to change or alter.

Re: mind aware of mind?

These posts made me realise that I am what you are (awareness). I just need to accept and surrender to what comes and goes. I am already it and that :D :D :D :D

Re: Feeling of not yourself

Thanks for the replies everyone, I do reveal it to the counsellor and the last two times I have felt this way is when the session is about to end. Strange... Was telling her how I like to just sit in silence as it felt so nice :D

Re: A Week of Bliss - Ended

No problem snowheight. Thanks for the response, I actually recall asking myself "what will my next thought be" during the week. I was the subject becoming aware of the objects. Will carry on doing this again and see what happens :P

Feeling of not yourself

Hello everyone, like the title says I always get this feeling towards the end of a counselling session that I am not me. I feel like I am watching someone else who speaks through me and I just sit back and let it happen. Can anyone explain why this happens or what it means? Thanks

A Week of Bliss - Ended

Hi guys, I went through something amazing last week. After speaking to my uni counsellor about the way I have been feeling and meditating by letting go, I seemed to have had a shift. I became someone who would not believe good and bad thoughts, instead just watch them pass. Last week for the first t...

Paxil or Pain - Lost

It has been just over a year since I have come off anti-depressants and during the beginning I felt amazing. Things were getting better and the power of now revealed itself to me. Lately everything is changing, I have been feeling numb (no emotions), anxious and just lost. I have one more year of un...

Re: My ego is using enlightenment (future) to end suffering

I will be more honest next time, I just realised I know this is happening which means I have come a long way since the days of being totally identified with the mind. Day by day the gap is getting bigger and I'm watching these thoughts knowing they are not me. Will keep watching these thoughts and w...

Re: To stop the voice or watch?

Thanks for all the replies, I realise I just need to watch. I think recent exam stress has caused my mind to be on rapid fire however I'm re-reading the power of now and it's making more sense. Thanks again....

My ego is using enlightenment (future) to end suffering

As I write this I have just experienced a deja-vu, it feels like I have dreamt of writing this before. Anyway my ego now thinks about how i'll be free and happy once I become enlightened, obviously I know that this can only happen in the now and present moment. However, when I meditate and go deeper...

To stop the voice or watch?

Hope all is well everybody, I was curious as to whether one realises the inner voice and stops it or if one lets the inner voice chatter but simply watches it? When I become aware of image thoughts they seem to dissolve straight away, but my biggest challenge is this voice.

Re: Meditate or not?

Meditation has been pivotal on my path. It began with self enquiry -'I am, I am, I am' (a different spin on the usual 'What am I?') ... until I recognised the simple pure awareness of my being. Meditation was then just resting in/as this pure being. As soon as I read this everything made sense... T...
