Re: Meditation and Mourning?

Hi! I just thought I'd check in with this thread I created last year, and didn't notice the last post from Smileyjen101. Wow! That message from the link Smileyjen101 sent me 4 months ago was really significant and profound! Yes, it does say it all just right, and it makes sense. I like his last stat...

Re: Meditation and Mourning?

I didn't realize I forgot to reply and thank you, Smiley, for your words of wisdom, and how you interpret Eckhart's teachings regarding "what is". I am currently rereading Power of Now (probably the 3rd time or so), and also Thich Nhat Hanh stuff. I also have played happy and upbeat music as a way o...

Re: Meditation and Mourning?

I just reread your last post, Smiley, and am understanding it more and more. I think you are saying it is the pain body if we have regrets, guilt, questioning, etc., that do not have to do with what 'is". So, therefore, it is not really "pain body" if we are simply missing someone, and accepting tha...

Re: Meditation and Mourning?

Lately I have been wondering if those times of grieving, like the waves that come and tears flow, is that what Eckhart Tolle would call part of the "pain body"? In those instances, is it appropriate then to accept the wave, acknowledge it as the pain body returning, and fully experience it, or turn ...

Re: Meditation and Mourning?

Well, the dilemma has been, "Can I ever 'be', like I could be when I was with him (Rook)?" I think I hesitate to meditate because it always makes me think of him and wish he was right next to me (in his form). But it does help to reread everyones posts here to keep me in the right perspective. Yes, ...

Re: Meditation and Mourning?

Funny thing, after asking Cirrus to give some of her spirit to our new dog Shasta (4-5 yr old border collie mix), and help her to get along with dogs and be submissive like she was, Shasta one day started slurping water like Cirrus used to, in slurps of 3's, you know. :lol:

Re: Meditation and Mourning?

Here's an update about where I am in the grieving process...I did make a difficult decision to adopt a dog from the Humane Society where I've been volunteering at since our German sherpherd dog Rook died. It was hard because we are still mourning, and it is still very painful sometimes, and moreso f...

Re: I would like to be like E.T

What I've done is combine advice from Taoist (from my tai chi practice), Buddhist (specifically Thich Nhat Hanh), and Eckart Tolle approaches. Simply stop and breathe, be still, and notice what is happening using your senses: What I see, what I smell, what I hear, what I feel, what I taste...like ou...

Re: Does the Power of Now contradict dieting?

Okay, eat a small piece of cake sloooowly, enjoy it meditatively...Then make up for it with an extra mile of power walking or jogging to burn it off. It is devastating how a little bit of indulgence will keep you from making your goal. And I suppose one should be totally aware of the choice, and wha...
