Re: More teachers like De Mello

Not sure about style since no one can be exactly the same. But all the real teachers have confidence in the message since it's so simple and straight. Just want to make sure you understand what you are saying yourself. You said you would have loved to meet the man, but to me, you *are* meeting him e...

Re: Advantage of Awakening?

It's a burning question for you because you created it out of confusion. You asked for simple answers and the answer is indeed simple. No, no one is seeking the Absolute you are seeking -- a blob of nothingness, without awareness. You see your mind made up a concept about Absolute and fools itself i...

Re: Pain body or depression

I just remembered Buddha's teaching on the body. It's really helpful to show that the body doesn't belong to you. For example, think of your heart. Have you even had a say on how it works from the day you were born until the day you die? Never ever once in your life you have a clue how it works. You...

Re: Pain body or depression

Hi Just saw that my reply didn't really help right now. Hmm I really don't know how to explain it better. But what you are saying is exactly what I would say 2 or 3 years ago: "I'm body and mind experiencing on this planet earth". To the now-me that's obvious not my voice. I know it sounds so true a...

Re: Pain body or depression

Hi, Just want to quickly point out an obvious error in your thinking at this moment. It seems like you think the pain body and depression belong to you. Well the good news is even if you want to own they, you cannot. There is simply no way. They come and go according to their own liking, I found. Tr...

Re: How do you keep in the now when negativity is always the

Hi, Your life situation sounds almost exactly the same as mine. The only thing that really helped me, and I mean it's tried and working, is disengage myself from the thoughts and emotions as quickly as possible and stay there whenever a challenge occurs. Try it next time you feel angry or sad. Just ...

Re: My issues with sex and lust

I also find it strange that none of the gurus which I watch on youtube speak about sexual abuse. I think that sexual abuse triggers a lot of suffering in the mind, especially when it happens between you and someone you should trust. You have not searched inside enough:-). I remember Byron Katie wal...

Re: My Experience of consciousness

Hi Thanks for sharing your experience. It's always interesting read. I also had lots of exciting experience, like out-of-body, seeing weird things with third eye etc. One time I wanted to see my father and I ended up seeing someone completely different, someone with different skin color but somehow ...

Re: Facing Death.

How we can face our deepest fear, the fear of death? You mean physical death here right? There are many forms of death. For example, death of ego is very pleasant experience actually. There is no fear whatsoever. For physical death, which I'm also afraid of, first I accept whatever sick feelings co...

Re: Energy recharge

Hmm. Don't think it has anything to do with being introvert/extrovert. When you talk a lot, there is a certain 'leak' of energy, it doesn't matter whether you are introvert or extrovert. I remember a time when I liked to seek out people, hang around with others. Now I realize it's just ego afraid be...

Re: I have a question!

Two levels of answer for your question: 1) Stay present when a question such as this comes into your mind. Observe your thoughts. Don't follow it. The confusion you felt is a sign that this thought stream is pulling you away from present. No thoughts can ultimately free you, even if it means it's a ...
