A short story - Brief encounters with Love

Hi there, I often write short stories or poems. It's about a variety of subjects, but today I felt an impulse to write the following. I thought I shared it here, maybe some people will like it or enjoy it, who knows... (I actually stated writing it as a story about pain and fear because I felt pain ...

Re: Why no sublime sense of Depth and Being?

Hello Jonski, I’m assuming here that you did not come to ET/mindfulness meditation practice thinking it will not work, thinking we are all just a collection of atoms moving around aimlessly in a pretty ruthless Universe. And that now you are happy the experiment has indeed failed and you can move on...

Re: Have you changed your diet ?

I don't think Eckhart ever said that becoming a vegetarian was required when on our path to broadening our awareness -- quite the opposite!. From my recollection, he did mention once to be aware of inner body sensations while eating and to listen to how our body responds to different foods. If the b...

Re: Hardcore intense pain-body

Hi dear forum member, I am very sorry you have to go through this. Sometimes pain bodies have an existence of their own, it's like they are separate entities living within you that lurk their ugly heads whenever there's some sort of trigger. I have suffered from mental illness myself, so I fully emp...

Re: Help with sometimes getting stuck in ocd-like thought loops

Hi Placebo! The users here have all given you excellent advice and I am unable to add anything more wiser or more kind. Follow their suggestions, please. The reason I'm writing is because I suffered from OCD for many years (I was suffering from obsessive thoughts for about 10 years, ever since I was...

Re: Hobbies after Enlightenment

Enlightenment for me is a journey that has seemed to start with my first awakening 8-9 years ago. Since then, I have noticed I enjoy spending more time in nature and I also enjoy more the company of animals. I feel much more connected to Nature in all its forms. I feel more I am One with Nature, and...

Re: Confusion, anxiety about what to do in LIFE

Hi Giulio, I've had a lot of anxiety about life decisions at various times as well. A person once suggested to me this tactic, which has worked for me: 1). Get a piece of paper 2) To make a decision, write the pros and cons of your two choices 3) Look at that list carefully, read it several times 4)...

Re: 'Doing' vs 'Being' ?

Everyone has their own experience/path and the need for their own ratio of "being"/"having". But this discussion seems adequate precisely since society focuses so much nowadays, and in general in the last few centuries, on "having". The ratio is skewed too much in favor of "having" with little or no...

Re: Music of "the other side"?

Nice topic! I really enjoy the band called Cocteau twins, it has a lot of surreal-feeling, otherworldly songs. Here are a few of my favorites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j65v7OqlW6I https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wl5EqjtRuGU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qh83z5vIP0w https://www.youtube.com/w...

Re: Feeling the bliss

Thank you for the comments, guys! they're all appreciated :) I agree with you Enlightened2B that mind tries to conceptualize these experiences... The best thing is to accept the current life situation you are in, no matter what that is. Acceptance, honesty, and love (however one wants to define it) ...

Re: Feeling the bliss

The following months I would say the blissful experiences would come back quite frequently. The next day after the first dissolution of ego, it happened again... We were visiting some monasteries there, and again, reality showed itself to me with the same intensity and I experienced the same unparal...

Feeling the bliss

I've been wanting for some time to write my own personal story up. I've written it before only once on a website about two years ago, and since then haven't really published it online, and barely talked about it. But now I felt a sudden urge to write it down again, first of all to bring hope to peop...
