Re: GAD and problems with thoughts (future)

Maybe you think too much about it all. You might also experience an identity crisis at your age. My advice would be to develop a well-balanced personality involving some persons that are important to you. You might for example work on a mature relationship with your parents, you might tell best frie...

Re: Awake pain body at the workplace

I did the hypnotherapy a couple of weeks ago and there are a couple of things I learned: At first, it is good to make a clear distinction between emotions and thoughts. Emotions are not necessary bad or meaningless. They have a function and are signals for you in order to change some behaviour or to...

Re: GAD and problems with thoughts (future)

It is possible to be free of this thougts and ego. They are quite often pointless and unnecessary. But with this said those negat...

Re: What is the pain body's purpose?

Can I say that as a practical guideline one must become aware of the message of our emotions in order to do something in a given situation to fulfill its natural human needs? Thereby not taking egoic or negative thoughts all too seriously. I remember that in The Power of Now Tolle says that emotions...

Re: What is the pain body's purpose?

Our primary relationship is with ourselves. It's a relationship of our human ego perspective as it relates to our true nature as eternal conscious beings. Our emotions are indicators of the quality of that relationship in any given moment. To take a concrete example, in my case I have a very distur...

Re: What is the pain body's purpose?

But I'm curious to its inner workings - what is its real motivation? All psychic "entities" serve us in one way or another. Why was the pain body created, what is it a reaction against? I also had this question in my head lately. I suppose that the pain body has indeed a function. If we suppose tha...

Re: The limited psychological world

I understand and agree about the flow, I play guitar for instance, cook, visit nature and may other things. But what about the more inward activities? Fear, must we not understand it rather than flow away with something else? What's your opinion on that? Life has many challanges, military service, ...

Re: Glimpsed the Now....Now Stuck in the Mind

Maybe you try to be too much in the now. I don't know how much time you spend on this, but a few moments a day is already enough, when feeling too much tensions or when feeling you must recharge your batteries or as relaxation. Trying to be in the now can in my opinion even be an obstacle as other d...

Re: The limited psychological world

Just saying for no misunderstandings: With 'in the flow' I don't mean 'go with the flow' in the meaning of crowd, but it has to do with flow psychology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flow_%28psychology%29). You then have a single minded focus on one single task. Normally, being in this state of being...

Re: The limited psychological world

The things you named (ideas, feelings, memories) are things that come into the conscious mind, but which are given in by patterns that exist in the unconscious mind (respectively convictions, supressed emotions and long-term memory). So you can observe these things that come to the surface (thoughts...

Re: Trusting life

Hallo Melkmeisje :) , In short, I cannot say which decisions you have to take, it's up to you. What I can say is that 'being in the now' and 'accepting life as it is' does certainly not mean that you have to lie down and take no action. There's also nothing wrong with rational thinking, it is even v...

Re: Awake pain body at the workplace

I indeed believe that the best practice is to use conscious focus when the pain body and complementary egoic thoughts arise and try to drag you into a spiral of negative thinking (I assume that you already know which forms ego takes and what it tries to do). It is at these moments that you need to b...

Re: Awake pain body at the workplace

I'm a believer in self inquiry, finding out who you really are. This sets the background to understanding what/who you are and are not and dissolves fear-based psychology. This is can be exquisitely simple. Just close your eyes and ask how it feels to be me. Then feel, don't think. The theory (John...

Re: Awake pain body at the workplace

I feel like this discussion leads us to something good :) , in the sense of some practical guidelines how to consciously deal with the problem. When taking the time to pay attention to the worrie, fears, negative thoughts on a feeling level before consciously shifting away from them, then there is h...

Re: Awake pain body at the workplace

[quote="DavidB"]Being present is the opposite of trying, the end of technique. Trying to focus your attention on the inner body is a technique, it is only useful as a means to become present to the awareness of being. Once you are aware of being, it no longer serves and real purpose, but could inste...
