I truly feel that in watching my pain-body, that in giving awareness to it, that a part of me is dying--that I'm cutting the oxygen supply to it. Hi Marianne, I really got what you were saying and just wanted to add that another way of looking at it is that you are not killing the pain body; you ar...

I brought a high resonance of awareness to it, while I cried, and that seemed to at least allow me to view it.

Din, Blenderhead, I think you agree but there's a difference in terminology. Possibly Eckhart talks about presence as the experience of awareness. With Eckhart, you can really feel when you're present. With Advaita presence always is, no matter what. You don't have to experience awareness of awarene...

Are you or are you not totally identified with the thought or question "who has created all this".

Because you sure act like it is a very important question, you keep repeating it over and over and over...

It is only with separateness and self-seeking that real suffering appears in the world. I think Nis is saying that only by believing the world to be separate from who you truly are can suffering appear. When you know yourself to be everything that arises in the world then 'real suffering' is expose...

If Presence arrives, does that mean it can really leave?
I suppose it's the awareness of awareness that comes and goes. Consciousness is, always. Consciousness seeing itself appears to fluctuate. Fluctuation requires time, so it's an illusion of the mind.

Go into not doing anything fully. If you have to be a bum, then be a bum in peace. Totally accept that right now you don't know what to do. Your life purpose is to be here now. That's all life is, the now. I would say that it doesn't matter enormously what you do, it's how you do it. Get the how ri...

That is love.
Yes, love is what happens when consciousness recognises itself in all that arises. When there is no sense of separation there is love.
