Consciousness is just pure knowing right?

I was thinking about something and how it may relate to consciousness but I don't know if it's right. When I was younger and in school, my English teacher always used to say that I can't define a word by including it in its own definition. Instead we use different words to define what a particular w...

Is awareness/presence the opposite of being self conscious?

In a nutshell. Pretty much what the title is asking. What do you guys think?

Presence is living as if you don't exist right?

Just making sure about all of this, but awareness is just seeing but there's no one there seeing right? 100% impersonal, just a nobody.

Re: No-mind...stillness working through you without your eff

It is literally the opposite of fear. The opposite of fear is trust. Trusting in life is the same as acceptance/surrender, which is the same as unconditional love. Which is not the same as faith, as faith is literally belief without evidence. Trust conversely requires no belief. SOMEHOW there's sti...

No-mind...stillness working through you without your effort?

When you are in the state of no mind, does that mean that stillness/being/divine is working through you divine as words and actions? Whenever I find myself being present, I find that my words and actions come out of nowhere and there is no reason why. It's as if the divine is me and I am the divine....

Happened out of nowhere, I was extremely present last night

The last time I remember feeling like that was when I was 7. I can now describe it as just, "Innocence". When I say I was extremely present I am saying I was so present that I was the present moment itself. Now I finally understand what it means to be present. At first I thought that it was a state ...

Enlightenment bliss vs chemical bliss (drugs)

So in the past I experimented with certain ego-destroying drugs that brought on euphoria/bliss one couldn't imagine. Of course I also suffered from an addiction which put me in a downward spiral of depression which lasted a while. The good news is that I have been completely sober almost two years n...

Boatloads of anxiety while meditating?

Is it normal to have extreme anxiety when meditating? It literally feels like I am dying seeing thought after thought come to an end into absolutely nothing. Recently my meditation has been penetrating a lot deeper meaning that I no longer have as much mental noise going on but I have the visceral f...

Does anyone else here feel like a god when they're present?

So anytime I am really present, I feel like I have this penetrating focus and confidence goes through the roof. I begin to be very charismatic and say all sorts of stupid shit that people would rather listen to because there is soul behind it. This may sound funny but the way I learned about being p...

Re: Being aware of innerbody or breath..something you "do"?

I'm finally starting to understand the knack of it. It is like a pure, raw, knowing. The only problem is when I know that I know and that's when mind identification happens. I have an analogy for this. Mind is like a glass of beer filled up to the brim and as you're walking around thinking, you are ...

Re: Being aware of innerbody or breath..something you "do"?

I tried it, there is just nothing. Just isness. Is awareness like observing without an observer? I'm usually afraid of heights and I was walking among some rails downtown about 100 feet off the ground like I didn't care, it was weird. It feels like being a nobody just floating along.

Being aware of innerbody or breath..something you "do"?

So when meditating or coming back to the present moment, I get confused about something. When they say be aware of your breath or innerbody, I end up thinking about them instead. I already have a hard time to just not engage in thoughts so that's why I'm looking towards using an anchor to make it ea...

Masculine/feminine aspects of the present

This is something a bit different, but the same meaning. Basically there is a man named David Deida who is a psychologist and spiritual teacher that helps people "find God through sex" believing that what makes relationships successful is polarity. He describes the present moment as being composed o...

Re: Is it all just about resting as "not knowing"?

I was at a point where I got addicted to drugs and after I quit, I had a lot of anxiety and depression unlike anything else in my life. It's all gone now but I think it was that my presence was greatly weakend by it. I quit smoking cigarettes 11 days ago as well because I felt like it was just an un...

Re: Is it all just about resting as "not knowing"?

I see. It is just so hard to stay present. I find it's not mentally hard, I can easily let go of thoughts until my mind quiets down. What makes it hard is being present with feelings. Is it true that in order to feel any real joy, you have to first be present with the very negative feelings? Meditat...
