Re: Apathy

I watched a youtube video last night with a person I didn't know, mooji (sp?) I think was him name. And he spoke about spiritual teachers being like a laxative for consciousness, getting rid of blockages. It made me laugh and I felt that, in my case at least, it was accurate. :lol: Yes, Mooji is a ...

The real challenge, then, is to not take what I do too seriously.
I agree with that! (I'd also add "what I think, feel, and perceive" to that.) :D

Re: Apathy

Sometimes, I feel like this whole body of teachings is just a copout for people who couldn't face the world as it is and so created a set of fantasies. I don't blame them, obviously, because I resorted to the same approach of self-preservation. At times, I have felt this too. At other times, I have...

Re: Apathy

(I think you should flip off everything) Yes! Give everything the bird (including the bird itself)! :D Also, another fun practice: try to be as egoic as you can!... It's as impossible and as silly as trying not to be egoic :lol: (... since it's the ego that is doing all the trying.) You'll know you...

Re: Apathy

Great thread! Love reading everyone's input! I have a love-hate relationship with all the spiritual teachers I listen too; sometimes they just annoy me, often they tranquilize me (like a medicine) and then sporadically I get a truly deep insight that opens my eyes and reveals a layer of 'crust' or '...

Re: Having difficulty living in the present

I then rationally thought "Wait, I AM home. I'm in my house, in my bedroom...I certainly do not want to go back home where I grew up...what does this mean?" I then realized it meant the true home I came from, and will go back to. Hi AliArtist, Here is a video by Mooji I think you might like: https:...

Re: Functioning in the material world

The problem arises from the emotional investment we generate in achieving it - or not. Just like one can see it wrong to want to win, one can see it wrong to lose or to fail in their efforts. Again that's the ego element that mucks up the works. So true! Wanting to win at sports, earn money, get go...

Re: Dealing with controlling people situation

He has adhd, I’ve also introduced him to the power of now and his life too has changed, he never had silence in his mind it was like 10 radios playing all at once, well he’s found peace listening to ET. Yay! :D He’s taking his life in hand but his parents don’t believe he can manage his own life......

Re: What Determines Value?

Interestingly, I posted a thread in another forum recently: "What matters?" To you, those around you, plants, animals, Earth. It seems like for a lot of people, after doing the spiritual thing for a long enough time, the question "Okay, but what really matters?" arises. It's a biggie. I'd say... Lo...

Re: What Determines Value?

I wonder that that self-sense may be the greatest gift from Source. To me it's the ultimate miracle: the individual in the totality, the totality in the individual. A dynamic identity of apparent opposites. Or something like that ... I agree! :D To me, the "self-sense" is kinda like a magical mask ...
