Regardless of my addiction to weed, and lack of energy/depression, I want to improve and live a better life for the long run.
Do you like Mooji?

In my opinion, this video of his has many great, helpful pointers:

Re: Ramana Maharshis Who am I? I need help understanding it

I read many different sources and they all help to elucidate Ramanas teachings better... I agree. Sometimes, one teacher will say something a certain way and their wording just doesn't quite "click" for me. Then later, I'll hear the same teaching expressed another way by a different teacher, and I ...

Just knowing who I really am is enough.
Yes, just knowingly being You. That's it. :wink:

It's funny how complicated/difficult the mind can make it all seem.

Re: Is thinking/saying "I don't care" resistance?

I would listen to sad music to reach this "depressed" and "everything is shitty" state and imagine all these "dramatic" situations with people in my life. I did so because I liked it. Now I don't, but "trying" to stop is so tough Lol I used to do that too. And, yep, it was all fun and games until I...

Re: do we die? how do you understand it?

do we die? how do you understand it? The way I understand it: We as apparently separate, finite bodies/minds are born, live, and die. So, in that sense, yes, we do die. But are these appearances who/what we really are? No. In reality, we are the one, eternal, infinite Awareness in which these (all)...

Re: Awakening

I fully realise that who I am is beyond thought or any mental images of myself. In essence I am the same as everyone and everything else; human, animal, insect, fish or plant. I am the One Life that flows through it all. Thought is part of all that, as is the ego construct; none of it is bad or wro...

Re: Is thinking/saying "I don't care" resistance?

So I just dismiss these thoughts in the sense of thinking “why even bother, who the hell cares?” Kind of like this “I don’t give a damn” attitude. I am afraid that this is just adding more fuel to the fire, but at the same time, it is the quickest, most efficient way I have of not getting lost in t...

Re: I make myself crazy, can't stop thinking about something.

My question is: how to get rid of this kind of thing? This inner dialog, inner criticism, inner judging. And at the moments when I am very stuck in my head how to make the step out from it. How to find that inner peace, which won't be disturbed by any bad or good scenarios. You get rid of it by not...
