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...
