Re: Focus on one thing or everything?

To focus completely on one thing requires you to be still, alert, and relaxed (i.e. present).... You can't be caught up in the mind-stream and focus completely on one thing. To focus completely on everything that is happening now (which is really only one , continuous happening appearing to be many,...

Re: Suicide NDE

I agree with Rupert Spira in this video when he says that the greatest, most profound experience possible in this seeming Duality is the "Awareness of Awareness" experience ( 49m15s in):

But why experience at all?
Great question. :D

To me, that question is answered by answering this question: "Why is there duality?"

And, I love Swami Sarvapriyananda's answer in this video (at ~1hr 16min 30s into it):

Swami Sarvapriyananda tells a funny, relevant story ~46 min into it.

Re: Crippled with fear

And at the same time I dont really feel that fucked. Theres a bit of space even when I get overwhelmed. This is good. Any space at all means you're not completely identified with the feelings. When facing the fear is it best to focus more on the feeling of the fear itself... Before anything, I thin...

Re: The Paradox of Wanting Nirvana

I enjoyed reading your post, kiki! Especially this part: In other words, I came to see that ego wasn't actually a real entity. Ideas about who I was were quite evident and those ideas were always changing, but the actual "me" entity was nowhere to be found despite every effort to find it. This was c...

Re: Practical tips on Practicing Presence

But it is also said that "Presence is inseparable from you, it is always there in you...In fact it is you"...then why am I not able to sense/feel that Presence within. Because you have split yourself into two: the "Presence" and the "I" that tries to sense/feel It but is unable to (... or is able t...

Re: Suicide NDE

I wonder... if one never wastes a single opportunity in his/her life, then would he/she be wasting the opportunity to explore the experience of opportunity wasting?

Re: Practical tips on Practicing Presence

Hi, healingpresence So then what is it and how do I experience it? This may be a helpful pointer (... if not, forget about it :wink: ): The person who experiences being Present or not... who understands "Presence" intellectually or not.... isn't who you really are . The person/experiencer/thinker of...
