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

(But I guess, technically, if one hasn't wasted any opportunity at all... then he/she hasn't wasted the opportunity of opportunity wasting.... :mrgreen: )

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...

Re: Apathy

I didn't get to read your deleted post, jukai. So I'm not sure what's going on.

Somehow, The Who is ever-relevant (imo), though... So here's The Real Me:

Re: Worry about the future of humanity

How have you been able to find peace in not having power to make the changes that are needed. I have found that the greatest power I have (anyone has) is to go within and discover that therein lies a Peace (that passes all understanding :wink: ). Discovering this Peace has changed how I see and int...

Re: Revealing interview with Eckhart

Yes, this is a good interview! (Even though Eckhart seems to have a cold and sounds a bit congested.)

I remember seeing the the full interview on youtube a while back: https://youtu.be/M00VLswZdyc?t=3m27s

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...

(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 '...
