Re: if i cant think myself free

yes admiral I understand that I am voluntarily participating in that "movie" in my mind...so if I just watch that movie without getting emotionally involved,just watchin it,then that means I am the awareness. is that correct?

Re: if i cant think myself free

I think a lot of people, probably most people, come to The Power of Now from a place of suffering. They are in pain, and want to feel better, and the power of now seems like a solution. Ironically, the harder you try to change, the more you realize that you can't. Often times the mind will latch on...

Re: if i cant think myself free

if my true self is the awareness, then what is it that is being aware of said awareness? The recognition/apprehension happens within the intellect, an aspect/function of the mind. Self-realization is an experience that happens within the mind from a thought of limitlessness that happens within the ...

Re: if i cant think myself free

Right now i'm aware that I am aware but my mind keeps interrupting that That's okay...notice the "gaps" between the interuptions. ..guess I should rephrase that to I am aware that I am the awareness. Saying " the " awareness may signify that you are seeing awareness as an object apart/ separate fro...

Re: if i cant think myself free

dj I appreciate yer help. one more question. can a person be unconscious and still be connected to true self?. can you be connected to the spirit of the universe and be in yer head or would you be delusional?
