Re: Kill the Ego

Thank you for your reply Eric A mirage only causes suffering when you believe it to be water instead of what it really is. However, when you see a mirage as a mirage...there is no need to try to beat it out of existence. I understand that. I was only thinking that if there was some way to remove the...

Re: Kill the Ego

Thank you for your time Kiki. I really appreciate it. Yes, disidentification is what matters. Allow that to happen, then enjoy knowingly what's going on around you. The world is then more of a playground to explore, enjoy and then rediscover true essence rather than a battleground for the ego to get...

Re: Kill the Ego

thank you WW for your reply Ego is so ubiquitous in this human experience that it cannot be without purpose. Eckhart answered this pretty clearly imho. The purpose of unconsciousness is to allow consciousness to come forth in the world. And while the identity though and of ego structure is not real ...

Re: Kill the Ego

thank you for your reply kiki it is only an appearance of a thought structure in the mind that makes it seem to be something real - that's the illusion. Even a temporary thought structure is real is it not? Isn't it real for the time in exists in the mind, until you successfully disidentify with it?...

Re: Recreating intense suffering intentionally?

Thank you for your reply kiki. I will definitely try your suggestion. I wanted to ask you din't Eckhart dissolve his ego once and for all? Or does he still have the false self within him. I believe in PON he clearly stated that the shift from to consciousness was permanent. I have also read some pos...

Kill the Ego

Hello all, This is a thought I had on how to get enlightened (fully conscious all the time like Eckhart) rather than alternating between consciousness and unconsciousness. Eckhart described in PON how the intense suffering in his life forced his mind to disidentify from the Ego once and for all. So ...

Who is to blame?

Hello all, In 'A New Earth' Eckhart talks about diminished responsibility, saying that people can't be blamed for their actions as they are under the grip of the pain body. He said that the pain body is the source of violence and how 'normal' people sometimes act completely out of character. They ta...

Adding content

Hello everyone, Eckhart says that adding concepts, knowledge and information is not necessary to be fully present. I'm a little confused by this. Does it meant that if I read his books, watch his videos about Presence, am I identified with my mind? Like if I need some more information about Presence...
