for me it's better to drop absolutely every concept about enlightenment and just bring ourselves to the present moment the most we can.
Thank you for your reply. Having no concept of enlightenment will hold you in good stead. I would say it's the mainstay of the process.

Re: Eckhart's knowledge of gradual awakening...

For me, there is no such thing as "now I crossed some line and I'm enlightenment." I think we can be enlightenment every moment if we are present, and we can't be enlightenment every moment if we are not present. Hi Dcs. Thank you for your input. From my personal experience there are indeed lines t...

Re: Eckhart's knowledge of gradual awakening...

Thank you for your reply, NuanceOfSuchness. That is interesting what you wrote about the points. Could you mention maybe a site / source of information where I can learn more about this? Yes, of course but try not to get too caught in the words that describe this process. The direct personal experi...

Re: Eckhart's knowledge of gradual awakening...

I was glad to see this topic. In the past week I listened to this youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzfYTiKw6Bs&t=984s, in which Tolle talks about his experience of 'getting enlightened', and about the years after that when he listened to enlightened people and tried to put together a way to...

Re: Self hatred after messing up something sacred to me

Hi. That seems like quite a fall. The angst you convey brings to mind Buddhist terms known as nama and rupa meaning name and form or concept and object. Preoccupation with mind structures (nama) and form (rupa) or body in this case could very well define the trajectory of karmic energy after the cur...

Rotation - They circumnavigate the lamp shade, those flies. In no particular order. Frantic with the non-verbal dialogue: “What are we supposed to be doing? “I don’t know, just fly... or something” They circumnavigate material things, those humans. In no particular order.

Re: Worry about the future of humanity

Hi. There is no matter in this - 'matter' from the perspective of the cosmos at least and at most. The existence of humans is one of billions of amazing quirks in the grand cosmos. It is truly remarkable that the cosmos can create a sentient being with the capacity to comprehend its creator. Not com...

Re: Senex and Puer Aeternus and Utopian thinking

Interesting :) I also found this quote interesting: "Shakyamuni’s life exemplifies a basic interpretation of the Middle Way as the path between two extremes, close to Aristotle’s idea of the “golden mean” whereby “every virtue is a mean between two extremes, each of which is a vice."

Re: Senex and Puer Aeternus and Utopian thinking

That's quite interesting. All of the places you've observed these shifting poles are all encapsulating notions about the complexities of the internal map of reality or false self. When I stopped watching TV I often catch glimpses of the content from time to time and become aware that humankind is lo...

Re: Single

I'm a man in the same age group and I get what you're saying. I understand that you may feel a pressure from the standpoint of biology and from society - to be in a relationship and have children "by now". I understand that everywhere you look, you may see others in your age group that have it and ...

Re: What is it to watch the watcher?

Yes I think your right! You are conciousness all the other stuff is just arising within you (including the watcher). So then you don’t have to do anything other than know this to be so. Although watching your thoughts may be a good technique to help you realise this knowledge. Ie that you are free ...

Re: What is it to watch the watcher?

Great question :D I don't have an answer for it. But here's Mooji: https://youtu.be/5-Bmowpdqds That's quite a beautiful and powerful description that Mooji conveys. Thank you for sharing. The watcher watching the thoughts must then be another mental construct but one that is more refined and purer...
