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...

What is it to watch the watcher?

My thoughts are who I thought I was untill I began watching them. This then implies the existence of two components: my thoughts and the watcher. What is it to watch the watcher and is the method to do this the same as watching thoughts? This is unusual as the watcher is usually silent so there's no...

Re: Salutations and kindness...

Welcome, and thank you for sharing your experiences. How have things been unfolding for you since the experiences you described? Hello erict! Yes. Things have been tapering off for me. The small wakeful states are becoming less and I seem to be losing the inner depth and the dark periods. There's a...

Re: What do you think I experienced?

Yeah you're right, maybe thats why i previously didnt have the same results - because i had always been asking "who" rather than "what".. i suppose "what" is a little more open ended, whereas "who" implies some personality that must be hidden somewhere I've been stuck in that 'who am I' since I ent...

Re: Presence Often Feels Like Ignoring...

Eckhart makes it sound like being present with an unconscious person is the easiest thing in the world. I would really like to put him to the test in a real life scenario with an unconscious person and see how effective he is. I get the feeling he hasn't had much real experience talking to people; ...

Re: Presence Often Feels Like Ignoring...

Yes, the description of the witnessing is after-the-fact, and quite clumsy relative to what it's attempting to describe. It's not only sufficient to 'just watch', but really all the other interplay during those transactions is ultimately superfluous. In this there is a useful distinction between co...

Re: Presence Often Feels Like Ignoring...

But in witnessing the movement of my mind as it generated that expression of this perception, I'm conscious of how it's rooted in the specifics of my conditioning. And to cautiously distil your words, your sentence here then, suggests some degree of watching yourself from the objective of the aware...

Re: Presence Often Feels Like Ignoring...

Self-honesty is always ever it's own reward. As far as self-inquiry or a process of becoming conscious of the contents and dynamics of our own minds goes, ain't one greater. :D Yes, there is that. :D From an objective standpoint I find the workings of my own mind intriguing, however, I have come to...

Presence Often Feels Like Ignoring...

When confronted with a human being whose emotional intelligence has been reduce to the rudimentary construct of plankton, (pain-body) being present with them often feels like ignoring. Additionally, from this I feel I have to give some prompt that indicates I'm listening so I gently nod my head at t...
