Re: Location

An interesting question that would require lots of empirical data. The closest personality trait that is commonly tested I closest to consciousness is low/no neuroticism. The only correlation I’ve read is there is a negative correlation between neuroticism and age. So perhaps areas with lots of reti...

Re: Aesthetic judgement and acceptance of what is

Yes, let the mind wonder and judge, but observe it as it happens. What is important is being aware of the thoughts and appraisals that arise, for we are not the ones who create these thoughts, notice how they appear on their own. Eventually the incessant mind activity will cease when it is not being...

Re: Do You Believe People People Are Becoming More Conscious?

Haha well said smiileyjen. It may be true that unconsciousness is increasing and that is good. The deeper the world suffers, the brighter the light of awakening becomes. When suffering arises it becomes fuel to drive one to dissolve the ego. So it is a great thing in the end, the world may blossom f...

Re: Helping others along their journey

It may be most important to notice where we divert our awareness, so stay aware of their drama and the emotions it arises within your body. From that awareness will come right action, it is impossible to predict what our mind or body will say or do. The true power we have is witnessing all that aris...

Re: Should I leave everything behind?

Perhaps it may be best to dive into stillness while living in a home. Especially since it seems this body is averse to being cold and hungry haha.

Thank you both for the helpful suggestions :)

Should I leave everything behind?

Hello, Ever since disidentifying with thought, this mind has slowly started to realize its current life situation does not feel authentic. This 23-year old body lives in a comfortable peaceful home with a loving family and the ability to make a living as a professional artist. But the desires to hav...

Re: Why are we doing this?

We are drawn to these things because it gets us closer to the truth of who we really are. And in that truth lies the end of suffering and a more beautiful living experience.

If you are not satisfied with identifying with your self-image, then find the absolute truth to this question: "Who am I?"

Re: Done going around in circles

This is good that you notice your attention zipping past peace. Sit down with the contentedness, give it full attention. Know that the urge to be distracted from it is the ego's way of surviving. What's left may be fear of losing the life and story your the ego has built. But don't be afraid, 'life'...

Re: Crippled with fear

Notice these emotions, be still and see them clearly. Become fully aware of how they feel and feel them fully. But be alert, don't let the emotions become 'you'. Open your heart and embrace them, for they truly love you.

Re: Being everything and nothing

Why are you believing the mind as if it were yourself? Watch these thoughts, do not attach to them, see that they are separate from you.

Words from Stillness

Hello, I'd like to share some thoughts from conversations with the mind and consciousness. Feel free to read or not to read or list a question. Who am I and why am I typing this? That self cannot be named, and it isn't typing. Typing seems to just be happening. Why is typing happening? To share path...

Re: Kill the Ego

To destroy the ego, one may have to be willing to lose everything and die. Ego only arises to attach to things, thoughts, emotions, and beliefs which are precious and valuable to the self, for that's its very identity. Be still and find what 'you' are holding on to, and let it go, let it die and cea...

Re: Practical tips on Practicing Presence

I am very sure that I am not paying attention to the thoughts to the noise in the head. So it is not that my past conditioning of the mind is interfering this practice. Any practical tips on that. Then become aware of the aliveness in your body. Fully feel the tingles and sensations in your hands, ...

Re: Relationship cravings

Why not sit with the loneliness? Enjoy its company intimately, for emotions only want to be heard. This body/mind feels loneliness often, but it feels so good to just let it be, with no need to run or do. One of my favorite activities is to just lay in bed feel absolute solitary loneliness, it's suc...

Re: Practical tips on Practicing Presence

Listen to the silence that underlies all things. Pay attention to the spaces between these words. What is there? When your attention is fully on the quiet between your thoughts, that is presence.
