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.

Re: Ultimate Destruction

Who is it that gets hurt? Who is it that has these bad things happen? Sounds like living through the lens a false self. Try listening to your thoughts, can that really be 'you'?

Re: Deal with Anger

Well said Webwanderer.

Who is it that that holds this anger energy? Who is it that needs to express it? Observe this energy more closely, become intimate with it, eat it and understand it. Heavy emotions suffocate from our attention.

Re: Adrenaline pumping

Hello Rob and welcome to the forums.

Could you explain your experience further? Has this happened since finding more presence or could these incidents be related to thoughts? If not, perhaps this could be talked about with a medical professional.

Hope you enjoy it though

Re: Identity is Gone, is This Common?

That's right. Everything arises out of consciousness, is witnessed by consciousness and dissolves into consciousness. This is called "Lila - the play of consciousness". In other words, all is consciousness. That sounds very poetic, thank you. A few updates from what I've observed: It seems identifi...

Re: trapped by addiction

Yes, accept this. Realize that the compulsive watching of pornography isn't happening to 'anyone', so accept that it is happening with no identity attached to it. Don't just observe, realize that even the observer isn't really 'you', there is no you. There is only a body and mind that engages in com...

Re: Identity is Gone, is This Common?

Don't worry, it will. Also, I wouldn't think in terms of "killing" the ego; doing that implies it is an enemy to be eliminated, and that can create an adversarial relationship with it. Instead, think of it as a fraud or a trickster to be seen through as a temporary illusion... Thanks again for the ...

Re: Identity is Gone, is This Common?

Some good news, the ego came back. So consciousness had gotten the opportunity of killing it again. I can describe the process again with more detail now. After an eventful day, awareness became lost in the external world of form and identity. It had forgotten itself. The biggest sign was a negative...
