Re: What happens in meditation?

Interesting post Kiki,

My only response yet to focusing on breath is the ability to fall asleep, which while amazing, since I've long suffered insomnia, isn't giving me the notion of a peaceful / enlightened mind in waking life.

Re: American Politics

Hi I have a sort of dilemma, I'd like to watch house of cards for the entertainment side of it as I've recently become interested in American politics however given the Kevin spacey abuse scandal it kinda feels like I shouldn't be. I wanted to watch it prior to the scandal unfolding.

Re: Dealing with controlling people situation

I had an abusive manager and I wrote a well thought out letter to her and although she didn't acknowledge the letter she certainly changed her ways a little. The good thing about a letter is you can revise it several times before sending and the receiver has time to read and get the message before g...

Re: So just curious are the members of the forum Buddhist?

I grew up atheist, I think the only reason I'd spend time reading about Buddhism is because it's got not god or heavy duty doctrine to follow. However as a pragmatic person I do have issues with the idea of reincarnation. I liken the word soul with consciousness.

So just curious are the members of the forum Buddhist?

Hi although Tolle references quotes in the Bible in comparing their meaning to his own work it seems to me that enlightenment is predominantly only ever used in the religion of Buddhism, so I was curious about which religions the members here are in, if any?

Re: Having difficulty living in the present

When I think about the people who bullied me as children I kinda forgive them and I don't hold hatred towards them. The thing is though I am living in the present with problems such as low self esteem or social skills issue as a result of past issues. These ARE present circumstances.
