Re: Ego exists in animals too

In my experience the animals that have the strongest ego are the ones who spends the life closest to humans. We have a lot of examples of cats and dogs whose personality are equal to their owners. But I don't think it is a overpowered ego like humans adults have, it is more like a child's ego. Somet...

Re: Being aware of being aware or resting as awareness?

There is one thing we can be certain of and that's that we are.
This sentence was very insightful, when we drop all this thinking, all the judgments, all the labels the only thing that is left is.. silence/stillness/awareness. We just are.
Very beautiful, thank you

Re: Confused about what Rupert Spira said regarding infants

He said with infants, consciousness is merged in experience but and for someone awakened, experience is merged in consciousness. I don't know in which context he said this, but here is my take. A child is a being in development, its ego is in formation and it will need this ego to survive in this w...

Re: Is there anything collective about enlightenment

But this seems to create a new form of duality where people can be divided into the conscious and the unconscious. The only division is when you put/think things this way. It is impossible to define enlightening in words, but it is inherently to this the knowledge that there is no division between ...

Re: The degree of the absence of thoughts is the measure of your progress towards Self-realization.

Yes, without the identification with ego the thoughts become less and less. Another thing that is interesting is the capacity to use the thoughts as a tool, I work in a steel industry and it demands a lot of planning, so throughout the day I have to think all the time to make decisions that will imp...

Re: The hope of 'being', in hopes of becoming

Hello Admiral I saw spirituality as a way to create a story that was easier to live with than what was there before it Yesterday I was reading an Adyashanti's book, and there he said something very similar to this, that for us to see the truth all teachings, all teachers, all ideas, everything needs...

Re: Ego vs misunderstanding

I believe the answer is yes and no.. Yes if you understand that in a discussion/argument you will always need your ego or mind to show your thoughts about the subject you both are talking about. And no if by ego you mean that is the moment when the person loses the presence to the mind and start to ...

Re: Should i end my relationship?

Hello alphie Like we said in your other posts, you should see these things from the outside view. You need first see yourself for what you really are, see what is the actions you are taking from ego and which ones you're taking from love/presence. Nobody here will tell you what you have to do in you...

Re: Conscious Relationships

Hi I started a relationship last year, she moved in 6 months ago, it is the second relationship I have since I started this 'spiritual path'. It is very challenging, because she has a strong ego, but after been with her, it feels like I grow very strong roots in awareness, it is a challenge to be wi...

Re: The Ego, acceptance and an existential crisis

Hello Accepting this and move on and try to make a life as good as I can (which is hard, because a part of me says it can only be achieved by having children). Or potentially tearing everything apart in order to persue children. This statement is very interesting, 'a part of you says..' which part o...

Re: Words versus thoughts

Hello

When you're listening to him with presence you are just giving your full attention.
When you start to make a story about what he is saying, eg: 'I'm not in the now' 'I should not be thinking right now' then you made words become thoughts.

Re: What's happening/happened to me? Opinions

From a outsider view it seems like you had a experience of awareness, your suffering pushed your ego to the limit till it gave up, that is why you felt this peaceful moment. But like Eckhart always says, the ego is a master in taking its position back, it is afraid of die, that is why this older suf...
