Re: How to disidentify from positive ego traits

You ask "do I start to see myself as someone who is not nice?". Actually in my experience this does help to break strong identification. If you're heavily attached to a self image of being a nice person, see if you can let go of resistance to and be comfortable with being the opposite. If you see he...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

Ayahuasca in itself does not help with being present, its about how its used. For most people, washing the dishes doesnt help to deepen presence. But someone practicing deepening presence will use this experience, like all experiences to practice presence. Of course you wont depend on washing dishe...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

[quote=Fore post_id=135728 time=1569715674 user_id=7959] I’m very open to the discussion of this subject, but if your not comfortable with some direct input then I suggest you simply disregard my posts. Taking drugs and going to a Vipassana centre can both be used for the purpose of the ego. My poin...

Re: Mooji and self inquiry

Coincidentally, the same day I wrote this I went deeper with self inquiry than I ever had before and could see the power of it. Things I was too identified with to be able to see all become visible. I listened to Ananta talk about how a big stumbling block is expecting something to happen, expecting...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

Its not like what you think. Life is very mysterious and brings you experiences and tools which can catalyse a deepening of presence in you. These experiences and tools come in many forms. While were all on the same path of awakening, were all on our own unique path. The way your spiritual journey ...

Mooji and self inquiry

I listen to Mooji a lot and his words resonate so much, but I havent been able to practice what he points to so easily. With Eckhart Tolle the things he says are self evident truth for me now, Ive experienced the magic directly so much that its just plain obvious. I see deep and sometimes sudden shi...

Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

Practicing presence works well on ayahuasca but is way more difficult. Ayahuasca is good in the way it can bring unconscious blockages and fears to the surface which you can then dissolve with presence. Aya is very mysterious, it provides you with different ways to release these blockages like thro...

Re: Sudden deepening of presence triggered by reading an article and accepting Im getting nowhere

My take on it is to drop the measuring stick of progress. It is best to do meditation for the simple enjoyment of it. In that I mean to enjoy and appreciate the clarity of your own being. Relax and rest in a true sense of who/what you are. Allow it to expand with practice. Those moments of clear be...

Sudden deepening of presence triggered by reading an article and accepting Im getting nowhere

Something like a kind of sense of despair drove me to search for articles on how to know if your making progress with meditation. I was hoping to find something that would reassure me that I am making progress which would help keep my hope alive. Instead the article I found is this: https://www.osho...

Inner body meditation

I been doing this inner body meditation thing regularly for over a year now, its become second nature, it took a while but its gradually becoming automatic and natural. I see how its giving me the ability to be centered and embrace emotions and I can use it any time I'm suffering and it helps immens...

Amma

I saw that Amma was in my city last weekend so I went to the event. She was doing this thing called "darshan" where she hugs you and says a mantra in your ear, I went up and did it. I was really nervous at the time. The event went on all night until the next morning, I had no place to stay so stayed...

Re: What is spiritual bypassing?

When it comes to guilt, where does non identification come in? I was just observing guilt about a big mistake I made and struggling with not accepting myself because it damages my self image of being a good person and being worthy. I tried not identifying as this person that feels guilty and instant...

Re: What is spiritual bypassing?

How can I be sure this isn't some kinda bypassing? My take is that if it's a matter of avoidance then it may well be bypassing. If however, it's a matter of perceiving the thing or event that concerns you in a larger context, one that is inclusive of a larger spiritual nature, then it's likely not ...

What is spiritual bypassing?

I can use self inquiry to not worry about things, when a stress/pain creating thought arises I can just watch it without identifying with it, without believing its some kinda absolute truth and like this the thought doesn't even touch me. I'm aware this is something loads of spiritual masters talk a...
