Re: Question about practicing presence

You don't need a special time to be in presence. Try to observe your breathing and inner body energy field while you do something like washing dishes. Usually, we are not only doing but at the same time thinking, replace thinking with inner body awareness or you can observe every move, every sound f...

Re: Is conscioussness an idiot?

My experience is to form habits that are generating presence. Observing thinker, inner body feeling, breathing. Then the illusion of ego/conditioned mind starts to dissolve or identification with it weakens. Then a sense of self moves inward, before body and thinker where is spaciousness, peace. Fr...

Re: Is conscioussness an idiot?

Exhausting at the beginning, when the patterns of observation are taking root, and then effortless-feeling once they've been ingrained. That makes sense, we are after all deeply conditioned beings ... and conditioning has its pros and cons, right? My experience is to form habits that are generating...

Re: Is conscioussness an idiot?

Sounds exhausting! Is it enjoyable for you? What benefits does it bring? It's not exhausting rather opposite. Thinking is exhausting, being trapped in the same thoughts day after day, year after year. In some sense building a prison for self and living there without realizing that door is actually ...

Re: Is conscioussness an idiot?

Sounds quite pleasant. Was it? What do you mean by 'not seeing through thought patterns when they come?' Can you give an example? It was pleasant but lacking clarity. I try to watch what's going on in my mind constantly. Self-images, unnecessary thoughts about future or past, thoughts from painbody...

Re: Is conscioussness an idiot?

For me it feels kind of attribute-less, which is why I keep saying 'blank.' But if I had to describe it I'd say: calm and restful. Clear in the sense that I am ready for what presents itself. But not in the sense that I am paying intense attention to whatever happens to be happening. Make sense? Th...

Re: Trapped energy in the mouth

The present moment practise lead people to forget about any goals and establish a person completely in present moment, but as a gift of the practise you move forward in spirituality and in your case it seems like you're having the positive results fastly. Spirituality is always challenging and have...

Re: Trapped energy in the mouth

I have those intense inner body feelings sometimes, strong vibration or humming. Last summer, when I was in the presence only occasionally, I was taking long walks in nature at weekends, holding attention in the inner body. This practice almost always activated the intense inner body feeling. 3-4 ho...

Re: Trapped energy in the mouth

Yes, I'm practicing meditation every day and often I will scan the body for emotional pain bodies. Often when I do this I will feel a strong energy in my mouth that feels trapped and as much as I sit with it in meditation it remains. I'm curious as to whether anyone else has had this and can perhap...

Re: Hardcore intense pain-body

... But then I'm present with such strong pain and it doesn't leave and it doesn't get weaker. Sometimes it gets stronger if I stay present with it. Sometimes it stays the same. I try to feel it. That's all I do. I try to locate it in my body and stuff like that. But then, at one point, I feel like...

Re: Eckhart, why no miracles?

I heard about Tolle's miracles. People told me that he's eating when he's hungry and he sleeps when tired :) This is a true miracle - being in present with everything. Jokes aside, well there was a truth in it, I don't know Tolle personally but point is that even if Tolle moves mountains or splits s...

Re: Anyone recovered from Severe Anxiety?

Thanks so much for the response. To be honest I know where the anxiety stems from but don’t know what it is trying to tell me. I guess I should try to meditate on it. It’s also a dark sadness that comes along with it. Some days I cry all day and think it’s hard to go on. I do think this is a learni...

Re: Hearing voices while running that seem real. Spiritual awakening ?

Hi. If you could locate sounds outside like you did they most probably are from outside. Bushes in your case. We can sense danger when predators are watching us. I don't know where do you live maybe it was a mountain lion or some irritated bobcat who was trying to tell you to go away. But I might be...
