Re: Roger Castillo - Being Lived

Excellent video. Fallowing Eckhart's teaching can give the impression that thinking is something we need to dismiss. Though it is pretty hard to distinguish the thinking mind from the working mind when one is at the beginning of the journey. Maybe for the sake of practice, it is good to dismiss thou...

Re: Questioning if I'm being present "correctly"

... I suffer immensely on a daily basis. To the point of constant suicidal ideation. If you are unable to solve your situation with presence practice I suggest to try more traditional ways for a while. Like therapy and medication. That gives you the possibility to see bad habits which contribute to...

Re: Questioning if I'm being present "correctly"

It feels like I'm trying to accept the unacceptable sometimes. When you catch yourself unable to accept, ask a question: "Who is this I who doesn't want to accept?" What do you do when something is so massively painful that you can't allow it? I recognize though that I can't allow and drop it. But ...

Re: Questioning if I'm being present "correctly"

...im spotting resistance that comes in the form of tension, strain and I've been able to let go of it. What letting go means to you? Is there an element of wanting to get rid of something? If the answer is yes then it is still ego. As I understand you are pretty skillful with directing attention t...

Re: Questioning if I'm being present "correctly"

We start from the perspective of the mind and the mind doesn't know anything about presence. Feeling the inner body is one way that leads to recognizing presence/awareness so we could choose presence without directing attention anywhere. It means that how frequently we come back to body is more impo...

Re: Methods for deepening practice

Do inner body meditation every night and morning. Write down a list of things that are making you irritated, sad. Maybe even a list of what makes you are happy? Use this list as a trigger for reminding to go into presence. Use inner body awareness. Hold some of the attention in the body and don't le...

Re: How to not be lazy or not procrastinate?

You should definitely explore procrastination on mind level and also awareness level. Procrastination is tied to a painbody and is a perfect ego mechanism to produce more pain - suffering. It's not only being lazy, well it begins with being lazy but afterward, it becomes a pattern and not so easy to...

Re: How to not be lazy or not procrastinate?

Read those two books:
"The Now Habit" by Neil A. Fiore
"The Power Of Habit" by Charles Duhigg

The first one covers psychology around procrastination and the latter how to build and change habits.

Re: These feelings?

Does the space/stillness in between thought feel sometimes like something from childhood? The reason I’m asking is because I’ve been experiencing a feeling that is not an emotion but also not a thought, however it is very familiar and almost nostalgic. It feels reminiscent of the wonder I would fee...

Re: The Monster that is 'Regrets'

Try to see regrets as simply pattern. Nothing special which needs special directions how to deal with them. Just another mind/painbody generated pattern. Basically when regrets arises tell yourself: Oh okay, here we go again ☺️ and observe as much you can. Put attention to inner body or outside worl...

Re: Simple life

I found that external life became simpler in a sense of perceiving. What i do is way more complex compared to how/what I did before but at the same time it's easy and simple. But yes, just being is enough. Can't even describe that. Feeling that I'm at home now - always?

Re: Have you changed your diet ?

I think diet depends on the current state of body and/or genetics. For me right now is low-carb, high animal fat diet suitable also no sugar and processed foods. Addition to that i practice intermittent fasting - 16 hours fasting and in an 8-hour window i eat calories what's needed for a day. What t...

Re: Feeling empty inside

If you have difficulties to being in presence when feeling that emptiness, which is probably painbody, use inner body awareness. Find how that feeling feels in the inner body energy field. Where it is. It can be contraction, pain, cold, buzzing or just part of the energy field you cannot feel yet. T...
