The REAL I is not hurt so don't feel hurt. I Disagree

I have been watching Rupert spira videos lately and i love the clarity he has on the non dual theory. But i disagree when he says if the real I is not hurt by insults then there is no legitamate reason to feel hurt. It's like you are with your friend and someone insults him won't you feel a shread o...

First, a basic assumption needs to be made that ultimate reality is infinite, limitless and unchanging.
Thankyou for replying to my question. But again you are assuming that there exists somthing called 'ultimate reality'.

Can conciousness not be a function of the brain?

Who am i? Why can't i be a ever changing entity?

People say that i can't be my body, i can't be my mind. So i am that observer or whatever. Really? Why? Because body and mind change all the time. Our body and mind is not the same that it was 10 years ago. But to that i say, so what? Why can't the entity that is 'I' be ever-changing in it's nature?...

Re: When thoughts come what should i do?

No, you are mistaking indulging with welcoming. When I say to allow the thoughts to be, I am saying to accept their presence because they are ultimately made of presence. You welcome the thoughts by accepting that they are there without falling into the habit of following them and engaging them. Yo...

Re: When thoughts come what should i do?

Living with the feeling means to allow it to be as it is. Your true nature is openness, nothing sticks to you. The rage and anger just want to be embraced, allowed. That's the only way they will go away although when you allow them, you do not allow them with the intention of making them go away. Y...

Re: Awareness means you know everything?

Yes awareness knows love. Only thing that takes me out of loop-thinking is the thought of love.

Re: When thoughts come what should i do?

The more you try to change, ignore, or modify them, the more they keep coming back. You just have to instead allow them the space to be. I like what Eckhart says, "Ask yourself if you can live with this feeling forever." There is no other way around it, the only way is through. Can you please expla...

Re: When thoughts come what should i do?

Yes i fear annihilation. The past event when i could not stand-up to bullies repeat in my mind as thoughts in a loop inventing new scenarios. I try to get back at bullies which i could not in the past.

Re: Question about being present

Webwanderer, is being-present your natural state? Can you ple tell us how long did it take you to reach this state, i meant how long did it take for the transformation from natural state being thinking to natural state being no-thoughts.

Re: When thoughts come what should i do?

Yes, i make a resolution everyday that i will ignore these thoughts but end up responding to them. I have been getting these for the Last 3-4 years.

Re: Question about being present

Eckhart has said in very clear terms that only about 20% of your attention should be focused on the job at hand rest of your attention should be focused on the anchor. If you don't do this thoughts will creep in. For example my anchor is sense-perception so i feel the weight of my body on the chair,...

Re: To anyone lost, read this, my life from 40yrs of being lost to now!

I found tolle about 3 years ago. I have practiced presence since then. But i have only seen glimpses if it. My thoughts of the past (i was bullied) are quite overpowering. I get lost in my thoughts and suffer. I wanted to ask did you work your way to being present or did it just happen suddenly.

Re: Will practicing presence releieve my suffering?

Thankyou for such a warm and beautiful reply. Such words can only come from presence. If you don’t mind can you tell me when did you learn about presence/living-in-presence.
