Re: Drugs and spiritual experiences

Yes, Ram Dass used to say that he would take acid once a year – to remind himself of his goal. He used the analogy of a traveller trying to get to a far-off city by foot, who every so often goes up onto a hilltop to ensure himself that he is travelling in the right direction. And, seeing the bright ...

Re: Observing thoughts

I try to watch the emotion... but the emotion has already caught hold of me. Those kinds of strong, overpowering emotions (what we call pain-body attacks) tend to be less overwhelming with time, as you work on yourself. At first just try to observe them as they overwhelm you.

the moon in autumn,
a cool breeze in summer,
snow in winter.
If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things,
this is the best season of your life."

Re: Truth realization

My brain is attempting to understand...

In terms of awakening, that’s a great realisation, isn’t it ?

Re: Adya was diagnosed with Bell's palsy Nov 07.

It's upsetting to hear he's ill.
Does anyone know whether it's a serious disease?
