Re: A Meditation and Realization Journal

Welcome to the forum, LoveRei. Getting in touch with stillness will open the door to insight, then eventually you become your own best teacher. Or more accurately, stillness leads you to greater depths of clarity that penetrate and realign thinking and how life is experienced. As that depth is gaine...

Re: Time. The Present is a "Psychological Illusion" says Harvard Psychologist

First of all, when you say 'the present', yes, you are implying a past and future, but these are concepts that exist solely in the mind. In reality there is no 'the present', so he's right about that...time is a concept. But there IS something beyond the conceptual, presence . Presence is eternally ...

Re: I refuse to surrender to what is. Isn't it giving up?

Welcome to the forum, addman16. Change what you can (which is what you want to do). There's certainly nothing wrong with that. Situations that arise that are impossible to change one must accept, otherwise you will suffer. Suffering is in the mind only, so acceptance is a way around suffering. Lonel...

Re: Auditory hallucinations?

Perhaps 35 years ago at the age of 33 I had an experience I'd never had before nor since. It happened to be the night of my birthday, and while lying in bed and reflecting on my life to that point an audible male voice said very clearly and lovingly inside my mind, "Don't you know I'll love you no m...

Re: Methods for deepening practice

I have a hard time keeping two things going at once, i.e. staying with my breath and thinking about a problem or communicating with someone. Don't overcomplicate things - trying to stay with the breath while thinking about a problem or communicating with someone is just that. When thinking is neces...

Re: Question about Echart's teachings

So here is my question, When people read or hear Mr. Tolle say that they should disidentify with their thoughts/mind, do they interpret this literally and resultantly not acknowledge a pattern of mind that needs to be dealt with, or do they disidentify to an extent, in a way, where they no longer g...

Re: Singer songwriter with a twist!

Welcome to the community, DRC. First, I would like to congratulate you on what appears to me to be a profound spiritual awakening - your backstory has classic experiences denoting that, and I can relate to your descriptions quite easily, especially how you describe the silence and stillness despite ...

Re: Difficulty with Presence

I agree with Webwanderer. Build up familiarity with presence throughout the day as much as possible. In less challenging times it's easier to become present and that habit will serve you better when confronted with more challenging situations.

Re: Grateful to have found this forum

Welcome aboard, WatcherLK. I can only echo Sighclone and Webwanderer's advice about not sharing this with just anybody, even family members. I've learned the hard way that that's nearly always a sure-fire way of turning people off. Your best strategy in how to 'talk' about this is simply to live in ...

Re: Can awakening happen in stages?

I found Eckhart Tolle on the internet. Don't remember what I googled. Can't stop listening, analyzing and trying to learn. So if I'm trying to learn and practice being present, does that mean I'm not awake yet? To keep listening, reading and thinking about this is standard behavior for most everyon...
