Well said of course, kiki. Vernon Howard pointed out that observation eventually makes us aware that the attacks of others really belong to them. Our own false selves (egoic minds) may well react to a verbal attack, which gives us an opportunity to observe and disidentify from more of our own rigid ...

Welcome, Dan. So glad you found us. :)

Siemens, small company. :lol: I'm a former database programmer, and of course I've heard of your "small company".

Nice intro post you made. Congrats on the realizations you've already had.

The pain body runs on emotional energy, and especially repressed emotional energy. Fear, anger, shame....all food for the pain body. And repressed emotional energy gets trapped in the physical body.
Great description and great post, Seancho.

The ego is just a condition that exists when you have mistakenly identified with (taken as yourself) the thoughts that your mind has produced along the way. So as Eckhart says in A New Earth, the ego is really just the unobserved (and now automated) mind. Why would you want to crucify your own mind,...

What seems to be the point is that we should do these things in the Now, that is accepting the world and our life situation as it is at this moment. This allows the doer, at least in theory, to access a far greater power than he/she can as an individual. The mind is clearer, the creativity is worki...

Hi Shion. Just some small comments here... I'm not skeptic at all about the potential of what realisation itself can bring, but I quite believe that realisation doesn't lead directly to superhuman powers or all-seeing eyes and also not to immunity from physical pain.

Welcome, Dev, and CONGRATULATIONS on your success so far! Very glad you found us. :) The beginning of freedom is when you realize that you are not the thinker , when you realize that there is "this something" in your head which says all kinds of stuff.
