JJ, I have practiced basically the procedure you describe for many years. It has totally changed my life, including resolving medical conditions, and continues to do so. Your description was excellent IMO. :)

This amazing living, realizing aspect of us is not and never has been the enemy. We never used it correctly from the beginning. It is like the biting dog that thought it was in charge. Once we take the lead it's happy to follow us around bright eyed and tail wagging... ...it's obvious that there is...

IMO there is the additional problem that conditioning is triggered by events and rises up "AS US" (we're identified with it) and only passes away as "NOT US" (now identified as egoic mind/false self/etc) IF we are able to achieve disidentification/impartiality during its "visit". The habit/identific...

Maybe people are watching, remaining alert, and listening, which would make your post a great success!
Totally agree, Kiki. I often have nothing to say, and try to do so regularly. :)

..."watch" does create distance between the watcher and the object of watching, thus disidentify and pull the electrical plug from that object.

What really happens is often not pure watching, one may actually oscillate between identify and disidentify.
Very well said. :)

Hi EmmyCat.
While the pure TEACHING may be infallible, the TAUGHT are not. Remember... Be aware through what filters your interpretations flow. Be aware through what filters others pass their "Truths" on to you.
Excellent! :)

Two farmers own wells. The well of the first farmer is dry. He gets water only when rainfall fills it accidently and irregularly. That farmer is insecure and apprehensive; he is at the mercy of chance. The well of the second famer is fed naturally and constantly by an underground stream. That farme...

For the most part people are attached to their physical and mental form; it's what they think/believe they are, and because of this they get caught up in the belief that they are separate from eveyone and everything else. Out of this attachment arises fear and suffering. Then there are those who aw...

Q: I don't understand. You say that awareness of anxiety dissolves it. I know how anxious I am and still it persists. A: Feeling anxiety is not the same as awareness of it. When you merely feel anxious, you are identified with it ; you are so close you can't see it. If you close your eyes and feel ...
