Is it not to allow clarity to deepen free from encumbering concepts?
Yes, I see this happen through watching.

Disidentification, it seems to me, is the releasing of thought in favor of open silence that allows awareness to clear. Thanks. Nice comments. Yes, silence. There came a time during the "shift" when I clearly came to know myself as the awareness, or stillness inside. Not the thought or intellectual...

Clarity of Awareness is regained in silence and in no other way. In my experience, it is regained not only in pure silence, but also in disidentification from thoughts (where there is a dance inside of form and formlessness). To believe that it only happens in pure silence is sort of akin to believ...

Somebody asked Kim Eng, in an interview, what it was like to be in a relationship with an enlightened being. She replied something to the effect: “I don't feel I am in a relationship with anyone. I relate.” Which I suppose means that when someone is there I relate to them in the moment. But to say ...

When You Say Nothing At All
I've always loved that song. Her voice has a lot of air in it, which matches the silence she is singing about.

IMO the ego can be defined as the "package containing" all wrong beliefs we have picked up along the way. That includes wrong beliefs we have genetically inherited. I love this and the other responses above of yours. Eseward, I've seen you share more lately and it is wonderful to see. Keep it comin...

The pain-body is like a fiercely angry dog in a cage. The dog does not want to die of starvation and therefore needs food constantly. But what he really wants is to be free. Keep him in the cage, he’ll keep barking and whining like mad until you throw him in some food. But open the door, let him ou...

In my experience, the painbody just needs to be faced fully without any label or story, not even the word "painbody." By doing that, it runs its course and leads to more presence. Frankly, I've acted out in crying and yelling fits before and never loosened up the negative energy. It just stayed ther...

I have no interest in stopping thought. Thought is often a function of ego-mind activity, and the feedback is extremely important to me. Other times thought is just useful everyday stuff. I seek to disidentify from thoughts/feelings, not stop them from occurring. Of course, when disidentification h...

Even when they think they are stepping out and challenging existing ideas, they are usally doing it within the limited framework of the relative. If you tell them the mind can't grasp it, they think you're copping out. My mind also used to demand proof, until I summoned up the courage to be comfort...

Referring to scripture and the like, are useful tools of awakening, but only to the degree one does so with direct harmony and realization of of their meaning. Such realization is present and available to anyone who will but clear away the stuff of mind and open their sense of now. That says it ver...
