Eseward, could you recommend the best book by Vernon Howard, for de-energising thought forms :"Mystic Path To Cosmic Power and The Power Of your Supermind both are good books." I'm ordering a couple of books off amazon today, and thought of the thread when you mentioned his techniques for observing ...

However, julia's dealing not with a " vacuum - alone and empty", but with a mind that's all too active and intrusive. I found these techniques a useful temporary measure to improve the signal-to-noise ratio of my thinking mind and create a little space around my thoughts. Deliberately creating thou...

Exactly. I do this by referring to that machine as "It" (which is the false self/ego-self/conditioned mind/etc). Try to let yourself to feel guilty and remind yourself that it's a psychological structure, a conglomerate you created, not real you. Don't fight it, try to just let it be. Exactly. It i...

Re: Intellectual understanding...but not experie

It took a while to realize that I myself was giving them that power by collapsing into a state of gibbering terror whenever they put in an appearance. :D In reality, even the most powerful of these thought-complexes proved to be no more than an empty phantasm when I was able to observe it dispassio...

I try not to be "convinced" of anything that I don't know for absolute certain. The only thing I know 100% is that I am. Anytime the mind becomes convinced of anything beyond that, I've just bought into a belief. I have tons of beliefs or have had tons of them which I had to see through in order to...

I just stare directly at those thought patterns. They absolutely cannot exist when you stare at them. It is as if they cannot tolerate the awareness. The grow and feed on the dark. JD said this in his own unique way. Feelings are the same way. Loneliness, for example, can only survive if I'm not pa...

If, on the other hand, you manage to maintain enough consciousness to be aware when it surfaces and simply observe it instead of getting sucked into a negative thought-stream that will feed it, then you win that round and it gets no energy from your mind. But it won't like that at all. That's not w...

You wouldn't mind giving that for a really cool pear of jeans, shoes, a concert, a massage, a night out partying, a meal in a restaurant, or whatever it is you enjoy. And you certainly don't have to go if you think it's more than it is worth. Besides, maybe Eckhart Tolle is a greedy enlightened spi...
