Unfortunately, while it may seem experienced or expert chess players play chess in the 'now', unless they are completely dis identified with mind, they cannot be present. I say this because in each and every competitive chess players life he or she has acquired a mass of head knowledge concerning th...

I third that notion, do stick around, if only to visit and partake in the experiences of the others that are a part of this community. As yougarksooo has noted, resistance is contrary to the teaching, watching and acceptance is a paradoxical practice, it can be easy but it can also be difficult. I u...

Research

I would like to ask if anyone has come across any websites or journals that explore the emergence of the new consciousness as ET calls it. I am interested in exploring some research in and around thought, the ego and consciousness and I am finding it hard to find articles, or at least those that mig...

Thank you for sharing this Aanwezigheid,

Today, it has put things a back into perspective for me, I can often get caught in an all or nothing perspective that leaves me confused and frustrated. I forget to notice the small ways that my life has changed over the last 8 months or so. :)

Well, are you aware of the documentary called the inconvenient truth? I think if anything people are becoming more aware of global warming and its consequences and I am sure that there are many individuals who practice behaviors that limit their own footprint on the health of the planet. However I h...

Thank You for your honest input WW. However, while I don't find that you are making fun of my inquiry at all, it does seem that you are communicating at me, regardless, it does not bother me at all. This particular area of understanding is one I have not clarified just yet, I am comfortable that it ...

Hi again Weichen This is for me, also, a very interesting idea. In my own life I have found that the visibility of issues, problems or historical difficulties in my life is largely dependent on my willingness to accept that they are there.

What comes before X? What comes before awareness? An awareness that there can be awareness? Please clarify what you mean about awareness preceding awareness of that awareness and how awareness in this sense could be separated into however as many distinct moments of awareness.
