People become crazy in groups. Maybe if people were to come together in a group for the no purpose other than to be present together, a non-crazy social space could come into being. No talking = no social game playing. No approval seeking. The ego cannot do anything in such a situation. It sounds li...

Re: Are GURUs lying? Is realization that easy?

While they themselves have spent many years, decades, practically whole life pursuing the goal, practicing, making herculiean efforts. There is not a single GURU which I would see was enlightend while eating burger or chomping on donuts. did they get there by pursuing goals? Or did they get there b...

How can we define what consciousness is, when every definition is an object within consciousness?

Problem is alot of things that might seem fun now (eating too much, having sex with a girl I just met, staying up all night playing games) might not be good for long-term fun. Who doesn't make sacrifices? Sacrifices? What for? Why bother yourself thinking like that? Just figure out how you can have...

Re: Tolle vs. Identity

I really try to just watch my thoughts and emotions, but they over run me when I am under social pressure and it just blahh, my voice shivers and all that. Yep, you are addicted to the approval of other people. Ever been addicted to anything? This is the same. You think you NEED other people to app...

Another thing Anthony de Mello shares with ET is the extraordinary density of his insights. Almost every sentence contains a revelation that rewards in-depth contemplation. This is extraordinarily rare. Yeah JD, thats it. And all of it is right off the top of his head. Just riffing. Innocent and fe...

Well..I started a cult awhile back. If you join us we can make sure you always do the right thing. :D Its called Fun-etics. Kind of like dianetics, but more fun. Fun-etics is much easier to deal with than other cults. Nothing you have to do, little you have to believe in. There's only one rule actua...

Wow, Cindy. Nice insights. Isnt it amazing that there could be something inside us that would try to sabotage our own steps toward happiness? The twinge of shame that you feel when you make these mistakes at work....what does that feel like? Can you turn calmly toward that #$%#$% feeling, look at it...

Replies: 27

For me, crying feels like an enormous release of pent up energy. A deep letting go. The ego holds on, wont let go of anything. The ego is afraid. Thats why deep sobbing can feel frightening, and is considered shameful. Crying makes people uncomfortable. We are taught not to cry...especially men. But...

haha, yeah the songs are funny. The mind does its own thing, thinking thoughts, singing songs, making movies about a past and a future. thats what it was designed to do. It is very good at its job. So we get lost in all that. We think its real. We believe the movies. But all that mind activity, all ...

Nice images.. Isnt even the past in the present? And you? And the ego? Could there be anything that isnt in the present? All of it. Always here, now. Anything that isnt now is a story, and even that story exists in the present. We believe the story, and that belief is in the present. We worry about ...

I'd rather study love and learn why people "fall" in it or feel they fall in it and then try to organize my internal & external space so that love is likely to occur. I think scientists don't fancy being at the whim of the universe nor unconsciously "falling" into mental/emotional states. So you wa...
