Re: Why and how do you meditate?

Chris88, My thinking is that clock-time is a completely irrelevant factor. When you feel like you are not comfortable anymore, it is time to get up. My suggestion would be not to push the limit. All of us have inner built in wisdom. It is very helpful to just check in with yourself. No one else trul...

Re: Why and how do you meditate?

This is an interesting conversation and very important post. I feel the line blurred between "meditative" and normal state. If you are truly present; utterly and completly; with whatever you are or wherever you are; what are you? There is simply an awareness, which is essentially impersonal because ...

Re: Why and how do you meditate?

Pretty much on the same line of others. I used to feel very uncomfortable with formal meditation. Nowdays I started enjoying it. There is no why for me. I feel like doing it. May be just like we tend to eat when we are hungry or tend to drink water when thirsty. I like closing my eyes. But it is not...

A Guard Dog

I am ferocious guard dog. Since I came into this world, I have only one job; to protect my owner and property. I am very well trained to do the job. I am very skillful and shrewd. I know that there are enemies out there trying to attack my owner. I will never let that happen. I have a wide jaw, shar...

Re: Thoughts don't exist in the now

Everything happens now, even thoughts - how could it be otherwise? Thoughts may be about the past or about the future, but they happen now. An event happens now, a moment later there may be a thought about that event but that thought happens now. "Time" is a mental construct, a psychological way of...

Re: Personal Experience

Thanks! Glad I found all of you and am happy there is a place to share these experiences and relate to others who are undergoing or have undergone the transformation and our living most of their lives in the present moment. What I have noticed now is that I am not trying to get anywhere- I am fully...

Re: shaktipat

The word shakipat roughly translates to transmission of energy. As the years go by, I wonder if it is better to work with everyday, simple life instead of these sound and light shows? And is it better to stand on one's own two feet instead of being given temporary gifts by others? Nice reading inne...

Re: Adyashanti's view of ego, a bit different.

But our personal definitions need a broader frame of reference to help someone else... ...It's kinda funny really: Enlightened Guy #1 outwardly displays an ego at times, yet he teaches that ego doesn't actually exist. And Enlightened Guy #2 outwardly displays no ego whatsoever, yet he teaches that ...

Re: Self-remembrance Vs. Forgetting the self

I know this is a result of too much reading and intellectualizing , but I wanted to clarify this : I have read about remembering one's self all the time as one goes about daily activities , what Krishnamurthi calls - "self-rememberance" and other people have also said the same thing. I practice it ...

Re: Eckhart Tolle Interview With John Parker

Very enlightening interview. Thanks for posting Erict. This post is so important but is buried under old posts. Is it possible to put it somewhere on the top so that more folks can have access to it?

Thanks for all the good work that you are doing.

Re: Acceptance vs. observation

Acceptance is internal. Action is external. You may accept what is right now while moving in a more desirable direction. There is no contradiction between the 2 because they are on different levels. Also i would like to add that you only need to accept this moment and not an elaborate projection in...

Re: What can we do to wake up?

What can we do to wake up? Is there really anything that we can do except be watchful? Hello arniepost, Consider for a moment what it means to wake up... Is this not a shift in perception from emersion in an idea based, conceptual perspective - to an awareness as essential being, our natural state ...
