Re: Help

Your struggles with the ego (which is a struggle with something what is not real) won't be succesful, as it has been said before. As long as you are still identified with what you call "me", your personal story, with "your" thoughts. This story is nothing but thoughts. I would advice you not to make...

Re: pain body question

Sounds like a very serious world in which the forces of the light and the forces of the dark fight each other. "Evil entities" which try to harm us take posession of us and only the "right way" will bring us back into the light. :evil: This all sounds to me like there actually was a "me" which can b...

Re: ego / reality

The spiritual way is really a strange way to go - because it is no way. I find myself many times sitting and asking myself "okay, what can be done now to connect to the now?" and then I recognize that this question is an egoic illusion on te one hand and - on the other hand - already is asked now. I...

Re: ego / reality

But where is the love? It is only a game, maybe. I start having a sense for "the unrealness of the game". But it is still a perspective of no joy, only some kind of peace in the background. One of my strongest reasons to search for enlightenment was that I wanted to be something good. Someone with a...

ego / reality

Hi everyone! I've been reading few in the last time on this forum. I don't know... but "me" thinks he needs help. Some things have happened to me and have changed things a bit. I finally see the stories for what they are. They are only thoughts, which have made me to an actor of myself all my life. ...

Re: Rough week

Forget about staying present. You can't do anything to change your situation by presence. Presence is not mentally doing anything (like "observing the thoughts" - you do already observe, otherwise you wouldn't even recognize them). There's a movie ging on in your head. It's really a painful movie. L...

Re: A tiny bit of clarity

I more and more think that you are speaking about the same thing as the moderators, shappy. It is not so easy to describe something with a verb which doesn't happen . How would you describe not-ding? :lol: Of course, your advice could then be "don't do!" or "do not!" to someone but this not-doing is...

Re: A tiny bit of clarity

What I find great, shappy, is the fact that you don't - like a lot of people here - almost admire kiki and webwanderer and take everything they say as "the wisdom's last point". 8) But maybe when you heard about all that presence-stuff you somehow acutally made a concept out of it. And now when you ...

Re: A tiny bit of clarity

shappy, my friend... Again I feel spontaneous attachment to you. You seem to have the same tendency as me not to be satisifed with the "usual stuff" and take nothing as definitely. I could describe it a hundred times better in german but I hope you know what I mean. You are an intelligent young man,...

Re: How Do You Let Go?

I've come to realize I"m driven by the quest. I must know the answer, and I must learn more. There's always something more. I never get to it, because there's always more. I know I need to just let go, and my awakening will happen Consciousness - what you really are - doesn't prefer letting go over...

Re: Finally some understanding

Yes, to me it's also mainly the face :wink: It was one of the most significant experiences when I about a month or two ago decided just to feel this tension in my face and just don't believe any kind of thought. This "moving tense" gives life some more life :lol: if you know what I mean. Since then ...

Re: Drugs and spiritual experiences

spikeyface, I totally agree with you. If you don't have a clear idea about what place you want to travel on the psychedelic journey, you might are flushed to a place of pain and confusion. I think it's also worthful to get in touch with the dark side inside yourself, which also can happen. But then ...

Re: Drugs and spiritual experiences

I'd like to add my own 2 cents... renaissance, I'm sure you have never tried mushrooms, lsd or something. Otherwise you wouldn't say that. You don't numb anything. You feel everything a lot stronger, also the "bad stuff". That's what these horror trips are about. I would recommend everybody who has ...

Re: mind pattern

yes, very good answer, kiki! From the perspective which you really are , the perspective of seeing, this so-called "problematic" mind-pattern is just seen. Pure seeing doesn't judge the object of perception. What thinks has to be rid of something is your idea of "me", your false self, your ego, call...
