Re: Eckhart on Loneliness?

"suffering does not arise from loneliness but from the fear of loneliness... that's a mental projection that says, 'you are going to be alone for the rest of your life.' And it's added to the story of me... the one who is now without a relationship, completely alone. That gets incorporated into the...

Re: Strange Energy

It sounds like your mind has a lot of momentum and energy at the moment, which draws your attention away from the now since you're stuck in your head rather than being in the moment The mind is like a garden, if left unattended, any and all seeds (thoughts) that drift into it's space will take root ...

Re: How Can I Know What I Came Here on Earth For? ?

I lived as you did for many years, the desire for control was an almost electrical buzzing in the back of my head, like an energy driving you to DO as much as possible, to make progress, to get to the next level The best advice I can think of is this: Don't look for what your overall life purpose mi...

Re: Psychedelics

I am interested in the implications of the experiences people had. If chemicals open pathways to other realities or make us experience life more intensely or cause us to have something like an NDE or an exit from this world, then what does it say about the nature of "mystical experiences" that are ...

Re: Job interview - just for fun

Sounds vaguely reminiscent of the job interview I had in the Netherlands last year Most of it was the normal talk of previous job experiences, with a more optimistic viewpoint than I usually have once I'm actually doing the job (pessimistic viewpoint helps to manage expectations of how long things w...

Re: psychic power and 'awakening'

Last Saturday night I had a dream that I was going to be on the Patio at work in the 100 degree heat on Sunday. I woke up and dismissed it as rubbish as I have NEVER had patio on Sunday. Then my mom mentioned something about getting the patio in the car on the way to work. "Nah mom, I never get tha...

Re: The Dry Salvages by T.S. Eliot

No worries, I have taken to saying "praise is like sunshine; enjoy it while it lasts"

The Dry Salvages by T.S. Eliot

“Men's curiosity searches past and future And clings to that dimension. But to apprehend The point of intersection of the timeless With time, is an occupation for the saint— No occupation either, but something given And taken, in a lifetime's death in love, Ardour and selflessness and self-surrender...

Re: The Nothing Box

1. Do any of you enjoy your Nothing Boxes? (Come on, admit it!) Every night and most weekends 2. What kind of state is one in when in their Nothing Box? It's not exactly awake but not asleep, not presence but has a hint of it (calm, open, me-less (kinda)). Far fewer thoughts arise, mostly just killi...
