Re: Presence

tkm, What you are talking about is actually what I have figured out as well. I think we were talking about the same thing all along, but maybe just misunderstanding each other. I don't advocate silencing the mind in able to become enlightened. I do, however, say that often when investigating into th...

Yes, very good. This is even better. But don't come up with an answer for this question. An answer is not IT. Answers are also known.

Re: Ego..... The theif that robs me every minute

I'm referring to being rob of the present moment, and naming my ego as the culprit. Okay. So, is there a time when the present moment is not? Is there a time when it is not now? Who is the ego, and who is the one you refer to as "my" in "my ego"? I didn't know any other word to use expect ME. I see...

Re: Presence

Mind doesnt have any conscious interest in not being mind (it wouldnt be possible), even if its projecting its identity as something which is beyond itself or watching itself. What mind does have an unconscious interest in, is cultivating mind states, which is why I like to make the focus about wha...

Re: Presence

This is the illusion, and what a good spiritual practice will get ya. Your mind is still thinking thoughts, its not "extinct". It cant actually die anyway, let alone kill itself. If you havent noticed, it keeps coming back, and has no intention of staying "killed", only suppressed for periods of ti...

Re: Presence

but we talk about mind's abidance so it can understand what its doing. This is not what I am talking about. There’s nothing wrong with suppression, its just not something that a conscious mind would consciously do. If a mind was suppressing its own movements with a neti neti approach I'm not talkin...

Okay. Let's put it another way. Let's instead call it to withdraw importance from whatever arises. You know, it's hard to convey something on an internet forum without using concepts.

Re: Presence

The conditioned mind calling itself nothing is a great way to keep its own conditioning safe from the scorch of those sun rays. Yes, for sure. But SEEING that the mind is nothing will leave it in the desert alone with the Sun. Neti neti turns into some procedure for mind to perform to abide in some...

Another concept, another phenomenon. Throw it away. Be daring and throw it all away. Look at where the answers arise. Where are the answers before they arise?

Re: Presence

Yes, but the mind isn't that. THe mind can't touch that, see that, be that, and yet, mind couldnt appear without THAT's heavenly touch. The mind is nothing. It's nothing. It's a little speck. Thoughts appear hear and there, arising and subsiding. It is nothing. It truly is like a shadow, only visib...
