Re: Experimenting with Consciousness

Hey Kutso, I'm not familiar with Sri Nisargadatta but I think the illusion he is talking about is the illusion of separateness. To write-off one's entire existence as an illusion is kind of pointless. Actually he is talking about everything being an illusion. Everything you perceive is illusory. On...

Re: Surrender to Now

My question is, if I am to surrender to now, what if I don't like the now that I'm living in? I suppose I could try to just do something mundane, like take a walk or organize my clothes or something, but for how long? The thing is, you don't have to do anything at all. Doing nothing at all is just ...

Re: Smoking!!!

I smoke...I dont want to smoke...I still smoke... Who is it that don't wanna smoke? Who is it that wants to keep smoking. Seems like everyone has the opinion that smoking is bad for you. Why? It's not bad. It's not good either. It just is. Smoking happens, or smoking doesn't happen. Putting a label...

Re: Experimenting with Consciousness

It is a good experiment. Kinda makes you wonder though. Is there someone imagining us? Maybe I'm just in the imagination of someone else. And that's exactly what Sri Nisargadatta talks about when he says that you cannot be sure of anything. Anything but the sense "I am". This is all just a dream. An...

Reminds me of the title of that wonderful song by the Smiths (back in the 1980s): "How Soon Is Now?"

Any day now.
Isn't that also the theme song to "Charmed"? You know, that tv-series about the three witches.

Re: The Ego is Seeking Enlightenment

The thing that Leonard recommends you do at this point is to acknowledge the ego by saying, "Yes darling, you are the most enlightened of them all," and bring yourself back to Presence. Evan Would'nt that be the ego telling itself that it's the most enlightened of them all? The ego coming back thro...

Reminder

Here's a little reminder of what you all are: "Discover all that you are not -- body, feelings thoughts, time, space, this or that -- nothing, concrete or abstract, which you perceive can be you. The very act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive." -Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj This quo...
