The process of experiencing "now" being our truest being

Yes, when we really experience "now" being "the truth", everything becomes effortless. There is nothing we need to do, because it is when we are not doing anything, trying to go anywhere else, that we are in our truest orignal being. When we arrive at "I" being " this", if we ask "what is the truth"...

Re: Don't we all suffer from OCD of thoughts and emotionos

In OCD and hoarders, the stuff is innocent. The goal of treating OCD and hoarder is not to get rid of all stuff, but to be able to organize what we have, and to utilize the space we have. The problem is not that we are trying to lose thoughts, emotions, memories, and stories. The problem is when we ...

Don't we all suffer from OCD of thoughts and emotionos

I found the A&E series "OCD" and "Hoarder" to be the depiction of the same behavior--- people in the show hoard stuff; we one the other hand, are obsessive compulsive thinkers and hoarders of thoughts, emotions, and memories. The people in the show engage in all kinds of compulsive behaviors--checki...

The discovery of self love and God's love in the core

At the point where "I" and "this" are the same, it's not yet the sense of love. In other words, even when we experience that "I" is "being", we don't necessarily experience "love" yet. But at the height of this point, it does feel like everything just dissolve away. We feel really great after a whil...

Re: symptoms of awaking

Thank you Sightclone for your encouragement and warm words. I really appreciate! I think I am just one of the many who are currently waking up. Everyone is waking up in their own way. The most I can do is just sharing my experiences. The energy that comes with the inner waking is not all pretty and ...

"I" becomes "this"

The rocking and swaying will stop quickly once the inward flowing gets going. You just feel you want to stay that way, as if you are surfing the waves and taking the ride. You are sucked inward but are balanced in a way that you feel great doing it. At this point, whether or not there are two "I" do...

the road to OBE and the road to inner core

I have found one thing that works very well and important on both paths: the separation of two bodies, or two "I". In OBE attempt, the first step is to try to relax and activate the energy body. So that we can separate. In meditation, we should also bypass all techniques and methods, and just go rig...

Re: symptoms of awaking

Thank you Steph I really appreciate you have enjoyed the read and wish me well. I think the scariet part of the whole thing is the letting go. It was very scary to me to go forward without the relationship that has become my self identity for so many years. At the time, I was all by myself in the ne...

Re: Is There Something To Do?

Thank you for sharing, James. From what I experienced, I would try to compare how to "do nothing" in meditation, and in real life. Doing nothing in meditation doesn't mean sitting there without any proactive direction to go, otherwise for many of us, we would fall asleep. Although we are supposed to...

Re: symptoms of awaking

Thank you Onceler for reading! However the process of awakening is not a walk in the park. It is the result of, I would say, a painful death and then rebirth process. One thing that turned me around from my misery to awakening a few years ago was like this: I was putting all my focus in the relation...

Re: Inquiry is a way of avoiding the pain?

All these answers above are so helpful and true! I usually do inquiry as a way to focus in the inner world too. If I hit a point of doubt, boredom, resistence, I simply switch my mantra to "admit this" " Admit everything" " Am I resisting anything?" "Am I pretending anything?" Once I admit that I am...

symptoms of awaking

The following are just some things I can put into words. These lasted for two years and more and still have them today, just with less intensity. 1. One day I realized that I became genuinely happy for no reason. I asked myself: why am I so happy? The muscle on my face just felt like to smile all th...

Re: experiences similar to OBE

Hi, I haven't been written on this board or other sites, for a while now. I was swamped at work after been promoted early this year. I didn't get to take a deep breath until recently. While gaining a little space and time for myself, the same old question from before come back to me: What if I die t...
