Re: exhausted from trying to convey "the now"

Hello all, "Exhausted from trying to convey "the now" " Having read those words it was immediately felt that there could never be exhaustion in that which is inexhaustible. Yes, that is it. One feels one does not have to separate oneself from one's very Being "in order to convey something", which i...

Re: exhausted from trying to convey "the now"

Help them, only if it helps you. If it helps you, it helps them and all of us. Thank you Onceler: Yes, the process did help me in seeing other people's view on something I have experienced deeply. Although I have gone through that, when explaining and describing to others, I am surprised to find pe...

Re: Dreams

Hello Kath, I have a very different view about dreams. I believe that your dreams let you know consciously, what you're feeling spiritually. How your conscious life and activities feel to you on a spiritual level. Thanks, Norm I think this makes alot of sense. I will definitely check out the website.

Re: Not all animals are continuously living in the present!

Hello "TheNow", If you feel a strong compassion for animals, you should definitely try to help animals as much as you can - but do not identify with this worthy cause. You should also investigate where this compassion comes from. However, do not make the mistake of considering that people who don't...

Re: Not all animals are continuously living in the present!

3) Is natural selection on the agenda of universal consciousness? ( Isn't this how the foos chain works, without which, there will be too many rabbits, if there is no eagles hunting them to balance the whole system.) I would say that everything is happening as it is supposed to, but it certainly do...

Re: Not all animals are continuously living in the present!

I think this is an interesting question. I often wonder whether or not my cat lose sleep because of something that he is not happy about, such as "Why was today's food so bad?" "Why didn't I see any birds flying by today?" " Tomorrow I have to go to next door and scratch that other damn cat. He look...

Re: exhausted from trying to convey "the now"

It's like the mother complaining about her screaming child. The screaming child isn't the problem. The mother's reaction is the problem. When the mother realizes that all the suffering is caused by her own mind, she becomes free. Not only that, but ironically, the child will probably stop screaming...

Re: Inner energy

You know how if someone is leaving us, someone we are so attached to and has almost been a big part of our identity, on which we build our self esteem, happiness, hope, dreams,...then there will also be a part where we think that maybe if we try a little harder, give it one more chance, talk to that...

Re: Inner energy

During meditation, you become very sensitive and very simple. You weed out insignificant things and you find yourself doing the most essential. A sentence such as “ I just need to feel this” can be too complicated for you to really feel what it means. After a few times, you will feel that in this se...

Re: Dreams

If you are interested in what dreams are and how they work, Kurt Leland's "The unanswered questions" and "Otherwhere" provide a lot of insights on this topic. How he explains dreams is that when we dream, we are in a confined zone in the astral to watch what play out from our subconsciousness. In or...

Re: Inner energy

Truth can also only be experienced with multi-sensory. As a result, you can even feel there is something that's over and above all these sensory to coordinate and oversee this experience. On the other hand, you even feel less interest in logical explanation. I remember when I visited some meditation...

Re: Inner energy

I would try to describe how each mantra came on to me. I think it's more like in that state of emptiness, these things just show up one or two at a time. First you feel like the state become stuck and you want to go deeper. So you try to listen and feel what else is there. Then "honesty" was the fir...

Inner energy

This is what my own experiences are about inner energy 1. Inner energy is the medium for us to connect with our expanded consciousness or authentic self. Without this inner energy get flowing, even when we hear words of truth, we understand it only intellectually. But you can't understand truth. You...
