Re: exhausted from trying to convey "the now"

Just left another website, after almost a year of trying to convey the meaning of the now, as well as the deep meaning of meditation. The website? Just curious to the part of you that feels compelled to convert this group to your way of thinking. Peace Randji This is where it gets confusing. What a...

Re: experiences similar to OBE

Just got back to this site after a long time. I have had many more experiences, but those are just like icing on the cake. Whether it's OBE, or the total bliss of the now, I have found that the most difficult part on the path is to shift between our inner purpose and outer purpose. We can easily be ...

exhausted from trying to convey "the now"

Just left another website, after almost a year of trying to convey the meaning of the now, as well as the deep meaning of meditation. It was just very hard. People on that site totally dismiss the idea that the perception of suffering is in the responsibility of the individuals. They think victims a...

Re: how the bliss and awe slipped away after 2 years

From p. 18, 19 in "Stillness Speaks", by Eckhart Tolle: The mind exists in a state of "not enough" and so is always greedy for more. When you are identified with mind, you get bored and restless very easily. Boredom means the mind is hungry for more stimulus, more food for thought, and its hunger i...

Thanks HL, I have not heard Unborn Nature yet, I will check it out. Allowing everything to be as it is, and the inquiry method, Is often attributed to Ramana Maharshi's teaching, and it has become the core of many modern non-dual teachings. Ramana said: " let what comes, come... Let what goes, go.....

Re: A child's voice in my head

My experience was that I had many old songs came back to me after many years, songs that have escaped from me with their tones and lyrics. During my peak experience period, many old songs just appeared on my mind out of nowhere. I would sing these songs one by one and was so surprised at the same ti...

how the bliss and awe slipped away after 2 years

Just registered on this site and had my first post a few days ago. I would like to bring up a question I remembered I faced and didn't resolve last time. After I went through all the peak experiences, there came a time when I just didn't know what to do during meditation anymore. Of course, the poin...

Re: experiences similar to OBE

Hi thenow, Great, whenever I ask "what's next" I get no where...see nothing.... You see, at that point we fall back to the Ego consciousness. Curious, searching.... I have accepted that...if I still experience "suffering" then the now is the only thing I need, surrender is the only way to go and th...

Re: experiences similar to OBE

....Yet the most profound experience to me is the immense stillness and self love I found during meditation, which usually carry on to the daily life and ground me like nothing else. Glad to find a nice place here to share experiences. I hope to pick up my speed with the PON practice once again. Mo...

Re: experiences similar to OBE

I hope you are aware that awakening is about discovering your true nature and not about pursuing interesting, mystical, paranormal, or peak experiences. Such experiences may be intriguing but they can also propel you on a path that will only delay the discovery of your true nature. Don't get me wro...

experiences similar to OBE

Hi, I am new to this site, but I have posted my experiences in other sites. My peak experiences were from 2002-2005, the result of a relationship failure and a spontaneious initiation of energy from within, which I had to sit down to maditate to connect with it after walking around carrying the ener...
