Re: Isn't being single the cause of pain and suffering?

Is being single the cause of pain and suffering for others? It has been for me. Being single and wanting a relationship has caused me suffering and I spent quite some time inquiring into that. I have done some of Byron Katie’s work on it initially and it helped to separate from the sadness and suff...

Musicians in the cosmic orchestra

I came across this wonderful quote and I wanted to share. Musicians in the cosmic orchestra There's a big difference between you as the musician and the music that you're playing in the cosmic orchestra. Sometimes, you'll all play together. Sometimes, though, you'll be required to play all alone. An...

Andy, I cannot find this on page 401 of my Talks book. I notice I have the second edition. Do you know if it is somewhere else in the second edition? It's a beautiful quote, thanks.

Re: Hello, I'm whimsical

Hi whimsical, I think maybe I am addicted to the need for my mother's approval, thing is it will never come Now that you know that, you can let go with love releasing her from any hold you perceive she has over your life. When we look for others’ approval, we end up chasing someone else’s definition...

Re: right relationship w/ thought? not identify w/ ANY thought?

In my experience, the more I told myself to not hook on to the thought, the stronger the pull and hook. If I focus on thought/mind, stories start spinning. But if I focus my attention on that which is prior to arising thoughts, somehow I feel more peaceful. Really understanding that thoughts come an...

Re: Exercise and Presence

Great thread and it’s been said here wonderfully. I think exercise is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself. When I used to run a lot, I remember that time being the only time when thoughts completely emptied as I ran. Nothing else did it, and I was clearly in the now. The times I felt ...

Living in the now does not mean we become doormats for anyone to walk on. See the situation for what it is and respond accordingly. Drama is drama. Go there or not.

Re: Joy being alone...

Hi Amprox-1, I think it’s great that you’ve met yourself and enjoy being with what is. Here’s part of something I’ve read from Osho. We are born alone, we live alone, and we die alone. Aloneness is our very nature, but we are not aware of it. Because we are not aware of it, we remain strangers to ou...

Re: Who's read "Born to be Free" by Jac O'Keeffe

love this book, simple and clearly written. Many authors are pointing to the same thing, just saying it in different ways - some resonating more than others. Chapter 2 - Experience - I thought was wonderfully written. She speaks of being lovable and capable from the perspective of our true nature in...

Re: Transmission

I’m not sure about transmission but I can sense someone who emanates peace and compassion whether I am in their presence or not. I look at a picture of Ramana Maharshi and his eyes speak volumes to me. I can hear Gangaji or Jac O’Keeffe or Eckhart speaking in Stillness Speaks and it’s like their voi...

Re: Learned Paranoid Thinking.

Hi Chariot, When you grow up in such an environment it seems normal to you because it's all you know, and you pick up a sort of paranoid perspective from viewing the world through the eyes of your parent. It seems that way. Although I’m not exactly sure mental illness was in my biological family, I ...
