Re: Awareness Of Ego In Others?

Sport is very much fun. Competition is very much fun. Unless its taken too seriously. Unless one thinks it really matters who wins, that it is of any importance how the result is. Then the fun is gone and axiety and possibly agression replace it. Supporting our team at the world championchip is defi...

Re: Awareness Of Ego In Others?

Hey bottian, welcome to the board, enjoy your stay here. I understand the ego to be the concept of identification with one's mind. And yet say you observe someone who, in this moment, is identified with their mind, surely they have an ego? Therefore the ego exists? The term "ego" is convention Eckha...

Re: Awareness Of Ego In Others?

Since reading TPON I am very aware of my own ego and also of being surrounded everywhere I go by other people's ego's. I can accutely see the madness all around me and it scares me a bit! Are you aware that ego is only a concept? Ego doens't exist until you think it into reality. If you see ego's i...

Re: enlightenment,not for me at the moment thanks.

Great post. Ties in with what I feel about this enlightment business lately. I wonder where to draw the line, how much freedom is possible without ending your personal world, how much joy is available though being attached to a personal life. I am reading "How long is now" at the moment which sort o...

Re: Non-Duality

All those sanskript terms make your text feel familiar, Ananda. :)
Btw. your interpretation of the Gita makes me want to pick it up again. Did you seriously study it or did you just read through it, seeing how it resonated with you?

Re: The Quest For Afterlife

Once a janitor, who was cleaning the temple after services, overheard two distinguished rabbis having a lively discussion about the immensity of God and their own insignificance. The first rabbi proclaimed, “God is a huge ocean and I am but a small fish.” The second rabbi responded, “God is greater ...

Re: Some thoughts about The Past....

Is this something Tolle would have us lose? Hey john. ET's teachings are not a guide of how to behave under certain conditions. Its about realizing who we are. Its about letting go of control, about life living through you. "Life is the dancer, and we are the dance", Eckhart says. If you make plans...

Re: Love for the other gender. What makes her the one for you?

Hey Tommes. There was a similar situation in my life not too long ago. At a certain point I just stopped thinking about the whole story I had made up around the relationship. Its so true that the present moment contains all the wisdom you`ll ever need. You don`t have to figure out what to do. You do...

Re: I think I may just need a little push?

Let the beauty of your presence be felt -- your true Self. See them as "sourcebeams" (Danison), not egos. Look into their eyes and see yourself. Wonderful. Being is the soul of every interaction. True listening is the heart of every conversation and sharing your presence is the most beautiful gift ...

Re: I think I may just need a little push?

The mind is the one searching to improve itself to become perfect. That will never happen since the mind is by it's very nature imperfect. I assume you mean that the mind-created self-image through identification with form in by its nature imperfect? Part of this self-image is the identification wi...
