Re: HEllo All Newbie here

Welcome, Star! As far as my health goes, I have been walking between 6 or 10 miles a day for quite some time, lost 75 lbs and completely changed my eating habits to mostly live/raw food, juicing etc. My enthusiasm and desrie and diminished for walking and this new phase of working on the inner me no...

Re: A sort of hell?

Whatever I say is of course from my point of view. I've gone from an outlook of confusion and depression to one which is creative and enjoyable and not susceptible to emotional pain and confusion. I've relied mostly on techniques and I've read or listened to people like Tolle, Jed Mckenna, John Sher...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

Good post, E2B. I see it the same way. So, when we come on to this internet forum and we see someone posting as Jack is posting, it's very easy to take the perspective of the rest of modern science and mainstream medicine that this person is indeed insane because he/she does not match up with the su...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

It's like this is becoming such a regular cycle of my life... There is a back-and-forth nature to awakening and to depression, and probably at your age, your cycles are more rapid. I think many people here will tell you that they often feel like it's three-steps-forward-two-steps-back. I'll be hone...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

I agree about the disrespectful feeling being something we do to ourselves. I was exploring that yesterday. I came to the conclusion that I was creating the perspective of disrespect for myself. Rather than karma creating it within me, he was just highlighting a way that I already perceived myself ...

Re: Determinism Makes Me Feel Helpless

Hi Danny, I have not read through all of this thread--I am responding only to the depression part. Depression and anxiety are what brought me to awakening. Depression, my view, is our most honest response to life as most of us live it. When you don't know who you are, and most of us do not, the most...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

Jen, I'm not concerned. As with another friend here, watching his recent decline into dissonance, I am merely observing insanity and in a wider context, observing in others the fascinating conformance from the fear of appearing not-spiritual-enough. To be clear, it's not the non-physical nature or h...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

Anyone can say anything and then say that they did not intend to disrespect another. Well, people can have delusions of grandeur and message of division and claim it's really in the perspective of inclusion. What exactly have I said that has offended you? I am not offended. What needs to observed a...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

... it's still incredibly valuable to me to be disrespected and conflicted... There was no disrespect or conflict in my perspective; only inclusion, for all human beings are already saved. I cannot say why we choose the level of sanity or consciousness that we do. My view is that an enlightened per...

Re: I Am Enlightened - Open Hearted Sincerity

This is kind of strange. Which part? There are 15 pages. :lol: Not sure if I wanted to get into the milieu. I often send people here as this can be a place to find solace during the heavier times of awakening. But right now I would be hard-pressed to explain the recent going-ons. The ego-whacker-wh...

Re: Tom Campbell-Holographic Evolution

However the seeing (or observation) of ego at work is NOT the same as defending our opinions (which is ego vs ego) ... because the seeing precisely is the only action (or 'non-action' in fact) that can dissolve ego ... like the seeing of a mirage dispels the illusion ... True. And perhaps what peop...

Re: Tom Campbell-Holographic Evolution

Btw, sorry dijmart of accusing you of not letting go of your grudge towards Phil, I'm no better because I keep coming back to drama. I'm attracted to this like a moth is to a flame. That's quite honest. This energy, the attraction to drama, fighting fire with fire, seems to be persistent. It can ta...

Re: Tom Campbell-Holographic Evolution

The study of the physical universe is not the problem. The problem is the belief in physicality alone like another form of religion which is where the modern atheist movement seems to be heading. Anything that can't be proven physically is said not to exist, not understanding that physicality and w...
