Re: Anxiety while writing/producing songs

Tucker, whenever you feel an emotion, particularly a negative emotion such as anxiety, immediately put your awareness into your body. Feel the emotion in your body, and the emotion will dissolve fairly quickly(in a matter of minutes). You need to deal with the emotion directly, and the only way to d...

Re: Bursts of anger and irritation after Eckhart Tolle??

Give yourself a break if you don't catch it early. It rises fast. The good news is, if you fail to catch it as a thought, you can still catch it as an emotion in the body. So you get two chances to deal with it directly and decisively. :) freedompresence, whenever you feel an emotion, particularly ...

Re: My Songs I wrote

You did a good job with the songs. Quite catchy. I like the butterfly song. :)

Did you write the lyrics only, or did you play the instruments and sing too?

Re: Morning Heaviness & Learned Helplessness

This "morning heaviness" happens to everybody. It is a continuum of the unconsciouness of sleep into the unconsciouness of daily existence. It is most noticeable in the morning(and evening) when there are few distractions. It is an all-day heaviness. The good news is that whenever you are aware of i...

Re: the presence of others

Be present. In the state of presence, there is no negativity, and you will not be affected by the negativity of other people. And neither will you judge any situation as negative.

Re: I am having headaches

You are experiencing headaches because you are trying too hard. :) Don't focus on your thoughts - this is the very reason for the headaches - your mind should be passive, not focused. It is a gentle process. Just be aware of the voice(s) in your head whenever you 'hear' it throughout the day. Pay at...

Re: Is thinking always bad?

Thinking is not bad, but always thinking is very bad. :) Thinking has a very specific use, such as to solve a problem or to do your job. You think to get something done, and then it has no further use. Compulsive thinking is the problem. Not being able to stop thinking is the problem. Incessant thin...

Re: Who am I? I am so lost

Don't analyse your thoughts and feelings. That is the quickest path to insanity. You would be better off paying a psychiatrist to do it for you. Thoughts and feelings are endless, like cloud formations. They come and go. Don't care about them. Don't give them any importance. Listen to the voice in y...

Re: I don't know who I am...?

So my question is, how have you all finally realized what it is you are supposed to do with your life? How did you come to terms with things and just feel at peace? The primary purpose of your life is to be present. Then you will be aligned with life and stop resisting it. Resistance is like fricti...

The true nature of joy

Hi all. I've had the pleasure of experiencing joy whilst fully present, and got to observe it consciously and intimately. I have seen a few threads where people had asked why they weren't feeling any joy. They had thought that they knew what it was, but they really didn't. And that is why I would li...

Re: Someone help me please...

I can't feel joy. You say that you have experienced presence, and wonder why you can't feel joy. It is because you were never present. It was just a thought in your head. :) Presence is very satisfying. It is blissful. Joy is spontaneous and arises from this background of bliss. Sometimes you may f...
