Re: A Quality No?

Yeah, I probably came to this stuff similar to how you were when you were my age. What do you think catalyzed or triggered your big event in 2008? How would you describe it now? "...once the seeking stops." I'm not sure I understand this...do you mean "once a person wakes up?" Or do you mean "once a...

Re: A Quality No?

Remember, if you're not in one of those states stop doing whatever it is you are doing (or participating in) and be honest with yourself as well as others. If you are not willing the contraction is won't (will not), not 'can't (cannot) so be mindful of using can't instead of won't, it's an avoidanc...

Re: A Quality No?

Andy, just out of curiosity how would you describe their personalities? I saw a video of Nisargadatta and he seemed like the loud gregarious type, with Ramana being the soft-spoken type. And ever since posting here about this issue I've made it a point to give people the firm "no", but its something...

Things dont happen, in regards to "me"

Lately I've been noticing how things just happen. Me typing this to express my thoughts is just happening. Me responding to a text message I received is happening. Me studying the material in a textbook is happening. But none of this has to do with "me", in the sense I have any responsibility over i...

Re: A Quality No?

I have a problem with this too. With some people I've been susceptible to be treated like a doormat, mostly because of my people pleasing personality and upbringing. But I think I've accidentally mixed up acceptance with allowing people to do whatever they want to me.

Re: Question about Aloofness

Well thank you for those responses. :) Itay, I think you just inspired me to ask about another topic. So there is this aspect of love. I know its been talked about by various spiritual teachers and is what Sufism revolves around. But honestly, how does it tie into spirituality? I really like how the...

Question about Aloofness

Lately I've been feeling really relaxed, I go about my day, study for my classes and generally take care of business. I was doing the same stuff I'm doing now not too long ago, but I was so intense about everything, and so caught up with the end result with all of my activities. Now I have this feel...

Re: Saving the Planet

I loved how Mooji listened to her without judgment when she spoke out of her emotional hysteria, but when he felt he got an understanding of what she was saying, he said "Enough".

Re: Should I just quit self-enquiry?

I can relate to you definitely. And I can relate as well to tall the posters and their advice. You've come to realize all of your neuroses, quirks, and whatnot are events that occur within awareness, so is whatever your facing right now, is it not? Does awareness not include the feeling of being inc...

Re: Don't know where 'I' am at anymore

I found the clip from Mooji great. I love the way he addresses the various issues mind comes up with only to reiterate that all of it comes back to awareness. I've been exploring the various aspects of what goes on in my Psyche. There's a lot of shame, embarrassment, and pain, and I think that yes, ...

Re: A Constant Restlessness

Thanks for that mikenike. I've been dedicated a lot of private time towards just sitting with what is, which is usually pain buried within. Most of my day is spent being attentive and focused towards school work and towards socializing with people, but when I get home and I finish whatever that need...

Re: feeling very emotional all the time

So is strangling my mother to the point where she hopefully learns not to push my buttons any more simply an event that occurs within consciousness? Maybe it is, but isn't there something very wrong with engaging in such an action?

A Constant Restlessness

I've begun to notice some of the things that go on inside me that I have often overlooked. A lot of sorrow/loneliness I was noticing for a little while. But also I've begun to notice a constant restlessness/discontent that carries on into so many things I do. My actions/motivations are driven by tho...

Re: Looking back - Ha!

Okay, well, yeah, Key Master, I like what you said. In your last post, I feel like that statement fits me pretty well. I avoid my desires because of some fear, there is a push and pull between what I want and me fearing those wants. I think my depiction of the middle way was a little off. In my expe...
