Re: Still having a lot of trouble with obsessive thoughts

I don't know how to stop reacting and tensing up to these thoughts. I don't care about the thoughts themselves so much as I do the physical reactions to them. Trying to not tense up to them seems to just make me tense up more. I have no idea what to do. Please help. Thanks everyone I suggest you ta...

Re: Letting go of Spiritual Practice

So here's my 'fly in the ointment' concern. Most people make no effort towards awakening. They live their lives in the stories they tell themselves as they relate to the world around them and the experiences that come their way. Precious few actually awaken. And when some realization of greater clar...

Re: Question about feeling your emotions

I have a quick question about something I tend to get confused about. So..we know that we are supposed allow and fully feel our emotions (good and bad) Now sometimes I wonder if I'm simply letting my emotions be and feeling them, or if I'm giving them too much attention and therefore, prolonging th...

Re: How can I not be selfish or should I do what I feel?

When you say to find a way to reorganize your thinking and to be more more inclusive, is this to consider other possibilities other than what one perceives? Or, if you can give an example. There are lots of ways to do this. The important thing is that rethinking must be based in truth from a larger...

Re: Feeling of "not deserving"

No doubt there are a good many valuable tips to consider. Here is one that I have found that has made a considerable difference in my life experience. The art of appreciation.

Re: Feeling of "not deserving"

I agree with Rob X. The guilt and shame are self-imposed and quite unnecessary. We are all capable of all manor of curious acts as we grow from a young age and explore the world around us and within us. It's best that we learn from the past but do not hang on to it. This moment is what matters. If y...

Re: How can I not be selfish or should I do what I feel?

Where are the boundaries to know when you are not in alignment? Remember, emotions are triggered by the beliefs that we hold. You can justify them, or resist them, or amplify them, or whatever; but beliefs are what matter. Emotions are symptoms of those underlying beliefs. When you get emotional, s...

Re: How can I not be selfish or should I do what I feel?

Emotions are a great topic to explore. I'm trying to understand the idea of how someone can make you feel bad. Pardon my use of metaphors and analogies, but I find them very often quite helpful. How is it that you can type the letter "I" on your computer screen? The most basic answer is that your ke...

Re: Wandering mind

I found this community so just wanted to ask if it seems like I am doing something wrong or if its normal. Welcome to the forum. I would say it is quite normal. The things in our psyche that bring us pain tend to be well established from a long history of conditioning beliefs. So when we discover s...

Re: A Meditation and Realization Journal

I think your approach to self exploration will produce great dividends. Like many people, I've found that writing from a perspective of deepest understanding, is an excellent way to align with our own higher nature. We can feel our way to greater clarity if we can make the distinction between feelin...

Re: Last night

Has anyone else had a similar experience? I'm sure many have had a similar experience. One consideration however, when it relates to Tolle's teachings, is whether he was the first to raise such 'enlightenment' within you; or whether he was later in a longer chain of similarly inspiring teachers. We...

Re: Inner body(energy field)

Welcome to the forum Adugna12. My take on sensing the inner body is this: When you're in meditation or even going to sleep, there is a point when the body relaxes to a point where the conscious mind can disengage from it and just be. Body awareness fades out as a relaxation state takes over. Conscio...
