Re: Is a photon the basic unit of information flow?

...... in this case, I hope you first choose "accept it totally" and then choose "change it" but definitely do not choose "remove yourself from the situation" .

Re: Is Western Philosophy helpful at all?

I enjoyed reading the dialog between Phil2 and Ashley. I find that to try and convince or debate this kind of stuff just leads to more of the same ... unless of course you leave yourself out of the equation and then see what arises but that is the hard part, isn't it ? This reminds me of what Jean K...

Re: Mooji - the "remove everything" game

I've been playing with Mooji's analogy of removing everything about you to find out what is left. What Mooji is pointing to is " can the seer be seen ? " ... and if the seer can be seen then what is it that sees that ? He is not looking for an answer here, he just wants you to look there and see. T...

Re: A Satsang with Jac O'Keefe

Eliminating the story, peeling off the layers of crushed expectations, is an important first step to get to that seed inside. But what is the goal? Complete detachment, or loving engagement? So what is the goal ? ... I would say loving engagement and definitely not detachment ..... because detachme...

Re: A Satsang with Jac O'Keefe

I don't know. Is it? Explain that to me please. Well, here is another way of looking at it ..... perhaps Jac was trying to get this woman to see her sister in a different light by taking a different approach whenever she thinks about her sister . In the case of the photo, by her practicing to be ne...

Re: A Satsang with Jac O'Keefe

. Ms. O’Keefe suggested the woman get a photo of her sister and practice looking at it while feeling neutral. This seemed to suggest that the solution was detachment. I kept waiting for Ms. O’Keefe to use the word “love” but she never did. If it hadn’t been the end of the satsang I would have gotte...

Re: True Happiness/Loneliness

Go figure, .... when it comes to talk about true happiness, the mind does not have much to say about it but it certainly has lots to say when it talks about loneliness.

Re: Spiritual Advice Is Just That - Spiritual Advice

Don't you believe that many of our thoughts and feelings are organically produced because of childhood events? They will never go away until we revisit the cause and process those events. Yes, I agree ..... this reminds me of a quote I read a while back and that stuck with me since. " memories buri...

Re: "We Are All Innocent..." A Must Read...

I have not read the book but I love the title " We are All Innocent By Reason of Insanity".
This remind's me of the quote , " Be in the world but not of it",

You see ...'to be in the world and of it' is Insanity but 'to be in the world but not of it' returns you to Innocence.

Re: negative thoughts

Hello cloud, This is a good place to be. You see, the seeker itself has to be investigated. Negative thoughts only have energy because the one having the negative thoughts energies them. So, I suggest that instead of losing yourself in thoughts , investigate the one that is having the negative thoug...

Re: Certain situations pull me out of the present moment.Adv

So my question is can I apply any of Eckhart's teachings to this particular situation? Presence plays a big role here. My advice is instead of losing yourself in the fear, be present with it as it arises. Somehow, when you are present with the fear and allow it to be instead of trying to avoid it o...

Re: Losing presence outside home

My advice is face the outside world by bringing presence to your day to day experiences especially outside the home. See if you can catch yourself every time you lose this presence by getting lost in your mind which triggers you to get back to your place of safety (your house). Investigate this. The...
