Re: Conscious of Consciousness

Is there an outside agent that illuminates the sun? Of course not; it illuminates itself. It's the same with consciousness - it is "self-revealing". No outside agent is necessary for consciousness to be known. I would say that the sun illuminates objects , while you are saying it illuminates itself...

Re: Conscious of Consciousness

So the solution is to be everything. How to be everything? Negate self reflection. Self reflection is the cause of separation. And what is left is the senses and sensational reality, the inner body reality. I am one with now which is one with the body and the senses."I" in this case is pure intelli...

Re: Cleaning yourself up, balancing yourself

Practice being a body rather than a mind. The one who does this does not become less intelligent, on the contrary he or she becomes more intelligent. Practice self denial. Instead of aimless thinking and speculating, practice being in the senses and feeling the inner body. The mind/self/ego hates th...

Re: Entrance Exam for Forum.

I sort this out by copying and pasting the big word into 'Google' and up comes a Dictionary or Wikipedia. One useful word I use regularly which I should define is; substantive This describes the quality of feelings and sensations. They are substantive but not substantial. Substantial is of the matte...

Re: Fixed reference point

the pure sensation of the whole body is psychically deeper and more constant than the breath. It is formless and unbounded. Seems to me the sensation of the body is bounded by the form of the body. Awareness of the body isn't some transcendent nondual state. It's just a tool to bring attention out ...

Re: Certain urges, impulses, feelings.

That is a curious feeling. I emigrated from UK to Australia several years ago and it has worked out well.

So why not look at ways to take a holiday to America, to see if it 'zings' with you?

And it is good that you can identify your desires clearly.

Re: I don't think Eckhart has fully awakened

Well said Webwanderer. Your logical analysis rings true to me. I see false 'self' as a mental and emotional construct. People often see it as just mental but without the force of accompanied emotion or feeling it would be a less convincing show. I see it as all self here, and the best we can do is t...

Re: Conscious of Consciousness

Consciousness can't be known as an object, one can only be Consciousness. As soon as there is a separation, a trying to know it or the sense of knowing something then that is not it. So the solution is to be everything.

Re: No 'You' to act

I don't know.. the sense of wanting to improve is still there but just weaker. It's a good question regarding by who's standards, I'd say my own, I want better for myself, its probably because I've always been shy, so have never really been able to develop the charisma I wanted to have, I always wa...

Re: BARRY LONG

i find it confusing sometimes as many people on here say that self doesnt exist, or talk about going beyond self, but to me self isnt just some vague airy fairy notion or mind image about who we think we are, its the thing in me that thinks its seperate, and can work it out, the part of me that arg...

Re: BARRY LONG

Enigma you need to clarify your realisation. So as I can tell it is not just an intellectual statement. So to make it clear Enigma you have said it is all just "Life Lifeing" and in another place you call it all just "God Godding". So to say that, that implies, you are "That" realised every moment o...
