Re: Individual self knowledge

If the intent to learn about the self and the means are not there then you won't develop self knowledge. Age is not important. So what promotes the intent to learn, why do some go all the way and others get distracted by their self, the allure of the illusion? And worldly intelligence as in IQ is b...

Re: I don't think Eckhart has fully awakened

It seams rather fear and avoidance based....... But to suppress emotions that may have something to teach us about life's interactions seems more of an inhibitor. WW One can't live without emotions even if one had that aim. Suppressing emotion is not living without it, it is just ignoring it. The r...

Re: Individual self knowledge

Thank you for that Soren " whereas Self-knowledge persists as the guiding light in the unconscious behind the existential scene ." This is what I am refering to and it is relevant as part of my quest to determine what I am beyond the personal aspect. There must be this inherent wisdom accruing in th...

Re: I don't think Eckhart has fully awakened

What about the feeling of hunger? Feeling tired? Or are you talking about emotions? So the aim is to be emotionless? Doesn't sound right to me. It is not an aim as I see it, it is just what happens. Hunger and tiredness are sensations. Feelings in this article is the same as emotions. I think this ...

Re: I don't think Eckhart has fully awakened

Barry Long, the deceased tantric master, stated that he lived without feelings. By feelings he meant emotions. "All feelings are false and deceptive. And in the spiritual process the area of any person's life where they still have feelings is where the next stage of their unenlightenment will be add...

Individual self knowledge

How does one account for the variety of, could we say intelligence , amongst the population? If there is no such thing as individual self knowledge that accrues from life experience-through death-and into life experience on and on until it is sufficiently alight to realise the other invisible realit...

Re: Putting attention onto the awareness

is it common for someone as young as me to be seeking truth in their late teens? I'm 21, I brought Tolle's book nearly 3 years ago, so yes. :) I am astounded Ananda, you have such insight into your reality. In a body of 21 years experience that is remarkable. You obviously didn't need to experience...

Re: Advaita

1. Why? Why do humans (perhaps animals or other organisms too) posess (initially) a false reality? What is the purpose of that? Wayne Liquorman told (I don't know if this is a general Advaita teaching) that children near the age of 2,5 start to identify themself with FSA (False Sense of Authorship)...

Re: Wanting pain

Do you really want pain, if so you will get it, life gives us what we acknowledge. The anxiety is the problem in this case isn't it. Your anxiety could well drive her away. The real light in man and woman's relationship is love. Put aside your anxiety, and stay with the love. Yes anxiety is certain...

Re: UNCONSCIOUSNES IN OTHERS

I recognise this pattern. It can happen when I feel especially good and then someone plays up not reflecting my good state and it bothers me. I never picked why it was happening at the time but I got used to it by dying to my need to be recognised in some way. I suppose I was projecting the good som...

Re: THERE IS SO MUCH TO SIFT THROUGH

sifting, sifting, sifting, always following the light. I grow tired all of the sifting. How much longer must I sift through all of these pieces? I hunger for play, and lightness, and exploration. Well at least you know what is coming, play lightness and fun! This comes about when the problematic pa...

Re: Isn't thinking natural?

Thanks, I find this interesting. Are you saying I must simply focus on the various sensations of the body and let that lead to a still finer sensation eventually? What sort of sensations must I focus on first? Which place is usually done - the belly or heart or other places? The extremities are the...

Re: Isn't thinking natural?

One thing, though, about boredom. What I mean is, mind is normally occupied with something. So when that occupation ceases, there's boredom. I mean it in this context; I am not talking about agitation or restlessness. I am talking about the state of 'not doing anything', which is quite a baffling s...
