Ego replaying movies, music, conversations...

I noticed a peculiar thing. For example, I see a good movie, listen to some music I enjoy, or have a pleasant or interesting conversation. Afterwards, when no "interesting" stuff is happening anymore, my mind keeps replaying the music, or some scenes from movies, or conversations, and it goes, on an...

Re: One step forward, two steps back?

Hi, J! It seems you had a breakthrough, and now, around a curve in the road, the next obstacle comes in your way. Your insights from yesterday are still valid today, but you were too anxious to remember and practice them. On days like these, maybe the best course of action would be to just make your...

Re: In need of a little help right now...

Hey you two! :) I appreciate your "virtual" company, it's like you've really been there for me. I had a breakthrough a little after I wrote my last post. It's been so eye-opening that I needed this time to simply process it all. I got an idea by watching this video by Tony Robbins where he "cures" R...

Re: Does it ever feel forced to you?

You think you're unconscious most of the time and you're trying to get to consciousness because you believe it's some "future" state of peace, bliss, of feeling nice, but I tried to show by dissecting the post above, that we actually seem to move back and forth between consciousness and unconsciousn...

Re: Bachelor Party Anxiety!!

But it has gotten to the point where my egoic toughts thinking about this bachelor party produce so much anxiety and so much fear and so much doubt (not about our relationshuip but about myself) that I am finding that I cannot get excited for the planning of the wedding, because with the planning o...

Re: Movies Concerning Awakening

Two recently seen movies: Carnage http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1692486/ Two kids argue and one whacks the other in the teeth with a stick. Afterwards, four egoic entities inhabiting their parent's bodies meet in an appartment to "settle" the affair. There ensues a "carnage" of tragi-comical proportio...

Re: Does it ever feel forced to you?

Hey, sorry ( :mrgreen: ) for writing even more but I kind of have some inspiration! At the moment, I seem to be experiencing a pattern where I go somewhat deeply into presence/Being, then I try to recreate that experience with mixed results. Then I reach a point of frustration This is a flash of awa...

Re: Does it ever feel forced to you?

Resting in awareness... attainable but doesn't happen over night. True? A lot of things you are giving voice to in the threads you have created are very familiar to me, they must be a normal part of this process, at least I hope they are. Mind deals in certainty, it hates not knowing, I regularly f...

Re: In need of a little help right now...

Hi smiileyjen101, thanks for your replies, having this conversation here made something really stir up inside of me, I can feel it all the time, and I feel like I have to "get it out" to be able to make some sense of it. And I think I'm better with logic and reason than with processing feelings so p...

Re: Emotions: good & bad

Good evening all, I asked my self about a context of this part of "the power of now" Emotions, on the other hand, being part of the dualistic mind, are subject to the law of opposites. This simply means that you cannot have good without bad. how can we see the good in the bad ? maybe by asking our ...

Re: Does it ever feel forced to you?

the ego isn't simply going to stop fighting for it's survival simply because I want it to. Just a hint: Does thinking this feel a bit "artificial" to you? See if you're actually witnessing the ego survival fight, or if you're just trying to construct stories about what you believe the ego will do o...

Re: In need of a little help right now...

Okay... I waited a little until things "sank in" to make my response. you maybe have to go through it in order to understand it. Yes, acceptance, let it be as it is, no judgment, and just observe it. 1. When we are 'trying' to do something the energy is on 'trying' to achieve that which we don't bel...

In need of a little help right now...

As some who've read my posts might know, I finally became able to dis-identify from some deeply conditioned thoughts of mine just a few days ago. From the voice of the "inner critic", "superego", the tormentor in the head... from the "shoulds", "musts" and "have to's". I was trying to work on some o...

Re: Is ignoring thoughts actually resisting them?

ahhhh! So, now my question is: if the movie simply won't end, can I just leave the theatre and go do something else? Do I have to watch it until it finally ends (which often feels like NEVER). If I get bored or annoyed with the movie in midstream, is it okay to turn the damn movie off and go watch ...
