Re: Problem with dating

Jaya, if you've read Power of Now and A New Earth, you will have a pretty good understanding both of what's going on inside of you, and what 'might' be going on inside of others. Hopefully you will have learned the folly of letting ego rule your life, noticing and being gentle and loving when ego i...

Yup, listening to the audio version.

Any other books that you have read on the subject that can help?

She said that she thinks that she knows me more than i know her.

Thanks for all the advice. It was reassuring. Are there also books that you can recommend on this?

Re: Problem with dating

I have realized that when u r centered and in ur body, the gal starts reacting to me. I have also realized that I have not been comfortable with myself in some dates because my life situations is not 'good' enough in comparison to hers. (She experiencing the world, traveling, good social life, etc) ...

Re: Problem with dating

Hi, I have realized that all of the dates I have been on have not been fruitful. The maximum number of dates that I go with a particular gal has been 2. It's a bit frustrating. I have been doing some reflection and this is what I have realized. I have made the girls that I have gone out with a mean...

Re: Problem with dating

Nice noticing on the means to an end Jaya... it would feel a bit awkward. 'Dating' merely means setting aside some time to BE with someone, usually in a shared activity/pursuit. What do you enjoy doing? What activity brings you the most joy? What brings out the authentic 'you'? Do that and 'share' ...

Re: Why does time pass so fast when we are older?

Hmm.. How would one remove all his accumulated memories then? Tolle says not to dig up the past. Instead, we should deal with it as it manifests in the present Remember ... memories buried alive never die, they will show up. So the chances of them showing up in the present are most likely to occur....

Re: Why does time pass so fast when we are older?

The reason is very simple; when you are young a single day is a total adventure into the unknown. When you are old you have accumulated so much in your mind that you can't experience things directly - you can't see the sun 'as it is' because your mind has thousands of 'recordings' of the sun, and p...

Why does time pass so fast when we are older?

Hi guys,

I recently stumbled across a book which was about time.Basically, it asked the question , " Why does time pass faster when we age"? So, it got me thinking and I would like to ask your views on the subject.

Is it because we are not present enough?

Re: Pain Body Specifics

If that's what happens that's what happens. There is no 'supposed to'. It just is. Attention in depth and resonance (focus) adds energy to a thought or emotion and so it grows by that energy. It's why I asked - do you mean notice them and let them go, or do you mean focus on them? These are two dif...

Re: Pain Body Specifics

I set aside 20 mins daily for inner body awareness. Throughout the day, I try to be present to negative/compulsive thought patterns. Thats about it. Are there any other things you can recommend to do? Heck yes :D Meet every moment anew from the moment you open your eyes from sleep, in as many momen...

Re: Pain Body Specifics

Hi J, laughing, lovingly, kindly, on realising previously 'programmed' response in fear may be a nervous reaction, like when you get a fright from a loud noise or a practical joke and then you 'get it', it's not threatening. Sometimes the built up energy inside comes out as laughter / relief rather...

Re: Im not sure whether i should heal this past I had.

Looking for a solution to the problem. There was a solution, but I didnt have the balls to do it. I could not take it. Over the course of the next two years, the thing i feared never happened. I had been carrying a pain body for 2 years and it is still residing in my body. Hi Jayakanth, What specif...
