Re: Dealing with nerves

What does your thoughts say that you are getting nervous about? Pick an actual example. Then compare these thoughts to the feeling of tension in the body. Are they related? Does the feeling actually say what the thoughts say or does thought make the connection between the feeling and the thoughts. T...

Re: Non-duality and Love

yes "In peace and happiness we know our self as utterly independent of all appearances of the body, mind and world - that is our innate freedom. In love we know ourselves as intimately one with all such appearances." Rupert Spira I would say that when there is love for the roots of our flaws (the es...

Re: How long did it take for you though..?

To find a message/teaching that rings very true is a big enjoyment in life, at least it was for me. But real changes come in a more invisible form, at least to me, they just occur and only later we notice that something is different. Im not trying to be mysterious about it , just saying what I feel.

Hej på dig!

Det tog ganska lång tid. I took quite a while, but it depends a bit on what we consider this reply to imply.

Re: Unpeaceful animals

Why do you think you are not a seeker? After all you are thinking about oneness now. Few people, if any, lack interest in what they believe will bring them happiness. They might not call it happiness but they are after something better or good. I agree that some animals, take a crocodile, is not th...

Re: Not sure what I should be doing

Our thinking will, as it is used to think in terms of learning, place (whatever it desires) as something it doesnt have but will eventually have. It is a reasonable way to react, but it is not what is required here. Instead look at what you have done to that which you already have. Investigate for e...

Re: How do you know life?

So, how do you know your child, your mother, your sister, your neighbour? You see them, if you hug you feel them, you hear them, the smell, taste, you think about them. They know you in the same way. What is it that knows in these different ways?

Re: How do you know life?

This reminds me of something Anadi said. He said that we do not know "how to be". We don't know who we are, what we are, what to do - anything. "how to be" ... because the possibility of crystallising your existence is only a possibility for a human being ... most humans just live and die like dust...

Re: How do you know life?

i'm new to the forums, but i'll sheer my intellectual understanding. Sorry for the ranting and wall of text, i hope my information helps people. To me, my life is three fold. My human life, my ego and consciousness. My human life is this animal that loves to have sex, and feed and drink. It's basic...

Re: How do you know life?

I don't know about Castanedas shields unfortunately. But what can happen is that we set up a useful idea of for instance time, so thought can keep track of lots of things, from small to bigger events. But with this ability thought will measure the time of less beneficial things also, like how long d...

I think there is such a thing as the right pace. To be both eager and wise. If you faint youre going too fast.

How do you know life?

Hi,

How do you know this life? Is it a gradual affair, that you come to know it more and more? In your own words, how do you know yourself, another, the world? How do you know anything and what ways are there to know this?

If you'd like to discuss it.
