Re: I don't have this intuition that people talk about

Spectrum wrote Thanks for the suggestion. But does't that count as "clinging", which is universally reviled as bad by spiritual dudes? A while ago I realised fear can take any positive and loving contribution and twist it into a mirrored concept that turns it into the opposite of what was intended. ...

Re: Painbody

Tod - just to clarify the comment at the bottom of my first post was based on this line in your post. This appears to assume that something goes into the feeling. What could this be other than a thought… It is only idea/belief/assumption that there is something that can go into something, and if thi...

Re: Regression or pure energy release

There is this little bug, and I heard that if you place it on a sheet of white paper and then draw a line around it, it thinks it is inside the circle and that line is telling it there is no way out, so it goes around and around inside that penciled in circle--- I really like that quote - to me the...

Re: Regression or pure energy release

Now lately, in the last months and weeks, I've been having a slightly different experience. I'll lie down and relax and allow myself to listen to the feeling, just like I did in the regression, but what happens is that instead of seeing these visions of people, the emotion will just shoot straight ...

Re: I don't have this intuition that people talk about

Various sources told me that I needed to be happy from the inside before I could achieve external things. At this time that advice resonated with me, and it felt like the right thing to do. So, inspired by "Law of Attraction" teachings (such as Esther and Jerry Hicks) I spent about six months doing...

Re: Are we responsible for our lives?

Are you sure that's what Eckhart said? Awareness isn't about avoiding the painbody...as far as I can recall Eckhart tells us to face it head on, feel it and dive right into it and not avoid anything. It is the avoidance that makes the painbody persist. That is correct. The point I was making was th...

Re: Do quite a few of these apply to you?

When I saw this post yesterday I think I counted about 14 of the 18 strongly. At the time I also remember thinking - yes - but they are also essentially classic 'symptoms' of that childhood trauma - and yet - and yet.... For several months now my life has been releasing many things I have previously...

Re: Meditation and Judgement

My question is, do we need to judge certain thoughts and feelings as they enter the mind to function normally in everyday society? Is it possible to gain insight into our own awareness - the immaterial extended self within which the material world manifests itself - without being a moral nihilist? ...

Re: Are we responsible for our lives?

If we are not responsible for our lives who is? Just a general comment - I think Tolle has tended to paint Ego as something negative when it is not necessarily so. We can certainly be too egoic but I think the whole 'no ego' thing is going a little too far and is misleading. It is a natural part of ...

Re: Consciousness: Chicken or Egg ?

Quite, but why? (Obviously an unanswerable question). The answer is in your tag line The eye cannot see itself. The one created us in order that it may experience itself (with us). And what is that - Pure Love - and why are you not experiencing pure love right now (I assume on this :wink: ) because...

Re: Consciousness: Chicken or Egg ?

in a conversation between 2 people, there are the 2 individual consciousness, but there is also the Consciousness/Awareness. So there are 3 perspectives? I would agree with that - three But ultimately only one - the absolute being the observer of the experience of two who are within the relative. I...

Re: Is there no free will?

What is " not imagined?" This is a bit of a restatement from an earlier post but it is important to consider what defines 'not imagined' for imagined to exist. If you accept the definition of imagined is 'not fully real' or an idea only or at least some sort of abstraction - what is it abstract from...

Re: The Power of Past?

I really like Sandys last post about changing the future and the past based on the now. I often think of this type of concept as a radar sweep on an old fashioned radar screen. As we change and evolve we look again at the events in our lives and they carry different meaning. Every sweep things have ...

Re: Is there no free will?

In response to your question Enlighted2B I understand what you're pointing to in your post. However, if that's your experience which I quoted from you above, then how do you know that the world we see is an illusion? As in all things in relativity what is real is relative to the perspective of the o...
