Re: difficult situation

Chippy, read Merlin's response above. That sits well with me. Aside from that, I don't think there IS an answer. As long as you can allow yourself to understand that the physical world is an illusion, why not have fun with it as Merlin says?

Re: Pertaining to the "other"

Great response. I actually posted this literally right before it all clicked for me. My classification is essentially the same. We are all awareness. Therefore we are all one. The one center of conscious awareness breaks off into multiple streams of awareness and utilizes physical bodies as the vehi...

Re: difficult situation

its the delight in playing with the form, when you are complete in yourself and have lost all needs. You can then have it all. and die into the joy of this illusion we call life, without fears
What a wonderful quote.

Re: difficult situation

One more thing I'd like to add, is there essentially any difference between the love I have for this computer desk chair I am sitting in compared to perhaps the love for another body? If there is a difference experienced by another being, I'd love to hear WHY there is a difference in their interpret...

Re: difficult situation

Thanks Merlin. You make some great points and I wholeheartedly agree that our hormones definitely drive our ambition towards finding a "partner". I'm 31 years old and I still have a very strong urges. Therefore, if we were going to embark on relationships merely for the sexual part, it would make mo...

Re: difficult situation

Thanks so much for the wonderful responses. I think it's the fact that when everything starts to make sense of "who or what I am", it's almost as if life takes care of itself. I have been pondering though the concept of relationships within merely "formed bodies and minds". Emotions are no doubt rea...

Re: difficult situation

Thanks Aloha for the response. One of the reasons I ask this is because I've been reading so many of the threads on this site and there's such incredible conversation about non-duality and I'm just starting to get the hang of this stuff and I find it fascinating. Perhaps this thread was the wrong pl...

Re: difficult situation

I wanted to get others takes on this. I've dated so many different types of people in my life and largely those I have very little compatibility with and compatibility simply does not exist with those who have completely different values and long term goals as myself. If you don't want kids or marri...

Re: thoughts

Thanks Typist. Could not agree more about focusing on the actual date rather than yourself and by date I mean the actual time spent with the other person. That's definitely something I've done in the past and has caused me much "suffering" and I'm learning. I just don't feel that the date should rev...

Re: difficult situation

Typist, I completely agree with you. All I really see out of a potential situation with someone I have interest in, is to start off as friends and merely take it from there. I tried that and she was not very reciprocative. However, she was literally on the verge of getting back together with her ex ...

Re: difficult situation

I appreciate your post Jen. However, I'm not really sure what direction your post was going here. Please don't take that the wrong way. I'll try to explain the situation again below. "She did well to notice what you failed to notice in that we both have immense similarities". That was essentially pa...

Re: thoughts

Andy, I'm starting to incorporate meditating in my daily practice. After reading the book "Taming the Tiger" a few years back by Akong Rinpoche , it essentially points to the notion that our minds need to be tamed and the way to do so is via meditation. I don't know if you would agree with this or n...

Re: difficult situation

Thanks for the response Matt. Yeah, this situation is over now. I ended things with her about a month ago. I left things open ended. I felt a strong connection with this person, but it was not meant to be. She was not over her ex boyfriend and I couldn't get involved in a situation where that was ta...

Re: thoughts

Thanks for the advice Typist. I agree with what you have said. You absolutely cannot "worry" so to speak about whether you are evolving or not in an awakening presence. I think a lot of us initially over think things because we are so mind associated....myself included after almost 32 years. Everyth...

Re: thoughts

Andy, This is a wonderful post. I had to read it a couple of times in order to digest it fully. You bring up two of the states of "witnessing" and "Pure awareness". After my experience Tuesday afternoon, it went away the next morning and now I am only getting glimpses of it on and off. Is this commo...
