Re: Mushrooms/DMT/Ayahuasca/Psychedelic

Practicing presence works well on ayahuasca but is way more difficult. Ayahuasca is good in the way it can bring unconscious blockages and fears to the surface which you can then dissolve with presence. Aya is very mysterious, it provides you with different ways to release these blockages like thro...

Re: Is it God?

So how does Jesus figure into this? Jesus(the son) is the teaching. The father the son and the Holy Ghost or in Buddhism the buddha, the dhamma, the sangha. God or Buddha is the awareness of awareness. Jesus or the dhamma is the teaching. That which aware of, the suffering(the pleasant and painful ...

Re: Mahasamadhi-intentionally dying by leaving the body

I here what you're saying but the end of the day...isn't all of that just a set of beliefs as well? There is being present and then there's all these beliefs that there are numerous stages and that you may or may not be reborn, etc. What does any of that have to do with just being happy in the mome...

Re: Mahasamadhi-intentionally dying by leaving the body

Progress on the 8-fold noble path can only occur with mind and body. Observing this interaction of how mind creates body and body affects mind and doing so at deeper and deeper levels with balance is the journey. In Buddha’s teachings there are 4 stages of enlightenment, upon reaching the fruition s...

Re: What does "thought" mean exactly when Tolle says it's Eg

Yes, interest is wanting to know more. The trouble is you cant know death, just as you can't know happy. You can simply be happy. You want to know life, study life understand life, rather than be life. What can we possibly know about life that will reduce ego? What don't you understand about being h...

Re: What does "thought" mean exactly when Tolle says it's Eg

Interest is wanting, wanting to know about death is akin to heading in the opposite direction. Rather than merely experiencing death from one moment to the next without this wanting. As Tolle has done this, "he" has experienced death. But you cannot know or understand this, but simply be this aware ...

Being/experiencing death does not require additional thought added to.

Re: NDE-"We are here to experience fun and excitement"

Are you happy e2b, if not that's,where practice can be of benefit. You seem to have some twisted ideas of what a spiritual practice is about. It's not a masochistic torture of denial.

Re: Gratitude and a question

The root cause is that when this anxious sensation arisesyou are reacting towards it with desire. A desire for it to stay or a desire for it to leave.

I am taught that being aware and equanimous are the to wings that move you along the path to end suffering.

Re: What does "thought" mean exactly when Tolle says it's Eg

Understand that birth(mental formations) are occurring trillions of times in the wink of an eye. It is because of this pace that we cannot see this clearly and we see ourselves as unchanging permanent structures. When Tolle was asked what happens after the body dies he replied "I don't give it any t...
