Re: Desire/Expansion/Joy/Creativity

Whether it is seen as a beautiful creation in alignment with joy or not it must be seen as impermanent by nature, it arises to pass away, no aelf, no control, just masses of sub atomic particles arising and passing very quickly. Any identification with this as me is suffering. This is where a spirit...

Re: Desire/Expansion/Joy/Creativity

A spiritual practice does not have to come from desire(it could I am only speaking from my experience)it comes from a calling it is a waking up it just comes about. Understand I am not suggesting I am free from desires, there is still much time spent in identification. But this can not change the la...

Re: Desire/Expansion/Joy/Creativity

"Fear and desire are the two movements of the unconscious state" ET You cannot desire and be present. A spiritual practice is just that a practice of expanding awareness, when observing breath or sensation there is for those precious moments no desire. This has absolutely nothing to do with any reli...

Re: Desire/Expansion/Joy/Creativity

If you want to believe that presence is desire, you are free to do so.

Re: Scared of presence

This is where a teacher can help to guide you. Presence is not about attaining a tingly state it is awareness of whatever presents itself from moment to moment. Tingles are suffering as well as the sensation of fear. This liking of certain sensation and disliking of other sensation is the old habit ...

Re: Desire/Expansion/Joy/Creativity

This has nothing to do with belief, it is the truth, you just have to look to see this. This is exactly what a spiritual practice is all about. Going deeper and deeper into presence is not a desire, neither is refining the egoic tendencies.

Re: Desire/Expansion/Joy/Creativity

Desire is a deep wanting for something. Dictionary definition. In Pali it is known as tanha, which means thirst or craving. I can't communicate with you if you have your own meanings for words. What is our purpose of life? Butterfly pancakes gorilla sandwich, that should be clear. Any desire is the ...

Re: Desire/Expansion/Joy/Creativity

To answer your questions e2b you must know yourself at deeper and deeper levels. How does it feel a mind full of cravings(desires) vs a mind with much less. Desire agitates the pond, how are we to ever be peaceful when the mind we carry is full of desire for the next thing?

Re: Eternal Awareness?

According to Einsteins theory of special relativity. As we approach the speed of light our mass would grow exponentially. Mind must loosen it's grip on form as it approaches light speed. Letting go of form one can enter the formless realms, letting go of these formless realms one can transcend mind ...

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

I don't mean fear in a fright - evaluation of a (real, actual, in this moment) situation, I mean fear of what if, rather than what is. Every thought produces a corresponding sensation linked to a particular vibration. A mental formation or "energetic entity" as eckhart teaches. Now I am taught that...

Re: Realisation and the mind

Seeing through the ego is what I mean by grinding the ego to dust(or looking at refined ego) this is the path to freedom for everyone it is universal. Strong egoic tendencies that lead to great suffering are clearly seen and merely observed this breaks the grip we previously had on them and with thi...

When Dzogchen teachers talk about sudden enlightenment, they usually mean: within one lifetime. Which is not all that "sudden" ... but heckuva lot suddener than 1,000,000 lifetimes!
How fast must the mind travel to view a single lifetime? Faster than the speed of light.

Re: Realisation and the mind

It's not a misunderstanding - it's an acknowledgement of the different schools of Buddhist thought. Yes, some forms of early Buddhism do talk about a lifetime's (or more) work - these are known as the gradual path approach. Later forms (post Nagarjuna) emphasise sudden awakening. As I acknowledge a...

Re: Realisation and the mind

Hello RT, I was doing some light reading on Vedanta terms. It seem some of the words are the same but carry different meanings. Dharma for example is teachings of Buddha but in Hinduism it seems more in line with morality. It sounds like your earlier practitioners were doing concentration exercises ...

Re: Realisation and the mind

There is no goal, but only a journey and yet there is no journey, but only experience. And you will know when you are not in alignment or when there is still massive resistance in your life that is showing up in order to be integrated. It happens to all of us. This is where we differ in opinions, a...
