Re: How to feel the fear and Do it anyway?

I think the first step is to really find out what your fear is and being able to look at it without being judgmental. This may provide you with some in site and understanding that will take the energy away from it. There are also fears that we are not aware of and block us in many way in finding wha...

Re: Staying present

Hi ashley, I completely understand what you are saying, but i am not talking about a problem as such, unless you want to address 'not staying present' a problem. From what i have learnt it is important to drift in and out of presence to understand what it's like to be within presence. You could say ...

Staying present

Hello, I am interested to know people's experience of staying present throughout the day. I have noticed that for me presence seems to come and go, It is very difficult to maintain throughout the day. Is there any way we can cultivate more constant presence? I know eckhart mentions inviting presence...

Re: Finding direction

I am very active, have been reading, do alot of sport and have recently finished a herbal medicine course. Being active hasn't provided me with any incites in direction as of yet! Although after realising ...

Re: negative thoughts

Hi Ashley - Thanks for the comments. I have actually just read through the linden method. The guidance he actually provides contradicts a lot of what eckhart says. For example he say the key to removing negative thoughts (caused by anxiety) is by 'divertion' i.e creating a distraction from your thou...

Re: negative thoughts

Hi tod - I will pay more attention next time to see if there is any subtle negativity there even before the thought arrives in the mind. Most the time they appear out of the blue and from there i give them space with no response. Is there also a paradox in me discussing this on the forum? I guess th...

negative thoughts

Hello, I have been practicing eckharts techniques now for a while, although recently i have been having negatives thoughts about life. when they arise i don't react or judge them and they do fade away but still return in regular intervals, when not 100% present it is easy to try and judge them in a ...

Re: afraid of loosing the ego?

Great comments, thanks for advice. It make sense now - You can't lose 'your self' when you have found yourself. Also i think it was a combination of reading too far into it. Like you said i need to resume what happens in my daily life - as this ideology is ironically taking me away from it! I think ...

Re: afraid of loosing the ego?

Thanks for your words, I guess it's all part of the process. One of the intelligent threads that the ego uses to keep the attachment!
