Re: Do things get worse before they get better?

I am not awakened I'm on a journey seeking it. I have just noticed small improvements in myself. I still suffer just a little bit less now. I would love to have no fear when facing external hardship but it's hard especially with small children who's welfare I am also responsible for. My question is ...

Re: Jumping Around Different Practices

I've learned about many different practices during the past year, and I often wonder if the current practice I'm doing (I'm generally always doing some practice or other) is the best one to be doing for me at that moment. As a result, I bounce around practices a lot. These days, I have maybe three ...

Do things get worse before they get better?

For the first time in my life I have put all focus and effort into learning how to deny and beware of thought and live in the present (as best I can). It is the most important thing to me as I've found at this point in my life nothing else has worked. Since doing this and noticing small improvements...

Re: Boredom.

I think boredom is good. When I was in my late teens I had an extremely boring job I'd sit and stare out the window for hours (don't ask). I was basically in a situation where I was forced to be bored and couldn't escape it. In that boredom so many talents, organic creative endeavors and spiritual i...

Re: How to live without the want for a romantic relationship

If you are that desperate to be in a relationship, instead of feeling sorry for yourself, why don't you do something to achieve that desire? The universe isn't going to pity you and decide that you have suffered enough and present at your front doorstep the person of your dreams without you putting...

Re: How to live without the want for a romantic relationship

I am experiencing this now albeit probably to a larger degree then you are. I am single and have a strong desperate desire to be in a relationship and because I'm not in one I have this strong feeling of sadness, lonliness and desperateness. Thoughts about it consume my days and it's so bad I fill ...

Looking for a mindful meditation audio

Hi All, I am looking for a mindful meditation that is very helpful with becoming aware of thoughts so that I can watch them. I am very heavily consumed by my thoughts so much so it's difficult to detach from them. I currently use a meditation by Sam Harris which is decent and one by Tara Brach which...

Re: How come some unconcious people can be happy?

You don't know what they feel inside most of them probably aren't as happy as they look like on the outside to you. They also may be using a lot of things to mask and cover up their pain and suffering...so if they feel numb to it now when those things fall away they will feel it. As I've heard menti...

Re: Eckhart Tolle and the Trap of Acceptance

I was in a relationship that ended and all I wanted (and still do) is to be back with him. However, the ugly and painful breakup is one of the best things that has ever happened to me and I know it. The severe pain it caused me forced me to examine myself more then I ever have and has made me start ...

Re: A Question

Of course not, meditation by definition is the silence of thought ... stillness of mind ... a meditation where your mind would be rambling is just another daydream in which only little improvement can be found ... We can't control what thoughts or how many thoughts pop up in our head. All we can do...

Re: Judgment

I agree with the others that there is a difference between judgement and discernment. I'm beginning to notice that when I'm presented with a situation or person or even just look at something my head immediately fills up with thoughts about it. Thoughts about it that don't actually have any bearing ...
