Re: The Ego Is My Friend

I have had a few out of body experiences that spontaneously occurred as my body was falling asleep. It happened when I entered the hypnagogic state between sleeping and waking and my body was paralyzed. After this happened a few times, I sometimes began floating out of my body. It was scary at first...

Re: Simply Being

As we go about our day we are either attending to actuality or attending to a narrative. Have a look. Every now and then (now and now) just stop and check to see what is being attended to. Nine times out of ten it'll be a narrative, a conversation in the head, a memory or plan*. And this is the sou...

Re: The Ego Is My Friend

Lets begin here, sit in a warm lounge chair perfectly comfortable, no environmental effects to cause discomfort. Sit perfectly still, perfectly comfortable. How long until some pressure in your bum starts to bother you, or maybe in your foot, or your leg begins to fall asleep and the cold tingles b...

Re: The Ego Is My Friend

I reckon the ego is similar to a veil or a fog of darkness that obscures the inner light. It has a relative existence and is dependent on the light, like the way a movie projection on a screen is dependent on the light within the movie projector. It reminds me of Plato's allegory of the cave. The sh...

Re: What Am I - What Are You?

http://oi60.tinypic.com/2cnbdjc.jpg How many levels of self could there be? Little self? Medium self? Meta-self? Language is written with symbols. The symbols represent utterances that combine to form words of the language and the words become a flow of ideas. Ideas come from an ultimate Source tha...

What are the blocks to enlightenment?

The brain seems to me to be more like a musical instrument or like a radio receiver that tunes into vibrations from the non physical aspect of our existence - which is like a non physical universal mind. Shouldn't we be able to communicate telepathically with other people directly instead of verbal ...

Re: The Ego Is My Friend

That is a very interesting article Enlightened2B. I agree that everyone is enlightened. Would the ego let me be its friend? I don't know :)

Re: past lives/reincarnation

I recall a dream I had, it felt like a memory of a past life. In the dream, I was a barefoot monk standing in front of a golden Buddha statue. At a later time in the dream, I was an old man, sitting on the steps of a monastery, wondering how to transcend the cycle of birth and death. Now I am an ave...

Re: Karma - Who Is The Judge

Since we are all parts of the Universal Oneness, then Karma and Law of Attraction seem to be saying that by giving to others in the universe, we are giving to ourselves and by taking away from others in the universe, we are taking away from ourselves. We are all one :D Theoretically speaking, using ...

Hello Friends

Hello, I am a mystic, not really religious per se but I seek peace, non violence, and cooperation with my fellow human brothers and sisters. God to me is universal oneness that I sometimes experience during meditation, contemplation, or even watching an insect crawling across my kitchen floor. There...
