Re: Ouch!

Wanted to add a couple of things that just occurred to me. - Lumbar support : Whenever you sit, make sure your lumbar region is supported. This will help maintain your neutral spine position and mitigate soreness and pain. This includes your driver's seat when you drive, and any chairs/couches etc. ...

Re: Are Labels Problematic?

Nothing wrong, whatsoever, with labels or identities as long as you don't lose sight of the big picture. In my experience, labels and identities can send you down the wrong path in life if you believe too much or too strongly in them with the exclusion of everything else. If you consider yourself a ...

Wayfarer (by the author of this post) One tempestuous night, driven perforce the wayfarer, intrepid, sets upon his course Leaving behind many treasures unseen from all Earthly lusts, he hath weaned Sparing thought for neither yester nor morrow his heart leaveth room for neither angst nor sorrow At o...

Re: Ouch!

Hey dude, I know how you feel. I've had a herniated disk (L4/L5) since 2011. Why do you think I call myself "painBody" ? :lol: Because I have a rubbery thing between my vertebrae, that keeps pinching a nerve and producing a lot of chronic pain in my body :D Have you noticed that staying in the same ...

Re: My verdict on this whole thing

Another thing that Eckhart was absolutely right about ...

That 750 ml bottle is definitely conducive to clarity.

No doubt about that. It stops the thinking mind. That is why it is so popular.

Re: My verdict on this whole thing

A large part of my perceived wisdom has derived from understanding the way it all works, and that definitely involved the brain, not "thoughtless awareness". What is thoughtless awareness? Stillness is silent knowing. The brain merely articulates what it has learned externally through audio and vis...

Re: My verdict on this whole thing

Some additional thoughts ... Am I much wiser now than pre-Eckharthood ? Yes. Is it because I've spent the last few years sitting under a tree, rubbing my belly, laughing like the fat Buddha, entirely in presence and entirely thoughtless ? No, not at all. A large part of my perceived wisdom has deriv...

Yeah, cell phones and Farcebook/Shitter have highlighted a whole new order of magnitude of human stupidity.

Re: A very close call.

Lol, I don't know about the snorting, since I haven't done that. I'll take your word for it. :) The lady in the caravan (once she came to a stop) looked like she was in shock. She just sat there, in the wrong lane! The traffic on the other side of the road was going around her.... I took off. I hav...

Re: A very close call.

I feel pretty lucky right now. On my way home from work I was almost to a full stop and I heard terrible screaching tires behind me. Before I knew it, a caravan came flying from behind me, to the left side of me and into oncoming traffic, trying to avoid slamming into my car. Time stood absolutely ...

Re: Some music I made a while ago

Hi PB. Good work. I hear shades of the Orb, Little Fluffy Clouds. My immediate thought is that it could have been longer - perhaps with a bit of a breakdown before going back into the main theme. (Like I would know. :D ) Rob, I listened to The Orb yesterday (for the first time), and you're right ! ...

Re: Some music I made a while ago

I don't know anything about making music per say, but I listened to it and liked it! The visual effects were cool too. So you did this with a computer program? Thanks ! Glad you liked it. Yup, I did it with a computer program, and used a physical synthesizer (which looks like a musical keyboard, wi...

Re: My verdict on this whole thing

Shut up, PB, I'm blushing! In reality, perhaps the conciseness is mine but the ideas aren't. I've borrowed heavily from many others, mostly Sherman, but others too. The idea that presence is secondary to another, more fundamental realization is definitely not mine, but it rings so true with my expe...

Re: Storm Coming

Good luck, Sir.

Look on the bright side - a great chance to go "off the grid" for a while. Machines can be a pain in the ass, as I'm sure you know.

Are you stocked up on food/water/supplies ? Have they projected its path on land yet ? Is your home in a potential evac zone ?
