Re: My verdict on this whole thing

Ok, I can't help it. Sorry. Just a few pennies. 1 - Pay attention to the Glycemic Index (GI) of the Carbs you eat, which ranges from 0 (Good) to 100 (Bad). Not all Carbs are equal. Many GI tables are available online. Examples: Low GI: Broccoli, Lettuce, Red Peppers. High GI - White/wheat flour prod...

Re: My verdict on this whole thing

That presence, peace stillness, mindfulness should not be primary pursuits as they are secondary side effects to the deep realizations of who we are. Presence happens after a cathartic realization, as it did for ET. It's a by product of resolving, deeply seeing and feeling who you are. I believe th...

Re: My verdict on this whole thing

Onceler said- Same for me dijmart. You put it well Thanks! Just when I thought we were seeing things differently, guess not. I've had various addictions/habits over the years. A month and a half ago I quit nicotine (I vaped for the past 5 yrs, since stopping smoking). The withdrawl process (no patc...

Re: My verdict on this whole thing

I'm not trying to start an argument as I respect everyone's path, nor do I feel a need to defend my current state (dijmart stated it better than I could have) I just wanted to put something out there for those reading this who feel like meditation and presence just doesnt 'work'. It can be painful ...

Re: Should I take care of my body?

This is an important question to ponder, and one that, strangely, has not been discussed much here before, to my knowledge. Yes, you're right - ultimately, in the big picture, it makes no difference, whether or not your body is healthy or how long you live. My short answer is - do whatever feels nat...

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 ) Hey Rob, thanks for the feedback ! Yes, that project remains unfinished. But, ...

Re: My verdict on this whole thing

I do have one tiny comment to elaborate on my point about "time does matter". I mentioned age and waiting, but forgot to mention something far more important. When I fall in love with a beautiful woman, I want to build lasting memories with her. I want to travel the world with her, embarrass myself ...

Re: My verdict on this whole thing

Mystic, I don't know that the mind > the brain. Perhaps you have been able to access a deeper level of consciousness. Now, let's be clear - when I say "brain", I don't just mean "thought". Of course, I include thoughtless awareness in that. The brain enables all of it ... all perception. I cannot co...

Some music I made a while ago

I've been dabbling with electronic music creation (music being the first love of my life and electronica being my fav genre) since my college days. Over the years, I taught myself some music theory and sound synthesis / DSP or digital signal processing (which, given my proclivity for math/science, I...

Re: My verdict on this whole thing

The beauty of it is that I don't have to agree with everything ET (or anyone else) says, for his teachings to benefit me. In fact, I have picked up amazing little nuggets of wisdom from so many people I've come across - things I'll never forget. Even if you think someone is a loon, they might say o...

Re: My verdict on this whole thing

I also don't think presence dissolves any negative thing. It can make things worse, at least it did for me. Really? Uh? This isn't my experience at all. My capacity for suffering is huge, potentially, without bringing "presence" into my daily life. Otherwise the mind is just on an endless hamster w...

Re: My verdict on this whole thing

I'd like to hear the ET stuff that works. Ah, that's funny :) I see now, upon rereading my post, that I made it sound like I disagree with everything ET says. 1 - Identity : The most important thing I agree with ET about is what he says about one's identity ... we get lost in our conceptual identit...
