Re: Our uniqueness

Which then begs the question.....could the one who is pointing to it, and realizing in the moment that there is a choice, possibly be a unique, but not separate "focus" of that Primordial Awareness that incarnates into the body.....forgets its true nature....identifies with the biological human org...

Re: breaking internet habit

Here's a good video (in line with Eckhart's teachings) that might be helpful for you: https://youtu.be/-moW9jvvMr4 Be curiously aware of your experience the next time you start to excessively use the internet. How does it physically feel?... How do your eyes feel after a long while of looking at a s...

Re: What would happen if you didn’t listen to your mind at all?

How did Eckhart survive on a bench for a year? I'm sure he used thoughts when they were necessary and helpful. And when they weren't necessary, they either didn't arise for him or he chose to let them go. :D "Enlightenment means rising above thought, not falling back to a level below thought; the l...

Re: Besides Ego, could this explain why we are?

I sometimes just get lost in either side no middle ground. Here's another Rupert video that may be more clear in the description of the back and forth dance that goes on between Observer and Observed (or "Screen" and "Movie" in Rupert's analogy) starting at 4:30: https://youtu.be/7o-r2rBvrXE?t=270

Re: Besides Ego, could this explain why we are?

And I hope you and your family, and everyone out there is doing well. Thank you. Same to you! :D I feel like one one side I can be emotional or in thoughts, considering this to be "myself" and on the other side I can be more self-aware seeing it all but not being any of it. I feel like being in the...

Re: Besides Ego, could this explain why we are?

I keep getting stuck in being emotionless when I believe emotion is important. I can't say anything about this because I've never been "stuck in being emotionless." Maybe someone else on this site has been there, though, and can help you out with that one? For me, when I discovered my true Self as ...

Re: Besides Ego, could this explain why we are?

Please give any guidance or opinion on my confusion with one of my forms if possible. In my opinion, I think you did a good job of pinning down and labeling these forms that arise in you. :) I also see these forms arising in myself from time to time. Forms 1 and 3 seem to be what I would call your/...

Re: Besides Ego, could this explain why we are?

Are 1 and 3 forms of ego? Is 2 a part of my consciousness? Are they all forms of ego? None of these 4 forms (or any other ones for that matter) are who you really are. You are the ever-present Awareness in which these forms (or any forms) temporarily appear. If you identify with any of these forms,...

Great thread! :D Re: making an effort vs. letting go The important questions are: Who is making the effort? and Who is letting go?
