A quick browse through the subjects of the last few months of postings will tell the story, show the range of dishes on the smorgasbord table. :-)

I'm living my life too. If you don't have time to analyse, that's fine.

Which can be a deadening, thing that we instinctively do, the part we are unconsciously automatically formulating, "spiritual" ideas
Some people refer to this as spiritualizing the ego--and yes, I agree, this can be an obstacle. Which is why I have tried to stick to techniques of inner observation and strived not to reach for concepts outside of my experience.

I was wondering because, I see the past - this negativity, dark, thing in the background watching, and it made me really think - maybe the pain-body is Actually an entity?

Barry Long said to get rid of it , we starve it, it requires a diligence

But now there is this sinister quality - a demonic quality frankly, it's a constant battle - and I think my pain-body is quite big comparatively
But isn't the deification, labeling and actualizing of the pain-body as a demonic entity--isn't that the same as conceptualizing? The very thing you are warning against?

The pain-body - this inner work

I'm observing it
That's a good thing to do.

I'm enormously grateful to ET. He got me started many years ago. With clear and inscisive language, he pentetrated a thickened and stubborn intellect.

But once I understood the PON, I moved away from ET. Whereas ET is very useful and clear, ET's awakening was accidental and spontaneous. I wanted to find people who had to, like me, actually work on their awakening.

The enemy is your own invention. Nothing wrong in that, just a point of clarity. It brings a certain experience. And it's alright if you don't sense presence in my words. It matters more that you find clarity in your own presence.

I wish everyone the best, including you. We are all siblings of life with different experiences and unique perspectives. This forum is here to share what we perceive in order to help each other. Use it as you will. It's your choice.
