recidivism of unconsciousness

Post by ranell » Thu Apr 30, 2015 8:40 pm

Hi,

I'm facing new wave of unconsciousness, but I really find no way to how to begin a new way toward better level of consciousness.

Now, I'm sad, feel rage and resentment toward many people. I just want to got rid all this negative energy, but I feel that's really hard, even I know that I've made it and it's not as hard as I think now.

I've just lost the way !

Any tips ?
:(

It's totally fine to feel sad and angry and lost. There doesn't have to be any reason for it. It doesn't matter WHY you feel this way. If you do, then you do. There is a great peace that comes when we cease trying to find an answer to why we feel as we do. In that peace we can let go in the acceptance of our present circumstance. In that acceptance, we become what we desire.

I'm with Zen on this. Rather than try to get back in the zone, relax ... and let everything be the zone.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily ...

Also agree with Jack and rach. That you are aware enough to recognize it is the first step towards moving beyond it. Be patient. Know it for what it is. Love and appreciate whenever you can. There's nothing wrong in life, only cause and effect. Be inclusive.

I'm new to Tolle's teachings, but I can already sense that without a constant vigilance of potential triggers and constant practice of experiencing the now that it would be very easy to return to my ego-driven false identity. I'm hoping not to end up in the place you are. I could see that easily happen if I let my pain body get away with acting out without my realization. I'm interested in how others maintain vigilance and practice.

Welcome to the forum Ninth.

First, it is important how you internally characterize the results of your efforts at gaining presence and growth. If you view that growth in terms of successes and failures, you will most certainly have failures which all too often lead to self-judgement which only serves to strengthen ego. This is not particularly helpful.

A better way is to see is as a kind of bank account. Every moment you spend in clear awareness adds to that account - you 'consciousness account' if you will. So as you take a few moments during your day - any time, and many times - you are adding to that account. Over time your 'balance sheet' will consistently grow in favor of clear conscious being over ego identification. So you can add to your account anytime you wish by taking a few deep breathes and resting in clear presence.

Just remember the ego has a long established account of its own built up over many years, so be patient and consistent. Your desired results will surely follow.
