Re: NDEs and Vedanta

What does the sense of your true self feel like to you? How would you describe it? Ever present and undeniable stillness, silence and peace no matter what the outer circumstances are. Even during times of frustration or even anger those remain, and when they do arise there is the simultaneous notic...

Re: A Share

Jiddu Krishnamurti was the first guy I investigated after learning to meditate in 1973. I couldn't grasp his teaching until I came across Eckhart Tolle in 2000. Tolle opened the door for understanding others like OSHO (known back then as Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh) and Ramana Maharshi, guys who I sensed...

Re: To be present or to be absorbed?

what can I say about being absorbed while watching a film or TV or a football match? I don't think we are very present in these cases...


One can witness them and remain thought free. It’s second nature to me. Witnessing TV and movies is training ground for witnessing everyday events.

Re: To be present or to be absorbed?

Yes,I would say that to be totally absorbed in whatever you are doing to the exclusion of everything else is a kind of presence. There are approaches to presence via concentration. This sort of approach, however, can be quite tiring because the mind must remain one pointed and that can take a lot of...

Dean Sluyter

I just came across this guy today. He has a solid grasp on an approach to meditation this fits perfectly with Adyashanti's 'true meditation' that he calls 'natural meditation'. He'll guide you into some simple observations that can lead to meditation that can in turn lead to realization. From what I...

Re: Can a fetus absorb pain body energy ?

Yes, there is. Now that I have seen glimpses of it, I know that it is real (referring to that "something more" you speak of). And it is truly amazing - still, peaceful, beautiful. But, here are the "issues" with it: - It is transient, fleeting, elusive, and much too short-lived ... so when I do get...

Re: Can a fetus absorb pain body energy ?

It's not an easy read for a couple of reasons. Number 1, the content is unfamiliar for most people; there are concepts presented that challenge one's cherished beliefs that a lot of people will resist and discount out of hand. Secondly, the format is rather odd with how the concepts are physically p...

Re: Can a fetus absorb pain body energy ?

There are those who believe we 'contract' for our present circumstances on the physical plane in order to serve a specific purpose which remains hidden to us once we incarnate on Earth, a purpose which those around us have also agreed to be part of and a purpose whose ultimate goal is for your benef...

Re: 'Do nothing' meditation

That which arises even in the mind as uncomfortable thoughts or emotions are undeniably present, so being an open avenue for those expressions will allow the energy behind them to expend their energy in due time. Feelings and moods are more subtle than the thoughts attached to them, and tend to ling...

Re: 'Do nothing' meditation

I've played with that same sort of meditation, and I can say it's quite enjoyable. No effort to 'steer' the direction of meditation in any way - whatever arises is included - this sort of inclusive meditation can be quite refreshing. On the other hand, becoming fixated on having things 'your' way in...

He's an avid bird watcher, and has visited well over 100 countries to do just that. He's authored many professional papers on birds and other ...
