  1. I heard this before from varies teachers but what does it actually mean? How do you distinguish between what "I" want and my ego wants? It's not always black and white, specially later in the process. The ego may say - but I really really want to reconnect with my ex-lover! It's an emotional want! Am I supposed to listen? Do you have any tips on how to align myself with the true radio wave?
  2. I watched the Bohemian Rhapsody last night. It's obvious that Freddie was in the flow/channeling on stage or whatever you want to call it. And then I "heard" the Iyrics of Innuendo: "You can be anything you want to be Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be Be free with your tempo, be free, be free Surrender your ego be free, be free to yourself" Lyrics One two three four Ooh ooh While the sun hangs in the sky and the desert has sand While the waves crash in the sea and meet the land While there's a wind and the stars and the rainbow Till the mountains crumble into the plain Oh yes, we'll keep on trying Tread that fine line Oh, we'll keep on trying Yeah Just passing our time Oh oh While we live according to race, colour or creed While we rule by blind madness and pure greed Our lives dictated by tradition, superstition, false religion Through the eons and on and on Oh, yes, we'll keep on trying, yeah We'll tread that fine line Oh oh we'll keep on trying Till the end of time Till the end of time Through the sorrow all through our splendor Don't take offence at my innuendo Duh duh duh duh duh duh duh Duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh duh You can be anything you want to be Just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be Be free with your tempo, be free, be free Surrender your ego be free, be free to yourself Oh oh, yeah If there's a God or any kind of justice under the sky If there's a point, if there's a reason to live or die Ha, if there's an answer to the questions we feel bound to ask Show yourself destroy our fears release your mask Oh yes, we'll keep on trying Hey, tread that fine line (Yeah) yeah We'll keep on smiling, yeah (Yeah) (yeah) (yeah) And whatever will be will be We'll just keep on trying We'll just keep on trying Till the end of time Till the end of time Till the end of time
  3. Your Default Mode Network is responsible for creating the sense of time, hence "deactivating key DMN nodes w/meditation or psychedelics creates the mystical experiences of "All is One" and "now, now, now".

  4. Sort of a good example of "all understanding is metaphoric". She is a former Catholic so gets familiar visions of paradise-like green fields, God-father figure welcoming her etc.
  5. I've been practicing it daily for the past six months, it's the craziest thing ever happened to "me". This week I had a pretty interesting shift with "the observer is the observed". Have been repeating it over and over again, such a mindfuck!
  6. @Nahm Thank you, I always enjoy your metaphors @Dodo I used to be a heavy smoker too, ha ha. Have you read Alan Carr's book? I think it was the very first time in my life when I became aware that I am not my cravings. My alcohol addiction is much sneakier though, I can't even catch the prior thought, it's almost like boom - magically - there is a glass of wine in my hand.
  7. I had a series of awakenings in the last few months yet can't quit drinking specially after I realized that a couple of glasses doesn't necessarily render me unconscious. So I guess awareness alone is not always curative. It seems to be genetic (lots of alcoholics in the family) and karmic - at least that's the answer I got during self-inquiring. Does anyone have any tips or point me in a right direction? Thank you!
  8. This has been discussed here a bunch of times so I am just gonna share this video for whoever is interested. I don't want to sound arrogant, that's not my intent at all here, but the no-thought state doesn't require years of meditation - you can uninstall your outdate OS1 and upload OS2 much faster than that. I am on my third month of self-inquiry+35 minutes of daily meditation+ some chanting in Sanskrit (Nirvana Shatakam+ Gita) (sometimes just listening to it). Almost 80 percent of self-referential thoughts are gone and it feels incredibly liberating. It's not stable yet - the ego does attack with vengeance, as explained here http://happinessbeyondthought.blogspot.com/2018/05/self-inquiry-vs-egosis-how-it-works.html Usually i go through ego/monkey mind attacks every 5 days or so where I have to do self-inquiry almost non-stop: Who thinks she's losing her mind? Who's having this thought?? Who the hell sent you?? and then, like magic, it's still again. I think Gary Weber's teaching is overlooked and lost in this noisy and crowded space. You can find his books online for free. Check it out.
  9. However, that intuition for some reason doesn't arise in the minds of entire world population but in the minds of the very few. Why is that?
  10. Google it, you won't be disappointed
  11. This conversation got a life of its own Here is what I meant by "guidance" : information, books, movies, music manifesting at the exactly right moment, as well as signs (quite literary, on T-shirts I see around town) as well as random conversations I overhear. Syncronicities are mind blowing to say the least. And yes @Faceless, the guidance and the guided are ultimately the same thing, but not all of us at Level 5+ just yet. I believe that Ramana Maharshi knew what he was talking about. Don't you?:)
  12. Do you experience a sense of guidance on your path? Gary Weber ("Happiness beyond thought") says this self-aware field of consciousness is very selective - the awakening happens only to 1/1000 folk. He likes to quote Ramana: "(S)he knows what is best and when and how to do it. Leave everything entirely to Her. Hers is the burden: you have no longer any cares. All your cares are Hers. Such is surrender." Do you feel Her presence in your life right now?
  13. This explanation resonates with me. Yes, you could probably manipulate the content of the dream but is the story line you are trying to create really meant to be for you? I have noticed that whatever I thought I manifested never really worked out the way I invisioned it. Dah! But if you are this space of awareness than EVERYTHING is welcome, both good and bad. A divine dance.
