  1. Cool topic... yes in my experience you become more vulnerable because you drop the layers of body armor that the ego has built since the time of birth because it believes it's a limited lacking separate self. Interestingly enough, further on in this journey you become invulnerable because you realize you are not the self anymore at all, so there is no one there to be injured. When you realize your true nature as conscious awareness you have transcended being injured by egos. In truth you are perfect and always have been and need do nothing. That is enlightenment & the end of suffering my friend. Continue on you are doing great ❤ ❤
  2. @LfcCharlie4 your words have a lot of experience and meaning behind them would you mind telling me a little story about your Awakening experience like how long you've been going through it. ❤ If not I understand you can private message me as well ❤ thanks
  3. I agree with everything you said ❤ The signs and maps are pointers and not the territory. I agree we are not even close to being there yet but I try to stay optimistic and people are waking up quickly. 😃
  4. That's awesome yes a grounded openness is a perfect position. Yes absolutely when you drop all the layers of armor you've collected since birth you become completely vulnerable and simultaneously invincible because there is no one here to get injured anymore. The Personal me is seen as an illusion and what isn't real cannot get injured anymore.( this of course take some time to sink and it's not immediate). You become curious and excited like like a young child seeing the world for the first time again with new eyes(reborn). You feel weightless and unburdened and available to start living life for the first time. There are lots of little phases but when everyone is seen as you and the unconditional love starts flowing you know you are getting close to home. Everything starts becoming beautiful again which it's always been ❤

  6. @silene Most of this material describes taking the middle path staying neutral and not becoming attached. He didn't believe in beliefs and he always described himself as nobody. He was wealthy but didn't need wealth. The great way is not difficult for those who have no preferences ❤ When we fully accept the isness of each moment we do not suffer. Resisting the present moment is what causes suffering. The ego loves to have an opinion on the way it prefers things to be 😃 Nobody can enter the gateless gate so be nobody ❤
  7. It sounds like you need more self-love/ accepting yourself the Way You Are... positive affirmations are a wonderful tool for this: "I accept myself exactly the way I am"(100 times a day in a mirror) ❤ "I love myself unconditionally and right now"(100 times a day in the mirror) ❤ "Loving myself makes me feel good"(100 times a day in mirror) ❤ Start off with these and see how you feel within a month....😃 Its all love!!
  8. If a man is crossing a river and an empty boat collides with his own skiff, even though he be a bad-tempered man he will not become very angry. But if he sees a man in the boat, he will shout at him to steer clear. If the shout is not heard, he will shout again, and yet again, and begin cursing. And all because there is somebody in the boat. Yet if the boat were empty, he would not be shouting, and not angry. If you can empty your own boat crossing the river of the world, no one will oppose you, no one will seek to harm you…. Who can free himself from achievement, and from fame, descend and be lost amid the masses of men? He will flow like Tao, unseen, he will go about like Life itself with no name and no home. Simple is he, without distinction. To all appearances he is a fool. His steps leave no trace. He has no power. He achieves nothing, has no reputation. Since he judges no one, no one judges him. Such is the perfect man: His boat is empty. Osho Rajneesh
  9. I agree, oneness is the biggest picture understanding. 98.9% of the planets population does not understand this and or know how to implement nonduality into their everyday lives and so they suffer. They want the sweet without the bitter the good without the bad the payoff without the understanding. The only thing required for nonduality is the highest understanding that everything is non-dual and couldn't be otherwise....❤
  10. Everything requires an opposite for contrast. You need dark to have light you need up to have down you need left to have right you need good to have bad and so on. Suffering is caused by ignorance of this fact and resisting what is. ❤
  11. They may if they wanted and if they couldn't they wouldn't...😃
  12. They would accept it and therefore eliminate a lot of unneeded suffering. Resisting what is, is the cause of most suffering on the planet.
  13. You connect to it by being aware that you are being itself. No need to seek for what you already are. ❤
  14. I was wondering what you guys thought about this Marianne Williamson quote from her book "a return to love"? Apparently it gets confused quite often as a quote from Nelson Mandela but it was her original quote: "Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others". Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles" Please share what you think...❤
  15. I understand everything you said. Thank you ❤ ❤ ❤
