  1. Less than one. Simply sit in a quiet room and be aware of the silence.
  2. My favorite book! Highly recommended. The author, David Carse, makes it available for free on his website.
  3. @VeganAwake Glad you finally read this one. I knew it was up your alley. It's a special book, eh? Could've probably used some editing (e.g. the chapter "A Parable: Wake Up!" was completely unnecessary) but overall it's awesome. The author, David Carse, has a website that is also extremely useful, filled with helpful pointers.
  4. Recognizing what you are is not a particularly memorable experience (sorry to disappoint you). The 'qualities' or your true nature (mainly the feeling of peace) gradually emerges as you rest in yourself over a period of time.
  5. The actual recognition itself is not an extraordinary experience. Having said that, the peace that emerges from resting as your true nature is something to write home about.
  6. There will be no fireworks when you recognize your Self, no grand epiphany. Recognizing what you are is a very low-key, subtle experience.
  7. @Ellenier Just be, knowingly.
  8. Be aware of being aware. Simply notice the experience of being aware, and rest there. That is resting as awareness. Sometimes it is peaceful, sometimes nothing noticeable happens. If the peace isn't present, it's not necessarily due to doing it wrong. The peace comes and goes.
  9. Yes, women are extremely perceptive and intuitive. If you are needy, they will know it. In my experience, women find you most attractive when you have a "I don't give a fuck" mentality, not caring whether the girl likes you or not.
  10. My guess is these women smell neediness. Which is just as repulsive as B.O.
  11. Thanks bro! Yes, Rupert's pointers are definitely the clearest I've come across.
