  1. @kevin124 Hello. I invite you to take a day off and ponder on this small retreat. 1) 2) 3)
  2. Make a list of everything you take for granted everyday. Then turn it around and start being grateful about them instead of being entitled about them. Soon you’ll see your baseline happiness and appreciation of life shooting through the roofs. A good chat or a little gift from friends or family, a service or art you bought, good behaviors from strangers, decent weather, a dish, your health and ability to move etc...everything you take for granted or feel entitled about, thats the bankruptcy of happiness. On the other hand, gratitude is the currency of happiness. In the final analysis, life is absolutely a zero sum game; a dream which is not really happening in the first place. All of past, present and future is an eternally, non existentially appearance on Beingness. The way to happiness in this system is gratitude and leaving behind the habitual entitlement tendency.
  3. bruh your name is literally ''someone here'' ''No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man.''
  4. @Someone here Now that you've seen stuff; read your posts from 6-12 months before in this forum. What would you tell/talk with that guy?
  5. Thanks for sharing. I am talking about something very similar. These visualization/mental posture are helpful because its all about correcting an error made by mind: Wrong seeing. It sees what is not there in the first place and it fails to see what is the only thing ever present. It sees fragments and objects which are not there in the first place. But it misses the one essence of itself and everything it misinterprets/sees. This seeming mental delusion(!)/wrong seeing is corrected by mental poise/silence/renunciation(Of thought forms). Hope you and your son doing well. And then when the lights come back up, it is still the Void There was never anything apart from That
  6. It seems that way when linguistically expressed. But the actual thing is not at all like this. There is no room for such ideation in that totality
  7. Sit casually and relax totally. Then for a moment imagine all your phenomenal experience has vanished in one swoop. All of it at once. You can visualize some things to make it happen more easily. Like imagining a fast truck which ran over you so fast that all phenomenal experience is gone in a flash. It was so fast and total that you didn't even feel any pain. Or a master samurai cutting you in half from behind so fast that its lights out. ITS LIGHTS OUT. TOTALLY. Right at that moment, you should 'feel' what you really are. The primordial I AM. Everything is gone. But you still are. Independent of any coming or going. That's what you are. That's what you've always been and that's what you'll always ever be. You'll also see that Being is all there is. Nothing more has ever happened other than Being. Nothing ever starts or ends. Being is all there is, complete in itself; no speculation or ideation attached to it. If you can't feel it, you can keep at it. Its not under your control to recognize what you are. Like the example Leo once gave, the donkey in front of the mirror has to recognize itself. And it can only happen by some unexplainable happy accident. All you can ever do is to keep being aware, keep looking
  8. Being the timeless, omnipotent, omniscient, body less god
  9. Valid point here. But you seem to be either willingly or not so willingly being unable to understand what Rupert is trying to convey. What you are repeatedly calling 'THIS'; Rupert calls it as 'Consciousness'. The experience of being Aware. The only experience there ever is, was or ever can be. Simply THIS. Consciousness. Whatever you wanna call it or not. When anyone argues for or against THIS; it still remains THIS. It is unfathomable. Even when it is attempted to grasp, it still remains THIS.
  10. You mean someone has to explain it exactly how you want it on your terms. That being said I found Jed McKenna's comment on Buddhism ironic. ''Buddhism created a whole bunch of Bhuddists, not a single Buddha'' That escalated pretty quickly ?
  11. Why do you even post contents of other authors here? This place already got its curriculum. So you have to talk the talk, dance with the groove, follow the curriculum here in oder to have it accepted/validated. It doesn't matter who you are or what you've realized or not; but you gotta talk the talk of this place. Thats the name of the game pal
  12. An arena where enlightened masters can lock their horns and settle scores is a well deserved demand by now. Cmon Leo tf are you doing?
  13. @VeganAwake Thanks, I'll check out Newman's video. You can call it whatever you want: god, love, peace, consciousness, self, nothing or even refuse to name/define it. They all seem/sound true from certain views, but the definition is always redundant. And arguing about the awakening game; who is more woke, who passed which stage is no different than wall street corporate ladder chimpery. Your profile pic sums it well haha. NOTHING MATTERS
