  1. That's a judgement. The only one who is thinking those thoughts is you, why do feel like you need to be perfect? I was the same, really bad social anxiety, conversation skills etc.. I had to remove the judgements that I had about myself of not been good enough in social situations to actually be good where everything flows freely. So imo, worth looking into why you get thoughts that you think you are socially awkward and need to improve in the first place. It's actually a great time when one feels like that, it's a trigger to do deep inner healing work. Look at it as a positive
  2. Yes, my friend it is the most intimate thing. It just gets overlooked by the fascination with objective experience. Awareness has no objective qualities but is always aware of everything that is going on. The truth is always every present but experience seems so real, it only clouds the truth that is in the background. Imo Nahm has some flaws but each spiritual teacher has their own unique spiritual tone, so it's more important to listen to your heart and what that is saying. Lot's of non-dual teachers have different ways of communicating the uncommunicatible as it transcends all language. But psychedelics can give you glimpses into your true nature but when you get out of them, you are back into egoic consciousness and it is simply a past experience.
  3. @billiesimon @Breakingthewall I agree! maybe it's more important to explain the concept of enliightenment to people as not many people know what enlightenment even is
  4. @Leo Gura I am asking what are the best ways to get people to the non-dual state of awareness though. Non-duality surely is better than ego identified. Do you think they are doing a good job when it comes to non-dual teachings? What are the best ways, in your opinion? Imo it's more important on thinking how to elevate the consciousness of the masses.
  5. I want to know what everyones thoughts are on the direct path non-dual teachers such as Mooji, Rupert Spira, Eckhart Tolle etc... and all the other teachers who focus on self-inquiry is that the most effective way to get people to non-dual states of being by just saying focus on the present moment, we all share our own being. Do you think the audience really understands what they are communicating and is it effective or could a better approach be put in place? I find Eckhart Tolle, Rupert Spira extremely simplifying such profound states of awareness and I am not sure if that is the most effective way of helping others reach that place. They bring up to not search for enlightenment, there is no I, there is no seeker etc.. or well Rupert does anyway. Don't get me wrong, they explain it well, really well. But make it sound so extremely simple & I am fairly certain it just goes in one ear and out the other for most people. What are peoples opinions on the most effective way to teach non-duality? I am pretty sure after an Eckhart Tolle seminar, everyone will just go back to living their ordinary egoic lives.
  6. I think it is due to gaming most of my life but whenever I place my fingers on the floor to do pushups, yoga etc... they typically bend (from the pip joint). How do I go about fixing this issue?
  7. @Moksha Yes I relate to you, I spent most of my life in deep mental suffering but it gave me what I needed to not suffer anymore. To accept everything, just how it is. Suffering is simply a disastisfaction with what is right here and now.
  8. Many people claim to be 'awake' or know everything about spirituality but the real question is do you still suffer and if so why? Do you want to get to that next awakening because of not being awake enough currently, if so why? Imo, a way of look at if someone is so called 'enlightened' or 'awake' or not is simply, does that person still suffer or not? If there is no more suffering, then great but what causes a lot of suffering imo especially in spirituality is the need to be more awake and 'higher conscious' etc.. That inevtibly causes suffering is there is a disastisfaction what what is currently present. A spiritual ego so to speak, claiming awakening but it is just uninspected thought narratives. You can make thought stories about conceptually understanding spirituality but it's actually the removal of those stories. It's easy to say, this is a dream etc... whilst it still remains yet another story that the sense of self builds. It's all to easy for the ego to claim 'that I am awake' but that is not the case. It's using awakening as a way of enhancing the seperate self in order to be more spiritually superior than others. A spiritual delusion so to speak, and it cannot be seen clearly unless one is really honest with themselves. The ego wants to identify with anything but it actually never existed in the first place. It's just thoughts, beliefs, narratives etc.. So my question to you is, do you suffer or not? and if so, why?
  9. You are love. That is essentially who you are, just overlooked by the believing of thoughts.
  10. You already are as you are. There isn't even an ego, it's just thoughts, one after the other. 'I was so conscious' - no one gets conscious. It's all thoughts about becoming awake and conscious. You already are perfect the way you are. Just be careful of the spiritual ego just from experience. It can really co-opt awakening into making something that it is not. Are you awake now or simply referring back to the past which does not exist?
  11. Just focus more on what is wanted and discard what is not wanted. You are then attracting.
  12. Looking for an accountability partner for whoever is interested
  13. I have been abiding in the absolute non-dual awareness for 2 months now and wondering how to best communicate with others in the relative domain. Everything is interpeted through there own filter. Whatever is said, the mind interprets and all my life I was thinking but I don't anymore. It's like immense suffering to continuous states of unconditional love. Not needing to do anything etc.. Becoming life instead of the identification with the mind/body. Just trying to figure out how to most effectively guide people to truth realization. Also there is no me and no sense of being me so there is kind of no-self. Who the hell do I be?!
  14. @Demeter Lol, I was depressed my whole life and now I feel the most unconditional love wherever I am. Beliefs in seperate self's cause suffering. Couldn't see clearly but now I can. Suffering is a good teacher.
