  1. Disciple: Oh wise and all knowing one, take me to the realm of perfect peace. Master: If I take you to the realm, it will no longer be peaceful.
  2. Are there still anger, fear, sadness? Do you see it as evil act or someone's act of love? How unbiased are you?
  3. I'm so slim and trim, calling me fat might come across as a complement actually
  4. The Purple Frog is a species of frogs that was discovered in 2003 in the Western Ghats of India
  5. Yes, same. This work chips away from anger and fear, for sure. Reality is not as threatening as it once used to be.
  6. @Endangered-EGO I hear you! I can go meta on it and let go of all personal attachment, etc. Though it's easier to do when in the comfort of your safe environment, but if my loved ones' life was endangered, I'd have to work through some hard emotions, for sure. Only shows how deeply we're wired for survival on a very instinctive subconscious level.
  7. @Chris_Esoteric By creating challenges that will threaten your survival. But life is already full of them as it is
  8. @SQAAD It's not about dropping our survival skills, it's about the big picture perspective. And speaking of your examples of eating turds and having your finger cut off, if you were starving to death with only a turd available in front of you, you'd eat it. And if you were given a choice between watching your family slowly killed one by one or your finger sliced, I have a feeling you'd choose the latter option? You'd choose the lesser pain over greater? Perspective.
  9. Trust the process @RoerAmit
  10. Hello from sunny Florida
  11. The only things that are biased are concepts, because they're tied up to survival. The infamous phrase 'Curiosity killed the cat'...if the cat was thinking, it wouldn't have gotten killed. If an ant was thinking, they wouldn't have built their ant hill in the middle of the walking path. You get the drift. Biases are a survival mechanism and are conceptual, not actual.
  12. @RoerAmit Also, I haven't watched Leo's last video yet, but from this morning's comments it sounds like he touches on the topic of pain and suffering and gives good perspective on those. I'll be watching the vid shortly, let me know what you think. There is also a thread in Enlightenment subforum about it.
  13. @RoerAmit What helped me in the past is to sit with it and allow it to run through you. Healing takes time and it shall pass too. Observe, don't absorb. Eckhart Tolle has good videos on pain body. We don't have to identify with pain. Please listen to some of his videos, they'll be a healing balm. Much love <3
