  1. You are limiting yourself. From the moment I wake up till the moment I go to sleep I am practicing self inquiry, and yes I have work and other shores to do and still able to apply it all the time with barely any distractions. So no more excuses. just do it! Formal sitting practice is important, but what about the rest of the day? you are going to let your mind wander again".
  2. Google Jed Mckenna, there are many suspicious claims about him.
  3. Great book! I haven't read it all (I probably won't because I rather use that time for practice ) But kudos to you
  4. Hopefully its a positive answer , else why write a book about enlightment?
  5. Your first enlightenment post, you say for all day to be aware of the breath and then you say of this awareness... which is it? did you practice being aware of the breath all day or just awareness being aware of itself? (not objects) When you say you don't have any mental noise... do you mean thoughts as in images of hot girl undressing in front of you or verbal thoughts such as... "I am going to have to do some shopping"? I guess you dissolved the "I"?
  6. Of course! Extreme bliss and love for the divine, while tears of joy and happiness and a sense of freedom. The self is beautiful
  7. That's what I am saying, some ask very simple practical questions and there is no answer. I have no interest in such questions like you stated above, as they are just concepts... the whole point is to experience it from direct experience. Until few weeks ago I didn't know what the phrase "seeing the self in everything, seeing god in everything" means... Now from direct experience I am experiencing this what was a mere concept, fantasy/imagination for me. That's why I keep repeating on this forum that only practice is what will bring results and not listening to hours of conversations with gurus that talk about the absolute truth
  8. Yes, i am not looking for answers. But I did watch his videos, and when a person asks him a question.. he doesn't give answer to that question. PS: all the answers are the self.
  9. Perhaps because you have too much expectations what one is like when putting many hours a day meditating. As long as there is an ego this is what it is. I can be all day in a sea of bliss and love... doesn't mean I am going to be kinder to anyone and not state my true honest opinions. Let's keep it real.
  10. I don't want to do any work? I bet I am practicing more than any of you on this forum. If that guy cant give any very basic simple practical advice then I really feel sorry for those who turn up to him. Also I am not looking for any answers. It's pointless and useless as whatever he tells you what the truth is etc... It's just a concept for me... What counts is direct experience. And how do we get direct experience? That's right. By the effort of practice. If one doesn't get the phrase "seeing the self / god / Devine in everything" With practicing that concept will be revealed through direct experienece .
  11. Yes, because maybe he fails as a teacher and I should listen to someone that actually knows how to respond to a person. If he can't answer a simple question about practical advice, that's pretty bad... If ramana can, why can't he? I don't get it why most people on this forum are looking up to those who are popular on social media, and really they aren't that impressive. Trust me if you dig a little bit deeper, you will come along beings that are pretty much not known at all to the majority and are liberated as much as ramana and all those other ancients jnani yogis are. PS: direct questions = direct answers = value. for your own sake avoid people that go around the question or not answering it at all. Have you thought maybe why all those gurus are so popular on social media?
  12. Don't like him. People ask him a question and he doesn't get to the point and directly answer it. And in the end he really doesn't answer the question like the practioner asked. Next!
  13. From the Manonasa: A Spiritual Autobiography by Michael Langford: There is no truth in the commonly held belief that if someone claims to have attained the same enlightenment as the Buddha that means they have not attained the same enlightenment as the Buddha. That is a false belief. The same applies to someone who claims to have attained Self-Realization or someone who claims to have attained Manonasa The same applies to someone who claims to be a Jnani or someone who claims to be a Jivan-Mukta. YES a person can have attained Manonasa, Jnana, Jivanmukta, Self-Realization or Nirvana and say so. The ego-mind invented the idea that they cannot say so. The Buddha said he had not attained the final enlightenment until he had realized the Four Noble Truths. That means the Buddha just told you he has attained the final enlightenment. It is not egotism for the Buddha to tell you he has attained the final enlightenment. The buddha is just telling you the truth when the Buddha tells you he has attained the final enlightenment. It is not egotism for the Buddha to tell you what has happened. It is true that he had attained the final enlightenment. In that particular case the Buddha stated it directly. However, if you include all the times the Buddha implied that he had attained Nirvana, the Buddha did that hundreds of times. IT was never egotism any of those hundreds of times. The Buddha was just telling you the truh. When Annamalai Swami was asked if he was permanetely established in the Self Annamalai Swami said Yes. IT was not egotism for ANnamalai Swami to say Yes. Annamalai Swami was just telling you the truh. Annamalai Swami was just stating a fact. When muruganar wrote an entire book telling you about his experiences and told you in hunderds of different ways that he had attained the final Realization of the Self, he was not being egotistical. He was just telling you the truth. He was just telling you what happened. He was just stating the facts. When Lakshmana Swami described his Self Realization in the book No Mind I am The Self it was not egotism. Lakshmana Swami was just describing what happened. When Papaji wrote about his own enlightenment in his diary, Papaji was not being egotistical Papaji was just writing a fact. When nisargadatta Maharaj says it only took him three years of practice to realize the Self that means Nisargadatta Maharaj just told you he has Realized the Self. Nisargadatta was not being egotistical. He was just stating a fact. Nisargadatta is just stating the truth. Nisargadatta is just telling you what happened. The same applies to all of the different ways that Nisargadatta communicated his state like telling you he has no body, and the talk is occurring in your world only. When Michael says that in January 2005 he attained Manonasa he is not being egotistical. he is just telling you the truth. He is just telling you what happened. He is just stating a fact. Would you like all those Sages to lie to you and say that it did not happen, just because almost every spiritual seeker believes that those for whom it happened cannot say so? Most people would answer that question no. Most people would be lying. Almost every spiritual teaching that has ever existed in the history of humans has been for the purpose of preserving the ego Illusion. Those teachings are not for the purpose of ending the ego illusion. That includes almost all of the spiritual teachings that claim they are for the purpose of ending the ego illusion, almost all of those teachings also are not really for the purpose of ending the ego illusion. Almost no human wants to end the ego illusion even if they lie to themselves and think that they do want to end the ego illusion.

  15. It's important to stress that you should ignore everything else for favor awareness watching awareness, or the I-feeling/sense. Mind shouldn't go towards objects, if it does just return to awareness just watching it self.
  16. This is good progress Purifications are happening
  17. Stay tuned and find out for the next exciting episode of Who "wakes Up" In Your Dreams!
  18. AKA as neo-advaita. Persons like that are all there for words play. Just ignore them. they don't hold any value for us to progress. Only one with a strong sense of liberation will success.
  19. Not only that, at some point they just quit. Or they get an "awakening" experience and then they think that that's it and nothing more is done to progress further. And it's those people that start to write books, make videos, deluding themselves that they have realized the self.
  20. Yes because they aren't . I have very high standards of what self realization is.
