    The ego is needed to experience life. Do you want to walk around like a zombie?

    I was quite successful at removing most of my ego.

    And life still goes on. It's spontaneous.

    I don't feel like a zombie. Quite the opposite actually.

    The ego is not false, it is a compression of perception due to the need for survival

    Very good use of words. It does feel like something is being compressed to a specific location which itself is boundless.

    Its like the mind traps our sense of self in the body.

    The mind is the matrix.

    And Leo is Morpheus. 

     


  2. One of the things that had the most impact on my well being is ego death.

    I really want to know how to define ego.

    What it is.

    For me it was a sensation coupled with a thought.

    A sensation somewhere behind the eyes.

    And a thought : "this is me".

    I am really interested in how you guys view ego and what it appears as to you.

    Since I think enlightenment is much harder to reach then ego death.

    And ego death can help reduce a large amount of suffering.

    Thanks and have a good day!


  3. Beautiful answers thank you :)

    The way I see it now is based on something akin to Leo's infinity of gods awakening.

    Other is a telepathic communication of two completely separated realms.

    I just give you a form so it will be easier to have this communication.

    At the same time you give me a form in your separated and isolated reality. 

    In your reality I might be a triangle , in mine you might be a squire.

    It does not violate solipsism since the avatar I'm having the communication with has no experience of its own.

    He is just a vehicle for this telepathic communication.

    Its very new to me so I might just be wrong at the end but those are my thoughts.  


  4. I kind of knew that for some time now.

    But it shook me to my core today.

    There is only you.

    One entity to rule them all.

    It is absolute and total.

    The very fabric of existence is made of you.

    And this play we call life...

    Is a work of absolute genius.

    You have nothing to loose.

    So you made it look like you have something to loose.

    You have nothing to be afraid of.

    So you made scary scenarios.

    You are absolutely alone.

    So you made it look like there are others.

    You have Eternity to play with yourself.

    So...

    Enjoy :)

     


  5. @Princess ArabiaWhen you are identified with ego the self gets lost in an illusion.

    When this bubble bursts you are always the same.

    I recently merged the final duality I had.

    Of the Self and the world.

    Also I believe Its the same self in every one of us.

    But Hindus knew that for a long time.

    I have zero effort in my experience.

    Like everything is just alive.

    And to move feels alive to me.

    That's why I move :)

    I feel so much bliss.

    Like our natural state is that.

    To exist is enough.

    Being itself Is blissful.

     

     

     


  6. @Yimpa of course I was not talking about the body.

    I did an experiment.

    My imagination is very strong but I rarely use it.

    So I just started Imagining things.

    What ever I want materializes instantly.

    It became so boring.

    After a few seconds of that I realized why we have limitations.

    Because true freedom cannot be without some structure.

    Without structure being is chaos.

    With some structure being becomes free.

     

    "Between here and there,

    I choose here."

     


  7. @Princess Arabia When you realize what you are you don't become something you were not before.

    You were always your true Self.

    As @Davino  put it very nicely you just were not conscious of it.

    Leo said in one of his videos that the bad news is there actually no process that can get you enlightened.

    You can only increase the possibility. (quite dramatically in my experience)

    For me time is just a way to view motion.

    That's why the faster you move time slows down.

    There is a deep connection between the two.

    So I think time dose exist since motion exists.

    what creates the player? 

    The player was never created.

    It is like the space that holds every experience.

    You are quite correct.

    The best description for him would be the void.

    If you remove everything that can be removed, you think you would be left with a blank.

    But you will be left with yourself.

    Where is the real essence?

    I'm not sure I got this question :)

     


  9. Real and Imaginary are just concepts of the mind.

    Reality is neither.

    What remains when your mind is at peace is beyond description.

    You love yourself too much to deceive yourself with other non existent beings.

    The way I see it is if the Self wanted to have just one bubble of experience it will not create any illusions of others.

    And if you have a solipsistic view why post here? If we are all imaginary.

    I have been in my own solipsistic bubble for quite a while and it felt very unhealthy.

    From an ultimate perspective you cant know for certain that others have their own experience or not.

    But if there is a possibility they do you should live assuming they do.

    Just because its a more healthy way to live. 


  10. @Princess Arabia For me it felt like a miracle. I wasn't even meditating just out in nature in a beautiful place.

    I have been on the journey to enlightenment for a long time but the moment I discovered it felt like divine intervention.

    I think Leo is correct by saying in one of his videos that it basically comes by fluke luck.

    When I was going home afterwards I realized that if I had not put in all that work it would not feel so worth it.

    So I think by meditating and doing contemplation you increase the chances for it to happen but when it dose happen its spontaneous.

    @Breakingthewall Something came up to me after reading what you said. To taste the Infinite there are two ways:

    One as Leo describes is the upward movement of consciousness. Being more and more Infinite.

    The other Is towards pure emptiness. The downward movement.

    The insight is that the upward has no end , you become more infinite but never reach true infinity since you cant count to infinity.

    The downward (That is practiced in Zen) has an end and through it you can know the infinite.

    Since infinity is equal to zero.

    For me its experientially verified, when I focus on reality being empty or focus on it being infinite I get to the same experience.

    To your post now.

    I recently awoke to what other is after struggling a lot with solipsism.

    But I say other only in a sense that It has its own bubble of experience.

     The Self that I am is exactly the same Self that you are.

    So in that sense there is no other.

    In order for you to have your bubble of experience and me to have my own they have to be separate.

    The Self experiences all possible bubbles at once.

    But it doesn't mean that one bubble has access to another bubble.

    If something is unclear you can ask and ill try to be more precise.

    The awakening to other is very new to me.
