For us as people to be 100% in touch with our hearts, minds, feelings and thoughts is not an easy thing to achieve. Sure many of us are more
aware than some but I think few are TOTALLY aware. I know I’m not but would like to be.
I know the feeling but day by day I am becoming more aware, it is hard because of how we have been conditioned through our cultures and so forth, not
to mention the obstacles facing us due to the state of economy and other obstacles we may face. I look at it this way, when I am not aware of the
present moment “What’s distracting me” another way of putting it is be aware of when you are not aware. Self observation means being in the
we go down this path of self discovery as you say reading books, looking at U tube enlightening videos, trying meditation and generally
trying anything we can to try and discover our self spiritually and physically
It depends how you see the books, internet, and meditations. Is it information to learn how to observer yourself more, or is it a religious belief or
new age belief to tell you who you are and give you false hope. Once that hope is lost we look for something or someone to blame, but wasn’t it due
to our own judgment and trust in the first place.
I read somwhere that Buddha spent 7 long hard years trying to find enlightenment, he then stopped trying and found it.
Maybe he spent 7 years thinking about enlightenment; once he stopped thinking he became enlightened.
Thanks for the reply MG I’m glad you understand and are on the same wavelength as me. This is not about helping people no more for me as I can’t
help people it’s out of my power. This topic was nothing other than me sharing a video, its better this way. I actually find it hard to post on
ATS now; it took me ages to think of what to say when posting the video. I was just going to post the clips but didn’t think it was allowed, the
only reason I find it hard to post is because I don’t want people to put their trust in me. I want them to keep all their trust in their self, if
they put trust in me and believe in everything I say then my words are nothing more than manipulation. It soon becomes easy to reflect my beliefs on
another person just so they agree with what I believe in.
So my ATS posting will be at a minimum, not because I don’t like ATS or anything like that. Simply because I don’t know what to say hehe, gues I
am becoming more and more aware of my ego. If you do get change to watch the videos I’m sure you will appreciate Anthony de Mello’s work.
I feel more in touch with reality when I talk with you MG, gone have the days when we were full of light lightsabers and skipping ropes
