It doesn't just happen

Become familiar with the five broad categories of suffering, and intimately understand the ground on which they all stand.

Only then will you be able to meaningfully call them out for what they are when they come out to play.

The ground on which all suffering stands is misunderstanding. And as this misunderstanding is repeatedly, called out, it inevitably starts to get undermined.

What you are then left with when the undermining is total, is a landscape free of suffering. This is synonymous with peace of mind in daily living, the happiness that wisdom teachings have been pointing at for thousands of years.

Peace for now

Before and next

What happens immediately before determines what happens next.

Be interested

Be interested, repeatedly, of simply knowing the experience of what it is to be alive.

A result

🔱 You, and your experience, in this moment, and in every moment, are a result 🔱

Silence

The pointers are reminding us about peace of mind in daily living, in other words, the end of suffering.

Suffering can be described as the presence of uncomfortable psychological noise, and peace of mind is the ending of the uncomfortable noise, or, contentful silence.

Is your particular seeking leading you to silence or more noise?

Peace for now

Can you imagine?

can you imagine,

what it would be like,

if thoughts, feelings and urges,

which were not our "doing", kept arising,

and drove us to feel and act a particular way?

The end of dualism

Non-duality has little to do with the end of duality. It's about the end of dualism.

Being told how to live life

I've noticed that most people really don't appreciate being told how to live life


well, too bad

"in each moment do exactly what you think or feel to do"

Peace for now

From head to heart ....a little exercise

March 28, 2019

We often hear about a move from head to heart (Being), and it can be hard to comprehend what this is really experientially referring to if it isn't part of our experience.

This shift is often spoken about in relation to freedom, in relation to knowing oneself more fully, more truly, so it's quite an important topic.

So this here, is an attempt to demonstrate what the shift is referring to quickly and simply - it may or may not work over FB post as it usually requires some precision in the delivering of the instructions, but let's give it a go.

Try not to read ahead and follow the suggestions as you go. Here we go:

For the sake of the exercise you'll need to drop into one of your main beliefs about yourself - let's play with this one for demonstration purposes - "I'm really quite unsuccessful" (replace it with one that is more applicable to you, it could even be a positive one like "I'm so cool 😎", or "I need to find my soul mate.")

Pick whichever belief about yourself comes most easily in this moment and really embody it, repeat it a few times, loud and clear in your mind and really believe it.

I'm really quite unsuccessful.
I'm really quite unsuccessful
I'm really quite unsuccessful
I'm really quite unsuccessful
I'm really quite unsuccessful

Close your eyes and really feel what this story or belief feels like, it shouldn't be hard, it's part of your self identity after all.

Repeat it a few more times.

Now, think of the opposite belief, replace the first one with it, and repeat that a few times really feeling what it feels like.

I'm actually quite successful
I'm actually quite successful
I'm actually quite successful
I'm actually quite successful
I'm actually quite successful
..
..
Now, here's comes a final question, don't think about the answer to the following question, just read the question and see what happens, don't read past the question either, just read the question and maybe just drop into Being:

"who are you if you drop both those ideas? "
.
.
.
I hope you found a moment of Being in the heart. A drop from the head to the heart.

Peace for now
