Re: Trying to get it

A consideration.. I used to do some meditation for educating and changing bad behaviours and emotional tendencies.. Like changing greed to generosity, hatred to kindness, anger to calmness.. Noe I'm trying to observe and "stay on the feeling" without changing it.. I wonder.. How do these meditations...

Re: Trying to get it

I think that I get what you say.. You mean to be fully in your state/emotion, whatever it is, without trying to change it. This is beautiful. Maybe the tension to avoid that I was referring to is not meant to be towards a goal, but towards changing the feeling itself. I will try to do that.. I think...

Re: Trying to get it

It's a super simple question, but the answer is far from easy..

The first answer that comes into my mind is.. tension towards something (or away from something, which is still tension towards something else)..

Re: Trying to get it

In my present experience I must say that yes, I do feel very incomplete.
I would, but I can't say otherwise.
I'm caught in problems, and I miss peace actually

Re: Trying to get it

Sorry dir the delay, I have been busy. So, what should I start from..? A meditation? An observing..? Or what? I think that the reality that I can experience is that in contact with my mind.. But how can I extend it to everything else..? Or to others mind? I can't experience their world So it's true ...

Re: Trying to get it

I mean.. I know it's a bit off topic, I was just curious about what are the implications of this way of thinking. Apart from that, I can experience what is outside this body, just about the small portion that is directly in contact with it. What you say, is that I shouldn't locate my mind, but exten...

Re: Trying to get it

Thank you, this video is exceptionally beautiful. Actually it reminds me of one thing. In the past (but I'd say also in the present) I have got quite involved in energy, chi-kung stuff and so on. There are many teaching for accumulating energy. But my idea has always been the same: if you create a b...

Re: Trying to get it

Thank you for this video.. This amplify the perspective. I was reasoning about myself, but actually it excluded the nature itself, as it is. Yes, feeling a part of a bigger picture put everything in a different perspective and downsize a bit our role, our "ego". What makes me feel "different" from n...

Re: Trying to get it

That said, let's try to respond to your (puzzling) questions.. First, what do you mean with "life"? All things happening outside? I don't know.. I think that the content of my mind doesn't go out, so somehow there is a separation. Also, I reflect that "life" for me is just the part of life that I ca...

Re: Trying to get it

Well, ok.. I must clarify that I'll always choose truth over religion hands down. For this reason, I have to say that whatever terminology I use, the concepts come from reasoning, not from belief, or at least from a combination of both, where the first takes the lead. Buddhism means "realizationism"...

Re: Trying to get it

Thank you, I watched the video, which was beautiful. after seeing it, I realized that I didn't express well my thougth. Bad feelings, I uderstand what you mean, even if I don't actualize it that much.. My antidote is much more "sutra way", that is like: 1 - I have to feel that I've done my best, so ...

Re: Trying to get it

Actually, I can't talk properly about something I didn't experience myself. I can just say that most teachings, like the Buddhist which I consider highly valuable, because they are based on reasoning and experience, say that most problems come from our clinching to our self and our sense of "I". Of ...

Re: Trying to get it

Hello..! Thank you very much. Actually, I was afraid to have engaged you for too long 😁🙂 In fact, I want to go deep, get to the core and cut trough all conflicting/disturbing emotions. Becoming able to take the distance from conceptual mind, I imagine that I would be more free, that I would see my a...

Re: Trying to get it

P.S. There were a translation mistake.. I used the term "dull" instead of dumb, meaning ironically that I didn't see the truth yet. Of course I'm still very eager to see.

Re: Trying to get it

Oh, ok... I don't know why,but I had this feeling. I hope everything is and will be fine for you. I would like to let you know that even if I didn't get to the point yet, everything you said is and still will be running in my head, so the moment I will understand it will be also thank to your advice...
