I have times where I try to just let go of control, and accept what happens. But when I do this I have a tendance to just lie down, watching movies and eat unhealthy for weeks. In these periods, I feel I'm in lower levels of consciousness, just operating on auto pilot and being less happy. One of my teachers once told me to be like water running downhill, following the path of least resistance. Not trying to do anything. But when I follow this advice I often become so lazy as described over. So it is difficult to make the balance between totally let go vs forcing my self to do constructive activities.Perhaps these cycles you have of working out / vegging out are just the natural cylcles of your biology and you should relax and enjoy them.
My whole life has been about being as constructive and long term effect as possible. So maybe these lazy periods is a sign that I need to slow down, and not taking life so seriously. After these lazy periods I'm often inspired, like I'm now.
I don't know. I have a deep calling to know truth, but some weeks ago there was no motivation there. I have a hard time not judging this as negative/judging my self for not being effective enough. Im not sure if this framing is helpful or not. It certainly doesn't feel good. Do you have any thoughts about this?I'm not sure this framing of positive or negative attidudes is helpful. What do you think?
What about emotions and thoughts?This inquiry is about pointing to the direct experience of the five senses: seeing, hearing, feeling, taste, smell and looking for any sense of self within experience.
Contemplating on this question brought me back to a state I haven't been in for a while. I cant really find this observer. There is only what is observed. These glimpses lasts just some seconds, but I can sometimes access them on when I want.There is experience but no *experiencer* of experience. Can you dig that?
