I know I'm not an expert, but from my experience with changing appearance, so far, in 5 months I've been able to melt 19 pounds off of my body and still, more is coming off. I've been learning new skills that are teaching me to enjoy the new habits that are essential for being more healthy. For such a long time, that didn't seem possible. I would spend a lot of time just wishing(take note of the word "wishing" for a healthier body) I think when we want to create something for our bodies, we…Continue

"The mind must cling on to something.
It clings on to the body,
clings on to thoughts,
clings on to emotions.
When it can cling on to something, it feels real,
it feels as though it's something solid,
defined, and that feels safe.
Even though there's suffering in…

"The intellectual mind
fixates on subject/object;
me and you;
fixates on defining me, naming me,
defining you, naming you,
with descriptions and judgments attached.
Therefore, you never meet me.
You never meet anybody.
You only meet your idea of the other…

Self esteem is often ignored by many. We grew up in society, where it was not okay to pat ourselves on the back. Mistakes were often penalized as transgressions. Some people are old enough to remember corporal punishment doled out in public…Continue

"There's a bushwalk near my house.
It's not very well kept;
it's quite rough and wild
and because of that hardly anyone walks it.
I can walk 5 or 10 minutes
down the path and
there are no sounds of people at all.
No cars, no noises from houses.

"It's a lot of effort to be a somebody;
a lot of stress.
You have to keep reinforcing
the idea to yourself and others
that you are a somebody.
You have to defend your position,
your opinions, your beliefs, your accomplishments.
You have to keep remembering …

"Awareness cannot be known
by the intellectual part of the mind,
but the mind can and does
recognize awareness through feeling.
It may feel it as peace, as bliss, as love.
It may feel it as formless being,
energy, silence, the witness
or even as a sense of…

"Turn your attention to consciousness.
allow it to arise
but keep your attention
resting in consciousness.
We pay far too much attention
to the noise of the mind
and not the consciousness
that is the essence of mind.…

True happiness can NEVER be achieved with either material items or any social status. Happiness can only ever be achieved from within your heart & soul. If your happy within this will radiate on the outside of you.
People will instantly notice the difference and you will notice the difference in people you come into contact with.
Try it for 1 day… Smile , say thank you until you’ve lost count. Start this from the moment you get out of bed to when you get back in. It might…Continue

"Offer 100 percent attention
to whatever you do.
If you do that,
no matter what the outcome,
you will be fulfilled.
There is no real peace or love
when you scatter your attention
a little here and a little there
or you are attached to the outcome

"There are 4 things required
in order to be able to become
a witness to thoughts.
The first is the full allowing
of thinking to be.
If you try and manipulate thinking
or stop the thinking in any way,
you will not be able to witness it.
It is only in…

"When you immerse your attention
into the peace that is the essence
of this moment,
you find that it is limitless.
It is completely formless
and that formless peace
goes on forever.
The emptiness is so vast
so intoxicating, so fulfilling,
there is no end to…

separate from you
until you define it.
In order to not define it,
you simply remain in awareness.
You do not allow your attention
to leave awareness
to become fixated on thinking;
rather, attention remains…

"Even when you taste
the bliss that you are,
the mind still runs back
to its old assumptions
of what it is.
You experience yourself as consciousness,
then what happens?
You snap back like an elastic band
to assuming you are your thinking again.
