I have a question. Is the observer an aspect of the soul or a state of the mind? It feels to me that I can either be in one of three states of being - and I seem to go between all three...(1) totally identified with the body/mind (when I am caught in patterns of behavior etc - though there is an awareness that I am in reaction so perhaps not completely identified), (2) observing the thoughts/feelings/experiences of the body/mind or (3)in a place where the observer is sort of fused into the experience of the feeling/sensations.
I was recently invited to go along to a 'spiritual ' group. I could see people knew each other and were hugging but it didn't feel right I felt very uneasy as I sat down. We did a short meditation and I still felt there was something wrong. I got a feeling of something like a gush of cold air around me which didn't feel good.
A couple of women got up and spoke saying they were not a cult or religion, and to follow what you personally believed.
Someone has come into my life and I perceive them as an aspect of myself that I don't like and don't want to be part of me. I feel that through this person, that aspect of myself is being reflected to me. So now I have recognised it, what next? How do I go about releasing it?
Hello everyone, I am new to this Forum and hope I am not posting under the wrong topic The other day I stumbled upon a lecture about "transmission meditation" here in Lund, Sweden. http://transmissionmeditation.com/
Hi! I am curious about Openhand's approach with regard to boundaries. I have been operating under a belief that boundaries just enhance the idea of separation. However, this is being shown to me over and over again to be only partially true. It seems to me that though in an absolute sense there is no boundary, in a relative sense perhaps one needs to develop and discern a level of healthy boundaries - on a physical, emotional, mental, energetic level.
