What is that 'feeling of identity' Is it not just another feeling 'observed'?- not a feeling experienced? What is there other than feelings, thoughts, actions, over and over again.... 'observed'? It feels like 'I' experience them, but rationally seen you're right. Maybe your head somehow 'knows' 'i...

When I play a first person shooter game on a computer I do not identify myself with the person I see walking on the screen. I do. Do you think you're killing real people while playing? I don't, but I also know that they are basically just as unreal as the people I consider to be real. It only feels...

'Ego' is the name that the mysterious thought stream gives to itself. Ok, but how can it be that 'I' identify myself with it? When I play a first person shooter game on a computer I do not identify myself with the person I see walking on the screen. Why do I in the dream called 'real world'? It is ...

So, if there is no such thing as (identification with) an ego, what do you mean with '"Enlightenment" is the annihilation of the sense of personal identity'?

Is there no awakening to the dream? No enlightenment?

I know.........that is not an answer to your question but.....in actuality there is no such thing as 'ego' to become annihilated. Is it the identification with the false ego then, that is to become annihilated? Not to be a smartass, but "who" wants to know?... Really? Check and see who (or what) is...

Welcome to the board Ne0 and fellow Dutchie. Dankjewel! :P It's not my intention to sound harsh, but that there is a shift in Awareness is already one assumption too many. And that there is one to get that shift is assumption number two. Ok, 'I' think 'I' understand that a bit. (It doesn't sound to...

Ok, thanks. :) For now, it just appears to me as 'to see how things are, just see how things are'. But for that I need some open eyes. So I have just to open my eyes, but how? When will my eyes open?

Ok, I'll have to put it another way then: was/is your ego annihilated? :) There can come an apperception that the sense of personal identity is composed only of swirling memories that can never 'see' itself....because there isn't one. Mckenna writes on many levels. If you read him a year from now......

No, but it can be described in a way that someone who has just seen artificial light during his life gets sort of an image of what it is.

Can someone describe the shift of awareness one gets through during enlightenment in an understandable way to those who still don't get it? :)

Thanks! :) I'll see if I can get that book. I like McKenna because his words made me break free of a lot of crappy convictions. But I don't follow the analogy of the attic in which all false attachments and beliefs are stored so you have just to face them and go to the next. He puts it like there is...

How to (not) get into abiding non-dual awareness?

This is my first posting on this board, so hello everyone. I'm Dutch, so my english may not always be correct, excuse me. :) A couple of weeks ago I read two books written by Jed McKenna: 'Spiritual Enlightenment: The Damnedest Thing' and 'Spiritually Incorrect Enlightenment'. Core lesson: to get to...
