HAIETMOBA revisited(?)

Posts: 158 Join Date: 5/28/12 Recent Posts
I'm obviously really sorry to dredge up the ghost of AF on here, and I haven't really been on the DhO for quite a while.....

But I've been asking myself 'How Am I Experiencing This Moment of Being Alive' quite a lot in the last few days whilst trying to recover from a COVID-induced near-nervous breakdown.

And it just seems to work so well in bringing one into the present, whilst also highlighting the feeling-tone of present moment. Far better than other forms of self-inquiry such as 'who am I', 'where am I' or 'Am I aware of being aware'......

I obviously don't want to get into massive fights about PCEs etc - but I just wondered if anyone else uses this pointer?

I realise it was thought that this wasn't actually the AF practice but I just wondered if anyone has used this to try and progress on the Buddhist path?

I think that outside the AF community of practitioners, this is called "mindfulness."

Hi Robin,

Sorry to hear about your post-COVID problems. It sounds very unpleasant.

Anything which works to point you towards the present moment is good. When it's working great, and when it's not there is HAINETMOBA - How Am I Not Experiencing This Moment of Being Alive? emoticon

Best wishes for your health and wellbeing,
George
