just a question of you did secifically and how often directed at those of you who've achieved it or something similar. I've been listening to Eckhart Tolle for years now, and have been regularly meditating for 1 year. I'm getting closer. I've had maybe one or two moments of real presence. 

where are you guys at in your level of presence and No Mind?

I've been using headspace, it

I've been using headspace, it has daily guided mediations. Not every day is a good meditation day, but I always feel at least a little better doing it. I reach a great feeling of presence maybe 3-4  times a week.

Constant no mind sounds like an empty goal. There is always going to be mind and emotional activity, it is the ability to deal with them that improves.

One way to see consciousness

One way to see consciousness and no mind is like being in a well. Your general state of mind is the level/depth you happen to be at in the well. A lot of people are at the bottom, but some are sort of "out" of the well, can even find themselves in it and climb out when they feel/recognize that inner rhythmic tension inside. Your consciousness does NOT have to simply slip right down to the bottom of the well as soon as you lose focus or sight of presence. Teachers like Tolle or Dyer or even myself can teach you to install hooks to hang your conciousness on so to speak. There are "understandings" that once gained simply don't allow you to sink back into bullshit and inner depravity.

I have been at it for a year

I have been at it for a year and a half now. I cannot put into words how much better my life is because of it. Right now, I'd say I am quite present and flowing 80%-90% of the time, plus a meditation-induced ecstacy every few months... I am assuming you are quite familiar with the big picture of presence now, so you might really benefit from reading something like Osho's "The Book of Secrets". It has 112 meditation techniques in it, and LOTS of tips. You dont have to learn them all, you just need to find only ONE  technique that clicks with you (or several) and keep going with it.

What exactly are the obstacles stopping you from being present? Maybe I have had something similar and I can help.

Release Technique has a

Release Technique has a process for letting go. For me when I'm doing it after a while my mind stills and I can clearly perceive there's me and there's the mind's activity wanting to create a character with a story and identify with the character it creates. It seems like for it to operate it has an operating system and it needs a character like a point of reference from which calculates and analyzes.

Yesterday I was working on this for hours and it was really powerful....ask yourself "who am I" and then observe the mind quickly spin up an answer as well as create some sense of identity, that you're a character wanting or trying to get somewhere/something.

It's a convincing illusion the mind creates and quickly uses the stories it spins to distract you into identifying with what it's creating. By asking the question over and over you keep seeing your mind creating the illusion and you break out of it. It's like a hypnotic trance your mind keeps wanting to put you into. By asking the question you strengthen your ability to recognize and disidentify with the content of your mind.

i've been listening to some of Osho's audio books since you posted this. i dont have the book of secrets yet becuase it's only available as a book but I'll get my hands on it sooner or later.

ok, so what does being present and flowing 80%-90% of the time and also the meditation induced ecstacy feel like? what were you doing every day to get there?

i'm also listening to Andy

i'm also listening to Andy Shaw's A Bug Free Mind - which is mentioned by Jabronovich. Shaw is pretty big on Tolle, too. I've been using his 15 seconds/minutes of happy thoughts exercise.

Constant No Mind? Easy...

Constant No Mind? Easy... have a neurosurgeon take your brain out. Solved. XD

But seriously constant No Mind ain't realistic unless you're a monk going for enlightenment and dedicate your entire life to it. Even then those guys are still human. We are living breathing thinking feeling organisms.

From my research and experience it comes down to 2 main things:

1) Release Negative Emotions - especially from past traumas/painful experiences. Negative emotions based on our perception of an event (events are neutral until we give them meaning of good or bad in our mind) are what anchors negative thoughts/beliefs and keeps them constantly ruminating in our mind. Letting these emotions go frees your mind of the constant cyclical BS/negative thoughts/images that our subconcious mind replays on autopilot.

EFT and/or FasterEFT are the best tools for this imo; PSTEC, Release Technique, Sedona Method, and Focusing are all good though. They all rely on our bodies own natural ability to let go of negative emotions by letting them run their course instead of suppressing, avoiding or escaping them with addictive behaviors. Also keep a stress log by writing down a list of current stressors in your life - correct the ones you can change and let the rest go.

2) Daily Mindfulness Meditation - What mindfulness meditation really teaches you is to not just blindly follow your thoughts and feelings. It trains you to acknowledge them and then respond how you wish instead of just reacting on autopilot with your standard programmed/conditioned kneejerk reaction.

So instead of just reacting to the feeling of 'oh shit I should try to pull this chick but I'm scared' and then doing what you always do and not pulling. You'll have the presence of mind to acknowledge the feeling/thought and then respond in a different way.

Meditation is also like a vacation. Your own private quiet place to relax and reflect in the gift of the present moment. And give your brain some much needed R&R.

At least 10 minutes a day of meditation.

Yesterday is history

Tomorrow is a mystery

Today is a gift

That's why they call it the present
