Well, that may be your problem right there. You titled your post "When Aggressive People...." Where does aggression show up in you?

Re: a (draft) letter I intend to send to Adyashanti...

Great letter, and you may want to consider easing up on all of the quotation marks. It's okay to say that you encountered or heard something, and that you experienced ups and downs. Adya is aware of your true essence.

Re: Missionary Zeal

Key Master, I am sorry for your loss. I think what you wrote is an important reminder. There have been spiritual teachers and followers throughout time that have justified inactivity by stating, "Everything is as it should be". But there is no reason to sit idly by while a person suffers. If I remem...

Re: the one grudge i cant drop!

Hi Void. I feel as though you could be helped greatly by using the four questions of Byron Katie regarding the situation with your father. Your belief, "My father should help me out financially" bears some examining. If you're not familiar with Katie's work, here are the four questions: Is it true? ...

Re: How is your sleep?

E1lycat, I hope I don't come off as the "Chicken Little" poster here, spreading fear, because that's not my intent. However, as a trauma nurse, I'd have to caution anyone against falling asleep with a lit candle next to them. The potential for a fire is too great. I had one patient who did that. The...

Re: The Power of Now

I am a strong believer in biochemistry and the brain. It could well be medications affecting her or her own natural biochemistry that is the cause of her black hole? Peaceman, Nurmi wrote that his or her friend is not on meds. It is Nurmi's son that suffers from depression. Nurmi, I agree with Sigh...

Re: Drug Addiction and Enlightenment

But I've managed to gain five pounds!
Yes, but Spokane's had just a wee bit of snow recently, no? :wink:

I would think that after enlightenment addictions would die down for most. There wouldn't be a driving need to escape the present moment.

Re: Discussion: The Johnny Tolleseed Project

Onceler, if you look at the list, you'll see a number of downloadable audiobooks. However, the system currently doesn't allow them to be saved to a PC for downloading to an IPod.

Re: Discussion: The Johnny Tolleseed Project

Here in Portland, Oregon, we are blessed to have a wide assortment of Tolle offerings in our public library system. I have borrowed many of the Sounds True CD sets and downloaded them into my IPod. I love listening to these talks as I walk my dog every day. Here's what's available in our library: Th...

Re: brain chemistry

Be reminded that the "monamine hypothesis", i.e. a chemical imbalance causing depression, is only a theory with no actual proof. It was a convenient way for big pharma to push their drugs. So when a person became depressed he could say "oh, I must have a chemical imbalance, that's it!". The real ch...

Re: The Diamond in Your Pocket, by Gangaji

A few weeks ago, I borrowed the audio version (read by Gangaji) from my library, and downloaded it onto my iPod. I absolutely loved her message. Her voice is quite soothing to boot. I then borrowed the book last week, and I'm glad I had the audio version first. I don't care as much for the book. It ...

Re: meditation

I mrdc there is a Tolle recording called Gateways To Now that I am always plugging, (I actually heard about it first through Heidi) you might want to check it out also, it gives a specific exercise of getting in touch with the energy field of the inner body. It helped me do that more. It opens a wh...
