Re: How do you deal with an unconscious spouse?

Hit her with that Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. Look her in the eye and tell her, "Realize that the present moment is all you have, buttercup." Everyday just casually mention how time doesn't exist, how the past and future aren't real. Little by little you Tolle her more and more. Whenever she has...

Re: I had become hyper conscious, suggestions please

Congratulation on not doing drugs! I did them for so long, they messed me up. Totally a lost soul I was doing them in the first place, and it just dug a deeper ditch more then I could imagine. So congrats, never go back to them. Can you explain what you are specifically anxious about? You state, "Is...

Re: Old fears returning

I've had OCD, I can relate. And I'm sorry for your suffering, it does truly suck, but there is hope. Pable, you state, "If I had no free will, it would just do as it pleases endlessly. However, I think I choose NOT to engage in compulsions. How could my brain have two opposing desires that need fulf...

Re: I find the Bible to be the one and only True book there is

I have been a seeker in the past. One of my understandings that I want to put forward is that the Bible is first of all the best written book there is. I have read and studied the quran for quite a while, I have read some of eckhart tolle’s teachings, I have looked into buddhism and other teachings...

Re: Person I spoke with said pure awareness is just psychological mystisicm and new age bs?

Wow, great conversation! Your question: "How would you explain to someone pure awareness without giving them a reason to dismiss it as mysticism bs?" Another will dismiss this due to a possibility of many reasons. If you are trying to prove to them a point, but they really aren't open to listening, ...

Re: Difficulty in observing my thoughts

It's been over a year since I read Eckhart's books and started my journey. Yet, things are only getting worse in my head. I'm literally aware of any thought that comes, and sometimes it's just too overwhelming. It's like I'm walking in the street and a crazy chatter in my mind takes all my attentio...

Re: How do you deal with an unconscious spouse?

It's nice to get advice here, or really anywhere, and if it's helpful then it's just a bonus. And to whom you get this advice from, consider asking them their status of how long they have been in a marriage or if they were ever married, and how that or those relationships turned out. Wouldn't you as...

Re: Overcoming trust issues

I have been cheated on by a long term girlfriend, so I can relate, and I broke up with her because of this. I also developed the idea that what if I married someone and they cheated on me, I developed this fear thinking that would be the worst thing that would happen to me. I know someone that cheat...

Re: OBSESSIVE THINKING

Hello The Count, I think being able to even notice that you are obsessively thinking is a part of the healing process, even though it may not seem like it, cause it actually doesn't feel good and may not seem like it is helping. The fact is, you are able to observe this, this is the work that is req...

Re: To anyone lost, read this, my life from 40yrs of being lost to now!

Hi Waverider! So sorry for not replying sooner, I just noticed your message. Anyway, this process with me finding more of who I am has been a journey. It started a little over a year ago and with learning what Eckhart has been teaching. And I had no clue how to even look at any of this, meaning, my ...

Re: Shall I try and Leave this Alone for Now?

Having your anxiety is your normal. I see a lot of people telling another what is normal and not, and realize, even what another perceives as normal, it is very difficult to understand what their perception is because you do not have the same perception. Anyone who can't relate to what you are going...

Re: Conversation I had about the Bible with my relative

The only way to have a conversation with someone about religion is to be open and willing to try to understand their truth. Anything else may lead to who's right and who's wrong, and the point of the conversation get's lost, or becomes about who is trying to prove their point. So we must ask ourselv...
