Re: Dealing with hard-core Christians?

Belief is in the mind and faith is in the heart. I don't have to believe in God because God is everything. I am as I AM. As a seeker of truth, I have faith and know it to be true. Suffering is the key that opens the lock. Many people have the key but think themselves out of using it.

Re: How to deal with my friend's negative behaviour in spite of my own hurt feelings and insecurities

I have first hand experience with this. I love my wife, however, she has the most difficult personality that I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. (Bossy and manipulative are the first words that come to mind). Eckhart has helped me to approach difficult relationships as spiritual practice. ...

Re: Being aware of being aware or resting as awareness?

One has said what wanted to say on "certainty". If you are able to refute any of them then do so and we can look into it. If you can't understand something then ask and i will try to explain but obviously i cannot give you comprehension. As to attacks, one has no idea what you are talking about, yo...

Re: Being aware of being aware or resting as awareness?

Everything created by man was created by thinking. Thinking creates everything you have in your life. Thought makes it so. Everything we understand is from our limited human perspective. Example: We use to think the earth was flat. It wasn't until we distance ourselves from the earth and went into o...

Re: Being aware of being aware or resting as awareness?

You are aware of your awareness. I am aware that I practice awareness with each passing moment. Who is this watcher that is aware of my awareness and thoughts? The first moment of freedom arises when you realize that certain thoughts have been in your head for years, and that they are only thoughts...

Re: Is Eckhart FULLY realized?

Honestly, Mooji and Papaji had me confused for a very long time with a lot of indirect language to make you come up the conclusion that you are God. "You must cut off the head before entering their temple" Eckhart is very direct with his language and doesn't beat around the bush. I for one truly app...

Re: Is Eckhart FULLY realized?

As long as you are alive you will have an ego. You can't stop it. It's like people saying that when they meditate they try and stop thinking. Your brain is an organ that is constantly working and you can't stop it anymore than you can stop your heart from pumping or stop your lungs from breathing.

Re: Is Depression Curable?

I boil it down to sloppy thinking. I am what I say I am. Be careful with your "I am's". I've had depression in the past from childhood events and deaths in my family. I see depression for what it is. It is a product of my mind, but it is not me. Example: I am depressed. I am sad. I am unhappy. I am ...

Re: Guilt and judgement

I've heard a saying before that goes something like this... not word for word, but pretty close. "We carry our memories on our backs like a bag of crap. Sometime we sit the bag down and open it up to take something out. Then we wonder why our life stinks." I think it's important to forgive yourself ...
