Thanks for sharing, Alicia. The account of your experience is good food for others to imbibe. Once one has a direct experience the teachings of others becomes clarified and deeply meaningful. Following my first foray into meditation in 1973 I came across the teachings of Jiddu Krishnamurti and a few...

Welcome to the forum, Bryan. Stillness Speaks is my favorite Tolle book, but I think listening to it is even better than reading it. Let the words wash over you as he speaks without struggling to understand the concepts, and use the frequent pauses in narration to just rest. At some point you will n...

Nice post, turiya. That is what I do when I write, and especially when responding to posts on waking up. I go to source consciousness/stillness for a while and then begin to compose. Then if something doesn't quite mesh with my intended outcome or feel right then I get quiet again until I am ready t...

Enlightenment/awakening/Observer are one in the same and are revealed as that true and fundamental essence when that which obscures its presence has dropped away. In...
