So much honesty here, abiding in awarenss after living a life of conditioned learnings is an adjustment. I have found seeking and searching to be the antithesis of what has been available always present. I was looking for the complexity and overlooked the utter simplicity of Tolles' guiding pointers...

Silence cannot be sold but all Masters and teachers who earn money from there teachigs are still spending the money on something. Some objects or forms that exists beyond just sitting in stillness and being. I love Tolle's work and Ken Wilbers also I spent a little more on Tolle's New Earth but that...

I think too it's important to 'be a light unto yourself' rather than always seeking answers in others; it's important to know what doesn't need to be known and what does need to be known, and sometimes simply to surrender to the not knowing. Flower, perfect! Others tell there version, but you have ...

My view of "God" has shifted from "father figure" to "loving source". I am attempting to fit "prayer" into all this. Is it really then, manifestation? Would someone be so kind as to help walk me through this one? Thank you very much! I find stillness itself to be a wonderful state to be in because ...

When I was a young boy I layed out on my lawn and got lost in the immersive experience and pure joy of looking into the night sky, I saw so many stars and my young mind voyaged towards them, that was the remeberance point for me, I realize now my own awareness completed that view of eternity. Before...

"Simple people conceive that we are to see God as if he stood on that side and we on this. It's not so; God and I are one in the act of my perceiving him". wow. Thanks for that one John Your welcome, when I read it I had to share. I found it simple yet very profound. You also commented: It is like ...

From "Spectrum of Consciousness" pg.288 "_Ken Wilber The chapter is powerfully titled "That which already is". The Zenrin poem states it perfectly. " If you understand, things are just as they are. If you don't understand, things are just as they are". And Eckhart(not Tolle but Meister) defines as f...

My take is that our brains and ego’s in there insatiable quest for more and conclusions of what things mean gets hammered when there is no answer. The brain insists there has to be “gestalt” a wholeness as it were. My view is duality itself contains the answer. If we adopt an awareness (or concept) ...

You asked, "where are beliefs?" 4600 posts on this forum, plus tons more on forums elsewhere. Hundreds, maybe thousands, of now books, tapes, seminars, retreats etc. A small mountain of thought and belief, growing ever towards the sky. Observation lies at the heart of now, so just trying to observe...

thanks for your input. This "abiding in awareness" which you speak of, has it deepened to a point where you see everything as one, and if so, how do you know it is not just a belief or a concept? In my own life at this point I have a foot in both worlds. I have moments of clarity but life situtatio...

I think thought and awareness can coexist in total harmony under the following conditions. When the self realizes thought as formations of energy in the mind and respects and doesn't make a self out of that energy thought is useful. Accepting all our complex facets seems, in my view important. Abidi...

Part of surrender to what is includes the dropping of "trying" to understand with the mind. The "efforter" pushes the mind to get it. While the mind is important it isn't who you are, what is witnessed cannot be your true self. You are awareness because as you may notice nothing else is permanent. T...
