Looks like I'm about to get the boot, so please allow me to make a grand exit too, while I still can. :-) Nice chatting with you guys, sorry for any dented fenders.

Read like a normal polite exit to me, but I doubt the plan will work. Well, I hope it will. Best of luck confused, see you on the other side.

Re: Be a window unto the world

What it is pointing to is someone who is pure awareness and no interpretation. Because to interpret what you see, to have an opinion about it, is to know (with content) and subsequently leads to preferences. To "not know" (to not hold opinions) is to be undivided within. Is to be whole. All of the ...

These two quotes seem to be contradictory. One is a direct approach the other requires study and instruction. Seems a little out of step for your previous rantings. Please clarify. Sorry for any muddle. Din was saying "This is not something you can get". Was trying to agree, but also see another an...

This is not something you can get. Because you're getting it means a falling away of you the experiencer. You know, I do agree Din. When I'm in nature I observe that it is my desire to merge with nature that becomes the obstacle to a deeper merger. How did you arrive at the place of being able to s...

Amazing but true: I really liked that post, Phil. I agree with you on that. Well, Ok, cool, thanks. If you wish, notice how this approach is dependant on the solution being simple. It's the simplicity of the solution that forces us to see, "I either open the refrigerator door, or I don't." If the s...

Hi Summer, While it appears that our form is making the choice to be still. It is more true to say that presence is making the choice. Philosophically, it's an interesting question, agreed. Are we living life, or is it living us? Practically speaking, it seems less than helpful to state that somebod...

Hi again Din, thanks for joining in again. We're a good team it seems. I appreciate the inspiration you provide for my writing, and hope I can do the same for you. What is needed, more than silence, is to be still. And this NOT something you can do, it's not something you can find, it's not somethin...

You’re whole post, and many others that you have written, presume that every writer here must be all things to all people. I'm not asking that anybody be all things to all people. Write whatever you are inspired to write, I'll do the same. There are thousands of posts here analyzing and sharing Tol...

Why is the prospect of a process that skips over teachings, and goes straight to the experience of silence, so controversial here?

His whole point seems to be, "FORGET THE WORDS." The truth is not in it. Yes, forget the words, his whole point. Mine too. I am agreeing with Tolle's advice. Why do we, and Tolle, keep on proclaiming "FORGET THE WORDS!" and then continue weaving ever more obscure, exotic and elaborate concepts? For...

Hi again Confused, Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Professor I.B. Blowhard. I am an incurable typoholic, and it's been only 23 seconds since my last bombastic paradigm smashing public opinion. I did my graduate work at Hot Air University, and am well known for my doctoral thesis, "Wh...
