Re: Deepak Chopra

A few years ago, I wote to Deepak Chopra via his website asking him the very question you just asked. His response or his people's response (the website declares he answers his own questions but who knows for sure) was that he believes that we are not already enlightened and that to reach a state of...

Re: Somethings about Eckhart that bugs me

Please, spare me with the " your not awake enough just yet, give it some time and you'll understand" bull shit, I did not mean to imply that you are not awake enough. I was trying to convey an experience in which I was irratated by some of the language that ET used only to discover later that my ir...

Re: Somethings about Eckhart that bugs me

Hi SirNikalot, I find it interesting that although it is said that there are many paths to "Awakening", many of us seem to get hung up in the same places. I hear what you are saying about ET...in fact I think I made a comment along the same line over a year ago about how he uses dualistic language t...

Re: Can one be self-sufficient? Do we really need a partner?

Hi everyone.... As long as you see yourself as a separate entity, you will always be clingy and needy. Once you see that you are simultaneously in the world but not of it, what possible need could you have? These are and will be only words until this pointer really sinks into the marrow and that my ...

Re: VEGETARIANS

Excellent answer Onceler.... It is interesting to note that if we look at all life as Energy, then consuming particular type of energy may have an effect on the functioning of the body. For example ,if we consume a rather large animal such as cattle and if that animal was raised or killed in a way t...

Re: Resistance Is Futile Vs. The Fight For Life

Hey Jack, Acceptance does not mean inaction. "You" accept the present moment only, not your story about the present moment. ET uses the example of being stuck in the mud. "You" accept the you are stuck, you cannot change that right now so there is no use in fighting what is already happening. "You" ...

Re: Tips on maintaining presence?

Hi Nick, Some very good pointers offered by members, I would just like to add that it is a good thing to remember that it is never the situation, event, or the person that causes the suffering, it is "our" thoughts about the situation, event or person. If you can remember that when you have the thou...

East Meets West

Hi Everyone, I went to see Eckhart at the Peace Summit in Vancouver. The Dalai lama was also one of the guests. At the lunch break, Eckhart and the Dalai Lama got up from their seats and walked off the stage holding hands. The image of the this little man in a yellow and red robe and this little hun...

Re: A shift in Consciousness

lucy I don't know what you are talking about here but I'd be interested to read more Hi arel, Sorry it took me so long to reply. What I was trying to convey is that once realization takes place, we wonder why we couldn't get it before, because it seems so obvious and simple. But it doesn't seem so ...

A shift in Consciousness

Even though it is said that there is nothing to get, no path to follow, I found there is a shft in Consciousness that makes all the difference in the way we live. And yet, there is no defined means of getting there, it is more like a ripening or an opening up. Once we truley open up, it seems that o...

Re: Why are you on this board?

Thanks for all your answers everyone. But Lucy, I can see why you asked this question ... I think It would be much helpful if you don't define a purpose to be in the forum... And also, I sense a seriousness in your post but I may be wrong... Everyone agrees with you when you say that we must rely on...

Re: Presence and Resumes

Yes, I understand what you are saying Peaceman. What I am talking about is that I think it is far more valuable to talk about something from one's own experience instead of using the experience of others to talk about it. For example. if I asked you what honey tasted like, you would be able to descr...

Peaceman wrote:What value would it have lucy if borris HAD tasted honey? It would still be the same as now....for us readers....just interesting stuff, as borris intended his post to be....interesting. Peaceman
I disagree. I think direct experience is far more valuable then using the experiences of others.

Why are you on this board?

Just curious to know why people come to this forum. My orignal reason for coming here was to seek answers so that I could awaken. It seems many people come here to discuss ideas (I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with that), just curious to know.

Re: Presence and Resumes

But for people who have an awakening and gradual embodiment, this doesn't happen..Also, this doesn't happen for the people who have trained their body to face the sudden enlightenment, for e.g, Yoga... I am interested in how you know this. I guess the question I am asking is: is there a value to de...
