Re: Jill Bolte Taylor: My stroke of insight

I just watched this video and was planning on posting it here when I discovered it was already posted. The thing I find so fascinating is that this woman's experience supports the notion of "awareness" or "consciousness" or "being" or whatever one calls it. And it makes so much sense with what I kno...

birth order effect

This is only a casual observation, but it has been pervasive in my limited experience and wonder if any one else has noticed the following phenomenon.

Hello Aurelia, I'm excited to find a posting from someone in Ann Arbor. I live nearby--in Milford--and am wondering about the event you mentioned. Could you give some details or maybe point me in the direction of a webpage with more info? I've stayed in New York at the Travel Inn which is quite near...

This story--the donkey in the well--has been a nice little signpost for me as lots of dirt seems to be heading in my direction. Thanks for sharing; it really has been helpful in many ways.

A Story...

Here's an enlightened short story, written by Tolstoy: Three Questions - by Leo Tolstoy One day it occurred to a certain emperor that if he only knew the answers to three questions, he would never stray in any matter. What is the best time to do each thing? Who are the most important people to work ...

Hmmmmm

Interesting comment here Clare...I, too, have noticed the aggressive nature of some of the discussions in this forum. I believe that male egos are conditioned to focus on determining their place in the pecking order much more so than females. Everything can easily turn into a competition. Not necess...

Ken Wilber

Does anyone know anything about a Ken Wilber--the "Einstein of Consciousness"? I've been looking for a group of "Tolle" people in my community to meet with, and there is a group in Ann Arbor, MI that discusses Tolle but they are centered around this Wilber guy. I've looked at his website and his bas...

Thanks summer

Thanks for your kind words, Summer...

The suffering that I've experienced over the last few years has pointed me in a great direction so it has, and probably will continue to, serve its purpose.
